I always appreciate feedback, especially if it’s positive. This was a “not recommended review” (thereby hidden) from Yelp:
“i try not to focus a review on a staff member but EARL IS A GEM, he has read all the books and gets you excited about asking for his recommendation! also the shop its self sells miniatures and cuteness overload, people of all ages should go here! much more relaxing then the other giant book stores and library’s in the area.”
I just accidentally messed up my blog thinking I knew what I was doing connecting it with my new domain name. Headache inducing!
I think the home page isn’t accessible at this point but individual posts are still up and running!

This just wasn’t for me, I guess. I liked the illustrations fine. The story was kind of cute.
I don’t know how many books about crosswords I’ve read over the years but it’s probably more than anyone has to read. New information is rare but I guess it’s in the presentation. I can’t get enough though especially with the crossword’s centennial having been celebrated earlier this year.
I like Loren Long’s Otis series because of it feel so American to me. Does that make sense? It has tradition and values. This one, though, fell flat to me. At least, the way they handled the scarecrow’s expression at the end was interesting. The illustrations remain pleasant to look at!
Another story about hats and friendship. The illustrations are very striking in this one. Reminds me of The Lion and the Bird by Marianne Dubuc but I actually like this one more!
Anyone who knows me knows I love libraries.
I can appreciate what is being done with this book but I wish it went deeper. Plus, I wish it had mentioned Friends of the Library or Friends Foundations.
The essays were wonderfully written though!
*= It was OK
**= Liked it
****= Highly Recommended
I am reading Junot Diaz’s This is How You Lose Her and am currently not liking it. At least, it’s short!
I also picked up a book of Hafiz’s poetry. Plus, I have a book for #NFPB2014.
I’ve also checked out books for a reading theme I want to do either in September or October.
Have a great reading week!
