The busyness of Christmas has now passed, and I have been blessed with two weeks of rest, including a good few hours of very joyful reading.
I stepped out of my usual self help and travel genres, and read a couple of excellent crime thrillers, an inspiring novel, a collection of short stories and an illustrated storybook about a little black cat called Charm.
An added bonus was the Amazon Kindle sales, where I bagged some great discounted books. A number of them were FREE!
Being a newly published author, I now realise the importance of good book reviews on Amazon, Goodreads…
Reviewing books is quite new to me; the first book I ever reviewed was my blogging friend Jacqueline Oby Ikocha’s beautiful book of poetry “Out of the Silent Breathe”
I am enjoying this new reading and reviewing journey…
Sadly, my body has developed a chest infection. Craving healing food, I made a giant pot of my blogging friend Sumith’s excellent Dal Chawal, which is packed with revitalising ingredients:
Please pop over to his blog, and you too will be inspired by his beautiful culinary creations.
I did not include a photograph of my own Dal efforts as they could never match Sumith’s stunning photographs!
Last but not least, I ended my first ten months of blogging on a high. At 11 am on 31st December, my blog notched up 10,000 likes. Many thanks to all my followers; I truly appreciate your support.
Wishing you all a blessed 2017.
