Blog All About It Challenge ~ February 2018


The second prompt of this challenge is RED.   RED would be my second favorite color (purple nudges it out).  I discovered years ago that RED has the ability to affect people by ‘energizing’ them.  And, guess what my favorite color is to wear to the office on Mondays?  Yep… must need extra energy then.

But, anyhoot, that’s off point.  Here’s what I’ve got for you this month.

I’ve taken some editorial liberty and have made the monthly challenge prompt RE(a)D to suit my purposes.  But not entirely!  See, I’ve decided to go with ‘books I’ve RE(a)D with RED covers for my theme this month.  Clever, yeah?  Hehe!

So, I was planning to make this neat, cool book tree pile of books with red covers and realized fairly early in the game that I might not have the engineering skills or materials necessary for that one.  Books of all sizes, sure.  But enough books for a decent ‘tree’?  Nope.  I guess RED covers are a minority on my shelves.

Next, I considered bookspine poetry with my meager RED book pile… but… see… *cough* was too lazy.

So, I went with just a nice display of my RE(a)D RED books.  We have our Patricia Briggs, JR Ward, Diana Gabaldon, Kristoff & Kauffman, Stephanie Barron, Mark Lawrence, Jeannie Lin, and Deanna Raybourn for a nice variety of fiction.

RE(a)D any of these or other books by the authors?  Got a favorite book with RED book cover?  Do Tell!

Oh, and I’ll leave you with a snazzy pic of my RED blanket, RED phone playing my current audiobook, Year One by Nora Roberts, and an ‘about-to-be-opened’ RED box of Whitman’s Christmas chocolates.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
