It's important to take some time each day to slow down, breathe, and just relax. Sit down somewhere quiet. Take a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate with you into your little bubble of me time. Read a book. Ok, not a whole book. Let's be honest, if you have enough spare time to read an entire book in one sitting, you probably don't need to decompress.
Did you know we have audiobooks? In both CD and Cassette Tape formats. Westerns, mysteries, romance, even non-fiction like How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie.
What was your favorite book as a kid? What bedtime story did your parents dread because they've read that book so many times they just want to set it on fire and dance with glee? Pokey Little Puppy? The Monster at the End of the Book? Where the Wild Things Are?
If you were stuck in a blizzard, assuming you're warm and safe - just stuck, what book would you want with you? When the ipad and cell phone batteries give out, a book will still work at factory specs. What book, though? A Mystery, a Romance, a Classic? Would you want an old favorite, or that book you always meant to get around to reading?
There is a mystery for everyone. Historical mysteries, sci-fi mysteries, legal mysteries, medical mysteries, even cooking related mysteries. . . with recipes! If you don't think you like mysteries, you haven't read the right one.
Remember those great Illustrated Classics books when you were a kid? The Three Musketeers, Treasure Island, Moby Dick? They're all here! Come on in and see what else we have in store for you from our ever-evolving collection of books of all kinds.
