Before I post my author, and I will tell you, I was arguing with myself for days; if you could have dinner with one author, living or not, who would it be?
I am expecting some familiar names, and please do not let that stop you from posting, because I would honestly love to have dinner with JK Rowling, Stephen King (hold the meal), or Mr. Patterson.
I would have loved to have had a face-to-face with Mr. William W. Johnstone, whom stoked my fire for writing when I wrote to him as a young teenager, obsessed with his books, and he replied, and we had a friendly relationship for several years.
That book right there; Sweet Dreams, put me on the path to loving books for the rest of my life!
And now I have a personal library in my house, and I am constantly hunting for the books I loved as a child. Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators? They are gold now, because I cannot find a single one under $30.00, and my local library does not even carry them anymore 😦
So about that dinner…..who is it?
…to put actual bricks in 😂 Only doing spots on the wall for accents; the majority of it will be hidden behind furniture and book cases. Hence; I see the crookedness, and I like it 😃
Next the subceiling goes up, and then the tin tiles whenever Menards stops holding them hostage.
Bricks will be sponge painted along portions of the walls, and I have a huge area rug to cut down all of the brightness.
…when I come home from church to a box full of new books😃
I am hoping things start settling down so I can get back to reading and reviewing; sooner rather than later!
Tomorrow I am power shopping to get my library done. So excited for a comfortable, warm, inviting place to read.
Today? This is my bedroom…
I have two bookshelves already full in the basement that I have to move, and boxes filled with books that are waiting on my bookshelves.
Before and after pictures coming soon!
So True! I have been very good so far this year and only bought one book when I took my girls to Barnes and Noble. But I have to say; they have another library puzzle that I will be buying. Other than books, puzzles are my favorite thing EVER!
I have 3 framed puzzles of libraries in my bedroom, and cannot wait to add this to the mix! For my new personal library, that is.
I am so happy that my girls have been reading non-stop, and I started a new fantastic book that I cannot wait to review.
When you buy a new book, how long does it take you to open it, and ignore everything around you?
Me? About 10 minutes!
What are you reading right now?
Another great series I love; and this one includes recipes!
Okay; I have not tried the recipes, but they sound amazing! I have my staple of Christmas goodies I make every year, but I really need to hop outside of that small, boring box!
So, for the good stuff. A Christmas story full of murder and mayhem. What more could you ask for?
Hannah Swenson seems to be the most unlucky person you could ever meet. Unlucky at work, unlucky at love, and very lucky at finding murdered people. But, she has more than one suitor at any given time, so really; how unlucky is she?
This story has multiple murders, and multiple suspects. What more could one ask for on a negative-zero-wind-chill day?
Sorry; that is just my Michigan-me talking 🙂
While Hanna tries to run her cookie store, everyone else tries to run her life.
Have you read it? Do you love it as much as I do? Let me know! And if you ever tried the recipes, I have got to know what you thought!
