Best Books of 2015 ... So Far!

It's hard to believe that we are already halfway through the year!  I've mentioned before about how much I enjoy end-of-the-year lists, but it seems that mid-year lists are just as popular as well now. Below are links to a few lists for your perusal in case you're looking for some more summer reading suggestions:


What's on Your List for 2015?

Preparing a list of new year resolutions is a tradition.  My list generally consists of 4 or 5 things I would like to achieve but I seldom seem to accomplish them.  Maybe that's because I'm not taking the right approach to creating my goals and defining what I need to do to accomplish them.  

So I googled "new year resolutions" to get assistance with my resolutions for 2015.  Here are a few links I located which seemed helpful.  Hope you think they are as well.

Christmas Music

There are many things I love about the Christmas season -- the lights and decorations, the scent of a fresh cut Christmas tree.  The list is endless.  The element that I really love is the music.   To quote Hans Christian Anderson "Where words fail, music speaks."  That is so true.  When I hear Christmas music, it automatically lifts my spirits and brings memories to mind of Christmases from my childhood.  Christmas is the season that some of my favorite carols are sung in church.  Music is the universal language that can transcend so many barriers.  

Blankets and Books

It's been pretty chilly but I'm not complaining.  Christmas in the South is usually hot -- shorts and t-shirts.  So it's great that the temperatures are cool enough that you at least feel like it's Christmas time.  So last evening when I glanced around our den, everyone was under a blanket (I keep my house on the cool side), two with books in hand.  I can't think of a better way to spend an evening than under a warm, cozy blanket reading a book or reading a story to someone you love.  We have lots of great titles at the library that are available for patrons to borrow.
