Blog Hopping Today I wanted to chat about reading blogs and blog hopping. I have been reading various author and review blogs for four years now.  In the beginning, I added new blogs to my feed-reader almost every week. But over the past year, my blog hopping and finding new-to-me blogs has all but diminished. […]

As traditional, I am going to take a few moments to give thanks.I am thankful for my family, especially my babies (who have gotten so big!).

Sorry for the Interruption…

That is IF one occurs…  I’ve been messing around with FeedBurner trying to figure out how to best reach readers. I have made a couple changes and I don’t know if it will impact the RSS feed or the subscribe by email feed. BUT if you don’t see anything new for more than 3 days, […]

Where will you be in 2013?

I started looking at all of the “romance conferences” that will be offered in 2013. The good news: there are lots of choices and opportunities. The bad news: there are lots of choices and opportunities.  For me, the date of the conference is the most critical aspect when selecting a conference to attend. I have […]

What Makes a Good Gateway Book?

In case you haven’t heard any of the recent online and on-the-air discussions surrounding Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James, this isn’t one of them! I will tell you, I have not read the book and honestly, I don’t intend to. This isn’t a commentary on Fifty Shades nor a discussion on whether or […]

Reading & Blogging Goals for 2012

The NEW YEAR has arrived and everything starts anew. All the book lists reset to zero and there are so many possibilities.

Sunday Snippets

Hi all! Happy NEW YEAR! I hope you are enjoying some relaxation time and possibly watching some football. Sunday Snippets is taking a New Year hiatus. I’m not sure if it will only be for this week or if it will be longer. It’s a time consuming post to run each week, and I need […]

Year in Review – 2011

Well, another year has come and gone. I am happy to report that I have conquered another year blogging and reviewing so many wonderful books. Once again, my total number of books read has declined from 2010 to 2011, I’m guessing it will be roughly 20 fewer books this year than last. However, my total […]

G & U’s Top Ten Series to Reread

We the addicted to reading, Gikany and Una, have decided to come clean.  Everyone has those guilty pleasures.  Considering, though, the depth of our addiction, we do not just reread a book…Gikany and Una have a habit of rereading series.  *cough*  This has no bearing on us being late with our blog posts to Twimom.  […]
