Quiet: the power of introverts... coverTitle to be discussed: Quiet: the power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking, by Susan Cain.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, November 11, 6:30 pm.  Summary: "At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. Although they're often labeled "quiet," it's to introverts like Gandhi, Einstein and Rosa Parks that we owe many of the great contributions to society.

Love Less Ordinary

Halloween is when we like to dress up in silly or scary costumes.  We like to watch scary movies or TV series or maybe take it a step further and go to a local “haunted house" exhibit.  And every year, Hollywood provides us with plenty of movies to scare the daylights out of us.

Book Hunters in Brief #46: Books for People Who Aren't Afraid of Being Scared
