More Christmas Shopping

December 2nd, 2009 · 2 Comments

On Monday I ordered a book from the Canadian version of Amazon.  It arrived yesterday.   The VERY.NEXT.DAY. Damn!  If that’s not good customer service, I don’t know what is. I don’t know where I saw it, but I read a review on someone’s blog.  I’m nothing if not a lemming, so I ordered one. It […]

I ordered an autographed copy of The Pioneer Woman’s Cookbook for my sister for Christmas. I had to order one for me too. And I got one because someone else might need it as a gift. I’ve only had a moment to look through mine.  Let me say.  It is beautifully done.  The photos are […]

I volunteered to review it.   We have the original, The Daring Book for Girls.  The BoyChild has The Dangerous Book for Boys which he reads religiously and carries around with his other treasurers. When we got the original Daring Book […]

The Dangerous Days of Daniel X

September 11th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I’ve never been a James Patterson fan. He is a good writer but I usually have other books that I would rather read. That may have changed with his new novel for kids, “Daniel”, written by Patterson and Michael Ledwidge. Patterson, the father of a ten year old son, wrote a series called Maximum Ride […]

I covet a Kindle

June 30th, 2008 · 6 Comments

There is no way around it. I want an Amazon Kindle. I want to be able to carry around over 200 books in my purse. I want to pull it out and look at it while I’m waiting for a docket to start or sitting in the waiting room waiting for my kids to have […]

NaBloPoMo Day 18

November 18th, 2007 · No Comments

Because I’m desperate for something to write, I’m stealing this from someone else. Actually several someones because I’ve seen this making the rounds. Bold those you’ve read. Italicize books you have started but couldn’t finish. Add an asterisk* to those you have read more than once. Underline those on your To Be Read list. (Note: […]

I have a confession

November 17th, 2007 · 5 Comments

I have a confession. I haven’t finished the latest Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and I think I may just give it up and put it away. The Huz read it shortly after it came out.  We actually bought a copy of it.  If we’d gotten it from the library, I […]

Instructions for Life

November 14th, 2007 · 2 Comments

I remember being a kid. Other kids seemed to know “stuff.” Stuff I didn’t know. I sometimes felt like I wasn’t paying attention when instructions on “how to do stuff” were being handed out.

Miss Cranky Pants

June 10th, 2006 · 1 Comment

I’m feeling a little cranky today. I’m not entirely sure why. Just bear with me here. How come Landsend, On the Counter, is selling Down Parka’s when it is 100 plus degrees outside today? I mean can anyone seriously think about buying a down parka today? In this heat? I don’t  think so. I love […]
