According to Brio, many of their works have sold well…except for one.

Everyone enjoys being the best at something, whether it’s singing arias, hitting home runs or spitting watermelon seeds for distance. And even if we’re not personally the best at something, it’s still fun to watch those who are. How else do you explain the popularity of sporting championships, awards shows like the Oscars, and reality show competitions?
On OmniLit and All Romance, we have Best Sellers, Top Rated and Staff Picks to celebrate!

Read an eBook Week began officially on March 4th, and kicks off a celebration of reading in digital format. Whether you have a Kindle, Nook, or Sony reader, or use any of the various reading applications for your tablet, laptop, or other computer, we at AReCafe hope you will join in the appreciation for electronic books and read this week.
With Leap Day coming soon, we have one more day to enjoy a good book in February. Make it a good one! If you’re feeling nostalgic for your first years of reading, you might want to revisit the Berenstain Bears in memory of co-creator Jan Berenstain, who passed away recently at 88. Between the Berenstain Bears, Richard Scarry, and Dr. Suess, I was never far from a book as a child.

Pirates! Grrr! Argh! The term “pirate” conjures a great many images in our modern society. Some are romantic, such as Digimonkey’s personal favorite, Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. You gotta love a man who can melt you with a look. Yowza!
