After an evening walk with the hub, I sat down at my computer to think about what I was going to blog about for B in today's A to Z challenge. Naturally, I logged onto Facebook first because I love to procrastinate. So, the first thing I see on my feed is a post by my sister-in-law. She just got back from a trip to Portland and she got to shop at Powell's bookstore. I've never been there, but I hear it's amazing and the store takes up a whole city block. She bought several new books with real paper and there they are up there. One of them is for me. Can you guess which one it is? First person to guess correctly will get to choose my topic for "D." And no, it can't be death.
I love books. I've been sort of a non-fiction fanatic for the past several years, but recently I went totally crazy and read the first Harry Potter book. I know, I know. I'm a little late to the JK Rowling is a goddess party. Well, my son was reading it and loving it and I wanted to be able to talk about it with him. Now I'm like a totally pushy parent telling him to hurry up and finish the dang second book so I can read it too. Like his mom, he's easily distracted and he has three books that he's reading at the same time. What can I say? It was the Scholastic book fair at his school last week and you can't just buy one!
So, speaking of books, I'm going to see a somewhat famous writer tonight. And I'll have this person sign my dog-eared book that's about writing and I've had it for ages. If you can guess who this writer is, I'll let you choose my "G" topic. Here's a hint. The title of the book would totally work for today's blog post.
This is totally random, but did you know that April is National Poetry Month?
Okay, my fellow blogging peeps, write on!
