  • Facebook Fails
    on Jul 12, 2013 in Facebook Fails
    What are these fails that I speak of?  Grammatical fails, of course!  Sometimes when I'm surfing Facebook, I just have to facepalm (badum tss).  I am way too passive to correct people outright or tell them to their faces that I can't t...
  • A Kindle for Dad: 4th Gen Pros & Cons
    on Jul 10, 2013 in Gifts Product Reviews Life Holidays
    On Father's Day, my husband and I went down to Alabama to visit my parents.  I'd been all keyed up for this holiday, because for the first time, I was able to afford to get my dad something really neat.  In the past, presents for the people...
  • Weekly Words: The Birthday Cometh
    on Jul 8, 2013 in Weekly Words Life Books
    What's up this week?Another lesson learned: I am perceptibly getting older.  My birthday is coming up later this month, and when I look at my sheer lack of resilience in the face of young people things, I know that I am becoming old.  When...
  • Reception: A Narrative
    on Jul 7, 2013 in Life My Prose Relationships
    A little forward to this beauty: Are you ever just casually browsing social media and see a picture of someone that just makes you feel huffy and violated all over again, even though you'd forgotten about the whole thing?  That's exactly what...
  • A Poem for the 4th
    on Jul 4, 2013 in Poems and Poets Holidays
    Fireworks over Green Lake in Seattle, July 4, 1947, courtesy of MyGreenLake.comThe 4th of July is the essence of summer. It's also the essence of the U.S. It takes place right at that golden moment, when the weather has grown hot but not too hot.
  • Help Start the Cthulhu WarsThis is a call for donations to make possible what may turn out to be one of the best board games ever made.  The game is called Cthulhu Wars.  Just in case you didn't already know, I am a huge fan of H.P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos.&...
  • Bookstore of the Month: Hall's BookshopRemember my post a few days ago about a little movie called The Last Bookshop?  Because I loved the film so much, I thought it would be very appropriate to make the very first Bookstore of the Month Hall's Bookshop, where much of the filming too...
  • Bookstore Tourism
    on Jun 28, 2013 in Bookstores Books Travel
    Buy a copy of Portzline's book hereSo I've always been one to fall in love with the book stores I go to, and sometimes I'll even travel quite a ways just to visit the special ones.  That's why I'm so captivated by this fairly new concept of book...
  • Weekly Words: A Little Respect
    on Jun 26, 2013 in Weekly Words Life
    So I've noticed (and my husband has pointed out to me) that this blog provides information but is somewhat lacking my personal voice.  My new weekly post is part of my effort to change that and to thereby take this blog into a less boring and bl...
  • The Last Bookshop
    on Jun 24, 2013 in Suggested Watching Movies
    The other day, I came across this short independent film from a group called The Bakery in the U.K.  It was released about two months ago, and from what I understand, it has enjoyed a mild amount of fame.  I know that this blog doesn't have...
