Four Fantastic Reasons You Should Read More Fantasy Novels

If you are a regular on this blog, you might know that fantasy is my favorite genre. But it would be foolish of me to assume it’s yours as well. I do blog about other things, to be sure, and have written in other genres (CIRCUS IN A SHOT GLASS, woot!) Now, I’m going to… Continue reading Four Fantastic Reasons You Should Read More Fantasy Novels

Authors Need to Read Recent Fiction

I find your lack of books disturbing   The other week, another writer made a simple statement on Twitter. To sum it up: writers who want to be published should read at least one book that was published within the past five years. Reasonable suggestion, no?

What I’m Reading: January 2020

My TBR (to be read) pile keeps growing, but I need to finish what I’ve started reading, which has proven difficult lately. Don’t get me wrong. It’s nothing to do with the books I’m reading—per se.

9 Reasons for Libraries

Some people believe that the public library is obsolete, or at least headed in that direction. They see it as a waste of tax dollars, because, frankly, they don’t need it, so no one must. Can’t people just buy an e-book or paperback from Amazon? Random but obligatory Mr. Crabby shot, just 'cause Here is… Continue reading 9 Reasons for Libraries

What are We Reading?

There's a song that starts out "What are you wearing? (Who are you wearing?)" Pfft. I'm no fashionista. What I care about is "What are you reading? (Who are you reading?)" Seriously. Some people judge other people for what they wear. While I don't judge people by what they wear or read, I am a… Continue reading What are We Reading?


Reading and Rereading

There is no shortage of books to read. If you read one book for every day of your life, you would come nowhere close to having read all the books there are. But it's fun to try!
