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 […]

This week has been very busy for me. Here at my house, things are back in full swing. Both kids are back in school and sports. The Boy also had his big brown belt test in karate a week ago (he’d been training all summer). I went back to work as well. What does all […]

Saturday Conversations: Using the Library

Going to the Library We are big fans of the library in my house. The kids and I visit our local library on average, every other week. There is a wonderful children’s room, full of hundreds of picture books and just as many middle-grade readers. They have a section of chunky board books, a reference […]

Scheduling my TBR list… Earlier this week, I started shifting through review requests for July and August. Yes – that’s how far out I have to plan my schedule! When I go through review requests I do a few things. First, if it’s not in an established series any of the reviewers or I read, […]
