I was born and raised in New York. I still live in New York but kind of sick of the city and one day I wish to move to the UK.I have a Masters degree in Library Science and I currently work in a special collections library.
I loved books ever since I was a little girl. Through the hard times in my life, my love for books has always gotten me through. Just entering another world different from my own intrigues me.
As long as I am entering in another universe, I like to create my own as well. I love to write and hopefully I will be able to complete a novel.
Besides the scary costumes and huge amounts of candy, Halloween is not complete without curling up and reading a spooky story. And you can’t go wrong with these selections, especially since they are free. Enjoy a good scare with these haunting classics:

Most of us, including myself, have been remiss in our education of Indigenous People’s history. But now is our chance to learn about a past that was conveniently left out of our school textbooks. If you are interested to learn more about Indigenous People (and not just in the United States, but all across the world), here are some great book selections that will give you a great start:
