Encouraging New Readers!

Tablets, kindles and nooks and even our smart phones are some of the devices we now choose to read books. They are called EZ-readers, but I still love having a real book in my hands. I love the feel, the smell and just the entire experience of sitting down, relaxing with the good book. It […]
