Despite my love of reading, my memories of [public] high school English are not all that… memorable. We spent a great deal more time talking about what other people had written – and what it “meant” – than we ever did writing… and writing fiction wasn’t even on the schedule unless you had time to fit an extra English class in your schedule.

We recently read a story together, though, that has me missing those evenings, tucked under a cuddly blanket with a book or five, talking about the books, what we liked, what we didn’t, and what our favorite pictures were. (Side note: we actually viewed an ebook version, . . . → Read More: Bower Books – The Person I Marry
Last year, when I was just a reader of reviews, and not yet a Crew member, I’d seen the reviews about the Circle C series from Kregel Publications. They sounded fun, something my daughter would enjoy, th0ugh this was before her horse-crazy phase. The covers really stuck in my mind – in fact, that’s what caught my attention in the first place.
