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...

QUICK NOTE...Update: 1/2/19

The blog is slowly coming back on line. 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. 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 who knows. Hope you stay along for the ride!

STORYBOOK SUNDAY: Celebrating the power of pink...

HI guys and gals!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

We're celebrating another day of bookish fun with Storybook Sunday! For those not up to speed on the post, I read a lot of great storybooks and thought, why not give them their own day in the sun. Hence, Storybook Sunday! Feel free to join the fun and create a post on your own site with the same name. I'd love to see any linked up in the comments! Anywho...back to the matter at hand.

Today, Storybook Sunday is celebrating the power of pink!  That's right. We're joining millions of women around the world as they come together this weekend to commemorate the 2017 Women's March...and do it all over again.  What IS the Women's March?  Good question.  The best explanation I've seen is this...

We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families - recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.

If you've had the pleasure of joining one in person, do tell!  If not, never fear...there are many ways to participate in your own little way, including reading and sharing the first book in our pink duo today.  So, without further ado, I give you today's storybooks of choice...

While a lovely commemoration of the Women's March that took place round the world January 21, 2017, it's also a great reminder of just how loud our forces can be when used as one. It's a visual representation of not simply a pink hat traveling here, there, and everywhere, being used for a variety of purposes and with so much strength in its fibers to withstand anything and everything, but of the power of women and why equal rights in all aspects of life is not simply a desire...but a right.


Priscilla and the Pink Planet

Priscilla is a wonderful girl who simply has had too much of a good thing...the color pink! She sets out to find another color, ANY COLOR in her rosy hued world. When a potential find is made, she discovers there's more to this single colored land than meets the eye...but with a little eye-opening suggestion from Priscilla herself, perhaps the beauty of the color can be found anew.

This was another unexpected find at my library's second chance bookstore and boy am I ever glad I found it! It reminded me very much of a pink-hued Dr. Seuss story in both writing and illustrations. Our leading little lady is charming, as is her endeavor to brighten her world, plus the ingenuity she displays when push comes to shove was ace. A great story for fans of the color pink, or simply those looking for a tale that's...out of this world...and a great reminder that it takes MANY COLORS to make the world the truly beautiful place it is.
