Back with a New Layout!

I hope you like the new look as much as I do! Wow, 2010 went by very fast especially after my son started Kindergarten. 2011 is beginning to look much the same. We've had tons of minor crises to attend to but we're still here, alive and kicking (well...that would be my son doing the kicking). In my time away from this blog, I've read The Road to Shanhasson by Joely Sue Burkhart and found that I was unable to write a review for it. That wasn't because I didn't like it, in fact I loved it with the exception of a portion of her book that broke my heart into tiny little pieces. Obviously I won't tell you how that occurred so if you want to know, you'll have to read it yourself.

My other potential review was for Anna Kashina's Ivan and Marya. I want to review this book. The few chapters I've read are attention capturing. What's not is the format of the ebook I have. I've tried several different apps for pdf reading for my iPod Touch and none of them I've liked. Having to zoom in and out plus scrolling from side to side makes reading one page utilizing one of the pdf apps a pain! I have a possible solution now. Hubby got the new iPad 2 and guess who got his old iPad? Me! Yay! I'll give the pdf reader one more try, this time on the iPad with its much larger screen. If that doesn't work....well I'm just going to bite the bullet and buy it in Kindle format.
