Happy Blogaversary!

Six years ago I started writing about the books I loved to read and haven’t stopped!
It is hard to believe I am still doing it. The joy of reading was passed to me from my mother and I have passed it to my daughters who are now passing it my grandchildren.  It is fun to look back on all that I have read – new authors I found ( some who aren’t new – just new to me ) – finding a book I didn’t think I would really like and falling in love with it  – and always being surprised when an author or publisher contacts me and wants me to read their book.  OH, the joy of reading – I hope to have many more years of this fun!

Thank you for going on this ride with me.


Happy 4th year of blogging!!


I do like to review what I have done this past year at this time.
I also like to look forward to see where I want to go with this blog.

It has been a bumpy year.
We had to move twice and built a house.
So my reading was not as consistent.

At times I wasn’t sure I could keep up with this blog
the way I thought it should be.
My daughters kept encouraging me.

Then I went to BEA and was rejuvenated!
Seeing all the great books coming out, the wonderful bloggers,
and a wonderful author ( Steena Holmes ) made me not to
only keep going, but improve this blog.

Happy Blogaversary!!!!

This is my 3rd Anniversary!!!!


When I started I thought I would try it for a year and see if I still enjoyed it.  It is hard to believe I am still happily reading, reviewing and occasionally sharing about my family.

One of the things I like to do on the anniversary is to reevaluate my blog.  Something that has been on my mind this past year is –

Please give me your opinion.

How long should a review be?  

What needs to be included in the review?

Is rating a book necessary?

These are some of the things that I am reevaluating on my blog.
