Good riddance to these 2012 commercials!

Unfortunately there is no guarantee, my least favorite commercials could follow me into the New Year, 2013 — hopefully not though. Hopefully, these companies will want to update their message, create a new promotion to entice consumers to try their products — one could only hope. . . . This is one commercial that drove my husband crazy — weeeeeeee — he would actually turn down the sound so as not to hear the pig’s screeching LOL!

PW’s Barbara Vey & team list their Favorite Books of 2012

Thanks to Barbara & Team I thought you’d enjoy seeing their list of bests — we’d love to hear your favorites too, love to hear your recommendations! There are best of lists popping up all over. Best books, best movies, best fashions and more than enough worst lists, but we won’t go there. Rather than name “Best Books,” we’re going with the WW Ladies favorite reads of 2012. Now this doesn’t mean the book had to be published in 2012, it just means it had to be read in 2012. In their emails to me, many lamented the fact that they could pick just one and it was a very difficult decision. Kym absolutely couldn’t make up her mind. Regardless, [...]

The best romances of 2012, IMO

There’s one thing about best of lists, they are the best of someone’s opinion . . . . in most cases. Some lists are chosen by sales, number of books sold, but since we’ve no access to industry information of that sort we have to compile our own list, based on what we’ve read. So before the New Year begins offering us more new books to read, R@R decided to list, based on lists, what we thought were the best of romances for 2012. After reviewing many bestseller lists for 2012, we highlighted and compiled what we thought would have been our bests . . . so I guess we’re choosing, the best of their bests? All of this posturing [...]

Patriots or Giants – VOTE here + Guest Post – Plans for reading + giveaway!

Plans for reading By Inga Kupp-Silberg As usual for the beginning of a new year, many people make plans for the coming year. So have I. I have a plan for 2012 – read as many books as possible during 2012. Sounds easy, right?!! To be more specific, my exact aim for 2012 is to read 101 books which would be 26 more books compared to last year. Besides just a numerical target I have set for me, I promised to myself that out of these 101 books I will read at least 25 books what I had on my to-be-read-list from last year. I am an emotional and impulsive customer in the book store and it does not matter [...]
