Each season we will suggest a list of books. The Quarterly Book List will include several options from categories like The New, The Read-It-Before-You-Watch-It, The Page-Turner, The Non-Fiction, The Classic, The Current Vibe, and/ or The Series.
We also have some suggestions for the kids in your life. Typically, we pick one Young Adult, one Read Aloud, and several quality picture books. Periodically, we throw in a few other fun picks.
If you just want to read then you are all good to go here!
