WELCOME to the Small Book Blog! I am a voracious reader. I love losing myself in books and cannot wait to read myself into my next adventure. It is because of this love for books that I created this blog. I want to share my passion of books with you! I hope you enjoy my recommendations and reviews. My goal is that they will lead you to a new book, series or author, that you can fall in love with and recommend to others as well.

Happy Easter Book... oops Egg Hunt!

It’s almost the weekend! Wahoo! I love the weekends because there are usually brief moments of time I can squeeze in some extra reading and look at my “to-read” shelf to decide what my mood is and what to read next. Lately, I have been voraciously reading Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson series and loving it. I am on book 6. The sad thing is I only have a few books to go before I am caught up with the author and will have to “hurry up and wait”. I would like to say that slows down my reading pace so I can savor what is available but it doesn’t usually change a thing. I reviewed book one of this series previously and am more in love with this series and characters 6 books in so it is a definite recommend for people wanting some kick-ass adventure with paranormal characters (Werewolves, Fae, Walkers, Vampires) and sexy PG-13-ish romance.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter weekend and may your book and egg hunts be successful!

I LOVE Finding New Book Stores!

Usborne Books & More, or UBAM, is a new (to me) online book vendor/store that I was recently introduced to.  It is set up similar to Mary Kay, doTERRA, Tupperware, in that you will have the most fun and success finding a UBAM consultant who can set up an online or in-person book party.  However, you can also go to their website, sign in and order books that way. UBAM has a huge selection of fictional, non-fictional, and interactive (in SO many fun and creative ways) books from age zero to teenagers in more categories than I care to list here but LOVE. You will have to check it out. My little dragon is 2 ½ and I was very excited to see how well organized UBAM is with reading and age levels of books set out for kids and parents to understand. I have found a few unique books I cannot wait to have my little dragon interact with or read. I also have a wish list that continues to grow…

Shine a Light book is the first unique book I have purchased and as you are reading the book, you use a flashlight behind the page you are reading to make hidden pictures appear. So FUN! I also love the Muddle & Match books. It is as if someone took a pile of story boards, created the main character, chopped it into thirds and bound it as a book. There are endless possibilities in the character your child creates and stories that correspond to the new character page/story you have muddled together.

My dear friend Megan, who is the instigator getting this bibliophile into all kinds of trouble (at least it is good trouble, LOL!), introduced me to UBAM. She is available and wants to share her love and knowledge of books with you. Visit her website, set up an online party or have an in-person party so you can delight in seeing and touching the books on your ever growing wish list. Travel will be limited to areas of Oregon so please contact Megan directly to discuss your party.
