Book Room 2023

Here are some books to check out for some deeper inspiration this year.  As always, we try to support our local and independent book stores, so think about heading to your local book shop to purchase.  As you buy a book, you keep a local business on the right track and help a community thrive.  Find your indie bookstore.
