My name is Kathy, and I’ve worked for Mid-Continent for 25 years. I can truly say that time flies when you’re having fun! Here are five books I love: two all-time favorites, and three that I’ve read and enjoyed more recently.
Have you ever wondered what you would do if you could go back in time and do a day over again? Sam Kingston has just had a strange day. She got up for school, met her friends for the ride to the campus, collected a lot of roses for Cupid Day, went to an awesome party, and died in a horrible accident on the way home. Sam Kingston is dead- or is she? When she wakes up the next morning, Sam is almost convinced it was a really bad dream. Worse still, Sam realizes that she has rewound the clock, and is starting the same day over again. What if she changed a few things?

October is the time for one of America's 'ultimate' classics. You sports fans know what I mean. It's the fall classic, or better known as the "World Series"! In case you somehow missed it, Ken Burns added a new segment to his outstanding documentary on Baseball. It's called the 10th Inning, and ran on channel 19 recently.
October is Right-Brainers Rule Month. Officially registered by Lee Silber with Chase's Calendar of Events, it is a month long celebration to focus on those of us who are creative and innovative, and manage to survive in a left-brained world.
