August Reads Recap and Reading Challenges Update….

Where I spent my August  Ok so for a week in August I was in Ship Bottom on Long Beach Island in New Jersey. But for the rest of the month I was all over the place thanks to the five books that I read. Well actually only four of them took me someplace other than my own mind, which is where You are not Your Brain took me!   My Travels Via My August Reads First, Parnell Hall's latest Stanley Hastings adventure took me to New York City.

Mid-May 2017 Reading Challenges Update

Mid-May Reading Challenge Update... Ok so I really must apologize for not posting here for a fairly long time. But just because I haven't posted doesn't mean that I haven't been reading or listening.

This Man Read’s 2017 Reading Challenges…

This Man Reads 2017 Reading Challenges..... Two  years ago I signed up for several Reading Challenges on various websites. The result was that the challenges helped me remain more focused with my reading. So last year I created my own Reading Challenges. They were meant to keep me focused and reading a variety of books. So here is my 2017 version. I probably should have created these reading challenges back  in December, but I was too busy trying to get past 51 books to do it!   But you know that they always say,"Better Late than Never". So here are my...

Sometimes I find myself in a writing funk and well this is one of those times!  We had a great Christmas and like everyone it went by to quickly.
