Fun book stuff

No book to report on today. I am reading "Mrs. Hudson and the Spirits Curse" for our October book club meeting. The theme is Sherlocke Holmes or other books set in that time period. Mrs. Hudson, of course, is Sherlock and Dr. Watson's housekeeper.

Saw these fun things about books, trivia etc. I thought I would share in the meanwhile. Goodreads has lots of these on their Face Book page.

Which fictional character would you like to get a cup of coffee with?

Off the top of my head, I would say Agatha Raisin. I would love to see the village and her cottage. And I think she is a hoot!

11 Simple Reasons the Print Book Doomsdayers are Wrong

I still have a collection of books. And I think I will always still purchase them. And I cannot resist grabbing a couple when people at work put them out for giveaway or at the book club. I never thought I would go to an e book but I was given one as a gift and I love it. It is easy to take anywhere, slips easily into a bag or purse or even a jacket. I can read while I am walking on a treadmill at the health club.  Big bonus. I have received several great, new books from new authors electronically. And I have gotten lots of books for free or next to nothing on Barnes and Noble, Amazon and Book Bub. Check that out!
