The computer is sort of fixed....

OK -- the computer is definitely going to the Sony Store....I paid Geek Squad to install a 250 G harddrive...and guess what -- I only have a harddrive of 141 G! Isn't that special?

Review Policy

Updated 5.1.12

Right now, I am super behind with my reading and reviews, so I am not accepting anything unless I already have a relationship with the author or you are working with a major publisher.  

I wish I could review every book that comes my way, but that is next to impossible and I can only get to those books that really interest me.  Thank you for understanding that this blog is my labor of love and that I don't even cover my expenses with the bit of advertising that comes my way.  

I enjoy reading Chick Lit, Paranormal - Urban Fantasy - Sci Fi - Fantasy, Young Adult and Memoirs/Biographies.  I do have eclectic tastes, so ask me!  I did get a nook but I find it very hard for me to read so I don't really care for ebooks. Have more questions?  email me

Publishers:  I adore debut authors, anything to do with dogs, entertainment or weirdness.  I have a weakness for romance,  historical fiction/nonfiction and humor.  I am happy to host an author for a giveaway, guest post or interview.

I post my reviews to:

Amazon (Vine Voice)
Facebook Page


YAY - my computer is back....

I am back up and running on my computer.....

Why there is not enough Xanax in the world....

OR Why the Geek Squad should never be allowed to touch computers ever again.

I knew there was something wrong right from the start when my husband insisted on taking my laptop to Best Buy (AKA Worst Buy for Repairs). I should have said no right away. Instead of something simple wrong with my computer, every day brings a new issue. Today, the touchpad doesn't work. What will it be tomorrow? I don't think I can stand it anymore. It needs to go back to Sony and be fixed right....

Getting Ready!

I hope to have everything together to start January 1st!
I have lots of great plans to discuss books, give some books away, talk about my garden and of course, my dogs!
