Book Lovers Open Thread

This post is for you! Love books? Share why! What are you reading right now? I’ll go first I can’t remember when I haven’t loved books. Some of my earliest childhood memories are about reading books. As I grew older (still a kid though) and still obviously had way too much time on my hands, […]

The joys of reading OLD history books: Myths & Legends of the Celtic Race

What I’m reading right now, in between fiction books, is Myths and Legends of the Celtic Race by T.W. Rolleston and it’s reaffirming my love for several things: the really old books, and history books. As some of these old history books can be, I expected it to be pretty dry, but have found myself pleasantly surprised! […]

Monday Hunk Who Reads – Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves Seriously! Read on, and I’ll make a believer out of you! I was first alerted to this by seeing a bio of romance author Liz Matis and her answer to the question “Who would you prefer to go on a date with, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, or someone else?” Her answer? “Hands down, no […]

The Booker Award

The fabulous author and fellow FF&P writer Celia Breslin  has nominated me for the Booker Award. The award targets literary and book-centered blogs.

Monday Hunk Who Reads – Colin Firth

Colin Firth What? No book in the pic? Before we move on to the awesomeness that is Colin Firth, first a little housecleaning. The Monday Hunk Who Reads feature is now in a different format and schedule, due to the blog post by Roni Loren about usage of photos in blogs. Basically, it boils down […]

Monday Hunk Who Reads – Billy Crudup

Billy Crudup I simply HAD to see if this hunk was a reader after seeing him in Stage Beauty last week. He was absolutely incredible in that movie–I was literally on the edge of my seat during one of the scenes, it was so compelling. Thank you wonkomance.com for alerting me to this movie! Anyway, […]

Monday Hunk Who Reads – George Clooney

George Clooney He’s one of those guys that gets better looking as he ages, don’t you think? He didn’t use to do it for me. But anyway, since we had Noah Wyle last week, a sharp-eyed commenter spotted his co-star in ER, George Clooney, with a book and it seemed only appropriate to feature him […]

Monday Hunk Who Reads – Marlon Brando

Marlon Brando Monday Hunk Who Reads is back! I took longer off than I’d planned, but it was a very productive break. Thought I’d kick off by going retro this morning! Couldn’t find much, but here’s what I did find… In his autobiography, Brando: Songs My Mother Taught Me, he said: I had to read […]

Monday Hunk Who Reads – Nathan Fillion

Nathan Fillion Those of you who know me well may wonder why I haven’t featured Geek God Nathan Fillion before. Well, he was one of the first I looked up when I thought of this weekly feature, but I couldn’t find a picture of him holding a book other than a Richard Castle book. Fortunately my […]

Best known for his roles as Edward Ferrars in the 2008 adaptation of Sense and Sensibility, and as Matthew Crawley in iTV’s Downton Abbey, this hunk is an intellectual. The picture above is his promo pic […]
