Monthly Bullet Points.

 

read-369040_960_720The world is on fire, or so it seems. Not a day goes by when all we get from the news is bad news. Are you tired of this circus call an election year? You’re not alone, with that in mind; I’ll stay clear of the bummer, fiery wagon that’s making wheelies around us, by mostly ranting about bookish stuff.  Let’s go…

*Tyler Fugett is a nine year old Tennessee kid with a heart of gold, who took all of his allowance money, and bought books for prisoners saying: “I don’t want people to think bad things while they are in jail, I want people to get out and not do bad things again.” What a great kid, bravo Tyler!

*Staying on the topic of kids, who do great things, let me introduce you to the: orangestreetnews.com a self-published crime newspaper run by nine year old Hilde Lysiak. Who on a Saturday, got a tip from a trusted source about a crime in her neck of the woods, pen and paper on hand, the kid rushed right over to the scene, thus becoming the first person to break the news of a murder in the town of Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. She has since signed with the children’s publishing house Scholastic, to co-write a series of four books base on her investigative adventures. All the best Miss Hilde!

*Ariana Stein and Patty Rodriguez have been friends since they were twelve years old. After becoming moms the duo started a book business partnership that became lil’libros.com Ariana explains, ‘The books have always been about starting the bilingual learning journey with subjects that parents feel a connection with.’ So if you have little tykes head over to their site because as their site says: ‘Being bilingual, it turns out, makes you smarter. It can have a profound effect on your brain, improving cognitive skills not related to language and even shielding against dementia in old age.’

*Of course this can’t be a post by yours truly, without it having a little bite to it. So guess who’s got a book coming out soon? No, not me, (that happened a while back and its call Desperados, go get a copy, I’ll wait). You’re back, that was quick, okay here’s a few hints; he was a mustachioed, sword wielding dictator. Rumor has it that this will be his fourth and last novel. That’s right; Sadam Hussein will be speaking to us from his new cozy home in hell, where I hope he’s having a good time being Satan’s bitch.

Thank you! I’ll be here all week, don’t forget to tip the wait staff!

Later.
