Second Favorite Month…

So October is my second favorite month for a couple of reasons.  One being Halloween, my favorite holiday.  Another being Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon (which is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this year.)  My wedding anniversary is this month.  And most importantly, it’s the month my first born decided to make her entrance into the world.  …

Wordery Shenanigans Update

So after my scathing email with bullet points clearly detailing their incomeptence, they emailed me again.  They claim that my account–which they kept insisting I didn’t have–and the payment method had different email adresses.  Now this is true; however, never in the history of ever has this been an issue with any other place I’ve…

I Am Livid

I had calmed down, completely willing to give Wordery the benefit of the doubt.    Today I recieved almost the exact same email as I recieved initially.  Blah, blah I don’t have an account and NOTHING regarding my order.  I’ve just sent a scathing email with bullet points, clearly explaining everything to them.  This is…

Irritated

After reading about my reluctance at buying from Amazon, someone suggested Wordery.com to me.  So of course I immediately checked it out, created an account, and added a bunch of books to my wishlist.  And last week, I saw that the pre-order for the next book in the John Dies At The End Series is…

Reading progress update: I’ve read 346 out of 450 pages.

Technically this book is only 406 pages; the rest is a expert from another book.  So I am soooo close to the end!  It’s so good, but I’m so tired.  I need to nap before I can continue.  It’s sad getting to the end, because there will be no more John and Dave shenanigans until…

Silly Hubby…

left me to my own devices in a store that sold, among other things, books.  I went on a road trip with hubby (he’s a trucker), and I’m not allowed to go inside some of the refineries.  Usually he drops me at the truck stop where I sit and read.  This time it was a…

Review: Go Ask Alice

Review: I don’t know what to say about this book.   I don’t know how I feel about this book.    This book was haunting. It was horrifying.  It was sad. It was heartbreaking.   This is basically a handbook for what not to do when you’re a teenager.  This poor girl.  I can’t even…

Review: The Joy Luck Club

Review: So, I hate when I keep books on my ‘TBR’ list for so long that I regret waiting so long to read them.  I loved the movie, so I knew the book would be even better.  After having read the book, it is better (of course), but doesn’t take away from the movie.  …

Crazy Cat Lady

  I’m a crazy cat lady.  My family takes care of three strays out front of my house and one in the back.  We made them a shelter for the colder/wetter weather.  I was just cleaning the front cat house in preparation for the colder weather, when a  HUGE EFFING SPIDER jumped out and tried…

Random Thoughts While Reading

Am I the only weirdo that misses seeing things like this in the back of books?    Am I really that old that I remember nearly very  book I read in the 80s and part of the 90s having these?! Original post: Virago77.booklikes.com/post/1596650/random-thoughts-while-reading
