As Promised...

As promised on O.W. , here is a list of the books I want to finish reading by June of 2012:

David Copperfield
Rose in Bloom
Eight Cousins
The Valley of Fear
His Last Bow
A Study in Scarlet
The Mysterious Affair at Styles

I may add more if I have the time, but for now, these books will be my goal. I am currently reading David Copperfield, and so far its so good. One question for my small audience, would anyone happen to know which one comes first: Rose in Bloom or Eight Cousins? I have no idea.

Happy Reading!

Pride and Prejudice: A not quite finished book review

Have you ever read 2 or 3 chapters in a book and after those 2 or 3 chapters you already know that you love the book and that it will be one of your new favorites? Well guess what! I am reading Pride and Prejudice right now. And for me, its just like that. I'm only on chapter 9 or 10, but I knew back at chapter 3 that it was going to be an awesome book and a new favorite of mine. I highly recommend reading it, even though I haven't finished it myself.

Happy Reading!

Long time no see? Again??

Whew. Its been a long time since I posted here. Let's brush away the cobwebs though. Everyone, please please please tell me what you are reading and if you like it or not. This blog is just for reading... So lets read!

I recently read The Daughter of Time, its a great fictional book by Josephine Tey about the Two Princes in the Tower in London. An injured Inspector Grant sits in bed, unraveling a fictional mystery about how the poor princes deaths came about. Its a wonderful book-- Go Read It!!

I have also recently read Emily of Deep Valley, by Maud Hart Lovelace, which is about a high school graduate Emily who loves to learn and go to school, but sadly cannot go to college because she must take care of her Civil War veteran grandfather. I must have read this book a million times after I got it in the mail! In fact, I was Emily(the main character) for Halloween this past year! Now go read it!

Hey! So...

Organic Words is having a Poetry Let's Write from now until October 31. Write Spooky Poetry for Halloween of Saintly Poetry for All Saints Day. Or write both. Your choice. Also, NaNoWriMo ( and Young Writer's NaNoWriMo ( start on November 1 and goes until midnight on November 30. Be there! (NaNoWriMo( is for people 13 and older. Thank you.) So, just wanted to give you the same ol' run down. Also. I was thinking the Knights of the Writer's Table(Book Club 4 Organic Words) readers could do a reading project. Here is what it is. Email me if you want in....

  • Pick a book, whether you are reading for school or if its for fun have a book to read by December 1. 
  • Read the book until you're done, preferably BEFORE December 28. 
  • For a few days, think about the book. That's right. Think. Just for fun....
  • Then write ONE word that describes the book. Don't make it a word like fun. Or interesting. You could say that about any book. Do some research if you have to. Go to Merriam-Webster's ( and look up some words that you think might describe it. The Thesaurus tells you which words are synonyms, similar, antonyms, and what the word means. Its pretty cool. 
  • Then send the title of the book and the word to me ( and I'll post it along with some New Year's stuff. Then other people can read the book and write their own description if they want. But still, send in a word, the title and let other people know about the book, whether it be a warning to keep away( the book was horrible) or to go find it as fast as possible (the book was awesome). 

So email me if you want to do it and if I get enough people we will go ahead and proceed. Otherwise, here is our word for the month:


big·ot  noun \ˈbi-gət\

Definition of BIGOT

: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance 
Alright then. Merriam Webster Online said this was the most looked up word on October 1, 2010. So I thought it would be good to post it here today.

This is a repost of Organic Words....

My rectangle family

So, this is my rectangle family. My off topic but interesting rectangle family. Here's a better picture....

I have a whole 'world' almost of them. I'll share more occasionally, but I wanted to see your reaction to these first....I have a farmer's market scene, a family reunion scence, etc. But since they are slightly off topic I thought I shouldn't post them too often..... Also, NaNoWriMo starts in a few week so make sure you warm up with a few writing exercises before you begin on Nov. 1!!!!!!!!!!
