Every bookstore has its own unique atmosphere and selection of books. I like Why Not Books? for their cozy, relaxing setting. When I'm in there, I don't feel rushed or overwhelmed.

Event: Colorado Springs Signing at The Bookman

The Old Colorado City area in Colorado Springs is full of interesting shops to visit. One cool place is The Bookman, a used bookstore that reminds me a bit of the shop Arthur visits in The Society's Traitor.

Review: The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis

The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis by Sharon Ledwith My rating: 3 of 5 stars I give three stars to books I enjoyed while reading but think I got everything from them in the first read. A 3-1/2 star rating would be more accurate for me on this book.The Arch of Atlantis is targeted at 12–14 year old readers and follows eighth-grader Amanda Sault and her schoolmates from a disastrous school food fight (and fighting with each other) to an abrupt time-travel mission where they have to ...
