I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Video Clip - Book Talk with Candice Millard

I wanted to share this video with you.  This is a full-length segment of CSPAN's Book TV with Candice Millard - author of Destiny of the Republic about President James A. Garfield.  She speaks at the James A. Garfield Historic Site about the book and the man.  I encourage you to watch this segment (it's 54 minutes long) and learn something about this great man.

I had intended to write a post today about his surprise election - however I found this video which does talk about his election in a much more eloquent manner and provides additional information about the man.

It doesn't allow embedding, so here is the link.  Hope you enjoy it!
