This blog began February 9, 2010 (see the very first post here) The Help by Kathryn Stockett was #1 on the bestseller list, The Hurt Locker was about to win the Oscar, Vancouver was embracing Winter Olympic Fever, and the H1N1 Flu pandemic was winding down (say what?!!!) After a pretty reliable first few years, Bedside Table Books began to waver and then revive and then wilt again … poor thing. All along, whenever its writer was not actually writing, she’s continued to maintain regular blog conversations in her head. Worrisome, I know. Now, prompted by a pandemic, I, the Writer, have been propelled back to the blog page with burbling bookish thoughts I am irresistibly inclined to share. Not sure you’re still out there … anyone out there? … but stand by for a few of the most recent compelling, and propelling, thoughts!

To quote the character Babe in the TV show, Grace & Frankie, it’s time to “Get Crackin’ Toots!” 

 

 

 

 

It’s Been a Year!

February 8, 2011

Bedside Table Books launched a year ago!

Thank you all for playing along and encouraging me so – 52 weeks have absolutely flown by. Your interest and enthusiasm is always a delight to me and I’m most grateful.

I’ve been on the road a bit lately so the weekly posts have been slightly tardy on occasion. Lots of fun things in the docket though so next week we’ll get back to a regular weekly visit.

I’ve been struggling with finding time to read and am juggling more than one book – not a comfortable state for me though I know many readers who like to read several books at once. Are you one of them? Reading something worth sharing at the moment? Let us know!

Have a great week.
