About This Blog

To be honest, book review blogs abound on the internet. A recent Bing search for “Book Review Blogs” netted almost 250,000 hits! That’s a lot of blogs! So what could I do to make mine different? What would make it stand out more?

I started thinking about it the other night and then it hit me. I have always been a huge fan of book series. Whether it was the obvious one, (The Black Stallion by Walter Farley) or a not so obvious (Midnight Rainbow by Linda Howard) I love to read book series. More than that, I love series where characters from one book show up in another book. Of course, after starting to read The Lord of the Rings with book 2, I try my best to always start at the beginning!

I do have to warn you, my taste in reading material can vary quite widely. šŸ˜œ Although, in looking at my library, my tastes tend to run to Age-Play, Paranormal or Sci-Fi Romances. Although, here of late I’ve also started reading series that focus on Veterans. Folks, I sincerely hope you find something you like here!

BTW, did you figure out the two series I mentioned earlier? All of the first series has ā€œBlack Stallionā€ in the title. In the second series, a character from one book shows up in the next.

Despite what you may think, it takes a little bit more than just a big pot and some canning jars to start canning. Ā Join me as I go over some of the necessary equipment for canning.
