And Heads Up!

Drum roll, please. We’re excited to announce that the next batch of books we’re adding to the Library will be … Children’s Books! We’re pretty thrilled about the reports we’ll be offering for these, as they will be a great resource for conservative parents. Reports will state if a book had bad words (including “stupid,” “shut up,” etc.), supernatural phenomena (such as ghosts, crystals, the zodiac, etc.), unbiblical worldviews and morals, inappropriate behavior, romance and more!

Hi! I’m Luisa and I’ve always been an avid reader and lover of books. Well… at least that is to say since I was about eight years old when my mom encouraged my sister and I to do a summer reading challenge. After that, I was always getting in trouble for not doing my chores, my school, or staying in the bathroom too long haha, because of a book! Read more about me here
