I hope you are all doing well. I am not sure if you are aware of this, but Congress recently voted to halt funding for Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), an organization that has provided millions of students with reading resources. You know that literacy is near and dear to my heart, and I am committed to ensuring that all students have great books available. Please join me in supporting the efforts of RIF during their ThanksGIVING campaign. Just go to www.rifsocal.org, and for a donation as low as $20 you can have a lasting impact on children in need of books. Many of the authors featured in this month’s book picks have given their time and energy to help RIF get books in the hands of students in under-resourced areas.
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 November, and enjoy your books!
