Howdy Y’all! It is hour 4 for Dewey’s Read-a-Thon and time to have a little fun with your current read! This challenge is fairly simple but I am hoping for some awesome creativity. Also because I am reading for charity each entry will equal a donation worth .50 cents and will go to the Richardson Adult Literacy Center so make my pocket-book HURT! The Challenge Take your current read or the one you just finished. ReTitle it with something clever Post to your blog, twitter, facebook, or goodreads with your snazzy new title! Example: I am reading Warrior Ascended by Addison Fox I would rename this to: Smart Chick Rules the HAWT Warrior FTW (mostly because I don’t have to worry about too much writing on the book page) 🙂 What would yours be? There will be one winner (chosen at random) They will be able to choose a book of their choice from Amazon (US) or Book Depository (Int) up to a $20 value The Challenge starts at 10am CST 4/27/13 The Challenge ends at 2 pm CST 4/27/13 Make sure to leave your link to your renamed book! Thanks for Participating! WINNER; You Book Me All Night Long! Sending […]
Good Morning Y’all (or at least here in Texas)! It is time for Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon to begin and I am chomping at the bit! As always, I am reading for charity. This time it is for the Richardson Adult Literacy Center! How I do this: Every book read is worth $2 donation (I usually get about 5 done) Every comment on an update post, intro post, and mini-challenge post (I am hosting one too) is worth .50 cents Every hour read is worth $1 (last time I got in 16 hours but aiming for 18 this time) This time: Every entry into my mini-challenge post (Hour 4) is worth .50 cents Hopefully I will be donating around $50 to charity 🙂 Feel free to make my pocket book hurt! I will be hosting a mini-challenge for hour 4 so remember to stop back by for a chance to stretch your brain and maybe win a prize! 7am CST: Starting Line First Book Up: Mark of the Sylph by Rosalie Lario (I am at the 50% mark) After that I will probably try a first in series. I could do really well if I find a series that strikes […]

So I am emotionally drained from last week. I am still open to another dog in the house but I am going to give myself to heal from this bout of disappointments. I am also going to take this week off from blogging as I have no set in stone commitments that I need to adhere too. Well I have one commitment which I will keep: there will be a Top Off Tuesday post. I just need some time to emotionally recharge and I think a week of just committing to that will help.
Hi! My name is a Felicia and I have a slight complete addiction to series! Long Series Short Series Trilogies I love to revisit worlds I know and people who I care about. In fact, I have a hard time picking up a book if I know it is a stand alone. I hate to admit that because I know that there so many good reads that are stand alone. Due to the way I read though most books leave me wanting more at the end of the book about the best friend, the sister, the brother, or the guy down the street that had the dog. It is the side characters that always catch my attention because they are always a huge part of why the main couple works, why the cop catches the bad guy, or why the pie shop owner was able to track down the murderer. Without the side characters supporting the main characters the story would never be as rich. However, when side characters meet a reader like me then I want to know their story. It is a never-ending cycle. I have also found this to be true no matter what genre I am […]
