Not your average MOMdotCOM™ topic, is it?

Well, I wanted to share with you a fun article I recently published,
All Tequilas Are Not Equal

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it (admittedly, Margaritas are one of my all-time favorite pool side drinks... when I get pool side, that is. Our creek out back might have to suffice this summer lol)

I get asked this question a lot, so I thought, hey, why not share it on my blog occasionally?

I’d also love to hear what you are reading. Though my TBR pile is quiet high, I am always looking for recommendations, so let’s have ‘em!

Here’s what I recently finished:

Query Letters that Rock by Linda Formichelli and Diana Burrell.
I just can’t resist reading books on writing - this one is a good refresher, the highlight being the reprints and analysis of query letters that sold articles.

Sex, Lies, and Vampires by Katie MacAlister.
First, love the title. Second, it’s a really great read! Not your traditional vamp story in a refreshing, intriguing way. Besides, you have to love a book that dares to tackle the topic of why vampires have bladders when everyone knows they don’t pee. Highly recommended!

The Drowning Season by Alice Hoffman.
I’m on a mission to read all of Alice Hoffman’s books and this was the next in line. Truly one of the most gifted authors of our time—her words are magic. The Drowning Season is a modern fable of epic proportions. A true keeper!

Unwrapping Mr. Wright by Michele Dunaway.
This is an oldy but goody from the Harlequin American Romance line. With twin brothers and a feisty female lead, this is a gem of a romance!

Okay, your turn… what’s on your bookshelf this week?

A daily visitor, Joanne, sent me a lovely note (thank you!) and in it asked about my motivation for posting so many goodies each day. As it’s a question I get asked often, I thought I’d publicly respond:

The MOMdotCOM blog origins stem from a desire to have supplemental material available for our Mom’s Guide readers. It continues to serve this purpose, but has also come to be our daily way of “paying” the good stuff “forward” so that everyone benefits- a positive vibe instantly added to our virtual community!

Feel free to continue to the “pay it forward” by sharing the freebies with your friends and family. Link people back to or pick and choose information to send (we’d just appreciate that if you cut and paste, that you give us a credit for the info, especially the copyrighted stuff like the articles.)

Also, if there are topics or information you’d like to see covered, always feel free to send a note or post a comment- we’ll do our best to add it!

Thanks for visiting each day. I hope that every day you read the MOMdotCOM blog that it is of benefit to you, impacts your budget and life in a positive way, and helps to add a bright spot to your day!
