Jen’s Best of 2014

It’s that time of year again. The time we all look back over the past year and take a look at our favorite reads. This year is a bit different for me because I started listening to audiobooks. Audiobooks are a very different experience, but an equally valid method of enjoying the written word. I […]

I #amlistening to Audiobooks!

For a couple of years now, my good friends Jennifer (The Book Nympho), Liza (Blogging by Liza), Felicia (The Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog), Marquetta (Love to Read for Fun), and others have been touting audiobooks. And my continual reply was “I don’t do audiobooks.” Let me tell you, it wasn’t for lack of trying! I attempted […]

Saturday Conversations: Treasured Pearls by Nima

Treasured Pearls, Past and Present A short while ago, I endured an hour at the public library with a pack of cub scouts.  At eight and nine years old, their world is electronic.  There is almost no debate between e-books and books of paper and glue, electronics will always win.  It’s their most comfortable medium […]

Saturday Conversations: The Good Bad Guy

Enjoying the dark side Recently, my son had to write a short paper about the book he was reading. He was at a loss for topic ideas, so I tossed a few out. The one he ended up going with gave his opinion on the antagonist of the story. I asked him “Did the book […]
