The Indie Bookstore where I work, Content Bookstore in Northfield, Minnesota, has started a Staff Picks Saturday feature on our social media sites. I’ve had four of my favorite books featured thus far and am going to share many of my staff picks here on my blog. First to feature? Well it’s Miss Benson’s Beetle,…

World of Wonders

By Myrna CG Mibus / November 14, 2020

Several months ago, I received an advanced copy of World of Wonders: In Praise of Fireflies, Whale Sharks, and Other Astonishments, a book written by Aimee Nezhukumatathil and published by Milkweed Editions. The book is one of those that is hard categorize because it covers so many topics and fits into several genres. I could…

Books Read in 2019

By Myrna CG Mibus / March 18, 2020

I’ve already read nine books in 2020 (thanks to Coronavirus social distancing measures and a lot of doctor-ordered time spent soaking in the tub to recover from a couple of surgeries – but that’s another story) but before I tell you about those books I want to go back and share with you the books…

Books Read in 2018

By Myrna CG Mibus / January 1, 2019

At the beginning of 2018 I created a visual “bookshelf” in my bullet journal to record the books I read and make some notes about them. Looking back at my year, assuming I actually recorded every book I read, I read 28 books (not counting children’s picture books and the like which I didn’t record).…

Memoir Pick – Educated

By Myrna CG Mibus / December 19, 2018

One of the hottest memoirs of the year at Content Bookstore (and, I suspect, at bookstores all over the country) is Educated by Tara Westover. I read this book before it was published (I got an advance reader copy/ARC) and knew right away based on the amazing story and the quality of the writing that…

Journaling again

By Myrna CG Mibus / August 15, 2017

I recently purchased a soft cover Leuchtturn1917 journal in a lovely blue color. It has numbered pages that are dotted instead of lined (lined and unlined are available but I chose the dotted for the fun of it), lovely thick paper and some nice extras like two ribbon bookmarks, an index page and an elastic band…

Poetry Morning

By Myrna CG Mibus / April 9, 2017

The last several days have been full of many wonderful moments and also way too many tough ones. It’s life. It’s not always easy. I’m feeling overwhelmed. I am feeling like I am failing on several levels – parenting and being a kind spouse high on the list. But I am doing my best to stay task…

Reading Past my Bedtime

By Myrna CG Mibus / March 4, 2017

I was up way past my bedtime last night finishing an advance reader copy of Saints for All Occasions, a novel by J. Courtney Sullivan which will be on sale May 9, 2017. I confess, I stayed up past my bedtime reading this book the night before last, too. And was reading it at breakfast yesterday morning. And…

Making Space

By Myrna CG Mibus / February 7, 2017

As most of you know, 2016 was a tough year for me with my Dad passing away and other things. I needed to concentrate on my family so I put my writing on a back burner. I’m okay with my decision to not write much last year. That said, things have settled down enough now…
