I would have loved this as a kid – heck! I’d love it now! Only I’d need it to be just a little cushier for the ‘more sensitive’ bones…

This is just one of a great collection of reading nooks over at Buzz Feed. Wonderful way to encourage kids to read at home. Wouldn’t it be great to create a few of these nooks in the library?

Motivating Daily

Motivating Daily  is the first tab I see when I log in to my work computer. Most days, these short quotes are just as the blog title claims: motivating, Some days they’re truly inspiring and usually, like today, they say something you might have said, if you could have…like “a hand has come out and taken yours”. Thank you Motivatingdaily!
