Winter Reading List

Honestly, I never really thought I’d be into the whole “vlogging” thing. The word “vlog” annoys me even more than “blog”. But I’ve been following a lot of bloggers who participate in VlogTalk. It kind of looked like fun, so I decided to give it a try. Check out my winter reading list.


So, is seeing my face and hearing my voice totally weird? I think so.

    Yes, totally weird hearing your voice. Punky Brewster is a good writer? I’M READING SORCERER’S STONE TOO! Just started 2 days ago. I don’t read. EVER. The only books I’ve read in over a decade were the Harry Potters. I got through the first 6 and then had Justin and never got to Deathly Hollows. I started the first two over about 2 years ago…and now I’m starting over again. I started reading a few pages with Ryan last year when he was 7, but I quickly realized he couldn’t keep up. I’m waiting until he’s in 3rd grade and letting him read it himself.

      So you haven’t read Deathly Hallows yet? Ack!

      I’m not sure if T will be able to keep up, but I’m going to give it a try. If not, then I’ll just keep reading it for myself. 🙂

      books on cd/mp3/audiobooks for iphones. . . let the mellifluous voice of Jim Dale read the Harry Potter books TO you while you do your thang.

      Nice job on the vlog, Rox! You didn’t say a thousand ums or look uncomfortable or anything!

      • Roxanne

        I’m glad I didn’t look as uncomfortable as I felt!

        I should try out audiobooks. I don’t think I’ve ever listened to one before. Might be interesting.

    I think its great that you vlogged. I want to and haven’t had a chance. Maybe I can sit down tonight and try my hand at it 🙂

    I love the re-do of your site. You’ll have to let me know how the switch to word press was!

    • Roxanne

      The switch was okay. I published to my site sooner than the book told me to, because I rush everything. So the site was all wonky for a few days. But if you follow the directions, it’s actually not that difficult. 😉

    I’ve already met you in person so seeing you in video was nothing new but I am so happy you decided to linkup with us for VlogTalk.

    I’ve read all of the Dragon Tattoo books and all of Harry Potter. I liked both series.

    • Roxanne

      I’m into the second Dragon Tattoo book, and I think I like it a bit more. Just because it doesn’t start off as slow as the first one.

      I’m looking forward to seeing what other prompts you ladies have. I might link up again. It certainly was an interesting (and fun) experience.

    Now I know what your voice sounds like. Love it!

    I just got the first Dragon Tattoo book for Christmas but I haven’t started yet.

    Thanks for linking with us!

    • Roxanne

      I’m always thrown off every time I hear a blogger’s real voice.

      Warning: the first Dragon Tattoo book starts off slow. It’s not until chapter 10 or 11 that it really starts getting good. So don’t get discouraged.

    I haven’t been reading “real” books in so long. I think I’ll look into renting some of these suggestions from the library. I have never heard of the “Feeling good” and am interested to see if it would help me too, thanks!

    • Roxanne

      You should definitely check out Feeling Good. I’m only part way into it, but it’s got some very interesting perspectives on depression.

    Yay! I’m so glad you joined us this week. You have such an extensive reading list. I’ve been wanting to pick up a copy of Happy Chaos. How fun to read Harry Potter with your little guy. I hope to do so someday as well with my boys.
