allsorts Come on in and see my new studio! It's still in a state of disorganized chaos (I will not show you the closet) but you are welcome to take a look around. The first thing you might notice is the floor, which is reclaimed red-heart pine ship-lap siding from Old Texas Wood. It is really rustic and has tons of character. I absolutely love it! Stepping in, you see my Liatorp bookcase, which found a home just inside the doorway. Beyond the bookcase is the alcove that harbors my new Skruvsta chair and Norden table. Onward! I hear you out there, saying less talk, more pictures! Moving on around, we see the sewing corner. On around a bit further, is my grandmother's china cabinet. The odd little space around the corner is still under development. In general, lighting throughout the studio is still an issue, the walls are blank, and there's quite a bit of stuff remaining in the old studio to cart upstairs. Cheers, I'm so glad you stopped by!

Paris Bourke The Chocolate Muffin Tree Made in Me - Blog Increasingly evidence is emerging that tablets are not only harmless but can actually improve children's reading when used in conjunction with print books. Along with the radio interview with The National Literary Trust's Jonathan Douglas above, their recent research has been cited in numerous articles including the recent piece by Graeme Paton for The Telegraph. It is generally accepted that tablets and screen are not harmful to children when, like anything else, used in sensible measures. This generation is the first to be raised with tablets and mobile devices from birth and it is certain that this will have an impact on how and when they experience books and reading. I've always thought that eBooks, or Me Books, provide experiences that compliment, rather than compete, with their print counterparts. As far as the kids are concerned, they don't pay as much attention to formats as we grown ups do.
