Quote of the Month
“I’ve always thought that a good book should be either the entry point inward, to learn about yourself, or a door outward, to open you up to new worlds.”
—Taylor Jenkins Reid
Brain Teaser of the Month
Congratulations to Wini Tomczyk, who won an Amazon gift card for sending a “You’re welcome” message in response to last month’s “thank you” from Blydyn Square. Congratulations also go to November’s trivia contest winner, T. F. Gray, who won an Amazon gift card as well. The question was:
Where did November get its name?
The answer: It was named for the ninth (novem) month of the early Roman calendar.
Now answer this:
What unusual holiday is celebrated each year on December 17?
Send us your answer (firstname.lastname@example.org) and you’ll be entered in our prize drawing.
That’s it for this month. See you next time!
