I am excited. One of my favorite (if not my only favorite) romance author has a new medical romance coming out next week. I can’t wait to buy it. I’m such a greedy yet slow reader. I still have a dozen romance novels in my secret book drawer that I haven’t gotten to yet and I’ve had most of them for nearly two years!! This doesn’t even count the ones on my eReader and the ones I borrow from the library. When it comes to books, I’m like a kid in a toy store. I want to own them all. One day I’m going to take that cross country trek by busy or train, and I will be able to read all my books. One day….

Animal Snackers by Betsy Lewin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A fun poetry book about what animals eat. It is told in rhyming verse and can be used as a read aloud book for older children (1-3rd grade). Although it is categorized as poetry, the book’s facts are accurate—a non-fiction science book that can double as a story book.

“However, I must be honest and tell you the real secret behind the break up. While my issue with my former love is about size and also about quality (ask me about that another day!), it’s a deeper issue that burns my britches. What really bothers me about my ex, Victoria’s Secret, is that it even though it was about me, it was never really about me. From the fashion show to the ad campaigns, the purpose of displaying lingerie was not about me delighting in my own pleasures and feeling confident and empowered by the very articles I placed closest to my skin. Nor was it about me luxuriating in my femininity and choosing to own my sensuality as a woman without having to be overtly sexy or swing the other way to being puritanical and prudish. Nope!
It was, as it has been, about the male perspective. What does he want to see in lingerie? Who does he want to see it on? This limited perspective can be dangerous. I’m more than an object to be viewed and inspected, but a being of depth and dimension. A woman who dwells in the fullness of herself and deserves to be treated as such! Which is why I took my love, attention, and business to small boutiques, online retailers, and other stores that appreciated me for all that I was.”
