Hello World, you're beautiful.
Wanting a recommendation??? (scroll down!)
My current read is a second Shannon Hale book, and The Goose Girl was the first of her work I had ever read. It is amazing! Such beautiful prose and a great storyline. Very different! And for a YA the quality of writing was so impressive. I loved it. Take a look at her books - you'll be glad you did!!
So go ahead, snuggle up and kick back. Enjoy that cozy fire and a good book. Speaking of fire... Enna Burning is my current read, and second Shannon Hale book. (cool beans!)
Todays Tip---> want to be a great writer?? READ READ READ! That's the ticket. Every publisher, editor, and successful author around will tell you so. Heck, even Stephen King:) that's gotta tell you something.
Sad that today there are too many things competing with reading - actual reading - book in hands reading. It's too easy and flashy and stimulating to watch movie after movie - binge on Netflix episodes - play games with your thumbs for hours. But reading is so much more. More than the actual words on the page. It's using your imagination and creating more than the world described. It's taking yourself farther than you've ever been and feeling better for it. It' stretching your emotions, imagination, and vocabulary! It's BETTER.
So how do we do it? How do we compete with the flashy, easy, stimulating? How do we get the world to turn to books again? ...... sigh. I don't know. But there are so many book bloggers and authors out there fighting this fight! :) Go you! :) Lets hop on this bandwagon together and get people reading again.

What's better than some West Coast sun, smooth golden sand, and a little salt spray in the air. Just breathe.
