   I just finished Original Sin by Allison Brennan.  There were 2 words that I wasn't familiar with.  But when I went to look them up there were no definitions for these words.  Am thinking that they were just part of the story and the reader was to interpret, which I will do now.
  Conoscenza--Book of spells
  arca--human container of demons.....sacrifice
Free Avatars
  I just read one of morning subscribed newsletter from Rundpinne Blog (http://www.rundpinne.com/) and she posted a picture of many, many books of hers.  I gasped when I saw the piles (lol).  So my question is... and hopefully experienced bloggers will share with me their knowledge and tricks of the trade.  I recently added my name to accept requests for reviews.  I am enjoying every facet of this world of book blogging.  However, I am a little behind in reading and getting a little anxious as I have 7 books waiting to be read and reviewed.  How do you catch up when activities of daily living still need to be done, do authors/publishers have a time limit, do you post about books before you read them (ex: give the bookjacket synopsis when you receive each book or do you post about the book  when done reading/reviewing.?  Any comments, suggestions, tips would be appreciated.
MY Photobucket JOURNEY
Well...today is here and I am having a lot of anxiety.  Not knowing is so very hard.  Hopefully I will get some answers today but then if I do, I will have to make some very big decisions and only I can do that.  And to make matters even harder, hubby isn't going with me.  He is so torn about today but he has a very high level meeting that he could not get out of.  I am lucky to be blessed with a very good friend.  When I told her the situation she got out her appointment book, she is a nail technician, crossed off the day and then called her part-time job and asked to be taken off the schedule.  The saying goes that God gives us angels and they are called friends.  Since we are driving to another state for this appoinment we are planning to make it a "girl's day".  And she will have pen and steno pad in hand to let hubby know everything that happens.  Sorry to those that are reading this because I am rambling which I tend to do, especially when "nervous".  To my BFF..Thank You

I hope all goes well today.

Before I accept a book for review, I ask what the expectations are as far as deadlines go.

Thanks for sharing your words today!

Thank you for the kind words. Vicki at Reading At The Beach told me when I started blogging that book bloggers were the nicest people and she was right. Thank you again for the caring words.

I hate when I can't find the definition of a word. Maybe it was just made up. Or you can just make up your own definition! {smile}

I signed up for your e-mail so let's see if I get any. The email gets sent out when you make a new post (a copy of the post gets mailed). I'll let you know when I get something. Oh and I'm still not reading any books yet. Been on these pain killers since Monday night - can't concentrate to well. hehehe - want some! lol Later.
