Cozy Book Nook


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.

Thank you Motivatingdaily!
