Award ceremony – January 2019.

Here we are again.

Sooner than we thought we would.

It is the end of January.

We have discussed in prior posts and comments how time flies, but I’m just marveling how having a calendar does nothing to help. You would think that having one and being able to look at one to see how much time we have would prepare us. But it does not. At least not me.

So live, because who knows when your calendar will run out. And you will not see it coming, since you never look at it anyway.

Thank you to all who are reading this for entering a new year with me. For staying on this crazy blogging bus.

And a special THANK YOU to those who nominated me. You will see that some of the tags are a bit outdated, but it is because I was busy around the Christmas season, but yet, I did not want to let those go to waste.

So today we throwback to… the Christmas season a little bit. Because we all want it to come back. Do we not?

  2. Wow. I really enjoyed reading this one. ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Congratulations on your awards and thanks for nominating me.

    Now, let’s answer your questions.

    What makes you choose a book to read?
    An exciting story plot that’s not clichรฉ.

    What makes you keep reading with fervor a book you started?

    The characters (and the plot). If I’ve bonded with the characters, I would keep reading the book with great enthusiasm, except in a case I would elaborate on in my answer number to your next question.

    What makes you ditch a book you started reading?
    Complex vocabulary. Who wouldn’t love a book that has a good plot and is written in Hemingway’s style? If a book seems like a comprehensive chemistry textbook, I would stop reading it, no matter how intriguing the characters are.

    Funny/ weird question: What are you wearing?

    Multicoloured T-shirt (Blue and grey are the dominant colours) and grey knickers. I’m about to strip down to just a singlet and my boxers. The weather is soooooo hot! ๐Ÿ˜”

    1. It’s been cooler here the past few days, so I can’t wait for warmer weather.

      Thanks for answering. I see a lot of people have similar answers. Very interesting. I didn’t think a properly developed character was so important. To me, the plot is the main thing.

  3. Goldie, as always, you crack me up. This was a fun post, and many many thanks for my nomination as well. I loved the golden goose. That was perfect for me and “A Jeanne in the Kitchen”. There are plenty of days when that fells like the only thing I have time for. You can find me at ajeanneinthekitchen.com. Please feel free to stop by and say hi. Let me make you dinner, even if only virtually.

    What makes you choose a book to read?
    The story line. If it intrigues me and/or tickles my fancy, I read it.

    What makes you keep reading with fervor a book you started?
    The book, plot, story and or characters have to hold my interest.

    What makes you ditch a book you started reading?
    Very rarely do I not finish a book once I’ve started it, regardless of how bad I think it is. I keep thinking something has to get better, often times to find out I was wrong. Maybe it is a little OCD about finishing what I start and not being a quitter after starting something. I like to see things through to the finish.

    Funny/ weird question: What are you wearing?
    I am in wearing yoga pants, my CUDA team T-shirt and a grey pawprint sweatshirt.

    Please be as detailed as you wish.

    1. I don’t often put a book down, either. Like you, I expect it to get better. But I’ve learned that most often than not, it doesn’t. So once I feel like dropping it, I give it one more chance. After that, I’m allowed to drop it if it doesn’t meet my expectations.

      I hope the sweatshirt is keeping you warm and you are recovering speedily.

  4. Hahah, this is wonderful.
    You gave me a pug! I will treat him like a princess!

    You seem to know your readers. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here are also my answers to the questions:

    1. What makes you choose a book to read?
    Bizarre murders.

    2. What makes you keep reading with fervor a book you started?
    The book needs to be a page turner, but it also depends on the location I am.
    I like reading on the beach, plane or car. At home, not so much.

    3. What makes you ditch a book you started reading?
    I guess that never really happened. I am always too curious about who commited the crime!

    4. Funny/ weird question: What are you wearing?
    Maple leaves PJ pants and an aubergine colored shirt.
