Books: Stillwaters Style!

Books: Stillwaters Style!

Books are on my mind this week!

booksFirst, the American Association of University Women is having a HUGE booksale at the Lewis County Mall, today and tomorrow.  What a great opportunity to try some new authors, find some favorite authors and just plain donate to a good cause.  All proceeds go to local scholarships for young women attending college.

Second, I was just reviewing AARP’s 12 best books for 2014 and it reminded me of why I love to read.  New adventures, mysterious circumstances, puzzles to figure out and crimes to solve for starters!  Check out the list at:

Harolds-Planet-never-stand-between-me-and-a-pile-of-books-540x516Third, I just went to my first ever book club meeting last week after having read “Harriet the Spy”. It seemed odd at first to be reading a children’s book and then think about discussing it with a group of readers.  It was really quite interesting (and sometimes startling due to Harriet’s naughty character) to read and then at the meeting to learn more about the author.   The most fun was to hear other readers impressions and thoughts.  A fun new experience to keep my brain active and thriving!

Last, don’t forget the great lending library we have here at Stillwaters Estates.  The Gathering Place is home to many books, of all varieties and interests.  With our faithful librarian, Alice Arens, we have an organized and ever-changing library.  Ours is a “take what interests you and return it when you are done” library so no library cards to deal with!

Whether you are a reader of books, tablets or on your computer, this is a great time of life to try new authors, take new adventures and choose something to read that you wouldn’t normally choose.  It keep’s things interesting!

Quote of the Week:

It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.

Rhody2015We will continue to have cloudy rainy weather for the next week or so.  We even have a chance for some near freezing temperatures overnight next Wednesday and Thursday.  The start of spring is just teasing us I think.

Have a great week and enjoy the blooms and blossoms out and about the neighborhood.
