*UPDATE*

I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Here is a quick sticky link to my Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge and Read-a-Thon.

Suddenly Sunday - New HBO Documentary


Good morning everyone.  It has been a few weeks since I have done a Suddenly Sunday post - mostly because I have been very busy - but that is not an excuse!  I am so pleased that the weather is starting to finally warm up around here and I can turn the thermostat down and hopefully have less of a heart attack when the heat bill comes around this time.  Mostly in the 40's around here (last Thursday and Friday in was in the upper 60's!) it is still better than biting cold.  Oh, and today is the first day of Spring!!!!

Yesterday I went to the Old Sturbridge Village Maple Days festival.  It was nice to get out of the apartment and Nick's parents came with us - so that was nice.  And it was really funny because his dad makes maple syrup and candy and sugar and other delicious maple confections - so he was asking all sorts of questions to the re-enactors about the old school methods of sugaring.  A good time was had all around.

Airing tomorrow night (Monday March 21st) at 9:00 PM EST - HBO will be premiering its new documentary - Triangle: Remembering the Fire.  This is set to correspond with the 100th anniversary of the fire this Friday.  I am planning on watching it - and hope you will consider it too (if you have HBO).  I am going to have a review of it up Thursday and will hopefully be able to include some clips - so for those of you that don't have HBO you can still experience it.  I this this will be more of a remembrance show as opposed to what PBS aired last month (my review here)which was more of a recreation of the event.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

Suddenly Sunday is hosted by Confessions and Ramblings of a Muse in the Fog.

  2. Thanks for mentioning this! I just set my DVR to record a rerun of it on Wed night. I'm sure it will be a great show but still incredibly sad.

  3. Heather J - you have to see it - it was so well done! I'm working on my review of it as we speak! Marie (above) and I had a chat about the show afterward and we both ended up with tears in our eyes because of this show!
