3 Days/ 3 Quotes/ Day #2

One of the blogs that I follow, SonofABeach69, has been participating in a 3 Days/ 3 Quote Challenge and has left an open invitation for others to play along.  I love quotes.  Any kind will do.  Funny, inspirational, dry or sarcastic humour, whenever works for your soul or mood on any given day.

The rules of this challenge are simple:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days
  • Nominate 3 bloggers each day.

I’m not going to follow these rules.  I will post for 3 days, but like SonOfABeach, I will leave it open to anyone who wants to play along.

Here goes Day 2

Today I choose a quote from Michael J Fox.  If you have ever read any of his books, or even just some quotes from him, he is very inspirational.  I highly recommend Lucky Man.  It still remains one of my favourite books and made me love him even more.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Books or Paper

With my deep love of books and reading I thought I would have chosen a one for this challenge.

This was taken a few years back when my son hit the Jackpot at the Midway in Niagara Falls.  I probably spent more money on tokens for the games than the actual prize was worth, but he had so much fun.  His face says it all!  Little paper tickets equalled giant loads of excitement.

My first quote will come from my favourite all time song Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve. The first time I heard this song was in the movie Cruel Intentions.  I have loved the song and the movie ever since.

I think this song and its lyrics speak so accurately about life and honestly, if I could have, I would have quoted the entire song.  But here is what I have chosen.

the-verve-a-million-different-people-from-one-day-to-the-next

I think that is quote describes a lot of people, especially parents.  We are so many different people through a day.  We wear many different hats and take on many different roles.  A million people from one day to the next.

If you decide to play along, tag me, I would love to read what you have chosen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reading…It’s In My Blood

I love to read. I’d prefer it over watching a movie or TV any day. I love the books that just grab you right from the beginning. The ones that keep you turning the pages long after you should have gone to bed. And I love when others share in my joy of reading, especially if we love the same book.

Also I really enjoy getting recommendations.

So I ask, what book(s) would you recommend to me? A book that you’re really excited about and think others should read?

About Unlocked601c8-ul2bpaperback2bfinal

Princess Raya of Paruth lived alone on a deserted island in a towering lighthouse, forgotten by time. With only a loyal albatross as a friend, she had little hope or joy in her life until he washed up on her shore in the middle of a raging winter storm.

Prince Trevor of Galder left his father and kingdom behind to travel north in search of a wife. It was time to settle down and forget Ella Carina, the woman who chose to love a peasant and follow her heart instead of choosing Trevor and fulfilling her duty to her people. He didn’t heed the warnings about the North Sea in winter, and his ship, crew, and captain paid the price.

Raya and Trevor must work together to find a way off the island, or risk being trapped there for the rest of their lives. But sometimes the simplest lessons are the hardest, and each will have to learn that the only thing that can truly set you free is love
