Welcome to this week’s edition of Friday Book Round Up! There’s been a lot of talk recently about Adult Coloring Books. It’s the fastest-growing trend in books and publishing and I, for one, am thrilled. I’ve been a huge fan of coloring and coloring books since I was a little girl. There’s something therapeutic and creative about coloring, not to mention a huge stress reliever. So, I thought I’d spotlight some fantastic ones I discovered on Amazon this week. The best part: most of them are cheaper than lunch at a fast-food drive-thru.

Inside you’ll find 30 amazing art activities that will take you to a happy place of patterning, shading, and coloring.
