Out There In Blog Land

Just a couple of interesting blog land tidbits...

Kieshon, from Avid Book Reader has come up with a great book challenge idea. It is a TBR Challenge where readers take a book from their TBR pile and actually read it. If you are like me and your TBR pile is already a mile high, yet you continue to buy more books then this might be the challenge for you.


Kristie(J) from Ramblings on Romance just clued me in to the BBC, North and South (mini series)Crusade. She was nice enough to explain to me the particulars of the crusade, and I was taken enough with her passion for it that I joined up. If you want to know more about the crusade then here is a link to the comments section where she explained it to me.


And apparently I'm a Lemon? I found this little personality quiz on Kristie(J)'s blog and decided to take it.

You Are a Lemon

You have a very distinct personality. And if you're not being sweet, you're a little hard to take.

You're a bit overpowering, especially in one on one situations.And while you are very dominant, sometimes your power is needed and appreciated. You can liven up a dull situation, and you definitely bring a fresh outlook.

You are a bit of an acquired taste, and you tend to grow on people over time. People feel refreshed and rejuvenated after spending time with you.

I'm not sure how much of this rings true, but I thought it was cute.


  1. LOL Passionate is a nice way to put it. Other might say extreme to the point of weirdness *chuckle* But so far just about everyone who has become a Crusader is in agreement :)

  2. Passionate is a good thing! Hey, you sold me. Now I'm giddy with excitement, just waiting for it.

  3. And I'm giddy with excitement waiting for you to see it and let us know your thoughts *big grin* I'm curious to know if you have the Crusader gene in you. One can tell, if after watching it to the end, you watch the final scene again immediately after. Those who have the gene also have big dopey grins on as the final credits roll and are complete piles of mush on the inside.

  4. I just posted my favourite YouTube video of N&S if you want to get a sense of it heh heh!
