Sunday Salon – March 25, 2012

Spam, Spam, Go Away!

I am very pleased to have author D. E. Meredith here today with a guest post to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

Today the author shares her personal story here, and gives us a glimpse into what […]

The Stephen King Project

The Stephen King Project

Have you seen this project? I am a huge Stephen King fan – I’ve read almost every early book he’s written…but I admit, I have missed quite a few of his later efforts (although I have the books in my stacks!). Kathleen at Boarding In My Forties and Natalie at Coffee and a Book Chick […]

11/22/63 – Book Review

I knew where I was; Lisbon Falls, Maine, deep in the heart of Androscoggin County. The real question was when I was. – from 11/22/63, page 31 – Jake Epping is thirty-five years old, a high school teacher living in Maine in the year 2011. Jake makes a little extra money teaching GED classes and […]
