Learn more about "time banking" from Calvert Resource Exchange, a southern county community time bank. Time Banks have been established in 34 countries, with at least 300 Time Banks in 40 US states and in numerous other countries since the 1980's. The "time" one spends providing community services earns "time" that one can spend to receive services. As well as gaining credits, people can gain confidence, increase social contact and skills through giving to others. Communities use time banking as a tool to forge stronger intra-community ties.

The Husband’s Secret Liane Moriarty.Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter containing his deepest, darkest secrets with the potential to destroy the life you built together and the lives of others as well, to be opened after his death. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive. Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all—she’s an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia—or each other—but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s secret.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. In 1865, Charles Lutwidge Dodson composed a fantasy tale for a trio of young sisters. His creative genius and childlike ability to imagine a universe like no other took form in one of the most treasured children’s books of all time. Under the pen-name of Lewis Carroll, Dodson’s tale of an intrepid little girl who discovers a surreal, beautiful, and dangerous land has shared its magic with generations of readers. His Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, and Queen of Hearts have become cultural icons, to say nothing of the heroic young Alice herself.
