I don’t know about you, but this weekend seemed to take its sweet time getting here. Let’s hope now that it’s here, it’ll stay awhile.
Meanwhile, here are a few suggested reads to get your weekend started right.

A lot of them you may know (use more positive words, recall past accomplishments, yada-yada), it was the seventh one I found interesting: Change ‘I’ to ‘You’.

Next up: Looking for a good book? Here’s a list of books recommended by librarians, that were written by librarians. And if you think that sounds boring… well, that just shows how little you know librarians.
Finally, this last article was written by someone with my dream job: Brooke Binkowski, who researches and writes for Snopes.com. Click Here to learn what it’s like.

So go look already! 🙂

Nice illustrations – especially liked the art teacher.
Thanks! That was the one she was most pleased with, too. I’m rather fond of the English teacher’s tortured soul (at least, that’s my take on the shadow). 😌
