Blog Hop (4)

Book Blogger Hop


This week's question comes from Jen B. who blogs at I Read Banned Books:



"Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different?"

When I thought of a blog name I played around with alliteration, but nothing seemed to fit. Then I saw my broken book light on the table. My BFF always picks on me for using a flashlight to read at night. (She's the one that bought me the book light for a Christmas present.) Old habits die hard, I guess. I still use a flashlight to read. It's cheaper to replace batteries than to buy a whole new light when the kiddos break/lose them. Plus, I now have a super cute pink flashlight all to myself. =)

So, in answer to the question, I think the blog name fits me. For those that know me well enough, they can appreciate the humor in the name.


I am going to post something "extra" on this blog hop. I'm starting a lunch time book club with some preteens at school. WE NEED A BOOK CLUB NAME. I can't think of anything that would fit my very diverse group of readers. Please help!







Share your current fav television show! Tell us a bit about it...

Watch t.v.? Boo. Wish I had time... I might catch the news once in a while. Of course, I didn't know about Egypt until two days after the revolt started. I really don't watch television. =/ I should probably sign up for the newspaper.

  5. What's in a name? Everything! A name is a label, a description and a promise. I'm very happy with mine - "Howard Sherman, Implementor" but it was quite a journey to get there.

    Hop on over to my blog and find out why - http://www.howardsherman.net

  7. New follower.

    30 Rock rocks. How can you not love a show that coins phrases like...

    "I want to go to there."

    "I love this cornbread so much I wanna take it behind a middle school and get it pregnant."

    "What the what!"

    "I can't eat this, I'm a foodie."

    "I'm wearing a tux 'cause its after six. What am I, a farmer?"

    "Oh my god, where are my manners? Do you wanna try meth?"

    "I never sleep on planes. I don't wanna get 'incepted.'"

    "Goodnight cheese."

    "First of all, I look weird there because I'm snarting."

    Ok. You have to be a fan after "snarting". That's a sneeze fart.

  10. Hopping through for the weekend. I've never used a flashlight to read...probably because I 'm a stickler for reading books with both hands (so I don't break the spine). Course, I also don't have anyone to protest my leaving the light on while I read. Maybe when I get to that point...

    As far as book club names, I'm not sure what to suggest. You could try something having to do with the school mascot...or pick something having to do with one of the first books they read together. Best of luck with that.

    Have a great weekend!

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.
