Yesterday I had a customer asking to place a request on the latest book of her favorite author. It was so new that we did not have an order record for a request. Then I thought of Authors Alerts. Here you can sign up, choose your favorite authors and receive emails whenever Harris County gets a new title by your selected authors. You will find the link under the tab, Books & Media. Try it out.
In celebration of National Poetry Month we have enjoyed a display of vintage fountain pens from the collection of local enthusiast Craig Sirles. What a more beautiful way to "pen" a poem than with one of these pieces of art!

I’ve been thinking lately about the subject of creativity, and that has led me to remember one of my favorite books: The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron. A point Cameron’s book makes is that we all have some degree of creativity within us and it is worthwhile to overcome our fear of using it. That aspect of her book intrigues me.
