    Leave A Light On For Me


    We Need Some Light The last several weeks have been difficult in the New Jersey and New York areas as we recover from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. After two major storms last year, Hurricane Irene and the weird Snowtober storm, I learned my lesson and made sure that I did not have too many perishables in the refrigerator. On the night of the storm, the lights stayed on for longer than we had hoped.

    Confessions Of A Book Blogger As a book blogger, I have some confessions to make. I hereby confess: I have never read any of the Harry Potter books. I have never read any of the Lord of the Rings books. I have never read any of the Hunger Games books. I have never read any of the Twilight books. I am sure that all of these are fine, fine books. But to be honest, they just don’t interest me. I don’t read them and I certainly don’t feel qualified to review them. More Confessions I don’t care about vampires, zombies, witches, fantasy, science fiction, or paranormal. Some of these books…

    My Favorite Things My favorite things that I can own right now are books. I love books in every way, shape, and form.
