How to Find Readers on Riffle

I like GoodReads– don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I’d rather not leave a lengthy review of a book.  And sometimes it’s hard to rate one.  Do you put an automatic 5 if you like it?  Or should you use a 4 because no book is EVER perfect.  It’s just WAY too complicated sometimes. 

Riffle gives you one option, click the heart if you like the book.  I LOVE that!  It’s simple!  And I’ll be joining the site just because of that!

Being a Lifelong Bookworm May Keep You Sharp in Old Age

My Mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s about 10 or so years ago when she was in the middle stages.  She is in the late stages now at 70, and given what I know about the signs and symptoms, I think she may have been in her mid to late 50’s for the first stage.  Having said that, genetically speaking, I have a 50-50 chance of developing the disease at an early age too.

This research is very promising to me.  I want to hold onto it and embrace it as much as I can.  Reading has always been a part of my life.  You could always find me reading, whether my nose is stuck in a Notebook, Netbook, or the good old fashioned book, magazine, or newspaper, I’m constantly thirsting for knowledge and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this study holds the gusto I desperately want it to hold.

Even Blogger Need to Practice Good Journalism

I blog about Fibromyalgia because I know that there is a lot of misinformation on the subject and it’s hard for a newly diagnosed person to weed through all of the infomercials and studies and find true facts.  As a blogger AND writer, I try very hard to practice good journalism because I want it to be right regardless of my opinion.  I can’t agree with this article more.
