A Long Time Gone

By Karen White

One of my favorite Southern authors spins a tale of three generations of the Walker Family women. The story weaves through prohibition and the Klan, the Sixties, and present day. Although the over 400 page novel has a rather slow start, the momentum picks up as I was drawn into White’s spellbinding world of Southern culture, family, and strong women. Once started, I couldn’t put this down.

Bibliocraft: a modern crafter's guide to using library resources to jump start creative projects

by Jessica Pigza

Bibliocraft is a clever book for the book loving crafter.  Most of the craft ideas appear to be right out Etsy.  If you have easy access to interesting old books (i.e. the Burton Public Library book sale), colorful paper, some cloth and thread, you can make most of the crafts in this book.

The skill level of most of the projects is beginner.  So, it is not intimidating at all.  This book is perfect for the lazy summer day project.  If you love pouring over Etsy, try this book first.  You will save money and be proud of you accomplishments.
