BORED

BORED

“When I get bored, I never get bored. I a m a m a z e d a t t h e w o r l d a r o u n d m e. ”

.

Boredom can be a meditation. Boredom can mean freedom. It’s a space to create, or a moment to stop and sit and imagine. It’s doing nothing, which allows time to do ANYTHING!

I Love To Be Bored is a delightful story about the power of boredom and its ability to open a doorway to all sorts of adventures and daydreams. UK 12.99 / $15.95 ISBN 978-1-78956-202-6

Grandpa used to time everything. Front / Back cover

Samantha Cotterill

on novel spine spine width 5/16" and wider

This Beach Is Loud!

He timed me when I raced to the end of our street and back: 24 seconds. He timed me eating bubble gum ice cream: 1 minute, 58 seconds. Sometimes, I timed Grandpa, too: 18 minutes to drink his coffee. This summer, though, I don’t have Grandpa anymore. All I have is his stopwatch. Maybe there’s a reason he left it behind … Grandpa’s Stopwatch is a touching story about love, loss, and the healing power of time.
