It’s a quiet cold day today for some of us here in the UK… Not really a book day but more a day to curl up and just catching up on a bit of tele.
I have not been watching much of that recently – all my favourites are still sitting on my recorder to get through (Criminal Minds, House, Bones, Batman and a few other cartoons that I love). Cartoons make up a healthy portion of my tele diet and I couldn’t imagine it any other way.
I will be making a good effort to get through my back log of Inspector Gadget today… I love clumsy Inspector Gadget, super smart Penny and of course Brains (the dog)
Of course no good cartoon would be worth watching if it didn’t have a baddie, this comes in the guise of the M.A.D. and Dr Claw and is nefarious Cat.
The best bit of Inspector Gadget is the theme song – it generally stays in my head for days..
IN A WORD TODAY – Make time for the simply things..
In other news..
It’s all over the net, but I must give it a bump here as well – Please do remember it’s Read An Ebook Week this week March 6- 12th…
I still do read alot of paperback, but I really cannot imagine a world without eBooks now.
Lighter, easier to cart around, allows you to hide those suggestive covers and most importantly all you need is a pretty decent hard drive and you can have hundreds even thousands of eBooks at your finger tips.
Make sure you check what’s up with the event this week.
Romance ATC card.
I saw this being mentions ever at the Loose Ends blog and I followed the trail to see that a whole bunch of authors have joined up to produce Romance ATC cards…
As a paper crafter myself I am in full support of this – I love the ones that I have seen so far and from a marketing POV, they make really nifty handout.. Go look at them HERE – ROMANCE TRADING CARD
My one concern about the whole idea is that I hope in the rush to get these card made up, the spirit of which Trading Cards are all about is maintained.. especially the one about NOT SELLING them – Trading Cards are only to be traded or given out, not sold.
Until next week – keep on keeping on..

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them, and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....
That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book.
