9:39 am - Happy New Year!
Here's wishing you all a very Happy New Year and a fabulous 2016! :-D

I'm listening to Guy Harrington's "Happy New Year" as I type. Felt appropriate. ;-) And, that made me change the icon for this entry, too. ;-)

Not sure if katydid42 will pop in, but she did at some point in the not-too-distant past, so I wanted to make sure that I post.

Happy Birthday!!! I hope you are having a great day. :-D

7:03 am - A (slightly belated, but no less sincere) Birthday Wish!
I've spent the past three days setting up, running (I'm essentially co-chair), and cleaning up a book sale so I've been busy and exhausted by the end of each day - yesterday in particular when we ran it all day and then cleaned up for a few hours after. So, unfortunately, I forgot to post a birthday wish in a timely fashion. ;'(

In any case, here goes, on the theory that it's better late than never:

Happy Birthday to shirebound!!! I hope you had a fantastic birthday yesterday filled with people, animals and things you love and none of the stuff you don't! :-)

1:02 pm - Limerick No. 2771
I doubt I'll continue posting limericks regularly because in order to do that I need to keep up on news/events to write about and I haven't been consistently doing that. But, although I have not yet seen the last Hobbit film (we'll be waiting for the DVD or perhaps the cheap theater), I have heard Billy's song for the end credits and I love it. So today, I have this:

The last film ends with a song by Bill.
When I listen, it gives me a thrill.
It’s a lovely song – Sigh –
Titled: “The Last Goodbye”.
But to end feels quite bittersweet still.

4:17 pm - Limerick No. 2770 (I think)
I haven't posted a limerick in a looooooong time. From what I can tell the last was on 7/26/2011, except for a repeat one I posted for Thanksgiving after that. But, thanks to a comment by primula_baggins, I have this for you today:

Haven’t written in quite a long time
Anything based on a scheme of rhyme.
But a comment by Prim
Made me write on a whim,
Though I might be past my writing prime.

5:51 pm - The Princess Bride
Not that long ago, I saw that Cary Elwes published a book about making the movie The Princess Bride. So, I read that, which inspired me to reread the book by William Goldman, which I had read back in college, but enjoyed again. And, the edition I had this time was illustrated and included chapter one of "Buttercup's Baby" which is the sequel (though the rest isn't available ;-)). And, I also got the DVD and our whole family watched it together yesterday evening. It was a lot of fun. The kids had seen it before, but so long ago they didn't remember much.

And, other Princess Bride Fans out there?

[I consider it INCONCEIVABLE that there wouldn't be. LOL]

6:52 pm - Some favorite books from 2014
As I've been saying repeatedly for years, I am not good at picking only a small number of favorites, but I try to do it as top 5 by categories, so here goes (in no particular order within categories). [Keep in mind that if I did this on a different day - or a different hour - it would likely be different. ;-)]

FictionCollapse )

Non-FictionCollapse )

Young Adult FavoritesCollapse )

Classics FavoritesCollapse )

Two random books from a trilogy that I don"t know how to categorizeCollapse )
