Making The Rounds

Be sure to stop by Romancing the Blog today, as our own lovely Uruguayan diva, Rosario, has a very interesting column up.

Alison Kent has a couple of goodies - first a column by guest blogger, Megan Hart and a chance to win free books! What's not to love about that?

Ellen Fisher's husband passed away this week. No one should die from cancer, but especially a 40-year-old man with a lovely wife and four young children. I literally gasped when I got the news through one of my e-mail loops yesterday. My heart just bleeds for her.

In much happier news - I got a new computer at work yesterday! It's pleasure overload here. You have no idea the hunk of crap they had me working on. My computer now operates at a normal speed and I have a flat screen, flat panel monitor! The Internet has never looked so good.

I also got my Amazon order in this weekend. I finally ordered Sarah McCarty's Promises trilogy (although I hear more books in this series are planned). I know, it's shocking I didn't own these before now. They're smutty and they're westerns! It's the best of both worlds people! Of course, who the heck knows when I'll actually get to reading them. I also finally ordered my own copy of The Crossroads Cafe by Deborah Smith. I read a library copy and it ended up being a keeper. I went on a severe Deb Smith buying binge afterwards but like an idiot I forgot to order TCC. Duh. Problem solved now.

And in case anyone is wondering, I'm in a horrible slump. It's all me, and not the book I'm reading (which I'm enjoying). I just am not reading. Anything. Not even cereal boxes. I've discovered that the only way to get past this is to "force myself" to sit and pick up the book. Otherwise I'll just keep not reading and really that's too horrifying to think about.

Oooo, I love being a lovely diva! Does this mean the column compensates for me having two JR Ward posts in a row in my blog? ;-)

Wendy, so sorry about the slump. That sucks. I don't think you will be sorry about the McCarty books. I sure like them.

Did you see at Ames site that she is doing widow week? Nath guest reviewed two of Deborah Smith's books and will be reviewing Crossroads Cafe on her own site.

Final note, I checked out Ellen Fisher's site. What a sad story!!

Yes Rosario, all is forgiven LOL
