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: Hitting the Wall

  Time for a break… One of my goals for 2014 is to keep up Saturday Conversations and open the spot up for guest posts, etc. Another one of my goals is to spend less time working on the blog and more time reading. Unfortunately, right now those goals are working against one another, and […]

Saturday Conversations: Books & Movies

  Books vs. Movies… Earlier this week, when I was at the doctor’s office, I was making small talk and mentioned I review books. This got the technician talking about how she loved the Harry Potter series, Twilight series, and The Host by Stephenie Meyer. She specifically mentioned those books because of their corresponding movies. These […]

Saturday Conversations: Vacation Reads

I’m on Vacation! Greetings from sunny Florida! My family and I are visiting my folks who have a home in Florida. The 80* weather and sunshine are a far cry from the endless snowfalls and winter chill from back home. We’ve spent our first few days at the pool, going for walks, and hanging at […]

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 […]

Saturday Conversations: Reading with a Mom’s Perspective

Getting Older With the recent release of the cinematic version of Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, my ten-year old son and I decided to read the classic science fiction book. He read it first, and told me he liked it, but was confused by parts. I just finished reading it now and cannot wait […]

Saturday Conversations: Book Couples

Falling in Love One of the things I love about the online romance community is the never-ending discussion of the BOOK BOYFRIEND. You know, those hot alpha males found in the pages of our beloved books… he is practically ideal in every way. Generally rich or self-made, handsome or flawed but in a sexy way, […]

Saturday Conversations: Surprisingly Good

It was surprisingly good… Earlier this week, I was talking with a coworker about the movie, Avatar. She mentioned how she didn’t care for it; felt it was overdone and overhyped. On the other hand, I actually liked it and thought it was… surprisingly good. Do those words ever slip out of your mouth? Why is […]

Reading Challenges I realize that it’s only September and there are still over three months left in 2013. However, I’ve already been thinking a lot about next year. First… I am already starting to schedule reviews for January 2014… That’s right! My personal review schedule is pretty much set through the end of this year. […]
