There is even a list of worst books, on Goodreads.

Fascinating. I just this morning, typed in the words, worst books in my search engine. And, the first thing that popped up was a list from Goodreads. There, people cast votes for the worst books they had ever read. The first 10, were famous books, which garnered some famous films from them. Some of them, cult followings, for the books.

I rested a bit. I looked at the thousands of votes cast, for just a famous book that is a famous film. I sighed. I wondered how it could be? And, I wondered how a list could ever exist. But, there it was, as you can readily access as well.

I then took a sip of my blueberry tea. I then realized, that even the hot published books can have their sour days also. I ran down the next ten, as famous radio personalities, more divas, a president, and some religious books hung their hats. You look on other sites like Amazon, and you will see even some well respected classics on there. Unbelievable...

Here is at least, the link to the Goodreads one:

Being a self published author, in fairness, I have to say that at least these people made their money. The did, very well, with what they put out. Myself, I will be lucky if I even break even. But, it places my bad review I had yesterday on even ground. Till more reviews come my way.... Till next time....

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
