This week’s question:
Where is your favorite place to find new books to read? Blogs? The library? Newspapers? Magazines? In the backs of other books? Suggestions from friends/family? Online bookstores? On the shelves of the local bookstores? (I don’t necessarily mean, ‘where do you find books to buy’ — I mean, ‘where do you discover new titles that you add to your to-be-read lists’?).
It is definitely from other bloggers’ reviews that I not only find new books to read but am also introduced to new authors. Before blogging, I had a list of many authors that I liked and would usually just read their books unless if I saw a book that caught my eye either in the library or at a book store. But this past year, my personal tbr list has become my bucket list. There are still some genres that other bloggers read and review with high ratings, which I respect, but I know or maybe I should say I think, I wouldn’t enjoy. I have also found, from bloggers, a lot of sites, to obtain books. There are many great advantages being a part of this community!
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of The Printed Page and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

“Meet Me On Monday!”
Blogging is a funny thing…we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, “who is this person!?” I know them…but yet I don’t know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to “meet” each other!
1. Have you (only you..not a group) ever won first place in anything?
Yes in 2nd grade. It was a geography contest, to name the place and town, shown from pictures posted in a collage of and in RI, and the person who was able to correctly answer the most won, what else, but a book, and I won.
2. Are your toes always painted (sorry guys…this question for girls only)?
Usually not in the winter, unless we have a special occasion to go to, then I do make an appointment. Summer…always!!
3. What color eyes do you have?
People have commented on my big brown eyes.
5. Soft cookies or crunchy cookies?
4. Look to your left….what do you see?
This is too funny…I have drafted my posts for the week and one of them I have the same question except turn to the right lol. But turning to the left I see the hallway going into the bedroom that my youngest used to live in and now just visits.
