Update To My Pre-Order List!

I'm so excited about this book and I have added it to my list. It is a stand alone story and you don't have to read the earlier books in the series. So feel free to jump in with this one. I do recommend the whole series though! Kallypso has written some amazing stories with this series.

Sex and Reading

This is the topic of a post over on Goodreads. I'm sharing the infographic here as well.

So in looking at my own reading shelf, I know that I predominantly read books written by women but I did read 3 books by Scott Hildreth this year and I really like his writing. I plan to read more by Mr. Hildreth in the future.

Now that it's November

I love November! I am so excited that my hubby has decided to go NoShaveNovember this year.  He had a beard and mustache when we met and after shaving clean for our wedding, he maintained a beard and / or mustache for many years. But the last few years he has been clean shaven and I have missed the facial hair. And on a sillier note, my DS who is 16 is also participating.  We can't really tell though! I keep telling him to shave more frequently to get a heavier beard but what does a mom know?

And for me, this November means that I am trying my hand at writing my own book with NaNoWriMo.  I have several beginnings in my past but this year I have made the commitment to go forward and so far - so good! If you are participating in NaNoWriMo, feel free to add me as a buddy.

Just a quick recommendation - non book related

Every now and then I come across a product that is totally awesome and the price is terrific. This phone case is one of those times.  I bought two of these cases for my oldest children when they got their S3's for Christmas last year. They have protected the phones so well! I've been very impressed. They have been in hand when falling, dropped, etc and still the phones themselves look brand new.  I highly recommend these cases for your active kids.
