Editor’s note: The following article is a synopsis written by staff members and volunteers of the Cary Public Library highlighting one of the suggested reading books, as determined by their staff.
    Ever surprise yourself by taking a short-cut, then finding the longer, harder way was probably the best?
    Happened to me last week! A new series of easy readers for the Children’s Library features re-tellings of the old school classics. Called “Real Reads,” various authors condense classical literature into today’s easier language. I thought it would be neat to read these highly-acclaimed works and know what they were all about in a lazy way.

    HOULTON — Most people associate quilt squares with lovely patterns that are sewn together to make a warm, colorful cover for a bed or rack.
    But many may not know quilt squares can also be found adorning barns and buildings on a much larger scale.
