I hope you are all doing well. My kids and I all had the flu this past month. My wife never got sick. Do mothers ever get sick? There must be some biological tool that ensures the well-being of mothers.
People often ask if I ever catch myself not reading, and I must admit that I often let work and life overwhelm me. It is no coincidence that I feel the most stressed at times when I am not putting time aside to read. What’s the antidote? Well, I headed to a Barnes & Noble bookstore near my house and spent about seven hours reading about 75 children’s and young adult books. I also glanced over about 30 new adult titles that I had never seen (I am trying to get into romance novels, as many of you have asked me to start reviewing more romance titles; after all, romance is the most popular genre among book sales in America). Going to the bookstore is like going to the gym, and I felt just as refreshed as after taking a long swim.
Anyhow, enjoy this month’s book selections below. I hope you are all reading some wonderful books. Make sure to tell me all about them. If you're an author or a publisher and would like to send me review copies of your book(s), please send them to the address listed for authors and publishers.
Have a wonderful December, and enjoy your books!
