Once more, I continue to work on my New Year's Resolutions.  I basically have a few related resolutions (about reading books) that I will continue until the end of the year, and won't know whether I will be successful until then.  Yes, I am still counting my steps and working out with my treadmill...

It's a little more than a month since the world celebrated the New Year and possibly made New Year's resolutions.  For those who are of Asian descent, tomorrow starts the Chinese or Lunar New Year--the Year of the Rabbit, which is known by its formal name of Xin mao.  Back though to the subject at...

Having blogged this whole year about my New Year's Resolution to read more books, I am going to start with my accomplishments.  First, I succeeded at reading more books; as of today, I have read/completed sixty-six books (not counting the four Fancy Nancy from the I Can Read series that my older...

With about a month left in the year, I am still dealing with my one-and-only New Year's Resolution, which was to read more books this year.  Last year I read sixty-five books, and at this juncture I have completed sixty books.  It will be close, especially since I have a bookcrossing.com SIY going...

As I have often mentioned, I am a member of the community known as bookcrossing.com.  I share books with others and they share books with me.  I release books "in the wild" to be picked up by anyone who comes across them; I also participate in controlled releases, which are books that are...

Confession time here: I am an adult color-er, err, colorist, err, colorizer--not sure of the correct terminology here.  Suffice it to say I like to color (as in coloring books and crayons).  Most people give up the practice when they are ten to twelve years old and perhaps even earlier, but I have...

I'm so excited to be hosting my first bookcrossing.com bookray.  To explain, a bookray is when a book is sent to several people in a defined order until all the members get to read the book. The leader sends the book to the first reader who then sends it to next reader, and so on until all the...

Just recently, I discovered through bookcrossing.com the list of "1001 books you must read before you die" which was compiled by Peter Boxall.  Okay, I will admit that I am a bit behind the times; this book, by the aforementioned Mr. Boxall, with its list of must reads apparently came out...

As I often mention here, I have become, in the last year, a bookcrosser.  A bookcrosser is a person who trades books, leaves books randomly in the "wild", and just believes that books have a life of their own (and they want to live it beyond the shelf). The more I get involved, the more I...

To me, January is the time to hibernate.  I would rather sleep, read, drink a cup of tea or hot chocolate, and avoid going outside. If I were in charge, and frankly I am not, everyone would truly hibernate by sleeping away all of January and most of February.  Think of it.  Everyone would lose some...
