ADDICTION
will kill you
that's all I need
to say
It is one of
Mankind's greatest
Threats that
Have going
Today
Getting high no
Lie is great
when you are down
But when it's over
And real life Comes
Rushing back
You will be lucky
To be alive not in jail
Or somewhere on

It's back to school time here in the Upper Midwest. While I'm certainly NOT going back to school, I thought September 1 would be a great time for my personal reading challenge.

Rival Gates Rival Gates's blog:
Necromancer first tested the theory that the best hiding place
was in plain sight. He examined a bin of staffs by the door. There
was nothing out of the ordinary about any of them. Angered, he
used his magic to toss furniture around and search the kitchen,
bedrooms, attic and cellar. With the interio... Read more of this blog post »

"But where will I keep my stamps?"

As ludicrous as it sounds, this was among the pressing conundrums that kept me awake at night last spring.

That's when I decided to make the plunge from a full-time day job to full-time pursuit of my fiction and freelance writing.

I'd had the same job with the same... Read more of this blog post »

Verónica Calvo Verónica Calvo's blog:
Qué eterna se hace la tarde
cuando no llegas.

Como Penélope tejo
y destejo estos versos...

y te añoro,
y te sueño allende estas tierras
donde tu ausencia me destierra.

Qué eterna la espera,
que no acaba,
llenándome de impaciencia.

I find it strange that a person would read book 1 and not enjoy it, but continue to purchase the rest in the series and give them a low rating.

If you didn't enjoy the first book you may decide to give the second ago but if you didn't enjoy that, why read the third and the fourth?
