‘Tis the season, if you know what I mean; coughing, sneezing, wheezing and freezing, even with unseasonable 60 degree temps outside; you have an old-fashioned, miserable cold.

Choose A New Fiction Title Behind Door Number One, Door Number Two or Door Number Three!

Would you like the prize behind door number one, door number two or door number three? That is how the game “Let’s Make a Deal” goes.

Moving my daughter into her new home, it became apparent to me that 1.) I am just as much a directional dyslexic indoors as outdoors and 2.) There are too many doors in her house for me to choose the right one.

New Adult Fiction is 'Flying' Off the Shelves at JCPL!

Wandering off to look at furniture while in a big box store with my husband, I chatted on the phone while sampling some of the sofas. Sitting comfortably and thinking this sofa would look nice in my family room, I glanced over to a very comfortable looking recliner that would also fit just right.

Originality: That's What You'll Find in JCPL's New Adult Fiction!

Original: first or earliest; being that from which copies are made. That is the definition of the word “original,” according to the Webster’s Dictionary.

After a morning of grocery shopping and having to choose items to bring home and put away in my own kitchen, I felt a little overwhelmed, seeing all of the choices on the shelves in the market.

Your Friends @ JCPL Invite You to Enjoy These New Reading 'Hacks!'

I love words, but have recently become confused by the use of the word “hack.” Looking it up in Webster’s Dictionary, the definition was just as I expected; ‘short, dry cough;’ ‘to manage successfully,’ ‘computer hacking’ ‘to cut, or chop roughly or with heavy blows.’

Check Out These Truly Satisfying Adult Fiction Titles From JCPL!

Driving home one day, the radio was shouting out my favorite ‘60’s songs. Before I pulled into the driveway, the last song I heard was the Rolling Stones’ ‘I Can’t Get No Satisfaction.’

This April, JCPL 'Showers' Us With New Adult Fiction, and That's No Joke!

April 1st has come and gone, but my grandkids are firm believers in April Fool’s Day jokes and pranks.

My five year old grandson is just getting his feet wet with the idea of April Fool’s Day, and told me that morning that he is going to ‘pwank me.’ It was too early in the morning to try and decipher what that meant, but I asked him to repeat himself.
