My Happy List: She's Rather *Bookish*


Yet another theme for My Happy List, the most positive link party in the blogosphere!

My Happy List

1.   My nerdy daughter, Shanley Belle, has started her own blog, Chocolate and Happily Ever After.  She will be blogging about delicious guilt-free treats and books.   It is rather cute, and I hope y'all will go over there and say "Hi!" to her.  She would appreciate your feedback! Reading Shanley's blog makes me happy!


2.   Miss Angie @ My So-Called Chaos and Beth @ Living the Goddess Life are hosting a book swap after my own heart.  Participants will send three books to their partners:

Book #1: A Book You Love

Book #2: A Book You Haven't Read

Book #3: A Book Your Partner Wants

Swaps and new books make so very happy!!!

3.   Literary Friday will now be a link party!  I hope y'all will join in on the fun from time to time. The first party will be on Friday, June 8th.  Write a post about your Summer Reading Wish List if you want!  Hosting a new link party makes me very nervous happy!

4.    For those of you who are Outlander fans, this quote made me very happy this week:

"So they handcuffed me and said, 'Anything you say can and will be held against you.'  So I said, 'James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser.'"

*giggles*  I love this!

What is making you happy this week?

Until next time...

I LOVE the Outlander series!!! Now I want to go back and re- read it!

Looking forward to checking out your daughter's blog!

I'd love to link up with your new linky party, but I don't necessarily have a list. Guess I'm more a "fly by the seat of my pants" girl. :)

Bonnie said...

I'm so excited that you're hosting a reading linky party. I probably won't be able to link up every Friday, but I will certainly be a faithful linker!

Ricki Jill,
I just left a comment (I thought) and it disappeared! So if it magically appears and you see I've left another just know it's the computer elves, at it again.
I love happy lists. Such a great idea. Shanley's blog is wonderful...you must be so proud AND happy!

Paula said...

I'm somehow missing the profile picture that others can see.

I visited Shanley at her new blog and hope she has fun with it.

If I ever get a summer reading list together, I'll certainly participate in your new party.

Shanley said...

I love this happy list!!! And I'm taking the nerdy comment as a compliment, thankyouverymuch! :)
