Book Moles

We have a creature invading the house.  We believe it is a book mole.  You know, those small creatures that create little book mounds all over the place that seem to grow when no one is looking.  No one has actually seen the creature, but no one will claim the book piles as their own either.  So we either have a book mole, a reading ghost, or several avid readers who do not take the time to put their own books away and just keep adding to the already existing piles.  I am going to stick with the book mole.

Kite or Spool?

My cousin, recently introduced me to, and now I am slightly addicted to it.  If you are an aspiring novelist or an avid reader, you need to check out this sight.  Here, I will start you off with a little story that tugged at my heart and delighted my imaginations; Jem and Pearl.  So, I have to ask, are you a kite or a spool?

Upside, Downside, Downton Abbey

We recently discovered the beautiful, dramatic, heartfelt, secretive, and slightly scandalous series Downton Abbey.  A friend loaned us season one, which we devoured in less than a week, and we are now crawling our way up the library’s waiting list for season two.  I admit I am a junkie when it comes to British period dramas, and having to wait has been a good exercise in patience.  As we are only number five on the list, I will have to pacify myself with another great television series while I wait.  It does not have quite as much drama (and the main characters are orange), but Sesame Street should get me through till Downton Abbey arrives.
