I've been gone...

I just got back from my NYC/Bermuda vacation.  Part of the NYC week, I attended Book Expo America.  You can read about my week here, if you're interested.  Including some of the authors I met that week.

Here's some photos of the books I just unpacked, 80 pounds of books!

Books for my 12 year old grandson Oden, 
some kids gift books and some for Carrie in NC.



Non-fiction and duplicates. 
Oh, and some smutty stuff from Ellora's Cave.  The cavemen were in attendance.
The calendar and playing cards go to my single daughter Sharon.
The horns are for honk, if you're h*rny, but I can think of some other uses.
Sharon doesn't get any of these new books, 
we read some of the same things and I'll pass them to her as I finish.

Some how I missed the non-fiction!  Believe me I brought some home

Some times I get discouraged about this blog.  Books are my first love and I don't think very many people actually read these post.  I've decided I don't care, I'll keep on posting and I think I'll start doing some give a ways, here, too.
What are you reading?


  1. I read your posts when it comes. I like hearing your opinions about books. I love books and can never find enough authors to read.

  2. Please continue posting to this blog. I love reading what you are reading:) I'm currently reading My Antonia by Willa Cather. It's one that I've never read. I also just finished Cutting for Stone. Excellent read!

  3. You know I read every word on all the blogs that you read. and I know who discouraging it is when there are no comments. I will try to do better my friend. I am reading the Little House books to the grand kids. Michael just finished The Cay and is now reading Hoot. I'm not reading anything right now. Give me two week and I will have a book in my hot little hands while sitting in the surf at the beach.

  4. I've been reading your blog for, well....at least two years. Please don't stop!!! Found it one day, oh so long ago and it is on my favorites page....so I don't even have to type in the address.... You do a thoughtful, mindful job when discussing books. Very, VERY appreciated!!

  5. I just found your blog and I plan to add it to my bookmarks bar. Keep it up!
