Classics to Share & Giveaway

I love classic music, books, movies, cars, games and pretty much anything that falls under "classic." And I love to share the classics with my children - ages 14 and 11. They might not always love it but I do! Working for the Kenton County Public Library allows me access to thousands of class books, music and movies. But you don't have to work here to have access. A free library card gives you the same opportunities I have. All you have to do is show a current ID or a piece of mail that proves you live in the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area. I love to share my favorite books with the kids. We have all read the Hunger Games trilogy. Reading these books at the same time sparked hours of conversation in my home. We talked about big government, the characters, what we thought would happen next and much more. We anticipated the release of the movie together and couldn't wait to see it as a family. I have shared my love for To Kill a Mockingbird with the children. My dog is even named after that book - Scout Harper. This is definitely my favorite book of all times. It can be a little difficult for a child to read on their own but we were able to read this together and I could answer questions as we went along. I love introducing the kids to music. My son has become a huge Beatles fan. My daughter uses Freegal to download three free songs per week in order to fill her iPod. All she needs is a library card number and an Internet connection. We have enjoyed hundreds of movies that we borrowed from [...]
