I’ve wanted to be in business for myself for a few years now, however, every idea that I imagined didn’t seem like the right one. But in the past few months landing the job of reviewer, first of Tech and then books, on this website has fulfilled what I have been looking for. When I decided …
In the last few posts I have read and reviewed: the plight of women in Ascent of Women by Sally Armstrong, I tried to organize the chaos that is my desk with The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, and I followed a refugee from Vietnam to Canada in the fiction work Ru by …
As I stated in my first blog post, I have a messy desk. But the mess doesn’t stop there. I am a busy mom of three and I want to learn to clean my house more efficiently. I know where everything is… but I need some help. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, is …
When I heard that the winner of the 2015 Canada Reads contest was Ru: A Novel by Kim Thuy, I was a little shocked. The buzz around the literary world was that Thomas King’s The Inconvenient Indian was being touted as the strongest book. It is a strong book, and I encourage people to read …
Growing up I loved to color. We had video games and a television but I grew up in a time when only about an hour of screen time was the average for the day. No Internet, iPads or cell phones. My younger cousins call it the dark ages. It was one hobby that I had that …
I want you to think about a time when you had a really bad headache. A headache so bad that you couldn’t get out of bed and you truly felt that your head was going to explode. Now take that headache and put the pressure on the inside of your skull, in the lining of …

I thought that this was going to be another book like What If? by Randall Munroe. It was and it wasn’t. The beauty of science, one where an …
I have read many business books in my years studying Advertising and Communications when I was in college. They were all the same. If you have trouble falling asleep, grab a business book. They knock you right out. Why is that? Shouldn’t people who lead these dynamic companies be dynamic themselves? Shouldn’t they inspire and energize …
I’m wrapping up the teen challenge with a blog post.  I have to say it was a challenge. I normally read two to three books per week for reviewing alone. With work – I work a full time job outside of the house, and the necessities of life, eating and sleeping to name a few, …
With this last review the Teen Book Challenge is over. I’m not going to lie, at first it was easy but then life started to get in the way (work, eating, sleeping and a really bad cold) and the last two days were tough. I’m glad that I did it. Not going to do it …
