Reading makes you dumb?

This comment has been going around my online book club.  It raised discussion, but most of the discussion was about how wrong the original author was.  A lot of the comments were about how the author’s comment muddied up the thoughts in the brains of the book group members.

I don’t really read for knowledge.  I read for entertainment.  I don’t read to write more books.  I don’t write expecting to give knowledge to anyone.

The final decision was that the author is just attention seeking and trying to get others to talk about him.  It seems that it worked.

Post #300

When I started this blog in October, I thought it was going to go the way of my other blogs. I used to blog sporadically, and then give up on it. I think I just hadn’t figured out the right topic for me.

I go off topic a lot, but I generally stick to book and getting myself to “normal.”  It just clicked when I found my topic and allowed myself to go off topic a little.

I have been enjoying writing the blog more than I thought I would.  I never thought I would get to 300 posts, but here we are!  I am grateful for all of you who follow and like regularly.  Thanks for reading!

What a mess

I have many draft posts ready to go.  I am prepping for my upcoming trip.  I have posts that are ready to post, but I am waiting on them.  I have some that just have titles.  I have some that are partially written.  I have the prep work done for some of the challenges, but I need to read the books, still.  I have to decide which books are going with me, too.

I am sorting and writing and basically just wading through the mess.  It will be beautiful when I am finished, but you can’t see the mess that is in the background.  It will get sorted out and completed by the end of the month, I think.

The biggest lie

I learned long ago that I need to write it down if I’m going to remember.  Or text it.  Otherwise, I end up stressing about remembering to not forget.  If I can’t write it down right away, I count tasks on my fingers.  I know that if I have four things to do, I’ll remember 3.  I write it down the moment I can.  I will forget.  No question.

Prepping for vacation

I have an upcoming vacation. I am doing the last minute things, even though it’s not really last minute yet.

I went to purchase what I need for the trip. I haven’t quite finished, but I got the majority done.

I tried to get a mani pedi done, but I ended up getting called in to go to work, so only the pedi got done.

I got to work and finished up on record time. Then I went to buy sunglasses for the trip. I am almost ready! I am planning on getting the manicure soon.

I also found a lot of memes and book related photos to write about when I’m away. I am sure I’ll have time to write, so I’ll publish when I’m back. At least I don’t have to think about what I’m going to write about. I’ll figure out other topics, too, while I’m away. Always thinking…

One more book…

You’re able to bring one author back to life to write one more book. Who do you choose?

I never read any of the Sue Grafton books.  She wrote the alphabet series from A-Y, but passed before she could write her Z book.  I would love for her to come back and finish the series.  Her family wishes that Ms. Grafton’s final requests be respected, so there won’t be a ghost writer and there won’t be any movies made of the books.  I understand that.  It just would have been nice if she could have finished the whole series.
