My Summer Affair...

So this summer I am having an affair with Pete Hautman! Well not literally, but "literary"!!! 

So far I have read:

Sweet Blood
Stone Cold
Mrs. Millions
Hole In The Sky
Mr. Was
The Prop

 I think there may be a few more but I can't remember right off the top of my head. Feel free to browse my Goodreads account. Pete Hautman's web site is a great place to visit but his blog cracks me up (be sure to click on everything and anything). I don't know what it is about his books that keep my nose in the pages. Maybe because his characters seem so real or maybe because there is no preaching or talking down, just pure good story telling. It doesn't even have to go anywhere, because the telling and the journey is the important part. I would love to hear him read one of his books out loud. I have read his adult books and his young adult books and both are great.


 So Pete, I will raise my glass, (well really my Cappuccino Blast from Baskin Robbin's Ice Cream Store) here's to you, may your fingers stay limber and arthritis free on the keyboard and your mind fresh and ears open to new ideas!!!

Hey Lady! I love that you raise chickens too! I love your silkie on your blog header, very pretty!!! I have some silkies too and I love them so! A clutch is a small oblong or rectangle purse that usually has beads or seqins on it and comes in any color. Just google clutch and you should see some pictures. Hope you can join in on the fun friend!! Happy weekend!!

I need to get my head out of the sand and read this guy...his books sound interesting, and look at that sweet ornery smile of his.
I read your comment on Coloradocasters...(I love calling him Colorado for short, makes me feel like John Wayne!) And stumbled over here, your answered question nearly made me shoot coffee out my nose, your cool innovations with whatever you feel like tackling, Your chickens! growing your own food, ah- I'm hooked.
Take care-

Impressive girl! How do you find time to read all those books? I really need to retire!

Reading truly is a dying art. I admire your literary discipline, patience and determination. Some affairs are less scandalous than others it seems and thank you for sharing this one.

Love your garden! Maybe I'll be able to plant a winter garden? Oh, well, there is always next year. Can't beat great books. Isn't it terrific when you find an author you love. Oh, yeah!

Hi there,
Thanks, I'm glad to be back!!
If I didn't have so many crowns to make I would love to have the time to read all of these wonderful books that I have on hold. I will slowly get to them. I love to see that people enjoy reading.
Hope you have a wonderful week,
