Sunday Sayings

 I’ve been enjoying books.  I mean REALLY enjoying.  It has helped me escape the realities of my mind and issues that I feel just aren’t in my control right now.  I enjoy the fact that I can know someone in a situation in a book (even though they aren’t always real) that gets through it.  I enjoy fantasizing while reading the book and picturing what the people, town, and situation must look and feel like.  Books are awesome!  They’re therapeutic in their own way.  This is what’s fun to me.

Currently I’m reading a book my daughter received for Christmas that she said is a MUST read.  It’s called Pegasus: The Flame of Olympus by Kate O’hearn.  It’s good for her age group, she’s 11 almost 12, 6th grade.

I’m also reading the first installment of the Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz.  I love me some Koontz.

Happy Reading everyone!  Enjoy your Sunday funday!

Keep It Simple Saturday

I’ve had a fad of a few weeks.

First off, I just finished the Fifty Shades of Grey helltry.  Why did I read it?  Because I wanted to keep up with the Jones’ and well it seemed every other woman out there was reading the damn books so a friend of mine let me borrow her Kindle (now that’s a friend) and I started on them 2 weeks ago.  Mommy Porn?  Naw, just a very long drawn out no nonsense book that I have issues with.  Bad writing, although by the end of the third book the author got better at writing.  Good plot, seriously it did have a plot and it was a good one but you didn’t really get the jist of it until part way through the second book.  Using the same words and sentences over and over again.  Look if you can say ‘kinky fuckery’ you better be able to say the word vagina and this author couldn’t seem to do that at all.  Say it with me people vaGIna, it’s okay to say it but this author decided to call it ‘a sex’.  Sigh.  She really could’ve cut these three books down into one but then again she wouldn’t have made 20 million dollars in one month so we had to endure 3 books of sex six times a day.  I found myself by the end of the first book just clicking next on the Kindle to get past the ‘I can have an orgasm every time I have sex with this man just by him blowing on my nipple and saying my name’ parts of the book.

Now who do I envision Christian Grey to be (which in all honesty this is the point of this post, I just wanted to share this video because it’s hot and I needed an excuse), this guy right here:

You’re welcome ladies (and gentlemen).  Coincidentally I also envision Guap like this except he’s hitching his leg up on a unicorn and singing merrily.

Oh I also saw Magic Mike.  I don’t recall a plot or dialog in that movie but do recall Matthew McConaughey and well…

Keep It Simple Saturday

Today is Saturday so you know what that means, I’m trying to move as little as possible and I’m reading.  Check out this book I found, it’s called Tales from the Hotel Central by Gil C. Schmidt and it’s so good it has a book trailer:

Mr. Schmidt is a superb author even though he’s a Pittsburgh Steelers fan.  Check out some of his writing here:  Gil The Jenius and here:  Gil Schmidt At Work.  I promise you won’t be sorry.

Enjoy YOUR Simple Saturday!

Keep It Simple Saturday

This year I made a simple goal for myself to not read anything heavy, I mean I can if I want to but I’m for reading fun dribble this year.  24 books, just 24.  Shouldn’t be too hard, of course talk to me in December 2012 when I’m freaking because I haven’t had anytime to read but I figure 2 books a month is doable for me without any pressure.  (btw the Goodreads widget WordPress.com is using is awful, I haven’t decided what I want to do about that.  Anyone know of a ‘currently reading’ book widget that is compatible with WordPress.com?)

So for my first Keep It Simple Saturday post of 2012; I’m drinking pumpkin spiced flavored coffee and reading Thirst by Claire Farrell.  It’s fun and sassy right now in Chapter 6 so I’m relaxing and having a great time today.

How about all of you?  Reading anything enjoyable?  Not so enjoyable but making yourself do it?  How simple is your Saturday, even if it has nothing to do with books and coffee?
