A New Day by Brad Meltzer
"Great book to have read on Sunday! What if one of the days of the week was feeling unappreciated and quit. Would another day be found to fill the void? Or will a new solution be found. A good story filled with humour and great art."
A New Day by Brad Meltzer
"Love!!! Love!!! Love this book! I was fortunate to hear the author Brad Meltzer read his book aloud during The Children’s Literature Breakfast with Anderson’s Bookstore! I cannot wait to read this one to my class!"

Richard Dominguez thank you for the friend request

Ralph Silver Hi Brad!

Here are some of my favorites.
1. The Martian by Andy Weir (great book!)
2. The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth
3. Enemies & Allies by Kevin J. Anderson

(1) is about an astronaut stranded on Mars, and how he survives.
(2) is about a woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease at only thirty-eight years old, and the people around her.
(3) Is about the first meeting of Superman and Batman, set in the 1950s.

I am just starting Artemis, by Andy Weir. This is a new book about settlements on the Moon, and looks fantastic.

Love, Ralph Silver


Janice Happy New Year.
