My Thoughts

THE NEUROTIC NOTEBOOK is a fun, pun-y gift book. . The familiar composition style cover immediate draws you to it and gives you the special place where you want to write all the words. Each page has a clever play on words, fonts, or punctuation, and it offers an interesting and entertaining use of language. This notebook is the perfect gift for just the "write" person.

My Thoughts

"I enjoy long slow walks . . .
away from social situations."

A TURTLE'S GUIDE TO INTROVERSION is a great reminder that we can allow space for calmness - we even can embrace it. Each page affirmed the validity of doing things at your own pace.

"Confidence doesn't always roar."
  
I enjoyed the cute pictures and one turtle's thoughts on enjoying their own company.

My Thoughts

Apparently I like comics about couples. HAPPILY EVER AFTER & EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN is a collection of comics of a young couple beginning their life together. 
It includes cute depictions of ordinary life, every day happenings, and the little annoyances that happen between couples who are making their way.

One of my favorite comics is of the couple getting ready for the day and they unintentionally get dressed in very similar clothes. My husband and I did this all of the time, and it's not uncommon for several couples I know. My grandparents did it too! 

I love seeing the humor of it all.
