My Book Rating System

My book rating system is based on 5 stars. The book must be rated at least 3 stars for a review.

3 Stars: Good story, good plot, good writing.

4 Stars: I was wowed, but something about the story fell short of perfection.

5 Stars: I was either drooling, on the edge of my seat, or falling in love.

Friday Fun

For all the animal lovers out there....

If I Didn't Have A Dog...Or Cat......

I could walk barefoot around the yard in safety. 

My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and 


All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would 

be hair-free. 

When the doorbell rings, my home wouldn't sound 

like a kennel. 

When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without 

wading through all the fuzzy bodies who beat me there. 

I could sit on the couch and my bed any way I wanted, 
without having to take into consideration how much 
space several fur bodies need to get comfortable. 

I would have enough money, and no guilt, to go on 

a real vacation.

I would not be on a first-name basis with 6 veterinarians, 

as I put their yet unborn grandkids through college. 

The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: 

"out," "sit," "down", "come," "no," "stay," 
and "leave it ALONE. 

My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates and makeshift barriers.

I would not talk 'baby talk'. 'Eat your din din'. 'Yummy 

yummy for the tummy'.. 

My house would not look like a day care center, with toys everywhere. 

My pockets would not contain things like poop bags, treats 

and an extra leash. 

I would no longer have to spell the words B-A-L-L, 

W-A-L-K, T-R-E-A-T, O-U-T, G-O, R-I-D-E, S-U-P-P-E-R, 
And C-O-O-K-I-E.
I would not have as many leaves INSIDE my house as 

I would not look strangely at people who think having 

ONE dog/cat ties them down too much. 

I'd look forward to spring and the rainy season instead 

of dreading them as 'mud' season.
