Do you have any used paperback books lying around? I certainly do, and I have a great way to share them with other people, and get new books in return!

Paperback Swap http://www.paperbackswap.com/index.php?n=7&r_by=BarbWebb13%40yahoo.com

When you enroll (free membership!) you’ll get 2 FREE book credits to get started. So you can order 2 books from other club members, right away - free of charge and have them mailed directly to you. No strings attached. No gimmicks. No spam mail.

The selection is phenomenal with almost 2 million titles available, it’s not hard to find a book… and, if you want a particular book that’s not available (for example a new release) you just put it on your wish list and you’ll be notified when it is posted.

When a member requests one of your books, you send it via media mail or first class (cost of $1.25 to $2) and in return, you get to select another book for yourself. With new paperbacks ranging between $5 to $9, and deluxe/hardcover from $10 to $30 at the bookstore or on Amazon, it’s easy to see the frugality in using Paperback Swap, too.

The Yoga Zoo Adventure: Animal Poses and Games for Little Kids by Ellen Purperhart (ISBN 0897935055) http://www.amazon.com/Yoga-Zoo-Adventure-SmartFun-Activity/dp/0897935055/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1205114107&sr=8-1

This book is designed for ages 3 to 7, but it was easy enough to engage my older children, along with our toddler, in hours of laugh-out-loud, adventurous fun.

I've recently incorporated yoga into my own life and thought it would be great for my children to join me. The Yoga Zoo Adventure offers the perfect blend of simple yoga positions and creativity, offering a fresh approach to encouraging movement, self-expression, and relaxation.

The book contains easy to follow, step-by-step, instructions for games and activities, along with stories and a special learning section on zoo animals. Not only fun to complete, it's a joy to read!

A great way to engage your children with the building blocks of a healthy lifestyle, or a fun book to pick up on a rainy day.

Hello there --

Barb has graciously allowed me a day here and there to blog with her. I'm J L Wilson, a fellow author who knows Barb from several online groups where we both have memberships. I've got a few books out in digital and a few in print, with more coming soon.

I write romantic suspense and what I call 'sexy/cozy' mysteries (short on gore, a hint of sensuality, and a touch of gray: all my heroes and heroines are in their 40s and 50s). My books all come out in download form first, then in print later.

My current book in print was written during a truly frugal time of my life, when I was unemployed for six months. I spent my time job hunting, walking at the mall to get exercise, and writing 2 books (both of which released last year). I decided to take the frustration I was feeling about job hunting and channel it into my writing. Some villains in my books look very like people I interviewed with, and a later book I wrote (after I found a job) tells about someone who was laid off and decides to get revenge (I haven't tried to sell that one yet. I hope it'll find a home next year).

Once I started getting published, I realized that in all of my books, there's a key scene that involves cooking. So I came up with recipe cards for all characters and plan to do a "Character Cookbook" someday. If you want to try some of the recipes, go to http://www.jayellwilson.com/recipes.htm. I've got a few of them there that you can print.

In the coming months, I'll be blogging occasionally about my books, the characters and their recipes, and other topics that come to mind. So stay tuned for more from me and my characters!


Recipe from J.L Wilson’s novel, FORGIVENESS (ISBN 9781419910906) http://www.cerridwenpress.com/productpage.asp?ISBN=9781419910906
James killed Penelope in their first life together… can he obtain her forgiveness in the second?

Penelope’s Muffins

2 eggs beaten
1 cup sour cream
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup creamed corn
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup yellow cornmeal
1½ tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
4 oz grated cheddar cheese
1 tbsp chopped green chili pepper

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Generously grease muffin tin. In a bowl mix the beaten eggs, sour cream, melted butter, creamed corn, and sugar. In a separate bowl mix the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, soda, and salt.

Stir the dry ingredients into the egg and cream mixture, mixing until just combined (don't over-mix). Stir in the cheese and chilies.

Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tin. Bake until the muffins spring back when touched and are golden, about 15 minutes.

BOOK REVIEW: Good Man Hunting

GOOD MAN HUNTING by Lisa Landolt
AVON, 368 Pages, ISBN 0061340390

If you were single and someone handed you a golden opportunity to land any man you wanted, what would you do? And who would you choose?

Plain Jane, "invisible" Sandra Greene gets her chance to answer as the author takes us on her wild, page-turning ride.

When Sandra attends her friends wedding, she meets several wealthy members of the Hunt Club. They offer her the opportunity to join them with the possibility of making all her marriage and romance dreams come true. After which, match-making, mayhem, miracles, make-overs, and murder abound!

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading Good Man Hunting, but by page five, I was hooked. I immediately identified with the main character, Sandra Greene, and happily followed her through her remarkable journey.

Good Man Hunting is a riveting, modern day fairy full of intrigue and captivating characters. Debut author, Lisa Landolt, has really left an impression worth following, and will be on my auto-read list.

If you are looking for a truly enjoyable, gripping read, this Cinderella story is a keeper!
