Keep an Eye on Your Garden

The Bizarre and Incredible World of PlantsTake a look at a flower in your garden.  Pretty, right?  Well, take a look at the photography book The Bizarre and Incredible World of Plants by Wolfgang Stuppy, Rob Kesseler, and Madeline Harley.  I kept having to remind myself that I wasn’t reading a science fiction book.  Creepy… yet strangely beautiful.

Galveston – post-Ike

Walking Historic GalvestonTravel books can become outdated pretty quickly.  All it takes is one natural disaster to change the landscape and the accommodations.  If you’re visiting Galveston soon, take a look at a book that’s come out since Hurricane Ike: Walking Historic Galveston: a Guide to its Neighborhoods by Jan Johnson.

 

The Week @ the Katy Library – February 22nd Edition

Have you tried out a storytime lately?  If you’re a baby, a toddler, or a preschooler, there’s a storytime at the Katy Library for YOU!

Or if you’ve done all the reading you want this week, how about trying out knitting at our Mommies Knitting Group on Thursday at 2:00pm.

What if you want to stay with your babysitter and send mom and dad out?  Tell them about our last job search seminar on Tuesday at 10:30am or the free tax help on Tuesday at 12:30pm.

 

Don’t Swallow Your Gum!

Don't Swallow Your Gum!True or False?  The average person swallows eight spiders per year.  I was extremely happy to read reasons why this is an unlikely statement in the new printing of the book Don’t Swallow Your Gum! by Dr. Aaron E. Carroll and Dr. Rachel C. Vreeman.  And, no, gum doesn't stay in your stomach for 7 years if you swallow it.

 

The Week @ the Katy Library – February 15th Edition

From Fired to Hired

Fired to HiredThe job search process over the past year has become agonizing for many people.  Trying to get noticed by prospective employers who want online-only, one-way communication with you can make the toughest person throw their hands in the air.  Last year, Tory Johnson wrote Fired to Hired: Bouncing Back from Job Loss to Get to Work Right Now.  It’s the most practical, information-packed book I’ve seen out on the subject.  It was recently featured on the Dave Ramsey Show.
