A Penny for Your Thoughts

If you have read an enjoyable or interesting Usborne or Kane Miller chapter book, I’d love to hear about it! What were your favorite parts or scenes? Who were your favorite characters and who were the ones you loved to hate?

Please contact me at I will not post your comments without permission. If you give me the OK to post or share your thoughts, I may use them on my blog or pass them along to others within Usborne.

Have you read an Usborne or Kane Miller book and disliked it? Please feel free to share that as well. I would love to hear how you think it could have been better!

As always, feel free to let me know any ways I can serve you better. I look forward to hearing from you!

Jr High Book Fair

This week I am at a local jr high school putting on a book fair. Several kids didn’t have money to buy books, but greatly enjoyed looking through our selection. I have a period off at the moment. I am hoping that the book fair will sell enough for the librarian will be able to get all the books she wants and take the extra in cash. It’s so awesome to see these students excited about the books. After all, people who enjoy reading are usually more successful in life.
