Newsday Tuesday:

I have some fun things to share for April 10th.  First, go without shoes tomorrow for TOMS’ One Day Without Shoes.  They can say it better than me so check it out to the right. The other thing is the Goodread’s Book Blogger Award.  I really wasn’t going to enter myself in this because I do not have the luck of my Irish ancestors, but I would love to go to the book convention and take my mother on a trip to NY.  If you like this blog, please just take the time to vote for me.  I will go as low as putting cherries on top to earn your vote.

And now for the usual:

  • The big sleep bookstore: sounds like a store in Sleepy Hollow.  Maybe I should hibernate there in the winter instead of wearing scarves, turning red, and shivering.
  • “blog” tights: I need these.  I commenced in googling until I found any reference to blogging on a pair of tights.  I’m pretty positive that they don’t quite exist yet – blogging tights, or blogging leggings, in case you’re wondering.  What we need are “blogging is sexy” tees.  Yum.
  • poems about liking a boy: Aren’t you cute.  Look up Romeo and Juliet, buy a dagger.
  • why is carolyn forche a good poet: WHOAREYOU.  And you can’t capitalize a name (even in a google search).  You’re hearby kicked off this blogging island.  Banned.  Banished. Exiled. Removed by deadly force.
  • wwjd bracelet font:  One thing you don’t know about me… since I was fourteen I’ve worn a WWJD bracelet on my left wrist.  When one breaks, I immediately run out to the Family Christian Store and get a new one.  I used to have a rainbow one – it was my gay pride Jesus bracelet, now I just have black.  I like the person who googled this, they get me.
  • my rabbit’s ears are gleam:  poet?

Book News:

If you’re new to my blog, I’m obsessed with Alice.  There really only is one Alice, so I can’t really elaborate.  I need to go to bed.

Christopher Lee reads Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky.”

  1. Once again, interesting and provocative links that send me all over the internet! A question: I’ve seen you mention pen pals a couple of times. I’m guessing you have a pen pal? How did you get started with that? I’d be really interested in having a pen pal of my own!

    1. Anna, Ill be your penpal. I did a month of letters in March on my blog and bloggers gave me their addresses to send letters. Just email me. I love new penpals.

      1. I got it – I’ll definitely send you my address and we can mail write – I enjoy that much more than email and I respond better.

  2. Hi C, I sent you an email with take 2 of my story yet there’s no reply to this poor wannabe writer!
    Please check email in your junk section! :)

  3. So, when do we hear how it’s going up there in Philly? Good list of info, I don’t know where to begin, but I may start with the poetry.

      1. I should have my 5th review up hopefully by the end of this week. I am one short right now to enter myself. Hopefully I get in there in time! I would love to go to this, but cannot possibly manage without winning.

      2. I am going to try! I would love to be able to go and network with other bloggers and learn some tips and tricks of the trade, so to speak. If you do win, please be sure to blog about it!

      3. Lisa, you’re lovely. The community of bloggers I’ve found though my blog has been wonderful and I hope the best for you as well. When I’m on my computer and not my phone I will be sure to follow you so that I can be a part of our journey. :)

      4. Awesome! Thanks. I have been blogging for years, but only recently started a book blog. I love books and talking about books and my family got sick of hearing from me, so I decided to go global. I have met some wonderful bloggers and some awesome authors I never would have found otherwise. It is a great community. I set myself up on Book Blogs, mostly to network. Thanks for checking me out! Feel free to give me any pointers on things you think I should improve when you do, best way is through the contact form on the About page.

    1. You’re the best and of course that’s a deal. OF COURSE. In fact, we’d have to just get you a ticket to the book expo and we can make a whole big day of it.
