It Begins! Coming September 1st and Anytime After! Wild Card!

  Card!


Hi Everybody! While I don't think of myself as old...in my "head" I'm not!

But my body doesn't always agree with my head... Especially in a very important part of my body...my eyes...

Lately my eyes have been blurring and tearing...And I've developed one of those "moving black spots" that can sometimes become disruptive...

There are a couple of other health issues that I won't go into now... But...

For Book Reader's Heaven, my head decided to pay attention to my body; I've already stopped accepting new book review requests. I'm hoping that I just need to slow down in my reading and that will help... I'll just have to wait and see... and, yes, of course, I've discussed these issues with doctors...

But books are so much a part of my life that I know that I won't stop reading (or listening) to books...several individuals have already helpfully highlighted audio books to me. I wholeheartedly support this alternative since my mother, who read a lot, also had to turn to audio books when her eyes got so bad.  I remember often coming home to the sound of some strange voice, turned up high, sharing a story with my mother who sat in her favorite chair, listening...

Something else has happened too...helped along by a book I recently read by Edward Jones...

You see, I'm a liar...I've been a liar most of my life...I admit this, not altogether willingly, but to acknowledge that my lying has, in the long run, I believe, led to a deterioration of my health.

How have I been a liar...well, often, it's been with little things... I did it this morning in fact...I went to Denny's for breakfast on my rare shopping trips. I asked for my eggs "over-easy but done." The first bite of my egg began the runny egg white... Done, I think not...

But when the waitresses asked me if everything was fine...I said yes!

Now, overall the meal was great, so I chose to ignore that it was not perfect...but I did lie... I was not satisfied that, since I was asked how I wanted my eggs, that they weren't cooked that way...

What has caused you to be a little liar? When your friend, or a family member, has hurt you, are you able to say right then and there, how you feel? If not, then you, too, are a liar...and, let me tell you, the stress from that can build and build...

On the other hand, lots of things are good (besides books, LOL) so I'm adding

Wild Card to BRH beginning in September. What that means is that you'll never know what I might be writing about...there will be raves, but there will also be rants, about...

movies, TV, food, any and every kind of product, and...customer service...

There will also be more personal writing, maybe more reblogging of articles that I've really enjoyed...and, as always, poetry, pictures and other good stuff that my friends share from time to time...

What I won't be doing is stopping my blog...but it might slow down from a nearly daily post... 

And, YOU are invited to participate even more in the future! If you don't volunteer, I'll probably be asking for permission to reblog...so, we'll just see how it goes...

Wild Card means anything, everything may be discussed. My own topics will include Living in the Country as a theme--another, Getting Old...don't even ask in advance what will be covered 'cause I have no idea, most will be based upon daily living/life!

One thing, though...I've always been able to, or at least, say 99% of the time, been able to be objective with my book reviews and I'll continue to do that...but, when I'm ranting...well, I can only promise I won't be lying (from my point of view)!

I hope you'll continue to follow me and maybe even share more than in the past! Let me know what you think...One thing I don't want to do is just maintain a blog to "get something off my chest." I can do that with a personal journal...but sometimes those rants may actually help...I hope I can choose correctly, but if I'm way off base, then plan on telling me!
