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!

Celebrate GROUNDHUG DAY with Disney Hyperion!

Hi there!
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.

So...were your predictions made true this Friday?
Did you think the groundhog would see his shadow?
I mean, it was Groundhog Day and supposedly the little critter can tell us if Spring has sprung or we're in for a few more weeks of winter...which apparently, we are. *sigh*  Hmm...curious indeed, but if the friends in today's featured storybook title had anything to say about it, there'd be at least one groundhog that would't be seeing his bed for the foreseeable future.  Ladies and gents, join me as we shine a STORYBOOK SUNDAY spotlight on a title perfect for TWO holidays...the latter mentioned, and the upcoming Valentine's Day!  Yep, that's right!  A curious two for one, but you'll see what I mean in a moment.  Ready, set...READ!

First of all, MAD PROPS for the RIDICULOUSLY ADORABLE COVERART, let alone the interior images!  I mean, I was in love from the start!  How can you not be?  Look at Groundhog, trying to look all bothered and humbug while his woodland friends surround him with the warmth of the heart.  It's just SO DARN CUTE!  *ahem*  Anywho, back to the story...

Moose and friends are preparing for their upcoming Valentine's Day party, but it just won't be the same without everyone there. But how does one convince a groundhog to stay out of his den when he's seen his shadow? A most perplexing dilemma, but one these friends are more than up for...if groundhog will cooperate that is.

A charming story filled with heart, humor, and good intent, and overflowing with cheerful illustrations that'll bring a smile to your face.  It reminds us that both holidays have their time and place, but friendship is for all seasons.

I wanted to get this book, but I was completely swamped when they sent out the ARCs and had to turn it down. It looks so cute! I'll have to get it out of the library. Glad you enjoyed it!
