Featured Blog: It’s the Little Things

My next featured blogger as part  of my 3rd Blogoversary Celebration isn’t a book blog, but it is such a neat, inspiring blog, and a good friend of mine, so I really wanted to share it.  My friend Amanda did such an awesome job with the little write up I asked her for, I almost […]

Deadly by Julie Chibbaro

I first heard about this book in the Shelf Awareness email newsletter about a giveaway of a signed copy by the author. So I emailed and entered. I hadn’t heard any news of when they were drawing a winner, and I had to turn my Nook back into the store on Saturday, so when I […]

Welcome 2011!

I see everyone else seems to be doing a New Year’s resolution/goals blog, so I’ll do one as well. I usually only do either book reviews or waiting on Wednesday blogs, but this will be out of the ordinary. First, I want to set some goals for the blog itself. I hope to make it […]

Ready for fall tv to start

While I’m glad there isn’t much tv going on, because I don’t seem to have much time to watch it, I’m also ready for all my shows to be back. I got five miles in today. Worried if I would because the clouds just looked really scary all night, but we didn’t get anything. Then […]

First REAL day of school

The morning started out pretty good. I actually felt after the first 2 classes that I could maybe do this for another year. Then, my 5th hour started. A class of 20 boys and 9 girls. That should tell you right there what the issue was. Boys with constant, stupid questions, just to be smart-alecs. […]
