Book 7: Eleanor & Park

Last night I finished reading the 7th book towards my Goodreads Reading Challenge of 2014, where my goal is to read 36 books. I really enjoyed Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, it was a compelling story and while I had some things in common with the characters, Eleanor and Park, there were plenty I […]

Bullet point Wednesday

  Dogzilla has been going to doggy day care one day a week for awhile now, we are working on getting her girlish figure back, because I swear all she does is sleep. For the first few weeks she didn’t know what was going on. Then she picked up on what day was her day […]

I wasted 11 days reading Winter’s Tale

After seeing the movie trailers for Winter’s Tale for what seemed like months, but was probably only a few weeks, I decided it seemed like a book I’d be interested in reading. I downloaded the book through iBooks onto my iPad in January. I was stunned to discover it was 768 pages long — which […]

The Tao of Martha book signing

Last Friday I went to my very first author book signing. Ever. Jen Lancaster, you did not disappoint! Jodi, my daughter and I got there early enough to buy our books and snag 16th and 17th place in line for the signing, as well parked our butts in the last available seats. The pre-show consisted […]

It’s a blind date

We went to the library last night and found this in the teen area. I cannot resist a mystery so I quickly called my daughter over and we both immediately said we didn’t know which book to select since #7 was missing. Eventually I decided on book 8, she decided on book 9. The concept […]
