Wiped Out Wednesday....

Everyone has a clever catchy name for their Wednesday posts, so I thought I'd give mine a name...yup, Wiped Out Wednesday ~ I'm bushed, beat, pooped, exhausted, plum tuckered out...Wednesdays are really my Thursdays as I do not work on Fridays (did ya get all that??) and this week has kicked my butt!

I was browsing online earlier and saw the news release for the new Kindle, now I know that a lot of people use this little gadget and the other reader that is now out on the market and I think that that is great. But, it's really not for me, I love the thrill of going to the book store & yes, it is a thrill for me ~ BOOKS are my passion (they rank right up there with new clothes, shoes, handbags...) really I love books. I love to touch them, look at them, run my hands over the cover, but most of all I love to curl up with a good book and get lost in the story & I so enjoying turning the pages, especially when I am reading a great mystery or a ghost story BOO! So I don't think I'll be investing in a Kindle any time in the near future.

Before I leave you the answers to the Egyptian Trivia questions....

1. Hatshepsut

2. Hieroglyphics

3. Isis

4. Ra

5. Wax cones on their heads

6. Ankh

7. Grey Hound

8. Cat

9. Flute

10. Old Kingdom 4th Dynasty, built by Kufu

One more interesting fact & then I'll let you go...did you know that the Great Pyramid is the only one of the Seven Wonders of The Ancient World still standing?

Until tomorrow, Be Safe & God Bless. Please keep praying it really works!


  1. Tracy has one of those electronic book hickies and love it! Not for me either! I don't want to look at that screen! I love books and don't read nearly enough!

    Enjoy your evening, get you some rest my friend! Tomorrow is your Friday:)


  2. I love curling up with a good book. I've been known to print out e-books that I've gotten free just so I can have something in my hand.

    We've built up quite the library of books which our military movers just love. ;) lol!

  3. I'm with you! Don't want to have electronic reading too!!! doh...Give me the book. Some people argue this same thing about the lost art of writing notes and letters to people. Now we just type off an email Thank You, or hello note...JUST NOT the same...
    So much more personal... and there's something about reading those last two lines at the bottom of a page and turning that page like lightning to catch the next part, it's so captivating...You said it! can carry a book with you anywhere, pick it back up and start reading at the drop of a hat...can't always do that in the electronic world!! :-)
    Hope your Thursday goes fast and you have a great TGIF!!!! Hugs.
