It's a Hoppin' Good Time!

Ahhhh, it's Friday.  That means it's Book Blogger Hop time.  If you've never done the Hop, click on over to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer to get all the details.  It's lots of fun—you should most definitely join in!

This week's question is:  You're going on a long train ride.  What books will you bring to read?

-- Well, if it was the last train ride before I died or something, maybe I would take along my scriptures or some great classic.  But, if it was just an ordinary train ride, I'd bring along whatever I happened to be reading at the time.  Or, maybe just my Kindle so I'd have lots of options.  If I was going on this train ride tomorrow, I would most definitely grab The Wanderer, the first book in a new series by my favorite romance writer, Robyn Carr.  Her wonderful publicist just sent me a finished copy and I can't wait to read it!

How about you?  What books would you be reading?


Thanks so much for Hopping by.  I love "meeting" new readers and "chatting" with old friends.  It just makes me happy :)  If you're new around here, welcome!  Please take a look around, leave me a comment or two (or ten) and, most important, come back often.  I promise to return the favor.  Until then, have a wonderful weekend.  Happy reading!


  1. Are Robyn Carr's book clean? I love romance and I don't mind sex in books, but I just don't like gratuitous sex, if that makes sense.

    1. Unfortunately, they are not. If they were movies, they'd be rated R for language (a handful of F-bombs, plus milder invectives) and sex scenes (usually only a couple per book and they're fairly graphic). I wish it weren't so, but there you go. Her books are my guilty pleasure -- and I don't even like romance novels! I just like her :)

  2. I'd take my kindle too. Best to have options.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my site. Great options for reading on a train trip. I need to put a kindle on my wish list.

  4. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I just received Robyn Carr's new book too - I can't wait to read it too! I didn't even think about the Kindle - still new to me. =)


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
