Fallen Eyes Beta Just Arrived! J.K. Walker is Da’ Bomb!

Yes, I have been MIA for a few days. I have been trying my best to stay away from my computer for a while, remove myself from the temptation to drive myself NUTS and burn myself out with my reading. I knew that J.K. Walker’s beta of Fallen Eyes was due to arrive, and I wanted a “fresh palate” to start on the beta.So, I have been working on the sweater I am doing for Bob and basically enjoying some of this beautiful Colorado mid-winter sunshine.

Resolve to Move Your Mutt (and your BUTT!)

M. K. Clinton has entered the Move Your Mutt along with Bentley and Pierre. I need to do the same thing, if my Butt gets any bigger I am going to need my own zip code! So, here is a copy of today’s post from http://www.mkclinton.com to help you learn more about it and join!

Resolve to Move Your Mutt (and your BUTT!)

This is the big day Bentley and I declare our resolutions in the Move Your Mutt campaign.  It is an effort by petsmove.org to help band pet owners together supporting each other in keeping our resolutions to get off our butts and move our mutts.  I have filled out my registration and added Bentley’s current stats.  Pierre will be joining us but I am only keeping a diary for Bentley.  I will post both of their progress here so he won’t feel slighted.
I am not going to hold a sign but my resolutions to be a better pet parent are:
1.  Walk or exercise them each day for at least 30 minutes.
2.  No more junk food for us and no table food for them.  (Bentley already does not like this idea.)
3.  Use FURminator on Bentley every day.
Now, Bentley and Pierre’s resolutions:

Bentley is excited to start his daily walking regiment, but he has serious doubts about pumping any iron.

Now, a little addition from Slimdoggy:
How to calculate necessary calories for your dogs!
This is a blog hop hosted by Slimdoggy and Keep the Tail Wagging.  Be sure to check out everyone’s resolutions, make some of your own, and join us.  Together, we can encourage one another to meet our goals.

A Challenge for Reviewers of E.L. James

Reason sits firm and holds the reins, and she will not let the feelings burst away and hurry her to wild chasms. The passions may rage furiously, like true heathens, as they are; and the desires may imagine all sorts of vain things: but judgment shall still have the last word in every argument, and the casting vote in every decision.
– Charlotte Bronte

We are not people with no discriminating taste when it comes to literature.” – Pamelia A. in a 5-Star Review for “50 Shades of Grey”

A Jury Of Her Peers

Like some other reviewers, what I find terribly depressing is that this is a runaway bestseller and the movie rights are expected to sell for up to $5 million. There are so many highly talented writers in the genre… and erotica is so much more erotic when the author has a command of the language and can make you care about the characters. For examples, check out the “Beauty” trilogy written by Anne Rice under the pen name A.N. Roquelaure, or any stories by Donna George Storey or Rachel Kramer Bussel. – D.S. From LA in a 1-Star Review for “50 Shades of Grey”

I challenge reviewers of “50 Shades of Grey” to read and review a minimum of THREE books from writers who are listed in
A Jury of Her Peers: American Women Writers from Anne Bradstreet to Annie Proulx” by Elaine Showalter. This is an exceptional overview of true women’s literature. Stories of and by women with strength, intelligence, knowledge, and heart. Women who offer truly discriminating taste in literature. Only three, as there are three installments in James.

If you don’t wish to purchase her book, you may find a simple list of Women Nobel Laureates in Literature at: http://womenshistory.about.com/od/nob…

Once you have read and reviewed three of these books, I encourage you to go back and read “50 Shades” again. Then, post another review of E.L. James in light of your three chosen Nobel Laureate books.

Reviews should be posted here in this group. They may, of course, be posted to other sites, including Amazon.

Reviews to be submitted by APRIL 1, 2014. That is a book a month, certainly achievable if you are interested in this challenge.

A poll will be posted in order to choose your favorite “hate it” and “still love it” reviews. Prizes will be awarded!

And for those who really only read erotica, you can choose books by the authors suggested by D.S. From LA if you have read this post here on my website!
Are YOU sure enough of your literary assessment of James’ work to meet my challenge?
