5 Quotes Only Book Nerds Will Appreciate

This cute little book Quotes For Writers was gifted to me from a dear friend.  Inside it is full of quotes for writers broken off into different sections.  I absolutely adore quotes for every aspect of life, but this little gem of a book resonates with me since I love to write and read. Inside there is a section just of quotes about books.  I loved them all, but since…

Book Recommendation-Big Magic From Elizabeth Gilbert

I am revisiting this book recommendation I wrote from January 2016 when I about my favorite book from 2015.  It is timely since we are reading it this month in an online book club I am a member of. It is one of the best books I have read, and  in April I will be traveling to southern Illinois to see Elizabeth Gilbert speak for the first time! I am beyond excited to see her…

Why My Book Addiction Will Cause My Sudden Death

I love books I love new books, used books, book recommendations, book clubs, and mostly owning books!  This last fact is the main reason that books could be the death of me. Books stores are an instant magnet to me.  If I walk past one, I HAVE to enter.  Before I know it I have spent hours combing the shelves only to walk out with 5 new books in my bag. Sometimes I think I…

A Parents Guide To Yallfest 2016

I originally wrote this piece in 2015 after attending Yallfest the year before for the first time with my then 16 year old daughter.  I wanted to resurrect it and post it again since it is time for Yallfest for another year. My daughter is now in her first year of college and I have to say this is one of my favorite things we did together in her High School years. If you are…

What I’m Reading Now

What’s better than sitting in a cafe in Paris with a glass of wine in one hand and a book in the other? Nothing!!  Seriously, you need reading material when you are sitting in airports and sitting on a plane for 7 hours. Other than having a couple of books ready to go on my IPad, I picked up Truly Madly Guilty from Liane Moriarty at Costco last week.  Now who…

The Light Of Paris by Eleanor Brown

The Light Of Paris is a page turner I picked up The Light of Paris by Eleanor Brown mainly because of the Paris subject matter.  Five pages in that I was going to have no problem finishing this one. It took me only 3 days to read The Light of Paris by Eleanor Brown.  The author of the bestseller The Weird Sisters wrote this story that explores the complicated relationship between a Mother and Daughter…

Reading Now-The Light Of Paris

I needed a break from all the things I have been reading lately. I’m about “how to’d” out. Although I’ve been enhancing my blogging, Pinterest, Social Media, and Paris travel skills, it is time for some daily fiction. I need to escape away from reality for awhile and have a little fun.  So yesterday I took a much needed trip to the library to search the…

Readers Block-Trying To Find My Reading Groove Again

I’m having a behavioral issue.  I can’t remember the last time that I was stuck and was having a hard time trying to stick with a book.  The last 2 books I have tried to read,  I just could not finish.  Very strange behavior indeed!  Maybe it has something to do with not feeling very settled myself.  Maybe it’s feeling a measure of guilt for reading purely for pleasure…

This little book was recommended to me from a fellow queen, who happens to be a great friend and I am so glad she filled me in!  This book may be pint sized…

Time To Yourself Is A Good Thing

What would you do if you had 2 days to yourself? The  hubby and daughter left early Saturday morning for an overnight trip to the western part of Wisconsin where they have a hunting shack on land they lease from a farmer. What does this mean for me? Time to myself at home with absolutely no plans to go anywhere (on purpose) except to run and buy supplies for my weekend project and take the…
