Books are where the knowledge is and they have a major role to play in our tech-focused society. Things I have read in books have much more relevance in my life than any TikTok I have watched.

At one time independent bookstores were the only kind of bookstore in existence. Now that reading and buying books online has become the norm, we are missing out on community and experiences.

There is a different kind of bookstore in Sulpher Springs, Texas that has put out a call for help. This store operates on the generosity of authors and the book community.

The Book Worm Box will help you discover great books and give back at the same time. Right now they are in need of autographed books of every genre so they can restock.

The store was founded by New York Times Bestselling author Colleen Hoover. After getting a lot of support publishing her first novel, she wanted to find a way to give back.

Now the charity works hard to help independent authors gain exposure, while donating to various charities. They have the physical store and subscription boxes available online at

Louisiana Vampire Author Anne Rice's New Orleans Mansion is For Sale

Before famed Louisiana author Anne Rice died in December of 2021, she brought us an incredible wealth of literature. Starting in 1976 with her first published book Interview with the Vampire, Rice captured the imagination of fans around the world. In total she penned 36 novels, including four under the nom de plume A.N. Roquelaure, two more under a different pen name (Anne Rampling), one with her son, Christopher Rice, and one non-fiction book. Her success brought her enough money to purchase this historic (and reportedly haunted) mansion in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Now, this magnificent piece of literary history is up for sale - and it's even been reduced. The price has been slashed by $600,000, and now sits just below the $4 million mark.

If you like what you see, and you'd like to live like the Louisiana Vampire Queen Anne Rice did - just visit the realtor's page and put in an offer!
