Playbill Display.

ILOVEMUSICALS. We’ve been going to them for years, and there’s still so many I’m dying to see. Counting down to Dear Evan Hansen, Anastasia, and Frozen, which we’re going to see in the coming months!

I’m working on doing something fun with my playbills at my house, but in the meantime I decided to do an endcap featuring books about broadway musicals and the books musicals are based on. I’m OBSESSED. And only slightly want to take them all home with me. Alas, so many books so little time. But I will hopefully make it to them eventually. Until then, I will be loving them from afar.

In case you are also a showtune fiend…here are a few of my favorites as of late:

Ex-Wives (Six: The Musical)
Freeze Your Brain (The Heathers)
I Still Believe (Miss Saigon)
Wait For It (Hamilton)
Dancing Through Life (Wicked)
Bad Idea (Waitress)


Winter Blues…Greens.

Merry Christmas, all!

December has been crazy as ever as winter settles in (are the holidays every quiet?). Meanwhile, we’ve got winter displays for days happening! Apparently I’m loving the animals this season, because both of my displays are animal themed. Hibernate with these books are all non-fiction animal stories, and Winter is Bearable with books! are all books with animals in the title. I love them, and the colors turned out so great!

Hope everyone is making it through this winter season. Luckily, we have had very little snow and lots of hot chocolate. Just the way I like my Decembers!

Happy reading all (in case you are like me and trying to binge read enough to meet your reading goals for the year)!


Gobble Up Some Gourmet Reading Display.

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Hope everyone has fun plans…meanwhile our travel plans got discombobulated due to imminent snow storms here in SLC. But, we will still manage to have a great holiday weekend, full of food, board games, and many many movies (if I have anything to say about it!).

My November display includes various cookbooks to help us all make it through this holiday season. Including, baking tips, soups, appetizers, salads, and lots and lots of desserts….not to mention the cooking for beginners (in case you’re like me and can’t even boil water correctly)!

Meanwhile, I’m planning all the December programs and displays, whilst binge reading book clubs (did I mention I’m now running two?), needless to say, the holidays are busier than ever. Hope we all make it!

Crime through Time Display.

It’s that time of year! October is here and who doesn’t love a good, spooky read? Latest endcap display is “Crime through Time”, devoted to those non-fiction crime sprees. Serial killers. Robberies. Assassins. It’s always more eerie when it’s real, isn’t it? (Also, I’m a tad obsessed with this font!)

However, I’m a wimp, so I’m sticking with my Agatha Christie’s this Halloween Season. We are reading “The Devil in the White City” for book club in a couple weeks, so we’ll see how I do!

Happy haunts, all!

Gentle Reads Display!

Because adulting is hard enough and everyone needs a quick easy read now and then. Especially when summer is over, fall is coming, and we have to get back in the groove of everyday life. These books are light summer reads, humorous memoirs, witty self-help, books about books, and everything in between. Also alpacas…because what’s more gentle than a snuggly alpaca!!

Parent’s Back to School Survival Guide!

For those folks who are still battling that school life, or those superstars that work in a school, the first day of school is fast approaching! Are you venturing full-steam ahead? Or running in the other direction?? Either way, it’s coming!

My latest endcap is a Parent’s Back-to-School Survival guide. Books containing anything from Homework Help for Parents to After School Snack How-to’s (not to mention those laughable books that make you feel like maybe you aren’t actually losing your mind).

Wishing everyone a happy school year! Hope the parents and kids alike survive!
