New Look, Contest Books and Tuesday's Theme

Ok, in case you haven't noticed I changed my page some and added my fav writing quotes to my sidebar.

Also, I have decided on the books I will offer the contest winner to choose from once the contest has concluded. You may choose one of these 3 books:

Me Talk Pretty One Day~David Sedaris

Interpreter of Maladies~Jhumpa Lahiri

Queen of Camelot~Nancy McKenzie

All three of these books are amazing, it is a hard choice. The first 2 are collections of short stories by amazingly superlative authors and the 3rd is a novel about the reign of King Arthur and his beautiful, enigmatic wife, Guinevere, told by one of my fav authors, Nancy McKenzie. You can read my review of this novel here.

So, come on people, I've only had one person offer their idea for the contest. I'm a damsel in distress and I need your help finding a new name for Free For All Saturday! Help a gal out, won't ya?

Now, on to Tuesday's Theme....


Write a story, poem, essay or blog post regarding this theme and once you are done leave a link to that post (not to your blog in general) here in the comment section. Also, please remember to link to this post in your post.

May inspiration always find you!

Jane, I'm in the middle of dumping the EC. Felt like I should explain the reject to you. It takes time away from my writing, so it must go! I'm still following you. All the best. LL

I just wanted to say hello!
Do you have time to read?
I am jealous!

Love, peace and happiness!

Lorenzo~ Thank you for the explanation, I appreciate that! Sorry it took me so long to answer your comment!

Buddha~ Hey there! I do manage to find time to read, but usually only when my kids aren't home, which isn't often!

Just a quick note to say I've read "Interpreter of Maladies" and it's a wonderful short story collection that I'd strongly recommend.
