Q: Activity: Spine Poetry. Create a line of poetry with your book spines (take a picture). Not feeling creative?

Hoppity Hop Galore #31: Summer reading favs…

Q: School is out! What is your favorite Summer Reading book??Hmm... I don't like summer. It gets super hot here, like unbearable heat, air feels hot as you breathe. I hate summer, I really do. Spring and fall are my thing. But anyway, due to my hate of summer, I tend to read winter stories or stories that include cool climate. Seriously, don't laugh! I don't mean winter holidays stories (that I rarely if ever read anyway), but just winter/cold climate stories. Those are my summer favs :D» Click to show the #FF Linky List.. « What about you guys?

Hoppity Hop Galore #29: Outdoors reading

Activity! Hopefully warm weather for most of us is here soon…so tell us about your favorite outdoor reading spot. Or take a picture.Ok, don't laugh but prepare to be seriously underwhelmed. I never read outdoors. I live in an apartment building in the city so I'd have to go to a park or something to do outdoors reading, and parks are sort of few (though big and beautiful, I admit) and crawling with shouting kids, loud people in general and just, ugggh, crowds, swarms of people moving about or selling stuff. Can you pick up on my levels of enthusiasm? Read more [...]

Dear Author,

Dear Author, I will begin this post by warning you: you don't want to live in a place where the thought/speech police exists. You know how I know this? Because where I live it existed for 50 years. It's not really gone now, either. It wasn't metaphorical, they were real people beating five shades of nachos out of you for saying something that wasn't approved of. You were defenseless before them, they could just come into your house at whatever time, pick you up, beat you dead and leave your body in a forest. It didn't matter who you were or what Read more [...]
