Thursday Ramblings

Another DawnI've been feeling ill for the last few days, and, no surprise, I now have a cold sore. I'm behind in my wirting, reading, and reviews. I'm planning on catching up and writing some reviews tomorrow afternoon. I'm ready to start Another Dawn by Kathryn Cushman, I hope to finish it quickly.

Despite feeling ill, I have managed to do Tae Bo everyday, and have lost 3 pounds. I joined, which is a great site to track your daily exercises and keep a food journal.

The Art of Romance (The Matchmakers)Wanted (Single-Disc Widescreen Edition)I saw part of the movie Wanted on FX several weeks ago. I had never heard of the movie before, and liked the parts that I saw. I bought the DVD and have watched the movie twice. I also watched the Tourist and Salt, which all star Angelina Jolie. I enjoyed Salt. I thought the Tourist was a little boring, but I liked the ending.

In the mail this week: The Art of Romance by Kaye Dacus. It looks like a good read.

Question of the week:

Q. What is on your current playlist right now?

My Answer: I guess I'm a little behind in the times, as I still listen to CDs! I was listening to the Glee: Vol. 5 CD a few days ago.

Question of the week:

If you find a book you love, do you hunt down other books by the same author?

My Answer:
I don't hunt them down, I just stumble upon them.

Thursday Ramblings - April 21, 2011

MissingI can't believe the cold weather this week. I thought this was spring! I had to bundle up just to mow the yard. I stopped making up excuses this week and decided to get back into shape. Today was my second day of the Tae Bo DVDs, and I'm a little sore, but motivated.

To writers/publishers: If you have a review request, I will get to it when I can. I'm a little behind on my reading/reviewing, but I'm trying to catch up as fast as I can.

A Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book OneIn the mail this week: Colby Agency: The New Equalizers: Missing by Debra Webb; and Fairer Than Morning by Rosslyn Elliott.

I bought the book Games of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, which is now a new series on HBO. I enjoyed the first episode, and I'm looking foward to the new show on Sunday night.
