This morning, I have been sprucing up my blog page. Goodness knows what I have done. I have not fixed the Facebook button, although it works. Nothing much on the FB page because I seldom visit it. I just wanted to see if I could create a link. Ditto the ‘Goodreads’ widget. As part of a test to discover what would pop up on the WordPress Blog page, I listed many children’s books I have read on the Goodreads book site. Some are books I read when I was younger, others books I read to my kids. Don’t be confused, I am reading some adult material which will pop up eventually (I hope).
I have decided based on the best seller lists in the Washington Post and New York Times, that I have almost nothing in common with the general public book wise. The exception may be healthful cook books. Everyone seems to be on the health and nutrition bandwagon these days.
Speaking of which Michelle Obama has a new book entitled, American Grown, about her White House garden. It looks like a potentially lovely garden book, but Amazon had not set up the “look inside this book” feature as of today, so I can’t say more. Hopefully they will do this soon. At $15.00 for the Kindle edition, it is kinda pricey. However, I am not buying any more garden books for Kindle…unless they are garden essays which I find charming. The regular garden books with lots of photos are my favorite shtick, so if I get this book, I will buy the hardcover. Now you know one of my secrets, I am a sucker for pretty colors. This goes ditto for cook books.
So, don’t be deceived by the new image on the lower right hand side of my blog which says ‘Goodreads.’ Hopefully, I have not locked anyone out of my blog in the process of setting up this widget.
A couple of people have reported having problems leaving a comments. I apologize if you are one of them. Somehow these readers found my email address, and let me know they cannot leave a message. I have fiddled with the settings this morning. I pray I did not ruin anything.
Now, I am off to look at cookbooks and figure out what’s for dinner. Eggs Florentine anyone?
