Three Cool Things 11/20/13

I am so in love with this, I'm seriously tempted to buy it for myself for Christmas. First today is a gorgeous re-printing of the whole series of Harry Potter books. The artist, Kazu Kibuishi, perhaps best known for his excellent graphic novels "Amulet", "Flight" and "Copper", was asked by Scholastic (according to this article) to draw new covers for these books, and I think they are stunning. The paperback boxed set is available for purchase through Scholastic for $49 (which I can order for you-- I have an educator's account) or from Amazon for $58.50

What I'm Thankful For

It's the time of year when many of my Facebook friends begin a daily log of the things they are thankful for. I don't have the patience for that, though I do see the value in it. Instead of posting my gratitude on Facebook, I'm going to make a quick list here of my top 10 most grateful things (today's things-- the list changes now and then!) If you don't care, that's cool.
