snooze

With normal routines and work schedules interrupted, it’s not unusual these days for most people to find their sleep quality less than desired.

Snooze Chews (www.consultbeaute.com) is a non-addictive sleep aid that can be consumed prior to bedtime for a more quality, restful sleep experience. In addition to melatonin, these delicious honey-lemon flavored chews contain L-tryptophan and magnesium. These ingredients work in concert to help you fall asleep faster, sleep more deeply, and awaken feeling like you’ve gotten a good night’s sleep in order to face your day. They are individually wrapped for your convenience so you can keep them handy on your nightstand.

watergate

History tends to repeat itself and this is never more evident than in Jill Wine-Banks’ memoir about the whole Watergate affair during the Nixon administration, recounted in her fascinating book “The Watergate Girl” (www.jillwinebanks.com).

Wine-Banks had a unique prospective of the trial of Nixon’s ambitious underlings as she was the sole female on the prosecution team.  Her story reads like a chilling murder mystery, with truth, justice and the American way being the victims of a dishonest and narcissistic president and the people he surrounded himself with, all for political gain. Sound familiar?  “The Watergate Girl” is a book you will find hard to put down!

Here’s a free activity you can do from the comfort of your own home to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day!

Director and activist Michael Moore has decided to offer a free showing of his new fim, “Planet of the Humans” directly via his website at http://www.planetofthehumans.com rather than waiting for a money-making theatrical release. This documentary, directed by Jeff Gibbs, will give you plenty to think about and discuss with family and friends. You may not always like or agree with Moore or his message, but at least he’s putting it out there.

powells

Powells Books in Oregon (www.powells.com) is just one example of independent booksellers throughout the country that deserve your business during these challenging times.  Bookends Bookstore in New Jersey (www.book-ends.com) is another, well-known for their large inventory of autographed volumes. James Cummins Bookseller in New York is another (www.jamescumminsbookseller.com), a treasure trove for antique and vintage book collectors.

The best news is that most independent booksellers are still open for business during this stay-at-home period, willing to ship books directly to your door. Books can be great friends, allowing us to escape for a while if we’re living with other people, and giving us comfort and companionship if we’re cocooning alone. So do some online browsing today and support one of these businesses!

Reading Kenny Rogers’ obituary recently in the New York Times, we were surprised to discover he was quite the accomplished photographer, a role he played on one episode of the popular Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman television series. Upon further research, we came upon his book, Kenny Rogers’ America at one of our favorite booksellers at Biblio.com.

During this time of national crisis, discover the pleasure of seeing the images of America that Kenny Rogers captured in this amazing book. Like us, you will no doubt be inspired by the beauty, solemnity and grace that his photography displays. This book takes you away to a pre-pandemic America that is both fascinating and alluring.
