Literally everyone I tell about The Ranger's Apprentice #books  comes back to me with raving reviews.  It's must read kidlit, for summer or any time!  The audiobook is particularly good.

Paper Towns is one of my favorite John Green novels.  A few things you should know before you see the movie:  1.  Read the book (always)  2.  Paper Towns are false towns that exist only on paper maps to prevent plagerism  3.  The novel explores this essential teenage question: what is the difference between who we are and who we present to the world.?

I'm sure most moms would love a week escape to the beach, but I share three great #mothersdaygiftideas  , including the excellent memoir Glitter and Glue by Kelly Corrigan.  Many poignant thoughts on the complicated job of motherhood.

Sure, you could say "affect is the verb, and effect is the noun", but it's actually not that simple.  The Word Nerd shares some #grammar  tips.

"The first step to getting what you want is having the courage to get rid of what you don't…"
The first step to getting what you want out of life is this: Decide what you want and then go after it.

Mind, body and soul!
