  • On Writing by Stephen King

    The first part of the book is about Steven King becoming a writer and what it took to become successful. I admire the tenacity it took to accomplish getting published.

  • First Line Friday

    December 28, 2019 by

    “Battering ram! Don’t fail me now!” Optimus raised his fist punching the wall above his head. The girl beside him stroked his broad shoulders kissing him passionately. There was no response. In frustration he looked at the woman it took a night’s gambling to bed: pale blonde hair—real blonde, not dyed. Like spider silk when… Read more

  • NY Times

    December 27, 2019 by

    For twenty years I’ve enjoyed getting the daily news from the NY Times for free. Ten years ago they put a limit on how many articles you could read for free and slowly reduced the number. Last year all I could get were the headlines. There are a number of editors opinions and particularly contributors… Read more

  • CH: English History

    December 25, 2019 by

    This is an ambitious book covering the history of England from pre-history to the end of WWII. This condenses down all aspects of the time covered making it too general and vague. Major parts of English history are skipped entirely. The Celtic Britons are barely mentioned. Romanization is mentioned and the devastation of the Saxon… Read more

  • Review: Insects

    December 21, 2019 by

    This came in a four book set. I thought it was a murder mystery using insects to solve the mystery. Oops. This is an insect version of Jaws. American entomologists travel to Brazil to study insects in the rainforest. They take pictures of a large cockroach before they scatter. They take the pictures to a… Read more

  • Captivating History ARC

    December 13, 2019 by

  • Wednesday Challenge: First Memory

    December 11, 2019 by

    My earliest memories were growing up in Pueblo, Co. My maternal grandparents owned a business. It was called The Record Music Store. We lived in a small two bedroom house, but it had a basement. My father worked at the store, as we called it, with my uncle. The store sold records, at that time… Read more
