Imagination Illustrated: The Jem Henson Journal

Jim Henson is clearly one of the creative/imaginative geniuses of our time. He was taken from our world way too soon. There have been plenty of books which talk of his genius, or his roots, but there have been no books that get to his process, or show exactly what his mind was thinking of and how he translated that to paper–until now. Imagination Illustrated is the perfect book for the creative or Henson fan in your life.

It’s Monday, which means it is time again to hook up with the dedicated readers of the Book Date Blog and start talking about the kinds of things we’re all currently reading.

So far, I’ve finished 2 and almost a 3rd book, and then I have two more earmarked for today. I think the next time I try this will have to be during a weekend where I can be at a hotel or completely away from the world–yeah,

24 in 48 Readathon

One of the themes of my reading life is never actually reading during the hours of a readathon. There’s something that always comes up and ruins the plans I had for my reading goals. NOT this time!!!!
24in48 is actually hosting a readathon on a weekend where I don’t have a lot going on. I think I only have part of a day at work AND a meeting in the afternoon.

Stage Kiss: Mountain Creek Drive #1 by MF Lorson
