I heard those words more than once as a child. Actually, don’t tell my mom, but I could probably use someone saying that even now. I’d probably get to bed earlier and have a cleaner kitchen.
But the books – I’d miss the books!
Ah well, there are worse things, I suppose. Like boring you, my dear readers. And according to My Big Survey, you all are not big fans of my book reviews.
All right, all right. I can’t say I’m surprised. The teeny tiny number of comments was already a pretty good indication.
So I’ll lay off on the book reviews. I will probably still talk about books occasionally. And odds are good that I’ll still review some of the movies I see. As a matter of fact, stay tuned for a movie review this Saturday and my take on The Hole in our Gospel . . . just as soon as I manage to read it.
But I’ll try to come up with some more interesting posts for you. However, I will tell you about a couple book clubs. Just in case you want to talk books with someone else!
- She Reads – a new book club started by Proverbs 31 Ministries.
- Books, Blogs & Brownies – a virtual book club on Under Grace & Over Coffee
Now, one last note about My Big Survey: several of you said very sweet things. Unfortunately, in order to obtain objective data, the survey is anonymous. So I have no idea who said what. So, if you were trying to get on my good side, well, it didn’t quite work. But I’m honored that you took the time to answer my questions, and I’m touched that you enjoy reading Giving Up on Perfect. Thanks, everyone!
I heard that same thing growing up….I still LOVE to read. Can I just say that it was SUCH SUCH fun to put this blog with the sweet heart behind it. So thrilled to be a part of (in)courage with you.
I saw you and Hillary up late talking one night when I was looking down from the 6th floor and even said to holly and Steph…maybe I'll go join them. Now, I wish I had. :)
I love all the pictures of yourself as a kid! They are adorable! Did you raid your mom's house last time you were there or have you had those gems sitting without preservation around your house?
Jen, it was fun to meet you, too!
Hillary, my mom scanned a bunch of pictures for my birthday, and I copied them!
I too, love that photo of you curled up with your book. I wish my mom knew how to use a scanner. hee. hee. :)
I, of course, buttered you up with lots of sticky sweet compliments in the survey.
I can out myself and say I'm not a huge review fan in general — not that they don't come in handy sometimes — but I do love movie reviews, so feel free to keep them coming! It's your blog and you're the queen of it. Part of the blogging thing is not only keeping your audience entertained and happy and wanting more — there's the part where it's important to keep it real for yourself.
it was me–i said the super sweet things.
actually, i can't remember what i wrote! but since you said it was annonymous, you know, i thought i'd take the credit! haha!
