Biography collection will be on display August 26th – September 19th.
Reading a biography is like standing on the shoulders of giants…using the understanding gained by those who have gone before us in order to gain life-lesson insights and make more intelligent progress. Plus we humans have always been insatiably curious.
“When looking for that productive or creative edge it can be helpful to cast your gaze backward. Reading biographies and auto- biographies can be a great way to find the insight you need to generate the motivation you need to complete a project, tweak your own workflow, or develop the habits that will help you do great work.”
The fascinating world of “The Hobbit” is here once again just in time for holiday entertainment. Come in and check out J.J.R Tolkien‘s wonderful works for your reading pleasure. If you are a new fan, you may want to visit the Tolkien Society where you may share your appreciation of his works.
