I hope you have all gotten back into the swing of school. My kids began playing soccer for the first time, and I find myself consumed with shuttling them to practices and games. I truly believe that youth soccer is part of an evil plot by Capri-Sun and other juice box companies to control the minds of our nation’s youth.
Have you been reading some great books lately? Write me, and tell me about them. A lot of you write and ask me why I do not recommend comic books on this site. While I have not reviewed any comic books, I have included graphic novels before. I HIGHLY encourage you to read as many comic books, magazines and newspapers as you’d like, though, as all will produce much better readers. I’ve actually been reading some comics lately to ease my mind, as I have attempted to re-read The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. As much as I love the movies, the books can be daunting. You have to concentrate all the time!
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 October, and enjoy your books!
