"Trauma is trauma, no matter what the experience or to whom. But it's what we do with it afterwards that defines us, challenges us, and either stops us dead in our tracks or propels us to move forward," Amy Queau writes in Rewired, the third book in the Progress Series. I can’t get this quote out of my mind and I think it is a perfect summation of what the Progress Series is about.

So normally this blog is all about books, reading, authors, etc...But this time I will make an exception for a chance to win a Baby Lock Melody Sewing Machine for my mother. Her hobby which she's had for awhile now is quilting and I've been the recipient of several quilts. One of which my dog is extremely attached to - it's pretty hilarious, but he's an old dog and there's nothing wrong with a nice plush quilt for a dog, right?

This isn't a book I would normally pick up - my boyfriend had to read it as an assignment for a college course and I decided to read it as well. That being said, I don't regret reading this book at all. The Pact: Three Young Men Make a Promise and Fulfill a Dream by Drs. Sampson Davis, George Jenkins and Rameck Hunt with Lisa Frazier Page is an inspiring true story of three inner city kids overcoming all odds and becoming doctors.

Are you ready for an action packed young adult novel that will keep you guessing? If so, look no farther than Render by Stephanie Fleshman. Render has everything to keep a reader intrigued - plot twists, mystery, adventure, a love story and well developed characters.
We all have different types of reading-reading for class, fun, work, to a child. Reading is very important to me and I believe the more you read the better your vocabulary, reading comprehension, and maybe even memory will become. That being said, how do we juggle all of the different reading that we have to or want to do. What happens when they want and have to reads coincide with each other? Or what happens when you just can't wait to read that one book that just was released but you are in the middle of a saga? How do you cope?
