2017: The Year of Non-Fiction

I declare 2017 to be The Year of Non-fiction! What non-fiction books do YOU recommend for 2017? Writers of color, female or transgender, from a country other than the US are all a bonus quality, but ultimately I’m looking for engaging non-fiction on any and every topic. Continue reading

Book review time! 
The Story of Diva and Flea
By Mo Willems + Tony DiTerlizzi
Loved this as a read-aloud for little ones that can sit still for longer picture books, or, as it's a beginning chapter book, great for ages 6-8 who are learning how to read more confidently by themselves.

#poemaday #nationalpoetrymonth #haiku #kerouac #wildlyread #poem #poetry First day of full-time hours in my new job as a bookseller for an independent bookstore, and it's staff pick time! I fell in love with this book years ago, before the movie was even a dream. Though I'm not a fan of the movie tie-in cover, I'll gladly place this book in readers' hands. . . .
