Pimpin' Current Obsessions + another Giveaway!

Today, my friends, we talk about…OBSESSIONS!I think I’m going to do a monthly post on obsessions.If you’re anything like me, you will sometimes find yourself completely obsessed with something at any given time.It could be a new series of books you were introduced to.It could be the next movie in a series you’re addicted to that’s coming out soon.It could be a new artist or a new song by your favorite artist that you’re listening to over and over again.Or, it could be a television series that someone pimped to you that has become your new obsession (*throws a non judgmental side-eye over to Hanging With Bells*). It could even be a food, a restaurant, a candy….any obsession is fair game to be discussed here.And, if you’re anything like me, these obsessions sometimes stay forever and sometimes run their course and go away…as something new comes along to take its place.That’s why I think a monthly feature would be good; to keep everyone up to date on what I’m currently obsessing over and…

My Very First Giveaway - Burning Up by Nalini Singh, Meljean Brook, Angela Knight & Virginia Kantra

I've decided to do my first giveaway; WOO HOO!  What prompted it, you ask?  Was it the fact that I reached 25 followers?  No.  Was it the fact that this is my big monumental FOURTH post? No. Was it the fact that I have a habit of buying books that I've entered contests for....before the contest winners have been announced?  DING DING DING!  Sigh.  I'm really going to need to start keeping track of all the contests I enter one of these days.  Until then, though, I'll just let my absent mindedness benefit someone else!  The details of the giveaway are below but first, let's discuss anthologies. What’s your feeling on book anthologies?I CURRENTLY find them to be a great resource for finding new authors to try out.There was a time, however, when I would buy an anthology just for the one story by the author I was familiar with and ONLY read the story by that author!That was back when I was very focused on the authors I knew and loved and wasn’t particularly interested in…

Pimpin' Book Boyfriends

So, I’ve learned that I may actually be one of the laziest bloggers to ever live.In my defense, I did have a triathlon that I was working towards that was taking up a lot of my free time (in case you missed it, I DID complete it on 9/26/10; WOOT!) and then, as a result of doing the bulk of my walk portion of the tri in the pouring rain, I got a nasty case of bronchitis that kept me out of work and laid out for several days in the week following the triathlon…but…yeahhhh…all of that happened a couple of weeks ago.There’s really no excuse for me not to have posted anything so I’ll just cop to being lazy and leave it at that.Moving on! Now that I’ve admitted to blogger laziness, I think its perfectly acceptable for me to steal today’s idea from someone else and then put YOU to work on MY blog (more about that later)!HA!Barnes and Noble has a question on their Facebook page today asking what book character you would most like to date.I’m amazed at how many people have named JUST one charac…
