Not only is the year closing in on us, but also the decade. So of course there are best-books-of-the-last-ten-years to be considered. The folks at Literary Hub have declared their top twenty novels (plus a bevy of runner-ups). What novel of the last decade has made its way to the top of your list?

I am sure the GVPL would love to hear from you.

Happy reading!

We need to dream, think, believe and be conscious…

How do we believe in God?

We need to argue with Him.

We need God to be conscious.

We need to live the ‘good life’.

We need to argue to be virtuous.

We need to choose to be good and practice to be our very best.

Then we win contentment and conscious of our life.

We learn to try and live each day like it is our last.

We fill our life fully this way and may even be content upon our own death.

Let’s get into the pre-parade jitters, 4:05 PM. Start at 5, all the best spots are taken, people filling in, floats all lined up, making last minute changes and running for hot cocoa!

The media doesn’t know what to do while awaiting checks and balances with equipment and staff.

Some seats sit vacant awaiting occupancy…

An hour to go.

4:30PM, not a lot of spaces left.

Starting to darken, should be good for pics tonight, 30 minutes to go.

The countdown continues, 4:45 PM, definitely getting dark, city street lights just turned on.

Is it okay to listen to Christmas carols, boring, 15 more minutes.

It’s not too late, 4:51PM, you can still make it down, standing room only!

Here we go!

If you can make it down, it is still going strong… Maybe next year!!

To be kind

Deeply, lovingly…
