Attention Kindle Owners!

Finally, Amazon has gotten with the program and is allowing libraries to loan out ebooks for the Kindle! If your public library subscribes to OverDrive, and you own a Kindle, you're in luck -- you can borrow ebooks for free!

I've been using my library's account to check out books for my Kobo for a while now. Usually I have to place a "hold" and wait a little while, but you can't beat free.

For more info, see School Library Journal's article here.

A Beautiful Perspective

Even if you don't use cloth diapers (and I know the majority of us don't; I'm not here to impart any mom guilt -- I've got some Huggies in Evan's closet!), if you are a parent, I think this post will encourage you. It was shared over at The Cloth Diaper Whisperer.

I have been reading a lot lately, just not posting about it! I recently finished Angie Smith's I Will Carry You, which I pretty much cried through, but found to be an honest and encouraging look at tragedy and grief from a Christian perspective. It caught my eye at Borders (Borders, I shall miss you) and finally made it from my "to-read" list to my "read" list!

Speaking of my to-read list, if you're a reader and you're not on goodreads yet, what are you waiting for? It's a great way to keep track of what you've read and what you want to read. So sign up and be my friend!
