Not too bad, I’m definitely doing well with the reading side of things. But still pretty crap at the reviewing, although March has been crazy what with the kids home from school. During the past month I did manage to catch up on some of the books I’ve been meaning to post about bringing my reviews done to 29 out of 55! These are the previously read books I’ve reviewed in March


Weird. Strange. Unusual. Keywords.
Here’s some of the search terms which led people to my blog in the month of March. Not many interesting ones this time, it seemed like most of the searches lately have been about getting book analysis and summaries, lots of book report searches – makes me breathe a sigh of relief that my own kids enjoy reading and don’t have to search the internet to do their homework – if these kids can’t read a book for jr high school, how are they ever going to make it through University? Anyways, that’s a rant for another day :P

“book of negros” + “different title” – Not sure if I mentioned it in my review or not, but The Book Of Negroes is known as Someone Knows My Name in the US market. Lawrence Hill addresses the name change in this article.

“sparkly vampires must die” – Mwaaahhhaaahhhaaa  \m/

“people who constantly whine about the weather” – I live in Nova Scotia, you’d whine too.

“holding readathons” – There’s a readathon coming up on April 18, check it out here.

“morocco, pirates, embroidery” – Sounds like you’re looking for Jane Johnson’s book The Tenth Gift aka Crossed Bones.

“name the 16 characters of The Westing House”  – Had about 25 searches for this question. You’d probably have more luck using the books correct title The Westing Game and try Wikipedia, it has answers to questions you never even knew you even asking.

“haunted harbours chapters/indigo” – Sweet book! Haunted Harbours was written by a local author known as Steve Vernon. Check out his website to find out whether he’s doing any appearances. He was at last years Word On The Street event, I wanted to get my book signed, but yeah I was too shy :)

“how to get passed the crypt in god of war” – Sorry, no idea. I so want this game though!

“naked sex lolcat” – That’s so wrong dude! I will however take advantage of any opportunity for lolcat fun, so here’s some sex/nudity related kittehz!
