Social Distancing + More Reading = Giveaway

I am not in any way making fun of the social distancing we are all having to do. In fact, if you read my other blog you know that is not what I am doing. I thought I would have a fun giveaway and maybe give everyone a little laugh. My younger is so upset about not being able to go to all the places she wants to. She had concerts planned and places to go, people to see. I work from home so I’m here a lot anyways.

I saw something on Instagram that caught my eye and I sent it to her. It was how social distancing was something bookworms were born for. I will admit I fit that bill. I have no problem staying in the house and reading if at all possible. With the kids in the house with us instead of at school there is only so much entertaining that can be done. Thankfully I always have books on hand. I keep a box full of recent books as well as classic for various ages. I pull them out when we need them. Of course I also have my books and we all have kindles.

I actually have about fifteen books that I need to get finished by the end of next week for reviews that are coming up in the next couple of weeks. That number will fluctuate as the week continues and I read some. Then I will receive new ones. I even have a spreadsheet of emails I need to send out to authors asking for reviews. I’m a bit behind in that and it is honestly because I have a hard time saying no to an author. It is something I am working on.

I used to have an assistant who went through the requests first for me but now I do it for myself. On top of that some of my favorite authors have released new books this week. Not to mention I have been working on rereading a series I haven’t read in a while. I like to visit my favorites again. Oh and I am working on reading my way through the bible by the end of the year. So I have more than enough reading to keep me busy. It is never enough in my book (pun intended!)

I thought with everyone staying home we would all need book ideas. Of course, you can find those here on the blog since I am always posting new reviews, recommendations, etc but I really wanted to hear from you. Share with us the book you are currently reading, one you recommend,an author you love, anything as long it pertains to books. They can be audio books as well. Just drop it in the comments below and then take the entry for doing so on the Rafflecopter. FYI…. there is an extra entry for a second comment on a different day.

    Hmm, One of my favorite authors is the late Terry Pratchett. He wrote fantasy, and you might think what does he have to do with romance??? Well, there was often romance in his books, and it was often funny as all get out and still touching.

    I remember first reading ‘romance novels’ as a teen back in the Seventies. Back then, most of them were from Harlequin. They were very different, lol, to say the least. There was definitely no sex. If you were lucky, the two main characters kissed at the end.

  51. Christy Peeples DuBois

    March 26, 2020 at 12:41 am

    April 3, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    Here’s a confession: I’m not a big fan of the books like 50 Shades of Gray. In fact, I thought it was some of the worst writing I’ve ever read, lol. I read a few pages and just tossed it. I think there’s no reason for so-called ‘romance novels’ (they called them that perjoratively when I first read them, in the Seventies) to be less than a really great read. I want strong, well-written characters, plots that are not easily sussed out way before you get to the end of the book and well-written books.

    I like those family saga type novels, the thick ones that seem to last forever, lol. They make me feel like I’ve lost friends when they end because I’ve spent so much time with them. A good one is And Ladies of the Club.

    You know, I’d like to read something really funny right now and I have no idea what it would be. I feel like there aren’t a lot of love stories that are funny. It’s all drama. If anyone knows of one that is more comedy than drama, I’d love to know about it.

    I’ve always been a fan of certain eras, like WW1 or Russia in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s, the dying days of the Czars. If you’re looking for a good but tragic love story from actual history, try Nicholas & Alexandra by Robert Massie. It’s the true story of the last Czar and Czarina.

    Hmm, you know, answering a question on another of your posts reminded me of that classic love story. Lovers don’t get more star-crossed than Scarlett and Rhett, lol. If you’ve never read Gone With The Wind, you should. Read it knowing you will find offensive stereotypes, though. It is as much a comment on the time it was written, the 1930’s, as it is on the Civil War era. But the core love story is worth the effort.

    If you’re looking for books that are really different, try author China Mieville. One book had two cities that occupied the same space at the same time somehow, and they knew about each other but were not allowed to cross over. Yet somehow it all made sense, lol.

    I guess the current World situation is what reminded me of a book I read years ago called The Hot Zone. It was by a doctor who had worked in areas of the World hit by ebola and other contagious, deadly diseases. It was non-fiction. It was a fascinating book, and worth the read.

    As a kid, I loved reading books by Beverly Cleary. She wrote the Ramona the Pest books. I thought about those the other day when I saw a news story about Beverly Cleary turning 104, I think! Wow. Her books were some of the first books remember reading, when I was probably 6 or so.

    Hi…just curious about something. I along with a few others were commenting daily and entering daily on this giveaway, but I don’t see any of those people (or myself) listed among the winners. I now wonder if it’s not even worth commenting daily since no one who did was able to win. Am I missing something here? Sorry to be suspicious but I was very surprised none of the daily commenters won, since there were many prizes up for grabs. Odds should be that one of those commenting daily would win something.
