Venerable Sunyo discusses his favourite stories in the book, sharing anecdotes from his childhood and meditation practice at the Dhammaloka Books Club's 5th session on the 14 May 2022. Venerable shares the attitude that he uses when he meditates, "Just by sitting down and being there, the meditation is already a success and done, and there is nothing further to change or to get somewhere". The mind then gets peaceful right away, as we are opening the door of our heart to whatever is going on in our mind. Also keep an ear out for Venerable's amusing encounter with "MULCH" in the monastery. This book is available from the Dhammaloka Library.

My Book Club series isn't dead! These are the juiciest tidbits from William Zinsser's On Writing Well, a book that's always on my list of recommended books on writing. “Can you recommend a book for…?” “What are you reading right now?” “What are your favorite books?” I get asked those types of questions a lot and, as an avid reader and all-around bibliophile, I'm always happy to oblige. I also like to encourage people to read as much as possible because knowledge benefits you much like compound interest. The more you learn, the more you know; the more you know, the more you can do; the more you can do, the more opportunities you have to succeed. On the flip side, I also believe there's little hope for people who aren't perpetual learners. Life is overwhelmingly complex and chaotic, and it slowly suffocates and devours the lazy and ignorant. So, if you're a bookworm on the lookout for good reads, or if you'd like to get into the habit of reading, this book club for you. The idea here is simple: Every month, I'll share a book that I've particularly liked, why I liked it, and several of my key takeaways from it. I'll also keep things short and sweet so you can quickly decide whether the book is likely to be up your alley or not. Alright, let's get to the takeaways.

All kids are readers. Some just haven't discovered it yet. Courtesy of Orange Coast Magazine Kitty Felde is the host and executive producer of Book Club for Kids. That's the belief of Kitty Felde, former NPR correspondent and current host and executive producer of the podcast “Book Club for Kids.” In May, she joined Kerri Miller for a Friday episode of Big Books and Bold Ideas to talk about how to get kids reading over their summer break. Here are a few of her top tips. If you have a reluctant reader, any book is a good book. Felde recommends parents or caregivers take kids to a library or a bookstore and let them choose any book they show interest in. “Don't censor them,” she cautions. “They are going to go and [choose] the dumbest thing you've ever seen in your entire life. But I don't care! They will be reading words, and that's what you want them to do.” Stop looking down on graphic novels. Felde believes the new crop of graphic novels is some of the most wonderful literature around. They aren't lesser reading experiences. She recommends kids and adults alike check out Jerry Craft's “New Kid” for a story that is both beautiful and compelling. She also points to the many books now being re-released as graphic novels. Rick Riordan's “Percy Jackson” series, the popular books about a modern boy who finds out he is a Greek demigod, is coming out in graphic form. So are the original “Baby-Sitters Club” books. (Attention Millennial parents.) Find a series to keep their interest. “Kids like to spend more time with the characters they've invested in so much emotionally,” advises Felde. “If you can help them find a good series they enjoy, that will keep them reading.” Consider a daily 20-minute quiet time where everyone reads. That includes parents, says Felde. “This is really the secret sauce. Whether kids admit it or not, they do want to emulate the good side of you. And if the good side of you is reading, then it makes reading less onerous.” Read out loud. “We all like to be read to,” Felde says, “that's why we get audio books.” Use their beloved devices in your favor. Artwork by Emma Steinkellner Book Club for Kids is a podcast dedicated to middle graders talking about the books they love. “Kids are going to use screens,” Felde admits. “They just are. But we can use those screens to get them to start enjoying books.” Audio books are one way, she says. But podcasts for kids about books — like Book Club for Kids — are also powerful tools. They let kids hear other kids talk about what they like to read and why. “That's one way to use a device for good,” Felde says. Tap librarians to help kids find a book they connect with. If you have a child that hasn't found a book that's connected with them, “librarians are like gold,” says Felde. “Or the person who works in the children's department at your favorite indie bookstore.” “I've watched them work. They will interview a kid. They will say, ‘Well, what do you like?' ‘Oh, I hate books.' 'That's fine, but what do you like?' ‘Oh, well, I like fishing.' ‘OK, then let's go look at the fishing section.' Or: ‘I only like video games.' ‘Great! Let me show you this fabulous Minecraft series.'” Let the experts find a sneaky way in that might tempt kids to read. Start a book club for kids. Take a tip from social media, and use books as a social tool. Felde says there are great examples of this all over the country, especially in the summer. “If a kid won't read by themselves, get a few of their friends over. Serve some cookies. Set it up like a grown-up book club — without the alcohol — but you start with a book and let the conversation go.“ And again, try not to be judgmental about what they want to read. Don't forget about nonfiction. There are two kids of people in the world,” says Felde, “fiction readers and nonfiction readers.” Don't neglect the Dewey decimal side of the library.

To read or not to read? That is the question. In this Carpool Podcast book recap edition, the gals dive into the pages of their latest book: ‘How to Stop Time' by Matt Haig. The historical fantasy novel follows protagonist Tom Hazard as he suffers from a condition that significantly delays aging. So, while Tom looks like your typical 40-year old man, he is actually 400. Tom, serious question: Can we get your skincare routine? The book is centered around Tom's search for his daughter, Marion, who also suffers from the condition, and must conceal herself from society to survive. Talk about a page turner! Kelly and Lizz break down what they thought of this tale of time hopping, love, and history (with some unexpected drop-ins by historical figures, including William Shakespeare and F. Scott Fitzgerald).  Also, find out which character they thought was “a weenie.” In addition to their personal reviews, they cross-examine the book's success when they read Amazon reader's reviews.   The sister-hosts reveal the next book that they'll be recapping—a New York Times bestseller and soon-to-be movie starring Daisy Edgar-Jones. follow The Carpool Podcast on IG follow Kelly on IG follow Lizz on IG  visit thecarmomofficial.com
