I'm not published yet, nor am I an active reviewer (it's just something I'm not good at) so I'm probably not the best person to discuss all the ramification of this latest development but I've got to admit it makes me very uneasy. Can I get your thoughts on Amazon taking over Goodreads? Good or bad for writers? For readers?
I know in my circle of blog friends there is much excitement over the start of the A to Z Challenge on April 1. I'm not participating in the challenge but I try to visit as many A to Z bloggers as I can. Best of luck to all you brave participants.
For me, April 1 is exciting for a couple other reasons. First, it's opening day for my beloved Boston Red Sox. I'm really hoping I can make a prigrimage to Boston this summer and see a game at Fenway Park...or as we call it in my family, Mecca.
The other reason I'm excited about April 1 is I'm hosting author Carol Kilgore. Carol is coming by to share all her most intimate secrets. You won't want to miss this.
I can't do a post this morning without mentioning the significance of this day to me as a Christian. This is the day my Lord endured the torment of Crucifixion so that I might have eternal life. If you are a Christian, take time today to stop and remember.
Okay, don't forget to leave your thoughts on the Amazon/Goodreads news.
Have a very joyous and blessed Easter.
Joke of the Day:
Paddy opened the morning newspaper and was dumbfounded to read in the obituary column that he had died. He quickly phoned his best friend, Sean.
"Did you see the paper?" asked Paddy. "They say I died!!"
"Yes, I saw it!" replied Sean. "Where are ye callin' from?"
(Should I have called that one a groaner?)
