Another Win

Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt

Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt

The week before Christmas I won another book through my Read It Forward site and their contests. The title is Angela’s Ashes and the book is based the author, Frank McCourt’s childhood and adult life. It is a New York Times bestseller and a Pulitzer Prize Winner. I’m really looking forward to reading it and suggesting it to my book club.

There’s nothing finer than curling up with a good book and float away into another life and time, don’t you think!!

You can find books that I have read on my Goodread’s site and my reviews.  Here’s a few books that I read in 2015 and are on the site:

Some of the books are audio and I listen to them when I travel to and back to visit my brother since it takes a little better than an hour to get to him and some I read when I was traveling back and forth to work.  Now most of my actual book reading occurs at night while hubby is watching TV.  I tune out of the TV and into my Nextbook.

 

The Gift That Guilts Me

Do you ever get caught up in something that you just can’t seem to stay away from and then it seems to take up all your “free” moments???
My hubby got me an Android tablet in 2013 for my birthday and I’m absolutely addicted to it.

So much so that I’ve neglected my blog and my quilting and my HUSBAND.  We watch TV together at night but now I read while he watches TV.  Android is the name of my “kindle” and I add new books to it every week while my “paper” books are gathering dust on the shelves upstairs.

Easy to charge and quick.

There's over two hundred  books on it currently.

Thanks hubby for my wonderful gift and I’ll try very hard not to neglect and ignore you from this moment on.  I’ll also devote more time to my blog and my quilting before I forget how!!!
