I find that now that I am of a certain age (ahem … mid forties), I am experimenting with serums, night creams and the like and also, in general, trying to take better care of my skin. It’s overwhelming, however, to figure out what the best products are for me. My approach was to analyze all the posts in my new favorite beauty blog, Into the Gloss, and see what products came up over and over and over again. This is that list. Please let me know what products are your favorites and I’ll add to the list.
My Dad Friend from The Sherpa Report introduced me to a Dad Friend of his in our town who has a math online tutoring company called TenMarks. I met with both founders a few weeks later and they were kind enough to give me a detailed demo plus provide me with codes to try it out.
My going-into-fourth-grade middle child has a summer reading assignment. She must read five books and do a book report project by the first day of class. Even though we read year round, she is protesting and slightly stressed about this homework. To select these books, I consulted My Best Book Lists and came up with these five.
In honor of Ramadan, I wanted to offer a book list to help bridge an understanding between Muslins and people of other faiths. It’s actually taken me more than a year to assemble this book list as I am not familiar with this topic. I hope that you will share your favorite books and I will add to this list. I wish you love and peace during this Ramadan celebration!
When I was a student at Harvard, I was unhappily studying as a premed and so tried to avoid studying as much as possible. One reliable method was to go to a library and take a nap. This worked pretty well except sometimes I snored. Finding the right library became a past time my boyfriend and I enjoyed as a procrastination technique. We knew there were a zillion libraries on campus — 90 is what Wikipedia says — and we’d hunt down a different library every day.
I don’t know a lot about Southeast Asian American children’s literature so this was fun list to research and it was fun to hunt down books I had heard about but haven’t read in a while as well as discover a few really great authors that are new to me. I asked a Mom Friend at a birthday party — we were both waiting in the car for 2+ hours while our kids jumped on gigantic trampolines — since she’s East Asian what East Asian KidLit was in her bookshelves. She said there wasn’t a lot available and it’s true.
Encylopedia Mythologica covers Ancient Egyptian gods as well as the more famous Greek and Roman gods. The book also covers Norse, Middle Eastern and Native American gods. Like the other books in the series, the pop ups are magnificent and there are pop up pages-within-pages chock full of interesting stories and factoids.
What I love about this book series (and I think I own them all) is that it entertains at many levels — younger kids will love the pop ups and may only want to read selectively, and older kids can absorb a lot of information by exploring all the smaller pop up pages. This is a great non fiction book for reluctant readers and Middle School kids since 6th grade typically covers Greek Mythology.
I’m been asking for and getting a small pile of books these days and haven’t been posting on them. I was at a loss about how to present them … individual book reviews? But there are lots of bloggers who do that. Sometime in the middle of the night, I got the [random] idea of a short stack of books. Like, it could be any amount from 3 to 10, like a stack of pancakes. I decided to rank the books in the order that we liked them. Let me know what you think.
