It’s my blog day on Romance Books ‘4’ Us. I’m talking about the influence of Queens on books in popular culture. Come see!
My sweet old puppy crossed the rainbow bridge this past Friday. She was my empty nest child and my constant shadow for 14 ½ years. She’s off sniffing out the universe while I’m left with a broken heart to mourn her passing.
The above post at RB4U literally took me five hours to write. I’ll be taking a break for a while. I have no words just now.
For 100 days, I’ll post something from my chosen topic: Clichés.
There are 52 entries to come.
Here’s a cliché for today:

Another little odd coincidence. You mention Oprah’s Book Club. I have never been one for book clubs or Best Seller Lists to pick my books, but love to see that something I am reading or have read is on either one. The coincidence is White Oleander. It was on TV today. I originally saw it in 2003 not long after it was released with a friend from work. When she was transferred I took her to the Orlando airport. After she went to the gate I stopped in a bookstore in the airport. There was a stack of White Oleander books on a display table so I bought one finding out it was an Oprah Book Club selection.
I decided to favorite the Gutenberg link only to find out I already have it and have used it in the past. I thought so, but decided to check.
My great granddaughter who turned five this month never watched TV even when it was on for the first two years of her life. Even now she wants cartoons on, but when I turn them on she watches for a few minutes and suddenly I am the only one in the room. Her mother used to tease me. She would change the channel on the TV to something I hated then immediately leave the room so I could discover for myself when my attention took a break from the computer screen.
For me TV is background. Because I worked for years aboard ship with all the noise you can’t escape I can’t stand silence. I have my favorite programs, but don’t even follow them closely. It interferes with reading.
