A Quote to Begin the Day…

“Sleep is good, he said, and books are better.”
                              ~George R. R. Martin

Hello fellow Bookworms,

I think part of the definition of a Book Lover, is one who loses sleep while caught up in the midst of a great book. Tell me in the comments, what the last book was that kept you up late at night!

Happy Wednesday!

Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

In case you didn’t see yesterday’s post, today marks the beginning of a feature here on the site. Each month, I will be picking a book that has been on my dream list for years, and I will read a chapter or two each night. Then, once a week, I will post my thoughts, without spoilers. If you are interested in a title, I invite you to read along with me and we can discuss the book each week.

August’s selection is: Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. There are 63 chapters, which means 2 chapters a night.

A Question or Two for You:

Hi Everyone,

Happy last day of July!!! July was a big month in the world of literature. New surprise releases from Harper Lee and Dr. Seuss. Were you excited about either of these titles? If so, have you read either one yet? I am excited about both releases and I am very anxious to read both stories, one day. Now I know, there has been some controversies and disappointments concerning Go Set a Watchman, but my excitement hasn’t decreased at all. What about you?

Comments have slowed down tremendously here on the site. I have a few fun, interactive items that will be starting tomorrow, August 1st. However, I want to hear from all of you. What do you want to see more of on this site? Leave a comment below, telling me what you would like to see, as a regular feature here. I appreciate your continued support and I will try to incorporate some of your suggestions.

One of the things that will be starting tomorrow, is a Read with Ariesgrl opportunity. Continue reading

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.

~Thomas Mann

 
Hi Everyone!

I think we have all at some point in our lives dealt with “Writer’s Block.” Whether it was a term paper, a proposal or even a novel. We have struggled with the impending deadline that haunts us as we stare at a blank page. This exhausting moment is yet another reason why I admire authors. Somehow they not only power through, they create a magnificent world for us to live in temporarily.

So tell me, have you ever experienced a Writer’s Block? If so, how did you overcome it? What are your favorite methods for preventing this pesky nuisance?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Enjoy!
