And if that was not enough to tickle your funny bone.. Mrs T has sent this over too.

Women versus Men . . . Priceless!
A group of women were at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with their husbands. They were asked the following questions:

1. “How many of you love your husband?”

All of them raised their hands.

2. “When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?”

Some said today, a few said yesterday, and others couldn’t remember.

A Magnificent Library Parking Garage

So gorgeous! I would love to drive by this every day.

Kristen Twardowski

Outside of the American Midwest, most people would not expect to find exceptional library design in Kansas City, Missouri. If they went to downtown Kansas City, however, those people might be surprised.

I don’t normally consider parking garages to be beautiful, but with the creation of this Community Bookshelf, the folks in Kansas City have made something extraordinary. You can see a few images of it below.

Tackling the TBR [2]: March 2017

Welcome to my second Tackling the TBR post!

From now on I shall try to read one paperback per month, so I included three in this post (the final row of my Tackler shelf).

I am looking forward to reading all other six as well and I have started with Roanoke Girls as I like to get my Blogging for Books novels out of the way first but there are several carry-overs that I want to dig into as well so ahh decisions, decisions!

What do you think of my list? Do you have one? Please post a link!

Note: The covers link to GR book page.

However you put together your TBR for the next month, the goal is to reduce the amount of obligation in reading and increase the fun.

Here’s a look at how the system works:

1. Identify the titles that take top priority in your TBR.
2. Combine them all in your own Tackling the TBR post.
3. Throughout the month pick from that pile as the mood strikes you.
