Thursday Feature: “Let’s Talk Books” — A Fun Little Exercise

Hello to all my friends and followers! It’s been a busy, stressful day, and I just looked up at the clock and realized that Thursday is half gone, and Friday will be here in a matter of hours.

As a writer, I’m always on the lookout for story starters. For this week, I would like you to turn to page 168 in the current book you’re reading, and copy a complete sentence from the 9th line. Don’t reveal the title, just the sentence.  You need only share one sentence. By the way, the more sentences I receive, the better, so everyone please share, and tell your friends about my blog.  Now, with whatever sentences I receive by November 7, 2019, I’ll work them into a short story as my gift to you for following my blog which I will post on November 19, 2019. Sound like fun?

Hi and welcome to my Amazon Affiliate Page. I dedicate this page to the Amazon.com shopper. I will share the books and products I have purchased through Amazon.com. over nearly two decades of being a regular shopper, browsing/shopping daily. To best serve my visitors, please provide me with feedback by answering the poll below.

With Christmas 2019 only four weeks away, I invite you to do your shopping right from this page. I’m certain you will find great purchases sure to please any gift recipient. And speaking of gifts, don’t know what to buy for that “hard to buy for relative, friend, or co-worker?” Gift cards are a great gift that are appreciated.

My most recent purchase was a Kindle Fire Tablet. Easier for me to hold with all the functionality of a laptop and living on a tight budget, it was a perfect choice for me. Currently, I have approximately 200 books loaded!!!

Recently, I came across a talk show while eating lunch, and I was hooked. The host,  Mel Robbins, is a life coach.  After watching the show, I jumped on Amazon.com to find her book, The 5 Second Rule. Purchased it and when it arrived, read it in one evening. For me, a life-changing experience. So that being said, if you find yourself in a rut in any aspect of your life and you’re tired of being in said rut, give this book a read.  You won’t be disappointed!!!!

I have been a soda pop consumer for many, many years. And, not the sugar free variety!! LOL. Wanting to change my life and attempt to get away from the sugary drink addiction and improve my overall appearance and health, I have replaced it with Sparkling Ice+Caffeine (Black Raspberry). It is pricy, but for me the sacrifice of something else to get this product has been beneficial.  At this writing I have almost beaten this addiction and already feel better physically and have more energy.
