What I’m Reading

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

Imagine you are in a library…The Midnight Library!

The books in this library help Nora to envision her life as various lives if she had done things differently in her life.

Each book contains a different choices, different possibilities, different life.

Is there a perfect life? What is the best way to live? This book makes you think…and appreciate!

This book is AMAZING!

We tried to take a book photo with Bentley…and he was not having it! (perhaps he is not a reader?)

Here are the best ones…with the best photo being the book itself!

Happy Reading!
