Thought I would bring back movies and music features every once in a while.  Here's some movies that I've watched in the last couple of months. Note I never go to the theater so these are all Netflix viewings. The Re...

I am not sure what this breaking up the G+ social media site will mean for communities.  I know we discussed it before, but thinking a move to FB might be in the cards anyway for the group. Would you participate if the group moved to FB?
Google+ is breaking up into photos and streams -- but is it enough to entice people to actually use the social network?

Oh no, that means we're all going to have to transition to Wordpress after all, doesn't it? Or doesn't it impact GFC or Blogger? It better not.

Thanks for sharing that.  It's so true.  Reading a book is like climbing inside the brain or soul of another person.  Getting to know someone you would otherwise never get the chance to know.  How awesome is that?
“One glance at (a book) and you hear the voice of another person - perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millenia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is ...

Confession: I do 80% of my blog reading on Thursday right before my Blogger Shout-Outs post.  I really should space it out more.  I think this is why my commenting has slowed down.  
Do you have any blogging confessions?

Starting something new next Thursday!  POSITIVITY THURSDAYS. 
The idea is to remember the positive things that happen to us during the week in the book blogging community. Next week, we'd love for you to share SOMETHING NICE ANOTHER BLOGGER DID FOR YOU.  Not what you did for someone else, but somebody helping you out.  Like a gratitude journal kind of thing.  

A few examples:
1) Someone shared on their blog or via social media one of your posts.
2) Someone left a comment for you that really made your day.
3) Someone discussed a book with you on social media after you mentioned you were reading it or wanting to talk about it.
4) Someone liked or commented on your Goodreads status or review.
5) Another blogger sent you some bookish mail out of the goodness of their hearts.
6) You met up IRL with another blogger and they became a new awesome friend.
7) Another blogger made you feel better when you were having a bad day or made you laugh and laugh and laugh.

You get the idea!  Come back next Thursday and one of the moderators will start the post and you guys leave comments with your Positive Interaction you want to share from the week!  This can be from any blogger - THEY DO NOT HAVE TO BE A MEMBER OF THE GROUP FOR THIS.  We're spreading the good vibes.  We hope you will join us.

Introduction
I am a book blogger and enthusiastic reader who loves to meet new people.  I have serious obsessions with both yoga and candles.  I think I must have been a flapper and a politically-minded hippie in past lives. When I am not writing or on social media, I am either drawing and painting, dancing, singing karaoke, or with my nose buried in a book somewhere.  If I had money and health, I'd be traveling the world.
