Happy Holidays!

 

It's hard for me to believe it's almost been two years since I released Sacrificed (The Last Oracle Book 1) on Amazon. And because of you guys and all your support, the book still remains on a couple of Kindle Teen & YA Bestseller lists.

 

In celebration—and also because it's Christmas—Sacrificed is FREE on Kindle for the FIRST TIME EVER.

 

Please tell your friends. And your enemies. I mean, come on, it's Christmas!

 

The promo ends on 12/21/16. Here's the Amazon link: http://smarturl.it/wibbskindle

Needs vs Wants
Ravenspur: Rise of the Tudors - Conn Iggulden
Kingmaker: Broken Faith - Toby Clements

I have approximately 1,000 books that I haven't read. However, I had a great NEED for these two.....so I ordered them.

Bibliophile Problems

I opened up Overdrive with the intentions of carefully choosing my next audio book. How about the next Louise Penny book? Good idea, Samantha.

 

So, I look it up, and it is unavailable. This is why I end up listening to random stuff! Ugh. I will put it on hold.

 

That's funny. The hold button is not there. Instead I am offered the opportunity to go to checkouts.

 

Yes, the book is unavailable because I have it checked out.

Books are our Time Machines

"We all have our time machines, don't we. Those that take us back are memories...And those that carry us forward, are dreams." H.G. Wells

 

 

Books contain our memories, both imagined and real, subjective and collective, personal and general. They can not only show us our past but let us experience it through the intimate process of reading. It is not just history books, historical fiction or classic books that have this impact, but also one's own history of reading, the books you have lived with, grown up with. Whenever I open my little cupboard full of childhood books, it's like opening up a little time capsule. Between the pages I suddenly remember things I thought long forgotten, feelings I felt at the time I read them, my dreams and hopes. Books can take us back to that and they can also take us forward. They can literally take us into the future through their exploration of science and technology or sci-fi, but they also make us dream about our lives, what we'd like them to become, and of our collective futures.

 

Books are our time machines.
