It's Going to be a Seuss-tastic Spring

Have we seen the last of the cold weather? Greg seems to think so, as he went to buy his tomato plants today. He is busy cleaning out the garden beds and doing spring things. We were able to sit on the front porch and read this weekend.

At the shop, we've been busy restocking our gift shelves after the holiday season. New journals, pens, and note cards are waiting here for you. And Julia has picked out fun new jigsaw puzzles for your family's spring break at the beach (or in the mountains!).

Our bookclubs meet this week and next. We are reading Junot Díaz in anticipation of his visit in April. Join us if you can—we always look forward to new members.

Do you remember reading Green Eggs and Ham over and over again? How about The Cat in the Hat? Maybe you'll read them to your children or grandchildren tonight. We'd love for you to join us when we host a visit from the official Dr. Seuss Bus on Friday, March 2 (Dr. Seuss' birthday!) in celebration of Read Across America. Come see this special mobile exhibit with your Thing 1 and Thing 2.

I'm reading the Díaz short stories for our evening bookclub. I'm also reading a debut novel set in Rwanda, In The Shadow of 10,000 Hills. Making the morning run ever so slightly easier, I'm listening to The Undertaker's Daughter. The staff have their usual roundup of reviews for you to peruse, as well—it's been a great season for memoirs.

And you? What are you reading?
