Weekly Geeks 2009-17: Bookmarks
I use what ever scrap I can find to mark the page I was last on but I really do love the free ones from the library. I also snagged a few from the reading promotion* at the middle school. I now have one that features the Red Sox’ Jason Varitek and Wally and another one from the — wait a minute! It’s not in the book I was reading. Where did I put it? Nope, not at the bottom of the bag… oh well.
This is why I don’t use fancy bookmarks.
Weekly Geeks 2009-18: Hometown
I am too lazy, busy, scattered, distracted to get myself to the local library or the Hallmark store that has a shelf of books for sale – I bet someone would be able to tell me if we have any local authors! I actually, I should know one but can’t seem to find what I’m looking for when I google. So… I have no one to suggest as a local author from my town!
However, I can tell you about an author that hails from Southeast Massachusetts, specifically South Shore: Claire Cook who wrote Must Love Dogs – which I’ve read (I liked it), a few others that seem to be of the great-beach-reads category and has a new one out called The Wildwater Walking Club. She lives a few towns over but I have yet to attend any of her events – I want to! I just haven’t…. I’m on her email list and she always has fun promotions and contests for her new releases.
