This was probably the most epic book related thing I have ever seen.
Have a….fright filled watch.
If it's in the library, I'll find it!
Halloween is less than 30 days away so it is time to bring out your Halloween books.
Reader’s Digest came out with a list of 9 Great Halloween Books for Kids.
So if you have a littler one, go and check out this list because these books are pretty awesome.
And let the Halloween season begin.
Halloween is coming up in just over a month and Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year.
Time to get out the Steven King novels (even though I read them throughout the year) and it is also time to get out the scary movies.
So as I love Halloween, I will be doing mostly Halloween related posts (yes, I know, a shocker…I’m actually going to start posting again).
It’s time to start screaming and jumping at those noises that you hear because Halloween is coming and it’s time to get your fright on
So let the terror begin.
A Word from M.O.M.
The universe feels a little off right now.
As we race towards the holidays which should be a time of peace, reflection and joy we are being bombarded on all sides. There has been unspeakable sadness with a pain that reaches deep. And the stores are full and people shop as if that will make everything right.
Stop and take a moment to find some calm and peace.
We have a wonderful friend, Louis Landon, who is a gifted musician who creates music that reaches your soul.
Take a moment. Get a cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and listen to something that makes the chaos still.
If only for a short while.
Thank you Louis.

Not sure what to give a loved one for Christmas?
Have a look at this awesome flow chart from Book Riot.
And remember, that books are always a great gift to give for Christmas.
Just wanted to wish you a very Happy Valentines Day!
Hope that you have a Valentine :)\
To spread the love I thought I’d share some really cute animals and how they share the love.
Hope you enjoy.
Happy New Year! Did you miss me? I went travelling and there was no Wi-Fi. So, Happy New Year…just a little late.
2012 is going to be an action packed year. There are the USA presidential elections, the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics in London, and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. And what else? What am I forgetting????? Oh, yes! This is the year the Mayan calendar runs out which some take to mean the world will end. Personally I’d bet they just ran out of tablet. Or got bored working it out. So, you know all those books on your “to read” list? Better get going just in case.
Reviews coming up soon…..just dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. The Elephants Tale and Dead Mans Cove by Lauren St. John. Arthur, Cowboys and Aliens, The Nativity Story and the last Harry Potter are on the agenda for the movies. So much to catch up on! Stay tuned.
As we are now full swing in the season of gift giving do you find yourself running around crazily searching for the perfect gift?
Well search no more.
In line with the thinking that hand-made gifts are the best as they are creative, made with love, and so on……
Here is the perfect thing for just about everyone in your life.
How cool to be able to knit some of the wonderful characters of Christmas? Reindeer, Santa and more! They would make the perfect gift to give to that special person.
Of course, you do have to be able to knit…….
So you bought this perfect book for someone, but you have absolutely no idea how to wrap it or to give it to a friend. What do you do? No worry. Just head on over to MotherReader and read her post about what are great books for different ages and great ways to give the books. Click here to view her post about this. It will definitely get you through the holiday season if you have a person who loves books.
