Q:  Have you ever wished that there were official government bookish holidays, and that, by law, employers HAD to give their workers a paid day off? If so, what kind of bookish holiday would you like to have?

A: Um... it sounds like a GREAT idea, which I have not once ever in 40+ years pondered. Don't think it would ever be plausible, 'cause I cannot even think of why we need a bookish holiday or for what?! So the government and employers give us a paid day to read. Sounds ridiculous actually. I like reading but this question is too much for me. Sorry, not sorry.

  1. Yeah, I love books/reading but the idea of a bookish holiday is ludicrous. Plus, I'm too contrary to read when I'm expected to which I assume I would be on a bookish holiday. *shrug*

    I love that book opener! "It'd be so easy to kill you while you sleep." lol

  2. That is quite an opening! I haven't read this author before, but I know the name. This sounds like a fun read. I hope you are enjoying it!

    As much as I like the idea of devoting a day to reading, I am not sure a national holiday is necessary either. If it was, that'd mean no school and the chances of my reading all day would go out the window. Haha.

    Have a great weekend.

  4. There being a "bookish holiday" does sound a bit silly.

    Bloody Mary looks like a good read.

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
