Read with Ariesgrl

Good Morning,

How are you? Are you all as excited about September and the coming Fall, as I am? Last month, I chose Gone with the Wind as the Read with Ariesgrl. I didn’t get the chance to finish, nor did I get as far as I would have liked. So, the good news: This month’s Read with Ariesgrl will be continuing (or starting, if you want to) Gone with the Wind. The goal is to read 2 chapters each night. We can discuss, without spoilers, our thoughts on here each week.

Hope you all have a spectacular September!

Enjoy!

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?

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!

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“Woke up this morning with a terrific urge to lie in bed all day and read.

~Raymond Carver

 

It has been a rough few days in my household, so the desire to stay in bed and read all day is quite strong. Alas, I must go to work. However, if everyone is doing well and staying healthy, on Friday, I will be back with a ton of reviews!!! (Fingers, toes and paws crossed!)

Enjoy!
