Right now I am reading a book I bought at the last library book sale. Books there are in great condition and very reasonably priced ( $1 paperbacks, $2 hardcover). But who ever had the book before me was a page bender. Do you bend the corner of the page to mark your place or do you use a bookmark? I used to bend the pages when I was younger, but now I wouldn't dream of it.

I joined in December of 2014, and use it only to keep track of what I am reading, though I have reviewed a couple of books. I like taking the challenge to read x number of books in a year. I started on there because of this team.

Peace and Many Blessings!

That's great! I just joined Good Reads a couple of months ago. Really haven't reviewed anything. Just using it to keep track of how many books I read. I really want to make it 24 books a year.

Just got an email notifying me that I have entered the ranks of Goodreads' Top 1% of Reviewers! Of course considering how many members Goodreads has that makes me part of the ranks of about a few hundred thousand or so.

Yes, the right to read aloud needs an amendment to include "as long as it does not disturb other readers."

Leona, glad to hear you like Of Moths and Butterflies. I have it on my kindle and may start that one next.

Happy Easter everyone! Hope yours is blessed. emoticon

Denying one's Right Not To Finish and Right to Skip would also constitute Cruel and Unusual Punishment. I can do without the Right Not To Read and The Right to Read Aloud, especially if that right is being practiced by someone else while I am trying to read my own thing!

I like the one "not to finish". I just skimmed through a book because of too much in the bedroom and then began Of Moths and Butterflies by V.R. Christensen that was the same time era and so well done.

I hope to get on here more.

I like the same two rights as Frabbit, plus the right to skip over repetitious sex scenes.

Like the reader's bill of rights especially the right to escapism and the right not to finish a book. Took me a long time to get to that point.

Glad to know I am not the only one who goes through non-reading spells. It happens, sometimes the real world just takes precedence. I don't let it worry me to much. Sooner or later I will get drawn back into an excellent story.

Sometimes I get tired of reading. Which makes me think I'm reading too much.

I found an old cookbook somewhere (yard sale?). I love it. Very basic, home cooking. Fanny Mae? It's got really weird stuff in it, too. Like how to cook pigs knuckles and such.

Wow, it is usually in the summer time when I lose interest in reading, but now, I have lost interest in reading in February. I just wanted to stop by and say Hi, because I'm interested in reading cookbooks and finding some old recipes to use.

Best to you all, for soon I hope to be back reading.

Well I work all day so most nights it's just a chapter or two. The sign of a really good book is when I can read more than that no matter what the day was like.

Having no kids and grandkids, I took the initiative to ask the adult relatives that I usually buy for if it would be okay if we skip the gifts and just enjoy the peace and beauty and love of Christmas, and the answer was "YES!" so my shopping became way less time-consuming and stressful this year. I still give out anonymous gift cards ahead of Christmas to people I know are having financial troubles so they can get gifts for their kids, and also send packages to troops serving overseas, much more fun than buying gifts for people who don't need anything when I'm not even sure the gift is something they want or can use.

Thanks Elisadenk - I'm just glad I'm mostly done with Christmas shopping. With all of this going on I would not be in the mood to do it now.

On a happier note my best friend's son is getting married on the 22nd! Gotta take bad with the good.

Sounds lovely Elisadenk - I love when communities do something together like that.

Having trouble hanging on to my Christmas spirit. Family and friends are getting such bad news. My boyfriends stepmother is suffering from Alzheimer's and will most likely need to be put into a care facility in the coming year. Her daughter has been receiving chemo for liver cancer and found out that the tumor has grown. She is starting a very aggressive treatment this week. Then to cap it all off we heard a family friend's son had a massive heart attack and died yesterday. Please pray for these people and I will pray that all my SparkFriends are safe and sound through this holiday season.

I googled up Glendale Glitters. Yeouser!!

In the next town over, there's a street they 'decorate'. Each house can be done up differently. They block of the street for pedestrians only. Totally cool!

We went to Glendale Glitters yesterday. For those of you not from the Phoenix area Old Towne Glendale decorates the square with millions of lights and trees and decorations. They have an amphitheater and had local dance schools performing and in another section a live band and vendors everywhere selling all kinds of Christmas stuff, and had some rides set up for the kids. The best part is there no admission to get in. You have to pay for the rides and food, but if you just want to walk around and watch the entertainment(and people watch) it is free.

Glad to see everybody survived Thanksgiving pretty much unscathed, except for Nola, so please get well soon to enjoy the Christmas festivities and finish that booktree so you can post a picture as your gift to us. What a gorgeous Avatar!
Such a great picture, Kay, that is one that I would run off and frame a bunch of copies and give to everybody as a stocking-stuffer.
Wow, Noreen, just keep on doin' what you're doin'! Christmas can be so stressful for working folks, so please take good care of yourself.
Wishing everybody a great pre-Christmas season, and please remember to enjoy and not overdo! Make sure to allow time to smell the bayberry and open up some great Christmas story books.
And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One, Gentle Readers!

Glad you are feeling better Grndmom43! Will be interested in hearing how you decided to decorate your book tree- or maybe even post a picture of it.

Have a great Friday all. emoticon

I am finally well enough from my cold to venture out of my apartment. I took a short walk to the store up the street and inhaled some fresh air. I cleaned my living room and vacuumed this afternoon and my laundry is separated for tomorrow. I won a box set of ebooks and a swag pack that I will receive from an author this month. I have lots reading to do!
I am making one of the book Christmas trees and am almost finished but not sure how it should be decorated. emoticon

Great picture Simple Life - looks like a good time was had by all.

I have had two very hectic days at work. I am hoping for a calmer day tomorrow.

Happy December 1st everyone!

We celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday with my brothers, SIL and mother. The food was good and I think everyone had a nice time.


I'm in the plaid shirt with my husband behind me.

Had a great Thanksgiving. Everything turned out good and somehow I lost half a pound! emoticon I didn't overdo as much as I once would have - but I did have some of everything including wine and pie. Will have to thank my gym for being open on the holiday. I think the 45 minutes on the stair stepper really help.

Happy Tuesday!
I went to aerobics class this morning and I'm going to ballroom dancing class this afternoon. My legs are already tired. We have a new dance instructor today. It will be interesting to see how the class is run with the new instructor. I'm looking forward to that.
