#BookAdvent Day 3: Books on Tape

Hey y’all! Guess who remembered she had another blog? 🙂 Welcome to my 2021 Book Advent!  I am not sure what I will be doing on this blog going forward after taking almost 2 years off.  I do know I miss celebrating books so we will start there.  The best way I can think to do this is by celebrating the books that have changed my life. Day 3: Books On Tape Not an official title though I am sure there was something called Books on Tape but if you took long road trips in the 80s, ever stopped at a Truck Stop, and managed to find that golden unabridged version (honestly didn’t matter what fiction category it fell in), then you know of which I speak! 33 records were my gateway into audiobooks but Books on Tape were the things that kept my teenage sanity in check on long (and often) road trips with the family.  Audiobooks were becoming a huge thing in the 80s when many families took long road trips either cause they moved for jobs (like us) or because that was the cheapest way to travel.  Truck stops did this wonderful thing of letting you rent […]

Day 2: The Stand by Stephen King Oh this book, I feel so many things about it.  Not all of them good but we are talking about books that changed my life.  I actually read The Stand AFTER watching the mini-series. I freaking loved the mini-series (this is the original not the new one) but I had a couple of characters that I was supposed to like (I guess) that I just did not. So let me tell you a story about a book that both reinforced my feelings about some characters (FRANNIE–I just do not like you) and one that made me feel something for a character that seemed to have one character note in the TV Series (HAROLD–if only you had made different choices and that people had treated you more […]

Hey y’all!

Day 1: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen This book y’all is one that I didn’t particularly like when I was first “forced” to read it. I liked the parts with the sisters (the ups and downs) but Darcy drove me NUTS. It wasn’t until a few years later (and before I saw Colin Firth as Darcy—he is my favorite movie version) that I reread on a whim and fell in love. First let me explain why I sometimes reread books that I might not have enjoyed the first time: I am a MOOD Reader. Seriously, if I am not in the mood even my favorite books will fall flat and make me nuts.  I reread Pride and Prejudice after reading Wishes (which will be featured on another day). I remember thinking, why […]
