Interesting Book I Am Reading


During Sunday School Class, the topic of a book came up that sounded very intriging.

Case for Christ/Case for Faith Compilation [Kindle Edition]

Lee Strobel

Lee Strobel (www.LeeStrobel.com), with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. His books include four Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Christian Book of the Year (coauthored with Garry Poole). He and his wife live in Colorado.

First of all to find out that he was an atheist when he first began was a surprise to me.  He only began to investigate due to his wife becoming a Christian.  His book has become a movie if you are not patient enough to read a book so look to see if it is available in DVD in your area.

Sorry I am not giving away about the book….read it for yourself and I will say that you will be glad that you did.  Just do not expect to get much done around the house as it is one of those can’t put it down books once you start to read it.

Daily Prompt: Hello Book It Has Been A While


Daily Prompt: Bookworm

Tell us about the last book you read (Why did you choose it? Would you recommend it?).

To go further, write a post based on its subject matter.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WORDS.

I have had two books sitting on my shelf that I have been reading.  For some reason, reading does not come as easy to me now that I am older as it did in my youth.

Not counting my Kindle subscription for http://www.magazines.com/crochet-today

Crochet Today! Magazine

I read that every month when it comes out as I have students who need new patterns. I also did not include all my cookbooks as they are reference books.


http://www.amazon.com/Eat-Pray-Love-Everything-Indonesia

http://www.amazon.com/Look-Me-Eye-Life-Aspergers

The most intriguiging book that I actually did audio was debated when I was in college and I was in the Literary Guild.  I was on the panel and due to the book being auditory I picked up a lot that the basic reader on the panel did not.

Product Details
http://www.amazon.com/Horse-Whisperer-Nicholas-Evans

The audio version was more indepth and you could feel what the author was getting across by the tones of the voices.  I do not kiss and tell so you are on your own to find out details.  I am not the person who sits in the room and tells you the ending of the movie before it is over.

My next purchase is to get the two hard cover books on audio.  I seem to actually get through books much better that way.  Since my kindle died due to being plugged into the wrong outlet, I have to decide what new one I want to get.  That will start me on my way to my audio adventure.

Daily Prompt: Seven Days Free


The Ghosts in Your Dashboard

by Cheri Lucas Rowlands on May 7, 2013

Your WordPress.com dashboard is the nerve center of your blog: it’s where your ideas come to life, and your creativity gives them shape. As writers, artists, and thinkers, we know inspiration can be sporadic and those moments of genius are fleeting — they come and go, which means that sometimes your literary flame burns out, and those bursts of creation are short-lived.

The result? An abandoned idea. The dreaded draft, sitting in limbo, staring back at you. And so, we’re curious: what’s lurking in the drafts section of your dashboard?

I honestly thought the answer was going to be nothing till I looked and here it was…

Daily Prompt: Seven Days

by michelle w. on March 7, 2013

You wake up tomorrow morning to find all your plans have been cancelled for the next seven days and $10,000 on your dresser. Tell us about your week.

 We own a Tupperware Store  so the reality of even getting a few days off is a pipe dream.  Finding money in a dresser drawer of that amount?  Seriously, we did not rob a bank last night.
This is not a reality to me and is very odd for a prompt.  Yet when I think about it, every day we have free.  Free to choose what we will do with our lives.  If we chose we could be closed for the day and just take off and do what we want on Post or take off for an appointment to Nashville, TN if we need to.  We are already free to do what we want.  Without the money.  That is what being self employed is all about.
Perhaps that is why I never wrote this prompt.  I was never certain how to really answer it clearly till now.

Daily Prompt: Books I read over again without Boredom


Daily Prompt: Second Time Around

Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?

In a few words, that would be my cookbooks and crochet books.  I use these as resource books and when bored I do sit and read them when I am not feeling up to reading a novel or a book of non-fiction.

I am a member of Good Reads as you can tell by my side wall.  I have been stagnant on two books for a while.  They are great books and very interesting.
I just have too busy of a life right at the moment to just sit and read.

sit and read
When all of my projects are finished, or I happen to get a magic genie who gives me a huge claw foot soaker tub, then I might be persuaded to take the time to sit in a hot tub and relax with a good book.

the tub
Right now we have a baby tub as our bathroom was designed for a family who stood under 5′.
We installed the hand held shower so that we can at least enjoy a decent shower without bending down to take it.

When the claw foot tub or soaker tub arrives then perhaps life will be different..that is on the list, right behind the hot water heater and the dishwasher.

What is the book that you constantly find yourself reading?  Besides the Bible.
I did not include that one because most of us do that on a regular basis as a given.
Would love to hear.

Here are what one other Daily Prompt writer had to say on the subject:

  1. Daily Prompt: Second Time Around | as i was saying…
 Due to my writing so early in the morning check back during the day to see what more Daily Prompt ideas came about.

Daily Prompt: My Opposite


Daily Prompt: The Bizarro World

In the DC comics universe, a planet called “Htrae” (“Earth” spelled backwards) is populated with bizarre versions of superheroes. A Seinfeld episode made the idea of this Bizarro World popular, where the characters encountered their opposite selves.

Craft a scene in which you meet an opposite version of yourself — or a story in a bizarre, backwards world.

world

worldDyslexia is a broad terminology defining a learning disability that impairs a person’s fluency or comprehension accuracy in being able to read,[1] and which can manifest itself as a difficulty with phonological awarenessphonological decoding, processing speed, orthographic codingauditory short-term memory, language skills/verbal comprehension, and/or rapid naming.[2][3][4]That person and story would be one of a life without dyslexia.

Dyslexia is distinct from reading difficulties resulting from other causes, such as a non-neurological deficiency with vision or hearing, or from poor or inadequate reading instruction.[5][6] It is believed that dyslexia can affect between 5 and 10 percent of a given population although there have been no studies to indicate an accurate percentage.[7][8][9]

There are three proposed cognitive subtypes of dyslexia (auditory, visual and attentional), although individual cases of dyslexia are better explained by specific underlying neuropsychological deficits and co-occurring learning disabilities (e.g. attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, math disability, etc.).[8][10][11][12][13][14] Reading disability, or dyslexia, is the most common learning disability. Although it is considered to be a receptive language-based learning disability in the research literature, dyslexia also affects one’s expressive language skills.[15] Researchers at MITfound that people with dyslexia exhibited impaired voice-recognition abilities.[16]

Adult dyslexics can read with good comprehension, but they tend to read more slowly than non-dyslexics and perform more poorly at spelling and nonsense word reading, a measure of phonological awareness.[17] Dyslexia and IQ are not interrelated as a result of cognition developing independently.[18]

Now that the term has been clarified I can begin my quest…sorry still stuck on the letter Q lol…

To be able to read a magazine from the left to the right would be an interesting concept.  It is not how my brain functions.  My new person would have that ability.  To be able to blog without making constant changes in words would also be interesting.  I am amazed that I can actually spell as well as I can.  My new person would be a genius with spelling words.

Creative thinking would come quickly and be far more enhanced.  The concepts and thought patterns that flow through my brain rapidly and constantly would be smooth and precise with the new person.

The ability to say what they should and not blurt as if they were suffering from ADD or Autism.  That is what I am like.  It just flows out of my mouth.  Not intentionally.

It can be very frustrating at times.  I have over the years learned how to control it.  My new person would have the full ability to be strong and have eloquent speech.

She would probably be boring and not funny at all, now that I think of it.  (Special note:  I went through regular classes in school.  They did not have the diagnoses and special classes that they do today.)

Again, I am what God made of me…I will stay like me…

No thank you Daily Prompt.  As difficult as it is to write daily, it is a blessing to be able to accomplish this task and I do enjoy it.

I will continue to be me.  I love that God decided that I will be my own person and I am here on Htrae for a reason.

Don’t we all have another side to us that does not always show?

 

Here is where other Daily Prompt Writers went with this prompt:

  1. Effy Stonem and I – Happy Alter Ego Day | Never Stationary
  2. Daily Prompt: The Bizarro World Super Hero | Lines by Linda
 Since I blog so early in the morning you will have to check back to see what other bloggers did with this prompt throughout the day.

Have a great day,
