I’ve read most of the following books, there’s only a couple I haven’t read yet but definitely on my to read list. 1. Eat … Continue reading Top 10 Tuesday: Topographic Book Covers

A perfect evening for me would be a nice long walk with my dog then a nice hot shower or even a bath then once I get comfortable on the couch after lighting a candle, I would snuggle down and read … Continue reading Question of the Week #13
Photo by Anastasia Kostyleva on Pexels.com Apparently today is the beginning of banned books week. I always wanted to start a banned book the week of, but I always forget or I never remember when it starts and by the time it gets here, I've done nothing for it at all. I especially forgot this … Continue reading Banned Books Week 2022.
I wouldn't say that I'm the biggest mystery fan. If I went to a bookstore or library, a mystery is probably not the first book that I'm going to pick up and take home with me to read.

While I could see the story the author was trying to write about, it was hard to feel connected to it because the characters had very little … Continue reading The Last Bad Book
I started Bone Deep: Untangling the Betsy Faria Case by Charles Bosworth Jr. & Joel J. Schwartz. Over the past winter I listened to the podcast The Thing About Pam narrated by Keith Morrison from Dateline. I love listening to him tell stories; he could make the grocery list sound sinister. So when I saw … Continue reading Currently Reading.
TV We didn't really watch a lot of television shows on tv while it was airing. We watched a little bit of America's Got Talent but we didn't like any of the talents that made it to the finals.
