…the one with all the reasons.

New Hampshire

This week, our directive for Ten on Tuesday is Ten Reasons to Participate in Ten on Tuesday.  Ready?

1.  Good blog fodder

2.  Makes you think a bit more deeply on subjects you didn’t think you’d ever think deeply about (for example, this week’s topic…is hurting my brainz)

3.  You learn a bit more about the people who are participating.

4.  Did I mention blog fodder?  Hmmm…

5.  A good way to post a photo that you wouldn’t normally post.  ;o)  (that one up there is from R’s boy weekend last week.  That stream?  was almost underneath their cottage it was so close)

6.  It gets you talking more about subjects you normally wouldn’t talk about.

7.  Blog fodder?

8.  Sometimes the topic will get you thinking about stuff you haven’t thought about in a long time – last week’s post reminded me of the Myth books so I added them to my Goodreads queue (which is about 200+ books at this point but who’s counting?)

Okay it looks like I’m throwing in the towel at 8 – I tried, folks but this one was a hard one!

    When you mentioned the “Myth” books that reminded me that I wanted to tell you a story. Last week, when I was reading your blog and Tina’s blog, I was looking for good reading ideas for B who is almost 12. She loves fantasy and mythology so I decided to try out this Myth Adventures series. I had never heard of Robert Asprin before either. I logged on to the library consortium website to see what I could find to order and after cross referencing with Amazon, I found that I could place the fourth book on hold for an interlibrary loan. (I have to add at this point, that even though I work at the library, I’m not a huge fan of their public access system.) Anyway, I went to work and later that evening, right on top of the cart of adult books to be reshelved was Myth Adventures – A large hardcover which contains the first four books! I brought it home and B is reading it! So thanks for both the author introduction and new reading material for B!

    Love reading your Ten and was wondering where they came from originally. I am always looking for blog fodder myself, never knowing what to write, so I signed up as well. Thanks for the link!
    Emily S.’s last post …GIVEAWAY!!

  • Love your “Ten on Tuesday”. There’s a sign-up? Beautiful photo!!

  • StoryTime Sampler 3 February 2016

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    02-03-2016

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
