R.I.P. Sandra Parks ~ 2005 – 2018

As always, my friend Kim brings something to my attention that just makes me question fate, my faith in humanity and the choices people make that affect so many lives..

By Hook Or By Book


Last Monday night, November 20th 13-year-old Sandra Parks was killed by a stray bullet as she watched television in her bedroom in her Milwaukee home. She said to her mother, “Mama, I’m shot.” Two years ago Sandra won third place in a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. contest for the following essay. After reading it, it left me wondering what this remarkable young girl would have gone on to accomplish if she hadn’t fallen victim to the senseless gun violence that plagues our nation. In tribute to this young life taken much too soon, I’d like to share it with you.

Discworld Readathon Month 3 – Equal Rites (Witches 1)

Hello, all!!

Apparently this catching up and getting back into the swing of things is taking longer than expected. I’m sorry I’m just posting this now, leaving you guys a whopping 4 days to read the book and get your reviews going.. But, FOUR WHOLE DAYS!! Ha ha!!

I swear that next month I will be back to my old self (ya, ya… we’ll believe it when we see it…)

Because I have ZERO concept of time and think “fashionably late” means arriving when the rest of the guests are just leaving (tip: if you ever invite me to a party, lie and say that it starts two hours before the actual start time), I’m writing this announcement post a week late. *Long sigh*

For those who don’t know, Nicole (Bookworm Drinketh) and I started up the Discworld Readathon in July (you can read about its inception here). Our plan is to read through one Discworld book every month and then post a review on the last Monday.

It’s one of those “What have I gotten myself into?” deals, but like, in a good way–with a smiley face attached to the end.

I couldn’t get to The Light Fantastic in August because A) mental health and B) drowning in ARCs, but I’m back on schedule this month (though still…
