Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...

So, QUICK NOTE...blog is pretty much shut down at the moment. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. So, reading and blogging (as much as I adore it) have to take a back burner. My apologies to any tours or promised review dates through the end of the year. As of Nov. 30, 2018, I've finally reached a stage in all this chaos that I feel that I can try to take a few baby steps back into the blogging world. A post here, a post there, and next year...who knows. Stay tuned...

The Roving Reader

Now how's this for a nifty bookish gift!
From the package description, you roll the dice and create a quick short story based off what the dice dictate.  Can we say "creativity booster"?

We actually used a similar idea to get the creative juices flowing in our 6 to 7 year old pupils. If only I'd known there was a potential book in it.

Petty Witter: Really? Cool! See...your creative side is showing....now you just have to find a way to "bottle" it. ^_^

Juju: *nods* ^_^

How cool is that?! I love this idea! Especially for classroom settings I think this could be really helpful. Kids could roll the dice and then use their answers to create stories to write. Great find!
