Reading Like Mad

Trying to meet a “deadline.”

I’ve been reading more than I have in quite some time, which is lovely. I’ve read a few books by Christine Bell that I’ve enjoyed – and many others I :X can’t remember at the moment.

This is just a quick update – with more substance to follow when I don’t have the “eek panic rush” thing.

But I wanted to know – what are you reading? And what books would you recommend?

Tell Me Something Good

So my day was spent … well, as a day, but then with lots of driving (on my part, which made it worse), being bilked at a spa (nobody wants a Lime Kahlo), and then … extremely awkward social interaction for hours (hours)… and this headache that has been with me for days. Which is so bad I kinda feel like I’m going to vomit. >.> I know you all wanted to know.

So what I want to know is – what is the best/stupidest criminal story that you know or have heard? Or strangest/most ridiculous law?

We can even expand this to the Darwin Awards.

Teach me something, friends. šŸ˜€

Open Call for Teaser Tuesday Spots!

One Full Year of Teaser Tuesdays!

Can you guys believe it?! I started my blog the first week of January in 2010, basically. And by February I was like “… I need to do somethingĀ new – somethingĀ different – so I thought about it, and went with what I love. Book excerpts. More than anything else, excerpts are what sell books to me.

So then I put out a few twitter calls, and emailed people, and most authors were all “sure I can share an excerpt. Hey I’ll do a giveaway too!”

And I was all “!!!” and so it was bornstarted. (Can’t say that “b” word because we all know how I hate the whole sentient beings vs inanimate objects thing.)

I’m curious though – what do you think about excerpts? Do you look for them before you decide to read or buy a book? Have you ever up and bought a book based on an excerpt you readĀ here?!

I think it’d be >.> very important for you to answer. Of course I also think I should make some sort of clever/adorable graphic.Ā And so I did, y’all!

And… just a little side note – but … what would you guys think if I started taking advertisements from [authors] here? Good thing? Bad? Like or dislike? Would you care or notice?

**ETA: Duh – haha, I thought this was clear but sometimes it is in my head and not to others… if you’d like to participate in a Teaser Tuesday, please contact me. I’d love to have you!
