Read your favourite magazines online

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for reading your favourite magazines online. With the busy hustle and bustle of the holiday season, some of us take a step back from the hottest can’t-put-them-down bestsellers and instead take in convenient little nuggets of information in the form magazine articles and the super pretty pictures that accompany them.  I am a dedicated magazine reader so I definitely try to check in on the collection every month, but the December & January issues, in my opinion, cannot be Continue Reading...

Rave Reviews: November

This month we had another wonderful Rave Reviews program. I was joined by my colleague Jasna Cakmak who brought in some wonderful selections and we enjoyed tea, treats, and great conversation about the books we’re reading and how we pick them. Rave Reviews is one of my favourite programs because it’s such a great way to get talking about books and to share book recommendations. I have a love/hate relationship with book recommendations. For me, a major factor to consider is who’s doing the recommending. I read Continue Reading...
