Winner of the Mother’s Day contest

Someone let me know we forgot to post who won our Mother’s Day contest! We actually had two winners. Karly Clinesmith wrote a poem about her mother to win the Memory Keepsake Album, and Donna Norton wrote a wonderful poem about her mother and won a bouquet of fresh flowers. We had 26 entries. We really enjoyed them all.

What we’re reading…

I just finished two books, The Shack by William P. Young. “This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress did for his. It’s that good!” Eugene Peterson. This book was very good and thought provoking. Then on the lighter side I just finished the 4th installment of the Maximum Ride series, The Final Warning by James Patterson. Not as good as the others but still a fun read.


Look on the New Materials page for our new books, we have a couple James Patterson, and Mary Higgins Clark, Carol Higgins Clark, Harlan Coben and more!

What we’re reading…

Well as the school year winds down we are still reading away! I have read Airball: my life in briefs by Lisa Harkrader, which was a funny/good book and I am enjoying that new series, the Meg Langslow Mysteries, Murder with Puffins and Revenge of the Wrought-Iron Flamingos by Donna Andrews. Be sure to remember the Mother’s Day contest!
