Following bloggers is very personal. The blogs I read regularly are the ones in which I feel some sort of personal connection to the content or the blogger's point of view. That means they're usually book related. So, for some Friday Fun, I'd like to introduce you to some of my favorite book bloggers.
You know the song "To All the Girls I've Loved Before"? The song that goes ... "who travel in and out my door...I dedicate this song." Change "girl" to "books" and that is what today's blog is about. To all the books I've loved before.
I love books, like a lot. Enough that I wrote one. (see The Travelers). Therefore, it's probably not surprising that I read and follow a lot of book-related sites and blogs. Blogs are a little tricky. I like so many great ones. That list would be very long and I may tackle compiling that some day soon. In the meantime, since it's Friday, I'll do a Friday 5 of my 5 Favorite Book Websites.
I recently went to the San Francisco ballet and wrote a blog about it. What I didn't mention in that blog was that right after the ballet ended, we headed over to a protest across the street. And in the sea of black ink on poster board, I realized something important was missing...
My husband and daughter have matching t-shirts about science. (So cute and nerdy.) Their t-shirts inspired today's t-shirt Tuesday blog topic: Did any science fiction books get it right or make predictions that came true?
Day 3 of our visit to San Francisco, the last full day here. Like any good day, it all started with and ended with food, with a little dance and literature between.
If you're a reader or a writer or a watcher of theater or of television. Even if you like music, then you like stories. And, you know that stories can take many forms. As a writer (see The Travelers), obviously I like the written word. But I can fully appreciate that a story doesn't need to be made of up letters on paper, which is one of the reasons I like all types of art forms, including the ballet. And, yesterday, my best friend took my daughter and I to see one of the best in the country - the San Francisco ballet.
When I visited New York City in December, I took my book, The Travelers, along for some photo ops. No, the fact that people looked at me like a crazy person as I propped up a book in windows, subway stations and restaurants didn't discourage me from doing it again in a new location, this time San Francisco!
