Re: Multi Media Books

I rather enjoy the multi-media format. At first, it felt a bit awkward, but once I got into the story, I really liked it. Granted, I've only read one, The Silent History by Eli Horowitz. Through Field Reports and Testimonies, the book tells the story of the Silents, a group of children born without ...

November Prompt-Winter Wonderland

Now that the weather is getting colder and the days shorter, it's the perfect time to snuggle down with a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy a good book or two. But even though you're toasty warm inside, it's hard to ignore the nippy frost beginning to sneak into the weather outside. So rather than forget i...

Perennially speaking, autumns render short days. Moonlight teases the day. Sunbeams scatter with fear. Darkness creeps into day, how coy! Better hurry; time ends soon. Running errands, frantic pace...and go! Beautiful peace comes; moon wins. Silent winds chill the air. Luxurious, steaming cocoa calm...
