#NFPB2019- September 25, 2019

I’ve been away on a week-long cruise that sailed from Boston, Massachusetts to Halifax, Nova Scotia and back. I’ll work on those blog posts in the next few days as well as a September Update. I highly recommend checking out Cabot Creamery Co-operative and their Reward Volunteers program since they all made this happen.

I did get some reading done.

Martin & Anne, The Kindred Spirits of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Anne FrankMartin & Anne, The Kindred Spirits of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Anne Frank by Nancy Churnin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nancy Churnin shines a light on two amazing people who used their words to help light up the world in times of darkness. And while we may know of their deeds, I really didn’t connect they were born the same year. Readers will see how this duo led similar lives even though they were in different countries.


Of course, I can’t remember which bookstore in Canada I read the following book at. And the picture above is from the Boston Public Library.

I’m excited to announce I’m part of the CYBILS team again this year as a Round 1 panelist for the Elementary/Middle Grade Nonfiction category. You can nominate your favorite books in this and other categories through October 15th!


I loved visiting bookstores- and libraries!- while I was traveling. I can’t wait to share which ones I went to. It’s that time to nominate a bookseller who you think deserves a holiday bonus! The deadline is just a few days away! James Patterson is once again awarding independent booksellers bonuses totaling $250,000. I encourage you to visit your favorite independent bookstore and get to know the staff. And nominate the one that has gone above and beyond your expectation! Deadline is October 12th. For complete rules and the nomination form, click here or the image below. And, why not give them a shout-out in the comments!


Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy Reading!

  1. I need to finish nominating and hope you enjoy your time as a judge. That category will be fascinating, I bet! Thanks for this book, Earl, another new one to me!
