First of all, I hope everyone down in the USA is having a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!! I’m guessing you’re all in a turkey/stuffed yourself coma or out braving the insanity that is Black Friday, lol. The Black Friday sales are even spreading up here to Canada today and I’m still debating about making my way out to see what’s to be had for great sales.
I went and saw Breaking Dawn Part 1 yesterday with my best friend and it was AWESOME! I was impressed with the way that they handled the story-line and with the special effects. I even had tears in my eyes a few times during the wedding, lol. I can’t believe that they’re making us wait till next November for the last movie when they’re already done filming it. That’s just cruel. They should release it in the summer! Pffft… So who all has seen the movie? Care to discuss it in the comments? What did you think? Favorite parts? Cheesy Parts?
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I’ll give fair warning and say SPOILER ALERT in the comments of this post!
I have a question for you all. I’m finding as I get older or have read that many more books in my life, that I am losing interest in books that aren’t written in first person. I just can not seem to get into a book written in third person point of view anymore!? All the “she said” and then “he said” and then “she did…” and “he responded…” Gah! It’s tedious for me now and I have a harder time relating to or caring about the characters when it’s written in third person POV. Does anyone else feel the same way or am I just an eccentric, picky reader? SVR wants to know!
I want to wish all my fellow Canadians a Happy Turkey Day! I hope that you are all able to celebrate with loved ones and enjoy a good meal!
I would like to give thanks for technology, because without it I wouldn’t be able to have this blog to share with you all my love of reading and to connect with other book lovers who love to read the same kinds of books that I do. I also give thanks to technology because with the running of my blog I get to connect with some really amazing authors whom I get the opportunity to get to know a bit better, which for me is still really, really cool.
First off, I hope all my fellow Canuck’s had an awesome Canada Day long weekend! I also hope all my American readers had a great 4th of July long weekend! Geez, we were partying it up on this side of the ocean all weekend, lol. 😀
I recently updated the New Releases list, so July’s on there and even a few August releases are up. Thank you Chapters/Indigo for the Buy 3 Get 1 free sale where I loaded up on new releases. I’ve also updated my Rec’d 2010 page, so if you’ve sent me a book for review and are wondering if I’ve received it, you can find out there.
I’m still working on updating my “My Books” pages, having a heck of a time trying to work with Open Office documents on my recently installed Microsoft Office/Word. It’ll get there, but in the meantime, my GoodReads and LibraryThing are usually updated to within a week if you’re wanting to scope out my ridiculously huge library.

Hee hee, I have to share this with you guys. I saw it awhile ago and it just made me giggle. Too cute for words!
I just wanted to pop in from all the craziness to wish you all an Awesome Holiday season! My best to you and yours, may you receive all that you wish for and more. 🙂
Today is Rememberance Day up here in Canada and I’d like to take a moment to give thanks to all the brave men and women in our military for their strength, their sacrifice, and their efforts on our behalf.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow (1)
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
To my brother Kai, I hope you come home safely soon. I love you.
Sorry I didn’t plan any big Halloween events here this year. I’m battling the flu that never ends, but wanted to wish everyone an Awesome Halloween!! I hope you all have fun and stay safe.
