PINTEREST…….need I say more? Hello!!! Although I was asked several times if I ever wanted to join Pinterest, I always thought it was too much trouble, or took too long to find stuff to pin. Besides, I was too busy to constantly have my head in a screen…..OR SO I THOUGHT! Can you guess what I've been doing all week? I know you're ALL smiling because you've already "been there" and are laughing because you KNOW how addicting Pinterest can be. Right? Hey, admit it! You know I'm right! I must admit, as a self confessed idiot computer person, I am having a bit of trouble finding stuff (especially my friends) on Pinterest, I still have wasted probably 3 full days this week. NO LIE! Needless to say, I haven't got much to show/tell you. Come see my boards though….Carol Turznik.
Here are the envelopes for the week. (And, I'm pissed because the post office lost two of the same book that I sent to both girls last Saturday. Each book cost me $5.99 plus $3.00 postage……ugh! Now, I'm afraid to send another one in that same series although I have sent others successfully in the past. Oh my, what to do? They both love the "Mr. Putter and Tabby" series so much!
And, here are the books I've read the last half of February:
DEPT. OF SPECULATION by Jenny Offill
PRECIOUS THING (debut) by Colette McBeth
DESCENT by Tim Johnston
THE ROSIE EFFECT by Graeme Simsion
THE DEEP END (debut) by Julie Mulhern
You might have heard of "The Rosie Project" from a few years back. It was a great book! Do not get the sequel "The Rosie Effect". It took me 5 days to plow thorough it and I wouldn't have finished it except that I won it from Goodreads and had to give a review on it. Ugh! Too long and boring. Too bad too, because the first book was great! I'm almost done with the last one book on that list and quite honestly, although a debut, I am liking it best of the bunch. So….happy reading! I'm going to try to stay off Pinterest and concentrate on my pile of books here to read. Wish me luck! (Oh, and if you want, I'd love your names for your Pinterest boards so I can peek at what you have. Thanks!)
