Bridesmaids, the movie

They say this isn't a "chick flick."  I beg to differ.  I enjoyed it thoroughly: laughing at the ridiculousness, chuckling at the inappropriate vulgarity and wallowing in that delightful bittersweet melancholy at the film's end.  I thought it was the perfect girl friend movie because that's what it was about: having a girl friend and being a girl friend. 

Good schufft!

I just submitted a suggestion to - wonder if they'll take my advice?  I think they should allow account holders to create a library reference on their website so we can track our books already owned.  Not only would this be beneficial to ME so I do not duplicate purchases (hate it when that happens!) but it would give them insight into their consumers as far as what subjects & materials they invest in, regardless of where purchased.  Win-win for all. 

Personally, I think it's a brilliant idea!

Kindle Quarterly Update

Kindell, the Kindle, is 5 months old, so it's time for a check-in to see how Kindell, the Kindle, is doing...

Kindell has 13 books and 6 apps installed.  No books have been read.  At all.  One app, Mahjong, is played frequently.  The other apps (Solitaire, Notepad, Dots & Boxes, Every Word & WordSearch) do not get much attention...

The books I've downloaded (not necessarily in order) are:
  • Rooms by James L. Rubart
  • Heat Wave by Richard Castle
  • Hide in Plain Sight by Marta Perry
  • Crush by Alan Jacobson
  • Invisible by Lorena McCourtney
  • Watchlist (multiple contributing authors)
  • The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzsch & Lee Chadeayne
  • Spoilt by Joanne Ellis
  • Saving Rachel by John Locke
  • Heaven is for Real by Colton, Todd & Sonja Burpo
  • Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
  • In the Cards by Christine Schwartz

a blog to share

I am several things - a book lover & a decorator are 2 of them, so imagine my delight to happen upon a blog about the love of bookshelves, decorated bookshelves, decorated with books, of course!, and aptly named  BookshelfPorn...

Delightful eye candy, indeed!
