Still Time to Read More Before School Begins!

Are your children getting restless? Soon school will begin in new hybrid forms – online or in classes. Children need to be in school for the socialization but also need to be there safely.

It will certainly be easier on teachers and parents to have children return to school full-time eventually. Hopefully this Pandemic will lose its grip on all of us and once we have a safe and reliable vaccine we will all feel better and confident to return to normal. May God bless all of us during this difficult and trying time.

One way to escape these times is to read. Reading gives us a reprieve and lets us escape in other worlds through books with sci-fi, fantasy, romance, thrillers, mystery, suspense, comedy, short stories, crime, and more. Jemsbooks has all of the above. Happy Reading Everyone!
