Giveaway: Flashback by Dan Simmons

The United States is near total collapse. But 87% of the population doesn't care: they're addicted to flashback, a drug that allows its users to re-experience the best moments of their lives. After ex-detective Nick Bottom's wife died in a car accident, he went under the flash to be with her; he's lost his job, his teenage son, and his livelihood as a result.
Nick may be a lost soul but he's still a good cop, so he is hired to investigate the murder of a top governmental advisor's son. This flashback-addict becomes the one man who may be able to change the course of an entire nation turning away from the future to live in the past.
A provocative novel set in a future that seems scarily possible, FLASHBACK proves why Dan Simmons is one of our most exciting and versatile writers.

  1. What comes to my mind is the time right after hubby and I got married. We lived in a 3 story condo and hubby was turning out the lights and heading up the stairs at bedtime. He misjudged the stairway location in the dark, and actually fell down the basement stairs instead of going up. Thankfully, he didn't get hurt, but we have laughed about it many times over the years. Those were the good old days!

    Thanks for a great giveaway, please count me in.

  3. One that my husband and I were just talking about the other day. While on the Oregon coast we climbed down a very rocky path to get closer to the ocean. While sitting on the rocks with the waves crashing just a few feet away a sea lion surfaced, he did an actual double take when he saw the humans on the rocks.

  13. Sounds like a thrilling read.

    Funny Flashback? Oh yeah. Many!

    I gotta say, though, I love it when I remember my daughter as a toddler singing (while rocking back and forth) "I'm a Saliva, I'm gonna make it!" (original song is Destiny's Child "I'm a Survivor")

    Oooh, fun! Okay, here is my flashback (weird but true): One halloween I was late coming home from work, and - as usual - had left my apt back door unlocked. Well, by the time I'd got up the stairs to my apt I had to go *pee* really, really bad lol
    So there I am, I go into my dark bathroom, proceed to sit down, when next to the wall beside me comes this hideous sound and two huge glowing eyes staring at me out of the dark.
    One of my best friends had punked my bathroom with a huge, motion sensored fake owl right beside the toiled - hidden next to the wall!!! I about had a heart attack lol

  19. A funny flashback ... hmm. We love to recall something my daughter would say when she was little and learning the alphabet. She would say "ABCDEFGHIJK and a little pea..." It was so cute, as that is what she heard and interpreted as the alphabet. We still like to razz her about it sometimes!

  20. I am a GFC follower. Thanks for the contest.

  21. Thank you Freda! I look forward to reading Flashback!

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
