Even a bad guy can have redeeming qualities

Communications scholar Marshall McLuhan believed in deciding whether or not you’ll like a book, you simply need to read Page 69.  I’ve decided to put this to the test each Friday.  I’ll provide the page and, then at the end, let you know where it’s from.  Let’s see if it works!

Swapoween Reveal

2015swapoweenbutton

I recently participated in my first ever blogger swap.  It was hosted by the wonderful ladies over at Chaotic Goddess and it was completely Halloween themed!  I’m told that normally you are assigned a partner and the two of you swap packages but, since we had an uneven number of participants, this swap worked more like a round robin event.  I sent a goodie package to the fantastic Lauren over at Shooting Stars Mag but the package I received was from Rebecca over at Everyday Life.  I really enjoyed it because it gave me two new blogger friends to meet and learn about.  Onto the reveal!

 

My package was awesome!  There were so many kitchen/dining related goodies in the package.  I mentioned that I’m not really big on candy and she was nice enough to not put any in.  That was so thoughtful of her!

See all the goodies??  She sent me two sets of kitchen towels and two oven mitts that have super cute Halloween designs.  There was also a glittery bow with spiderwebs, Halloween themed ice cube trays, some paper straws, and two amazing skull goblets that I just love.  But my favorite thing in the entire package was this…

How cute is this little headband??  I put it on the moment I opened the package and wore it as I unwrapped my goodies 😀  I’ve decided to wear it to work everyday until Halloween.  The pink and gold glittery bats are just adorable and the kids in my library love touching them to make them wiggle on my head.  Thanks so much for the wonderful, thoughtful package, Rebbecca!

 

Happy Swapoween everyone!!

Odd Formats

30264880126_3f1004c0f3_n

Fiction books used to be pretty standard.  Front matter, chapter contents, about the author (or acknowledgments).  Most things were written in third person limited point of view although there was the occasional first person.  Nowadays, just about anything goes.  It’s exciting to seek out these newer “odd format” books but some are so far off the wall that they almost seem like a novelty or publishing gimmick.  Some of the ones that stick out in my mind are:  Continue reading “Odd Formats”
