I have great memories of walking with my cousin after school to the YMCA or to the library. We both remember having to use the old card files and the Dewey Decimal System to locate a book, carrying a pile to the table for research pre-Google, and putting the actually books back where we got them. I really thought I posted this before but I can’t find it. I don’t typically post twice in one day, but after talking with a very helpful, always smiling librarian when I went to pick up my new book this morning, I thought I post it (again). If you’re local you know just the man I am referring to.
So yep, one day late posting and I still have a few pages to go. Not as much reading or photography in February as it was replaced with year-end paperwork. However, I do see light at the end of the tunnel.

What I'm reading February 2019. My favorite book and cover for this month was Rooster Bar by John Grisham, even though I'm not quite sure yet, what the bokeh street lights on the book cover have to do with the story. It was not my favorite book by him but still an enjoyable read. Today, I'll go pick up Jane Harper's new book The Lost Man, and my mom gifted me a signed copy of by Craig C Charles, The North Country Confessional. My mom and his mother are friends and I was intrigued by the cover. I added a little project and will be making a pinboard of books added to my "want to read" list. I tried to read Mark Twain’s Book of Animals, but I just couldn't get into it, same with a Joyce Myers book Beauty For Ashes Details will be on my website a KimberlyMaxwell.com #KiminWNC #KimberlyMaxwell#KimberlyHMaxwell #KiminWNC #coverscatsandclicks #bookcover #bookjacket #bookjacketdesign #bookcoverphotography #books #readmore #readwhatyouown #whatI'mreading @johngrishamauthor

Early December, the weather forecast was calling for Snowmageddon, so I picked up a few books from the library, both about the Appalachian Trail or AT for short.
We got about 11″ and I spent more time on the computer and clearing snow off our new trees but I started Grandma Gatewood’s Walk.
Not much – that’s what I’m reading for October, while the autumn colored outside, is calling my name. Continue reading
I planned on getting loads of work done and my old to new computer switch completed, with no plans to read this month, but then Florence loomed threatening power outages and well, I wanted something to read. I wound up choosing mostly North Carolina authors this month!
