About

Sit under a shade tree.Feel it’s long branches encircle you. Wait for its cooling breezes. Read a good book. Feel the theme of that book encircle your mind. You  know are wanting more just a you want more breezes on a warm day.

I am a novice when it comes to blogging.  This blog is about book reviews,from me, an avid life long reader.I find my tastes in reading changing as I age and I love exploring new genres.  Initially I was hesitant about blogging(who wants to hear my thoughts?) But as a Net Galley member(the publisher sends you free books in exchange for a review) I learned quickly Net Galley recommends a blog.

I also intend to write personal thoughts on whatever captures my imagination.

So I am taking the plunge into the blogging world.It will take time. Hopefully it will be worth it. Am sure I will be playing with my site a lot until I like the appearance. So please excuse the construction. I am leaning a lot from other bloggers who have beautiful sites with awesome postings.   Kudos to Online Blogging University and the  blogging 101 class.  Thru them I am learning  the basics of blogging and site appearance. And I am meeting new  blogging friends!

Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!

      Wow Thank you so much for nominating me for the Liebster award. I feel very honored. I just want to understand if I have the rules correct and where I go from here. I am so new at this. So this is how I see it: 1) I go to your site and answer the 11 questions that you have posted 2) I then find 11 more sites that I nominate and they have to be under 200 followers..(how do I find out how many followers they have??) I post the new nominations to my site 3) I post 11 new questions for the nominees. Is this all correct?
      Again thank you so much You are too kind.. I love love the daisy picture. My son had a dog named Daisy(a Norwegian Elkhound) She was the sweetest dog ever.
