  Misty at The Book Rat is hosting her yearly Austen in August and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  I’ll be out of town for this event but still plan to read along with The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick.  As an obvious Jane Austen fan this novel has […]

Last week I saw Transformers.  Right when you walked in the theater there was a poster for The Giver. Oh no! It is a Twilight wannabe. Maybe they’re trying to draw teens who didn’t grow up in the 90s. Yeah, that must be it.  But then I saw the trailer… Disappointment began. First off there […]

For Bloggiesta I mainly focused on the appearance of my blog.  I created a page for my archived posts and labels, fiddled with the background and added social icons to match.  I also created title banners for each of my gadgets on my sidebar.  I then realized I didn’t like them.  For some reason they […]

Throughout the past ten years I have jumped from book club to book club trying to find one that suits me, but to no avail.  It was pure accident that I even joined a book club.  I ran into someone I knew and they asked if I (and my mom) would like to join their […]
