Come back often to see what else we’ve added!
I was inspired to put this site together from all of the extraordinary information that is discussed on our fabulous Facebook page, but often gets lost as time goes by. I hope to be able to place a lot of that information here so it is easily accessible at any moment.

Here’s an idea to make it more enjoyable and authentic.
CREATE A FAMILY BOOKCLUB!
You know, like the one you go to with your friends and drink wine (but, you’d have to eliminate the wine part). 🙂
The fun of adult bookclubs is the camaraderie, the FOOD and the wine, right? So, create that with your own family. Everyone reads (maybe the same book, maybe not– if not, then everyone just gives a synopsis of their book and then the family can ask questions). On the designated day — weekly is helpful for young kids — make a special dinner (or go out), with DESSERT and do it up fancy. Pull out those place mats and cloth napkins. A candle? Enjoy talking about your books with your kids. Here’s the motivation — if you don’t read, you can’t talk, and if you can’t talk, you don’t get DESSERT!!!!!!
