Even More From Erin’s Shelves, Including A Book Of KY Ghost Stories

I never knew I was such a book worm! I was scrounging around at my parents' house; they were still on vacation and I found a gold mine of books I know I've read. Some are classics, some aren't, but they are all good reads, especially that thin blue one towards the top of the pile.

A Tour Of Erin’s Bookshelf And Beyond

Yes, there may not be many books on my orange shelf, but I think it's good to have a few to liven up a room. What about you? Do you like to read? If so, do you still read a physical book as seen here? Or, do you download all of your literature to your various mobile devices. Me, I do a little bit of both.

Watch The Official “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Trailer: Not Safe For Young Eyes

I'm not a reader. I'm not gonna lie to you and say that I am, I'm just not. While admitting that, do you know how long it took me to read the Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy? Ten days. Yes, three books in ten days. There's no shame in my I-just-couldn't-stop-reading-about-the-many-red-hot-layers of Christian Grey game. (See what I did there?!?)

So, you can imagine my anticipation for the movie. Even thou the movie won't be here until Valentine's Day 2015, the official trailer has been released. (I've already watched it 5 times, haha!)

DISCLAIMER: THIS VIDEO IS NOT FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 OR WHO EMBARRASSES EASILY. YES, ADULTS ONLY PEOPLE! OH... ENJOY ;)

Roxianne the Receptionist showed me this video she found on Facebook and I was not prepared for it, ha!

You must take the time out of your day and watch this adorable little girl tell you all about Jonah, with the amazing story like you've never heard!

What Books Did You Read in Your Elementary School Library?

To get ready for the Read Across America event Saturday at Towne Square Mall, I stopped by to see librarian Patti Moore at Newton Parrish Elementary school.  As soon as I walked in the room and saw the shelves full of books, I had instant flashbacks to the library at Thruston Elementary School where Mrs. Nation was the librarian.  And almost just as instantly, I started recalling the books that she used to read us and the ones I used to love reading myself.  And, to my surprise, many of the same books were at Newton Parrish.  LOOK!
