Have you ever wanted to visit every single country in the world? Get ready to be inspired by this new book by Albert Podell, then. We recently received a review copy of Around The World in Fifty Years: My Adventure to Every Country on Earth (thank you!), and I was more than happy to dig in.
Oh my, oh my. THIS is a book after my own heart. I'm talking, of course, about An Unexpected Cookbook: The Unofficial Book of Hobbit Cookery, written by Chris-Rachael Oseland.
Music: it can be a way of learning about and understanding a new place; it can be a way of remembering home when away. It may be a source of identity, of connection, of memory, of inspiration. It can be a way to pass on stories and tradition, and a way to help sort out how what's known from other places may fit in a new home and landscape.
You know what I love? Stories of awesome people. They inspire, teach, and lead by example. Such is the case with Chalkboard Heroes, a marvelous new book by Terry Lee Marzell.
