Craft Books

If I just had the time I know I’d be able to finish writing my novel... Oh yeah? Prove it. As readers many of us also fall into the category of aspiring writers. But isn’t time always the excuse, the easy way out? I’ve used it myself over and over. Wait until things slow down; you won’t be able to keep me from it, just wait. You’ll see. So here’s your chance; here’s that time that’s eluded you. What’s the excuse now?

Middle Grade Adventure

During this time of crisis, with school shutdowns and a lack of regularly sterilized playgrounds, I know that kids can get to be a handful. In search of solutions, I picked out my absolute favorite Middle Grade stories for children old enough to read chapter books. These books run the gamut from young to tween, so keep your kids in mind as you read. I also find that kids love adventure stories, and have fewer problems with fantastical stories than adults do. To showcase that same spirit, I give you my favorite Middle Grade Adventures.

UNMARRIAGEABLE: PRIDE AND PREJUDICE IN PAKISTAN (Soniah Kamal)

THE UNEXPECTED SPY: FROM THE CIA TO THE FBI (Tracy Walder)

THE OVERSTORY (Richard Powers)

BEAUTIFUL BOARDS: 50 AMAZING SNACK BOARDS FOR ANY OCCASION (Maegan Brown)

THE SPLENDID AND THE VILE: A SAGA OF CHURCHILL, FAMILY, AND DEFIANCE DURING THE BLITZ (Erik Larson)

Connection

As life has slowed in many ways in these past weeks -- despite our having much to contemplate and occupy our minds -- I find it more crucial than ever to use paths of human connection to still our minds and lift our spirits. One of the best ways to do that is through reading. Books connect us to people, places and worlds beyond our own, take us on journeys of the imagination, and give us opportunities to grow even while being still.
