This quote by Max Ehrmann, has a wonderful message for us to take to heart. There are many times we get overwhelmed with so many activities, demands and requests to do something for others, and yes, daily problems of all kinds.

It’s important to slow down occasionally, take time for yourself, and unwind a bit. We are all individuals, with varied lives to lead wherever we live, and we should honor ourselves, too. We can be of more help to others if we first take care of our own spiritual, mental, and physical health. Take a break from distractions, maybe meditate, relax and breathe in the peace of letting go. We are important, too.

This quote by the artist, Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), is one we can all try to remember. She faced adversity in her life from many health issues, and still managed to find ways to express her beliefs, ideals, and strength.

We all are faced with hardships of one kind or another, some small and others life changing. How we choose to deal with our life struggles, shows our bravery and fortitude.

When we think we just can’t go on enduring a situation, we tend to give up, and to say “I can’t”. But, the first part of that statement is… “I can (‘t)”. If only we can remember that, we’ll surprise our own selves by how strong and resilient we really are.

Welcome to the 2018 edition of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!

All through the month of April, the challenge asks us to blog every day (except Sundays), and to go through the alphabet A to Z, connecting our posts to the letter of each day.

My idea for this time, my 5th to participate, is to showcase a book or two each day, and provide a tiny bit of information about them. These will not be a full book review, but just saying what it is about, and if I liked the book or not.

These books are mostly books that I already have on my shelves, and have read, or are on my to be read stacks. There will be a very few of them that I don’t already own, or have read.

I will also post a quote each day that has something to say about books, or reading.

Hope you enjoy, and maybe see a book or a few that you might want to read, too.

“Gone”, by Michael Grant is a Teen/Young Adult novel. It is the start of a continuing series, with the same characters throughout.

The story starts with a ‘poof’. That is, as the teens are in class, their teacher just disappears. They soon find out that all the adults are just gone. As we meet the characters, woven into a thrilling tale, they try to find out what has happened, and what they will do now.

There are the typical good kids, and bad kids who have confrontations. Then, a few of the teens seem to have developed certain kinds of powers. There are scary parts, and funny parts as well as the continuing mystery of their situation.

And, I sure wanted to find out what happened, so I was hooked on the whole series.

The books are fast paced, and easy to read. I’d definitely recommend them.

“Graves End”, by Elaine Mercado, is her true story of living in a haunted house. This took place in Brooklyn, New York, and they are still living in the house, today.

If you like ghost stories, especially if they are a true account of a paranormal experience, this is a good one.

The author and her family finally had help from parapsychologist, Dr. Hans Holzer, and medium, Marisa Anderson. They eventually found out what was causing all the spooky things that happened to them and the house.

“Found”, by Davy Rothbart, is a weirdly wonderful book. I have two of them.

The author has a penchant for finding all kinds of random things. He actively goes around looking for odd things, like notes, photos, cards, letters, and more. He finds things like this on the sidewalks, alleys, stores, and really everywhere he goes. Then, he created the “Found” magazine, and books, where he shows what he has found, and talks about finding them. Some are very strange, some are sad, and some are really funny.

I love doing this, myself. I find all kinds of things, too, and plan on making a scrapbook of them.

“Father Does Know Best”, by Lauren Chapin, is the memoir of the actress who played Kathy “Kitten” Anderson, on the TV sit-com, “Father Knows Best”. The series ran from 1954 through 1960. I’m pretty sure I watched every episode, as it was one of my favorite shows. It plays occasionally in re-runs.

The happy family portrayed in the TV series, was a far cry from her real life, where she was mentally, emotionally, and sexually abused. She also became a drug user, had failed marriages, and miscarriages. This is her very candid look back at her life and career.

“Evil Angels”, by John Bryson, is the true account of Lindy Chamberlain’s story and trial. She is the woman who proclaimed, “A dingo stole my baby!’

On holiday at a popular camping area in Australia, her tiny baby went missing. She swore a dingo dog came into the camp, and took off with the infant. Instead, however, she was sentenced and put on trial for the crime.

Did a dingo really steal her baby, or did Lindy commit the crime? If you like tense courtroom drama, with actual transcripts of the trial,  this is a good one.

This was made into a movie in 1988, starring Meryl Streep, and Sam Neill. I saw the movie, too, and it is very good.

“Ender’s Game”, by Orson Scott Card, is the beginning of the Sci/Fy series of books that is set in a future world, and it is about to be destroyed. Ender, among other youths, are chosen to train for battle, by becoming proficient at simulated computer games.

It’s a very good series, as you complete reading this first one, you want to continue with the next books, to see what happens.

This was made into a movie in 2013, starring, Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, and Ben Kingsley. I haven’t seen this movie.
