A couple of announcements before getting to today’s meme.(this was predrafted Tuesday evening for a “just in case” situation and will be published as a “scheduled post” since this corner of the world is expecting a blizzard around midnight with high winds).
One, is that late yesterday afternoon, as New England was preparing for a Nor’easter, I was feeling warm and fuzzy again, due to a very kind blogger. Teacher/Learner from Whatcha Readin’, Books?: A Teacher/Learner’… Blog presented me with this award:
Thank you so much for thinking that my blog is stylish, it means a lot to me. I am, however, going to take the liberty of passing on the rules, since I just did this 2 days ago and don’t want to bore you all again. But Thank you Teacher/Learner from the bottom of my heart. And please, take the time and stop by her blog and say hi!!
And, as I mentioned, New England is preparing for another Nor’easter whereas, EMA, State Officials have already had Press Conferences, announcing closings of businesses, roads, bridges, schools, etc etc with anticipation of 1+ feet of snow and high winds, which could mean power outages across the state. Thank goodness for books and candles, so I’m all set. But if it’s quiet from this corner of the blogosphere, you will know why. I will be curled up, with my warm throw, a hot chocolate, and my current read!!
My reviews are short in words and I do not reiterate the synopsis. I conducted a poll and the majority said they would rather read short reviews with detailed information. My opinion is that a book will get more attention with this format as compared to a lengthy review where the reader would lose interest.
I am accepting books from authors, publishers and/or agents for my review and/or honest opinion. Please click on REVIEW POLICY (at top of blog) for complete listing. Mystery/suspense are favorite genre. I will also accept Print Children's books. Kindle, Nook, IPad accessible. I will not accept any monetary compensation for said opinion. Unique visitors: approx 1,000/week. Please email me regarding any requests and I will respond ASAP. Please see disclaimer of FTC guidelines located left sidebar of this blog.
