Gerber Baby

Gerber Baby

So I always said I wouldn’t be one of those moms, but I totally am. My little hunny bunny is such a cutie, and I can’t help myself from sharing pictures most days. So I entered him in the Gerber Generation Photo Search. Please vote for my baby!! Everyday starting today and ending September 24. If he wins the scholarship, we’ll love you for life. 🙂

I GOT MY KINDLE!!

I GOT MY KINDLE!!

I received the Kindle I won yesterday!!  Can you tell how excited I am?  I have already uploaded 72 books!  I love love love reading.  My first book will be Dirty Little Angels by Chris Tusa, who has asked me to read and write a review.

And since I’m on the subject, here are the other books I’m reading right now:

  • Want to Start a Revolution? Radical Women in the Black Freedom Struggle, edited by Dayo Gore, Jeanne Theoharis, and Komozi Woodard

  • Last Lion: The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy by Peter Canellos

Thanks again to Faydra for hosting the contest and to everyone who voted for me!  And for anyone who hasn’t read it, here’s my winning essay!

Travelling and reading are my two favorite pastimes.  Exploring the world, considering new ideas, and expanding my mind, imagination, and consciousness are invaluable to me.  Someone once said that to change how you live, you must change what you know—that we live our knowledge, so we must strive to increase our knowledge.  I agree with that someone.  We must read, study, learn, and understand.  With a Kindle, I would have an easier time reading as I travel.

Currently, I take every chance I get to read.  My reading list consists of hundreds of books so I try to read any time I have a free moment.  I read on MARTA on my way to and from work.  I steal away at lunch and read as I eat.  In the evenings, I read before I go to bed.  Sometimes, I focus on one book, but in any given time frame, I may be reading 3 or 4 books at one time.  That’s where the usefulness of a Kindle comes in.  Instead of lugging around 3 books at a time, I’d be able to stow away this device and read as many books as I want at my leisure.  When I travel to new places, I will be able to read my books without adding extra weight to my luggage.  I can just put my Kindle in my purse!  How convenient for a book lover like me!  Winning a Kindle will make my pastimes even more enjoyable!

You can win a Kindle too!

As I excitedly wait for my Kindle to be delivered, I am happy to share the news that @faydra_deon will be hosting another Kindle giveaway next month!  This time the winner will be picked based on who writes the best short story!  So think about what you want to write, and enter!  Never know, you could be the next winner!!

I won!!

Thanks to all of you out there who voted for my essay and spread the word.  I’m getting a Kindle!! I guess it’s time for me to start actually publishing my book reviews, huh?  🙂

I know I’ve been ghost lately. No worries–I’ll be posting up a storm in just a little while.  Until then, make everyday a positive, productive day!
