What’s the Strangest Thing You’ve Ever Found Inside A Book?

Atlas Obscura recently posted about strange things found inside books. What's the strangest thing you've ever found? I have found other people's homework notes, letters and strange bookmarks.  Dead bugs.  Pressed flowers -- especially those I've pressed myself and forgotten about.  (And my, they bring back memories!) I think the strangest thing I've ever found

What I’m Reading – January 18th, 2015

It’s January, that classic month of deprivation and do-over, when we all try to recover from a month of horrid over-indulgence and excess. Given that, it’s probably no surprise that all my reading this month is health focused. An Easy Guide to Meditation Amazon Link Surprise! It’s not a diet book. J This year I’m

What I’m Reading – July 14, 2014

The Stand by Stephen King I’m still having a mad fling with fiction, but the number of books I’ve read have sharply declined for two reasons. The first is that we’ve (finally) started renovating, and that is eating up humungous amounts of time, both spare and not-so-spare. I’ll be writing more about that in another

What I’m Reading – June 14, 2014

Oh, I’ve been having so much fun with my reading, lately. Fiction. Tons of it. I’ve been wallowing in stories. Weeah! Getting Things Done David Allen And right out of the gate, I’m a big fat liar. This is non-fiction. But considering that the vast majority of what I usually read is non-fiction, how-tos and

What I’m Reading – May 16, 2014

I’m right into the thick of plotting and building a really big novel. Consequently, there are a lot of non-fiction research titles plugging up my readers. Let’s see: A Brief History of the Vikings: The Last Pagans or the First Modern Europeans? Jonathan Clements This is a great book for research, because it skims over

What I’m Reading – March 15, 2013

Oh, I’m so scrapped for reading time right now, it’s embarrassing.  I had lunch with another author yesterday and she asked me what I was reading right now.  I couldn’t think of a single title!  I get to read maybe a screen’s worth before I fall asleep at night. But let’s see what I’ve got

What I’m Reading – July 15

If anyone dares mention "light summer reading" around me, I tend to boil.  However, if it is going to encourage reading at all, have at it.  It's July.  Vacation time. I'm working my ass off for the September releases, so a vacation is out of the question for me.  So is a lot of light

What I’m Reading – May 15, 2013

It seems like it’s been a while since I did one of these posts.  Time has not been nice to me lately.  :) What do I have on the recent reading list on my various reading devices?  Let’s see: Let’s Get Visible – How To Get Noticed and Sell More Books Dave Gaughran’s follow up

The Next Phase of Ebook Reading – Multi-Function Devices

Okay, so I got an Android Tablet for Christmas (Asus Infinity, love you, Mark), and finally realized that while cellphone reading is sooooo convenient (it is!), there is something lovely about that full screen, with a laid-out page and actual images embedded where they're supposed to go. I never got the hang of hauling around
