Really Random Tuesday














Pictured are the reading glasses (and the matching case!) I won from Reading Glasses Shopper on Natalie's lovely blog, The Book Inn. Thank you very much, Reading Glasses Shopper and Natalie! They arrived quickly and are very cute.



Author Daniel A. Rabuzzi asked me to let my readers know that his book, The Choir Boats, illustrated by his wife Deborah A. Mills, published in 2009, is featured as Wowio's July Book of the Month. During July 2010 only, a free e-book version of The Choir Boats is available. While I don't usually read this genre, YA fantasy, the book sounds captivating, and I peeked at some of the wonderful illustrations.










What does this Really Random Tuesday post need to be complete? How about a few writer quotes from Random Quotations?

"Literature is strewn with the wreckage of men who have minded beyond reason the opinions of others."
~Virginia Woolf

"Truth is always exciting. Speak it, then, Life is dull without it."

~Pearl S. Buck


"The woman whose behavior indicates that she will make a scene if she is told the truth asks to be deceived."
~Elizabeth Jenkins

  11. I love your quotes, especially the last! How true!

    I'm constantly in need of 'cheaters' (reading glasses over my contacts). It's gotten to the point where if I know I have serious reading to do? I'll just take out my contacts altogether. The problem is, then I can't see far! Ah, the trials of being almost 50. ;)

  13. ds, thanks! I'm enjoying the glasses.

    Bellezza, I wear contacts, too, and use the reading glasses as cheaters also. I never heard that term before. Hopefully, the glasses will help reduce my embarrassing typos!

    Mel, there are a lot of really incisive quotes online.

    Thanks for your visits!
