A new week, a new batch of books–both books finished and being read. Today is…

[Crazy time-traveling adventure. It took me a couple chapters to get into it and learn the characters, but once I did, it was full steam ahead. Wonder what it would be like to travel back to Columbus’s voyage in the 1490s? Here is your ticket.]
[Story for older teens told in photos, illustrations, collages, music, newspapers, and much more. A different kind of graphic novel that brings the idea of story to a new level. I think I’ll lend this one to my colleague Mr. Peterson.]
[What is Christmas about? GIVING. This fits right in with the chooseKIND message. I was able to meet the author Jill Hardie at Monkey See, Monkey Do bookstore where she signed the book that I purchased. I also bought a couple others for gifts. Nothing say Christmas like GIVING…… giving good books.

[I’ve had this ARC on my Kindle for a while now and have been waiting until the publication date (March 1). I’m looking forward to having more time to read about this young Polish Jew struggling to survive the Nazi invasion. I’m always amazed by books that are based on trues stories.]
