REVIEW:THE GHOST BY DANIELLE STEELE

Title: The Ghost, Author: Danielle Steel

This is by far one of my favorites, it is so well written and engrossing that I just have to write a glowing post.

It starts off with Charlie a 40+architect living in London with his wife of 9 yrs, being happy and visiting all kinds of terrific places. Meanwhile, his wife decides to inform him that she's leaving him for another man, and from here on you just cannot stop reading. I don't like giving spoilers but I love it once Charlie meets Gladys (not what you would think!!) From here believe me you won't put it down. I have been reading Danielle Steele recently, and I just love her class and elegance in her writing. 

This is definitely a 5 Cans of Pepsi-and one of my all time favorites. I wish to thank Ms. Steele for her exceptional storytelling and such elegance in her writing. I have been collecting her books for the past month and once I have the full set I will be very happy!!

Thanks for reading and stay cool...

THE BEST BASIC BLOGGER'S BUYER'S BIN!! NEW!

I  am starting a new thing for my blog called The BBB's Buyer Bin. This is going to be like classifieds. Posts every Sunday. 

What it is: A place to buy, sell or trade with others. All items must be non-breakable,and not prohibited by law.
I will have a theme -such as books- for each weeks post. 

For instance, I have one Funko Pop for sale, I want to buy Book two of the Game of Thrones series and I will trade (whatever). 

Rules:
$1.00 to post for all three categories-$.50c for only 1 listing (example-you have something for sale). I must charge a small fee as it is going to be time consuming, and I am going to make sure everyone gets what they are asking for.

To make a listing, email me your list and send payment to my paypal-Downie4959@gmail.com. This Sunday is the first post-so please have all lists sent by noon Saturday. I am hoping we can all have fun and get all kinds of goodies reasonably priced.
If for some reason,you do not receive your item. please email me.

I really hope everyone will join the fun!!


COLORING CORNER!!

The Coloring Corner is my weekly meme where we can share our love for coloring! You can post pics,show what you got etc. I hope to see what everyone has this week. New to me is:Splash of Color- Volumes 2 and 3. I will update this post later-as I have forgotten the other one!!

A WONDERFUL BLOG YOU MUST SEE!!

Niighttime Reading Center

YOU MUST go and Visit this incredible blog, it's clean and just absolutely remarkable. I met this incredible young lady who happens to have Asperger's Syndrome, and she is the smartest, most wonderful person I have met in a LOOOOONNNNGGGGG TIME!! Her blog, she designed her header,(isn't it adorable?) and is so professional! I asked her not to laugh at mine...LOL. This young lady has such a beautiful mind and heart and I am thrilled to say that we are friends and have discovered many things in common.

She has a terrific idea for supporting autism-this is dear to my heart as well, as my youngest daughter is autistic. It's called Reading For Autism-and I really hope-you will join us- a future post is coming-not far away. Please stop and visit her,as her blog is just phenomanal(sp?).

MY APOLOGIES

I APOLOGIZE


I want to take time today to apologize for not blogging for so long and also for being behind with my prize winners-I haven't forgotten but I have had a terrible time for the past 8 months or so. I lost my job, I lost my phone,internet and cable back in March. I am now using the library for the moment. My cell phone died. Just a real string of bad luck. I am going to be posting my book reviews (I am SOOO behind with that -however have been writing them on paper) so I can get back to doing reviews which I love doing. I won't be able to catch up on my prizes for awhile, however I have a job interview this week and hopefully I will get it. For those of you who do read this -THANK YOU!!
