Books and Other Random Thoughts

You all are so sweet to wade through my jumbled and scattered thoughts here in Bloggy World. You have no idea how much I appreciate that. But you’ll be happy to know that I can manage to string together some coherent sentences and actually get them in print — really, I can!!! Here’s proof:

You know the economy has tanked and everybody’s scrimping and saving wherever they can, right? You know folks are cutting back and slashing expenses, right? And you know that the book-publishing industry — like music and movies — is suffering. Then you’ll be as surprised as I was when you find out that there’s one category of books that’s seen an incredible increase in sales. And it’s no wonder — I’ll bet you’re like me and cannot wander past that section in your local bookstore without stopping and checking it out.

And you know what they say when you first start trying to sell your house: Your No. 1 top-priority chore is to declutter. But be careful, because sometimes you end up with more stuff than when you started!

Speaking of family efficiency, how are you at packing? I thought I was pretty good. I had a system based on my method of household organization and it worked for years … until I out-organized myself.

  1. I don’t see your thoughts as jumbled and scattered. I see them as what a good blog should be…interesting and fun stuff about your life. As for your REAL writing, I catch your column every week even when you don’t link to it.

    I am definitely a cookbook lover. Our AAUW used-book sale was recently held. Guess which tables were mobbed? Yep, the cooking section. While I keep a lot of recipes on my laptop, there’s just something about cookbooks. I buy a regional cookbook almost every time we vacation.

  2. Oh, Connie, thank you! You have made my day. And I so agree about the cookbooks. Even folks who depend on their computers for new recipes say they can’t resist new cookbooks for inspiration and motivation.
