When The Men Were Gone is based on a true story of Tylene Wilson who coached football in Texas during World War II. The focus, however, is on her journey and about why she sought to become the coach. It’s also a father-daughter story, which I love because it reminds me of my relationship with my own father, and it’s a love story, which reminds me of my relationship with my husband.

How the Book Publishing Industry is Adapting to Concerns Regarding Paper Production

How the Book Publishing Industry is Adapting to Concerns Regarding Paper Production

Reading can save people from horrible and dark things or just the insanity of reality. The increase in books being manufactured could be a positive and negative thing. More books mean new readers which mean a more relaxed and less technology dependent community. However, many agree that books are the reason why we are losing trees and clean oxygen and causing global climate change through the need for more paper.

Book of Shadows is centered around our sarcastic narrator, Emma McGlinchey, who finds her late great grandmother's book of shadows – a witch's spellbook and journal – while cleaning out her house.  That night, Emma tries a simple candle-lighting spell and, much to her amazement, it actually works.  Soon, she recruits her best friends Lia and Shar – an out lesbian couple – into forming a coven.  Together, the 16-year-olds begin to dabble in magick, but they learn the hard way that spells can have unintended if not entirely disastrous side-effects.  Side-effects they attempt to deal with by casting other spells, but it quickly spirals out of control.
