I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday -Books: The Story Behind and On the Corner of Love and Hate

We may have been given one or more of the books below for free for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

 

Me - Today, I am recommending The Story Behind: The Extraordinary History Behind Ordinary Objects by Emily Prokop. Did you ever wonder where they came up  with the idea for the paper clip, roller skates, or the traffic light? If so, this book is for you. The book is based on the podcast, The Story Behind, and it tells about the origin and history of these and many other objects and types of technology. It also includes fun trivia about these things. If you are a person who likes to know how things came about, you will definitely enjoy this fascinating book.



Mom -Today, I am recommending On the Corner of Love and Hate by Nina Bocci. Emma and Cooper were childhood friends. At one time,she may even have been attracted to him, but it didn't work out and their friendship was never the same. Then, suddenly she finds herself the manager of his campaign for mayor and doing everything she can to keep all the old feelings from coming back. Emma and Cooper are a great couple. Right from the beginning, you can practically feel the sexual tension between them leaping off the pages of the book. You won't be able to wait for them to get together so you'll have to read the book all in one sitting.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.
