Good morning! I am sipping away at my first cup of coffee this morning. I mentioned yesterday during the morning meandering about a book review format that I was excited to try out. I did that yesterday starting with my review of Worst Case.
The idea was to make the reviews have a bit more of my personality, a bit of “Book Journey, One persons journey through books and coffee.” So that is what I did. I actually had fun doing it. I added:
- Book Journey traveled to: ______________________
- some type of coffee related tip about the area the book is about
- page number or CD count
- Cover thoughts
On my left sidebar you will see a new “Where Have I Been?” map and that I am still working on but it is so far a lot of fun. On this map that I am making through Google Maps I am charting out where the books I have read this year are from. What I am finding most interesting about that is how many books I have read this year that are set out of the US. I have read books centered around London, England, Italy, South Africa… (I have a lot more to enter yet too)
If you click on the link to see the map zoom it out by using the little bar on the left side of the map and clicking the minus sign. I have no idea why when you enter it is fully zoomed in so you see nothing. If you click on the blue pegs, it pops up with the book cover, title, and links back to my review.
So I am off to prepare for my day. I have a meeting at 8:30 am across town, a recap of the home show we had a month ago. I am excited to hear how it went overall. Then I am in my office for the afternoon and probably gym with my friend Heidi after that and tonight, I am making BLT’s and we are watching SURVIVOR!
