I’m participating in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon this Saturday, the 18th. However, for me it will be more like a 15-17 hour readathon. I don’t stay up late on Saturday night because it’s very worshipful to fall asleep in church on Sunday morning. So, I’m planning to be reading from 7:00 a.m. on Saturday morning […]

Write it down today, while the thought is fresh.” I grok this post from Here in the Bonny Glen. ************ Cara at Little Did She Know: “I would like to meet and marry someone lovely, but truly, I am seeking a companion with which to do life, someone to […]

Classic Books Become London Benches. I want one of these to go in my front yard. Be thinking about being a CYBILS judge. The call for judges will open on August 18th and close September 5th. You can ask to be a panelist (read LOTS of books and narrow down nominees to finalist list) or […]

Quoting . . .

Will Duquette at Patheos: “Facebook is a good servant but a poor master. I’ve got to learn to keep it in its place.” From wordsmith.org: “I think I am a verb instead of a personal pronoun. A verb is anything that signifies to be; to do; to suffer. I signify all three.” ~Ulysses S. Grant […]

Lewis Lewis is the best writer and the most profound thinker of the three, the one whose work will stand the test of time. I predict that Mere Christianity, […]

What does the fox say? Thanks, Bill. I got my horse/fox laugh for the day. I love this poem by one of my favorite bloggers: On the porch with Liza. It’s amazing to me how hung up and mixed up we can be about skin color and personal appearance, and it’s not just black and […]
