I’ve been working for Mid-Continent for over a decade, and over the years, I’ve seen the information guides change. First, it was the For Dummies series, followed closely by The Complete Idiot’s Guide. While both were popular, they were shortly trumped by the Everything Guide, a series that seemed to catch on in every section of non-fiction – except for the computer information. Dummies and Idiots have a firm hold on that area, but the Demystified series seems to be making their play to gain control there.
Can you have a library addiction and not even know it? Yes, you can. The most frequent addition is Series Reading. Once you start you can’t quit. You can’t wait until the next book in the series comes out. You are even tempted to go out and buy it but, use that willpower and wait until your turn comes up on the hold list and you receive your library copy. The rewards will be beneficial, you will have saved money, will not have to store a copy on your ever filling bookshelf, and most of all you will be supporting your local library system.
Dogs have long been called "man’s best friend", but the romanticized picture plays out most often as a boy and his dog. For some reason, more troubles and adventures seem to follow on the heels of young boys and their dogs. The following book series are fun stories about boys and dogs, but don’t worry, girls will find plenty to love about these books as well.
"With this life, I give you the gifts of nobility, certainty, and faith so that you can lead the Clan in the ways of the Warrior Code." Bluestar mews. Stepping back, she and the other cats of Starclan called out, "Firestar! Firestar! Firestar!"
Tea is a beverage that can be enjoyed anytime. During the cold winter months, I drink a lot of hot tea. I love to curl up with a good book and a cup of hot tea. It’s the perfect drink for sitting and watching the snow fall. When the winter flu or cold strikes, tea is the drink for me. There is just something so comforting about the beverage.
We’ve all been there. You are at the library or airport looking for a good book to read. You've checked out all your favorite authors, and they don’t have anything new available. In desperation (they just called your flight or you need to get home to start dinner), you turn to one of the displays and grab a book at random. You begin reading and find that you are really enjoying the story. By the time you reach the last page, you are hooked. You have just found your newest favorite author.
