Check out this read on Amazon.
I'm still on this one. It's 703 pages and I'm almost halfway through. Having 3 jobs really gets in the way of reading sometimes.....
I'm posting early due to work, but the IG56 will be added after work tonight.
Here is my snippet from page 296 on my kindle, about 42%...

Audio books vs Ebook? If the world stopped printing books which would you prefer between the two?
A: Ebook, definitely. I get distracted too easily for audio books.

  3. I love audiobooks but can only listen when I am doing something mindless like computer games or puzzles, or walking the dog. My book was Where the Crawdads Sing

    I prefer eBooks over audiobooks.

  6. I agree with you about ebooks vs. audio. Definitely ebooks for me for the same reason. I get distracted easily. Have a great weekend!

  7. That cover is fabulous. And such a long book. I love that once in a while. Sounds like he has a decision to make.
    Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful weekend, Freda:)

  8. Love the cover, but that's a lot of pages. It would take me months to get through it! Hope you enjoy the read.
    Happy Friday!

  10. I don't know how you do it with three jobs. I can see how reading time would be precious in that case. I haven't read anything by Maas before, but I have heard great things about her books.

    My choice would be e-books too. I do enjoy audiobooks, but they don't quite fit into my life right now the way they do for others. I understand the distraction issue--that's true for me too.

    Have a great weekend.

  11. I loved Empire of Storms... Except the ending. If I'd known about the ending, I'd have waited until KoA was out before reading it, lol. Of course, now I have KoA, I'm too scared to read it.
    Whoever said readers were logical people?!

  12. I used to get distracted when listening to audio books, too, but since I started knitting I can do both. I listen as much as I read these days.

RATED PG
86 minutes

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
