Final Wordery Update

So my book finally came today.  It was much, much longer that 11 working days, but at least it came.  The box was actually really nice, but too big.    Which means my book slid around inside during transit, which means some of the corners of my book for gnarled.     And the free bookmark…

Happy Jason Voorhees Day!

Or Happy Friday the 13th as most people call it.     As per my family tradition, we will spend the day watching Friday The 13th movies and treat ourselves to pizza, fries and soda.   It’s also a celebration that I made it through three days of horrible training at my new job and have decided…

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.  …

Banned Books Week

  It’s that time again.  The last few years I’ve tried to make a point of participating, this year I hope to do better than before.  I don’t understand why some people believe that banning books is helpful, when in fact it is detrimental.  Censorship is wrong and we all need to exercise our right…

Review: This Book Is Full Of Spiders

Review: I. Hate. This. Book.   Okay, not really, but the ending, which I won’t spoil, was upsetting.   So let me tell you, this book was well and truly full of spiders.  Gross.  It made me shudder just reading about them!!!!  This sequel was all together creepier, and more serious than it’s predecessor.  John Dies…

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…

Review: American Assassin [movie]

I’m a huge Dylan O’Brian and Michael Keaton fan, which is the main reason I wanted to see this in the theater.  There are very movies I want tk see in the theater, unless it’s for family time–which this somehow turned into.   This is my kind of movie.  I love spies, assassins, military, war,…

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…
