Need Help finding a book to read? Fun Infographic!

I really never have trouble finding another book to read but perhaps you need some help.  Here is an Infographic from the Austin Public Library that I found on BookRiot.com.

fake-nyt-best-seller-list 2

Here is a fun site.  You enter your birthday into the box and then click, up comes the New York Times bestsellers for the week you were born. (pay no attention to the “25% off”, unless you are interested, it doesn’t affect your results.)

Yes, I did it.  No, I’m not going to tell you. Good grief, you already have enough hints as to my age.  Why ever are you so curious? lol

(That is a FAKE NYT Bestseller list from the book by Steve Healy, HOW I BECAME A FAMOUS NOVELIST.  I hope you are able to read the very funny titles.)

Sexy Man Tuesday- You know you love it!!!

It has been awhile folks.  Actually it has been a long while, but better now than never.  Here is some Sexy Man Tuesday eye candy from Contemporary Romance authors Jill Shalvis and Kristin Higgins.  Yup, I stole them right off of their Facebook pages.  So arrest me.  There was a need to bring sexy back and I grabbed it.  Enjoy!

Deet’s Life-Happy St Patrick’s Day

 

St Patrick's Day happyStPatricks

Today we are all a little bit Irish

Who was St. Patrick? He was the priest who drove the snakes out of Ireland.

St Patrick’s Day Irish Proverbs

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
An old Irish proverb

May those who love us, love us.
For those who don’t love us, May God turn their hearts.
And if God can’t turn their hearts, May he turn their ankles so we’ll know them by their limping!
An old Irish proverb

 

Laughter is brightest where food is best.
An old Irish proverb

 

As they say in Ireland:…. “may you be forty years in heaven before the devil knows you’re dead”.
An old Irish proverb

St Patrick's Day Irish-Stew

Recipe for Irish stew:
Get some meat, some potatoes and a lot of Guinness.
Drink all of the beer. Forget about the stew.

H-m-m Books I won’t be Reviewing any time soon

( I first posted this on November 28, 2011)

I can only read so many books so at some point I have to draw the line.  I rely on people like Jimmy Fallon to tell me some of the books I should just pass up.  Here is a short list:

1.  Make Your Own Sex Toys: 50 quick and easy do it yourself projects by Matt Pagett

(So many of the ideas are just impractical, read the reviews on Amazon.)

2. Latawnya The Naughty Horse Learns to Say “No” to Drugs by Silvia Scott Gibson , (I strongly encourage you to go to Amazon and read the reviews of this book.)

 

3. Dead Clients Don’t Pay: The Bodyguard’s Manual by Leroy Thompson

4. Remember Your Rubbers: Collectible Condom Containers by G.K. Elliot, George Goehring, Dennis O’Brien

5. How to live with a Huge Penis: Advice, Meditations and Wisdom for men who have too much (OMG- Oversized Male Genitalia) by Richard Jacob and Owen Thomas (another one with interesting reviews on Amazon)

(You are probably either horrified or still laughing.  I’m still zip lining in Costa Rica.  Friday will be an actual, real, current review, promise.)

Want to find a new author like your favorite author?

This is good, really good!  You go to this site, plug in an author’s name it shows you a “map” of names.  Now the authors’ names that are closest to your favorite are authors you might also like.  You can click on another name for more..and more…and even more.  I plugged in Julia Quinn and got Mary Balogh, Lisa Kleypas, and others who were definitely related.  I plugged in my fave vampire writer, D.B. Reynolds, and they hadn’t heard of her but let me add her to their suggestion page.  A “Thank You” shout out to flavorwire.com for steering me to this fun map.

Kindle NUCLEAR ENERGY book

The most expensive book on the Kindle list is NUCLEAR ENERGY by Landolt-Bornstein.  This book is on sale so you might want to hurry on over for the 20% savings.  It can be yours for $6,232.00.  No, that is not a typo, it is the most expensive book on Kindle.  But, I want you to go over to take a look at the reviews.  Amazon reviewers are some of the most talented writers on the planet.  Go on, take a look. 🙂
