A Quote to Begin the Day!

“A book is a garden, an orchard, a storehouse, a party, a company by the way, a counselor, a multitude of counselors.”

How do you view your books?

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
~Edith Sitwell

 

It has been a bitter cold week for much of the United States. I actually dug out my scarves and gloves that I hadn’t seen in close to four years! I saw this quote and it reminded me of the peaceful, snowy nights. For me, snow always meant magic was happening. It was some rare, beautiful and serene. To experience such cold temps this week without any snow, seemed wrong. However the cold gave many a great excuse to stay indoors, snuggled up under a blanket and reading a good book! (As if we ever really need another excuse to read!)

Stay safe and warm during this winter day!

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin the New Year…

“Hope
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”
~Alfred Tennyson

 

Happy New Year everyone! Four years ago today, I packed up my boys and we hit the road to begin our new life in South Carolina. It has been an interesting four years, but I am grateful for all of them. I have high hopes for a very happy 2015 for us all!

Thank you again for all of your continued support.

Cheers to 2015!

You can find this week’s Guess the Character game on the Ariesgrl Book Reviews Twitter page. It was posted yesterday morning, but I have also clicked “Favorite” on each of the descriptions, in order to help you all find them easier. (Yes that sentence was plural, meaning if you missed the first character description, you still should be able to find it.)

Also don’t forget to leave a comment under the A Year in Review #2 post! Author Emily Guido is giving away a free ebook to one lucky commenter! This contest will be open until Friday, June 7th at 11:59 pm EDT. Winner will be chosen using Random.org and will be announced on Saturday, June 8th.

And the Countdown Continues…

Hi Everyone,

Ready for the next bit of info about the Big Giveaway that starts Saturday? A couple days ago, in Let the Countdown Begin, I discussed the Twitter Guess the Character bonus portion of the giveaway. So today, I thought it would only be fair, if I shared the Facebook only bonus portion!

Every Monday, I will post on Facebook a line or stanza from one of my favorite poems growing up. These could be from anything, but I hope you will recognize at least a few right away. After you read the line or stanza, then you will head over to the Rafflecopter (links will be on here and on Facebook) and type in the Title ~OR~ Author of the poem. (I am allowing either or, since there are several poems that have no title.) Please do not answer on Facebook! There will be a separate entry in the Rafflecopter for each of the ten posts, so make sure you click on the corresponding weeks.

Pretty simple, right? My goal is to make this fun and easy for everyone! (And don’t worry there are several other options and bonus entries available. This is just a small portion!)

Only a few more days left before we begin. I know I am dancing right now from all of the anticipation!

Wishing you all a wonderful night!
Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.”

 

~John Lennon

 

Hi Everyone,

I came across this quote from John Lennon and it works perfectly for me today. I just received word from World Book Night that I will be a book giver on April 23, 2013! I am so excited. This will be my first year as a book giver and I am thrilled. This organization’s goal is to unite the world, even for just one night, through books. Imagine what the world would be, if we all just set aside out differences and united through love, acceptance and of course BOOKS!!!

 

Be sure to stop back by here tomorrow. Author, T. C. Harrelson, will be here conducting an interview and he will be giving away a copy of The Beast of Macon Hollow. This was an excellent book and you don’t want to miss out on your chance to win!

 

I am wishing you all a wonderful day!!!

Enjoy!

~Ariesgrl
