Resolution

This year I made a New Year's Resolution.  I resolved that I was going to read at least 1 book a month or at least 12 for the year to equal that.  So far I'm on track.  This is going to be rough but hopefully with my Nook it will be a tad easier.


So to start off my year with The Count of Monte Cristo...on my Nook it was a 3,000+ page paper...apparently it's not really that long.  How sad!  I just looked it up, it said it was a 1,000+ page book.  So there ya have it...still quite a read.  The book was great and the movie was just as good (I thought). 

The second book I read was The Lost Symbol.  I have read two other books by this author and have loved them all and the movies.  Why not read this one?  This one was good but I will have to go back and read it cause I'm almost sure I have missed things and some things I just didn't understand.  Other than that it was a good read.
Next on my list is called Heat Wave...I believe.  It's a Richard Castle book...just like from the TV show.  I had no idea there were books out there!  I LOVE reading and I miss it terribly!  I can't wait to reach my goal and maybe even exceed it!

  1. I got a Nook for Christmas and haven't even looked at it.. spose I should? when my daughter and son and law started showing me all it would do I just sort of zoned out. I just want to read!

  2. Watership Down is an excellent classic if you haven't read it. I really enjoyed it as an adult. Old enough maybe free ebooks are around for it.

  4. I have a hard time putting books down once I start, thats why I usually read at bedtime. :) If you can read you can go ANYWHERE!

Goose Egg

So....here is what I did for fun on Friday!  Had a blast...however I'm not sure I'll do it again.
That is my goose egg...jealous?  Yeah I knew you would be.  Want to know how to get one?  Well I'll tell you how to get one.  Help your husband load the truck up for a dump run and then get a bungee or two and help strap down said garbage.  While working on strapping things down, hold one end of the bungee while said husband works to get the other side down.  Make sure it is either hooked or it slips out of your hand, that way it can lung back at you.  THAT is how you get a goose egg like mine!  This picture was pretty much right after it happened...Frank took a picture...I thought I was bleeding profusely from my head, however that was just my head swelling.  Gorgeous!!!
Here I am later than night after an hour or so of icing it.  I had a pretty good headache going and way tender!
Now you see by Sunday night the pretty colors of the rainbow are making their appearance.  It&…
