Reading Corner: book 2

"Life is short.
Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly,
laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that makes you smile."__Steven Tyler

I picked up Steven Tyler's Does The Noise In My Head Bother You?
A Rock 'N' Roll Memoir, at the library and I love it!

He reminds me of myself as a teenager.
With the exception of the drugs, fame, fashion style,
and oh yes, I'm a girl.

That quote at the top there is similar to something I might have wrote myself
when I was in high school.

I was a dreamer, and I can say Steven T is one of the biggest dreamers
I have have read, even still.

From watching American Idol and The interview Oprah had with him not long
ago, I can tell that he has a huge heart!
I think that must be rare in his profession.

I have not read much of the book yet.
I have been trying to catch up with Thirty-One, and enjoying my summer.
As well as pre-reading a friends new book to help with any advice from the
readers prospective.
Last night I spent my reading hours introducing my son to the Wonderful World
of the Back To The Future Trilogy.

I have already fallen in love with this book only 2 chapters in.
I did not start Reading Corner to give a book review as many blogs I have seen.
Only to fill you in on my goings on, and offer my thoughts on it.

Let me know if any of you pick up a copy. We can discuss it in the comment section below.

I do still have my own book lingering in my thoughts.
It has been calling me the last few days.
I may return to it soon. I had first thought that it was done and it was time to
work toward the preparing for publishing side.
Now I think It needs a lot more work. If I can get started and work hard
maybe by Jan. I will be there.

What are you reading this summer?
Or are you writing instead?


  1. Hey crystal,
    I just stared a book called Alaska Twilight by Colleen Coble. I have only read a few pages but it seems like it is going to be a good book. My two jobs keep me pretty busy,so I only get to read late at night after Troy gose to sleep. I haven't been able to write very much these days. I think I might have write's blockage.

  2. I have not heard of that book Melissa.
    Is it good so far?
    Im in the same boat as you. Mostly reading at night in spare time.
    I really need to get to writing just not much time.
    Glad toi hear from you!

  3. Hey Crystal,
    I am so glad to hear from you too. Alaska Twilight is turning out to be a really good book. I did some research on the author and found out that she is a New York times number one best seller. I was hopping you could give me some tips on how to get over writes blockage.

  4. well one thing I do to get through writers block is listen to my fav music. Another thing is to just sit and write. Write anything and eventually you will hit your niche. You can do an extra side thing where you pick a character and write about them. What they like and who they are.
