An Enchantment of Ravens
“I was drawn to this book the moment I saw the cover. And like a lot of beautiful, anticipated reads, I hoarded it away like a book dragon. 2020 might be a terrible, bad, no good year, but it is the year I’ve decided to focus on my TBR shelves by listening to all the books on audio. And An Enchantment of Ravens is a gorgeous book made even more beautiful by the audiobook performance by Julia Whelan! I loved Rogerson’s take of the Fair Folk, the rules of magic, the romance between the Prince of the Autumn Court and the portrait artist Isobel. Isobel is such a great character- clever and resourceful enough to go up against dangerous fae. And Rook? It was love at first transformation from a bird to a hot prince (even when he looks like an old monster). I think I’ve found another favorite author! ”Kate, Fountain Bookstore

Organizing Your Professional Life
“I found a lot to love in this application of Kon Mari method to work. I am finding it especially comforting at this time when I am working mostly from home as many of you are. It is a very slow process as, by nature, I am a slob and my surroundings are usually chaos. Little by little, I feel gently guided by Kondo and Sonenshein to eliminate clutter from my workspace and in my e-space. (Oh, My Enemy Email Inbox!) I am taking it easy on myself and going very, very slowly with this, but I am already seeing some results. It's also shortening some of my meetings and eliminating others altogether. If I can apply some of these methods, anyone can. ”Kelly, Fountain Bookstore
