Jim Gaffigan
Jim Gaffigan is one of my favorite comics. If you don’t recognize his name you are probably still familiar with his “Hot Pocket” routine. Food and family provide most of the fodder for his humor. Gaffigan consistently makes me laugh and his humor can be enjoyed by the entire family.

Our family loves listening to Encyclopedia Brown audiobooks on car trips. Fortunately, there are lots of Encyclopedia Brown books by David Sobol, but if you do go through them all, there are still other options available at the library. When looking for books like Encyclopedia Brown, you often just find suggestions of book series that are mysteries.

Warriors Series
Warriors Series by Erin Hunter Do you and/or your teen/tween enjoy sci-fi, fiction, animals, and fantasy? Then I have an enjoyable book series suggestion for you! My tween stumbled upon a book in this series, brought it home, and instantly feel in book-love. (I know you guys have been guilty of this!) After researching the series, I became overwhelmed with the dozens of books available within the six sub-series and the stand-alone books.

Hangman's Daughter
I enjoy historical fiction and mysteries. It seems most of the historical fiction I read takes place in Britain. When I saw The Hangman’s Daughter I was intrigued. When I realized it took place in Germany in 1659 right after the Thirty Years’ War, I knew I had to read it. It was an amazing adventure.
