As many of you may know, I am no longer a New Yorker, so please check out my new blog A Library of My Own. If you are just reading Life and Times, you are missing out. Thanks!

Hello from Kentucky - And a Winner!

Hello everyone!

Sorry I've been a bit lax in my posts lately. Right now I am sitting on a friend's porch in the sun, cows are next door mooing away, dogs are on long leashes staring at the cows, and I'm enjoying a nice cup of coffee. Quite different from the New York City life.

After doing a bit of searching, it looks like we found a place to rent for a while and will be moving in May 1st. I can't wait to show you all photos of our new place. Hint: There is a fireplace and a tree growing in the middle of the porch. Too cool.

What am I reading? It's been slow but steady and I'm loving this book called The Transformation of Bartholomew Fortuno. It takes place in New York City in Barnum's (yep, the circus Barnum) Museum. Bartholomew is "the world's skinniest man" and his friends are all other other interesting characters living and working in the museum. It comes out this summer.
But my main news is to finally tell you all (or ya'll) the winner of the book Raven Stole the Moon by Garth Stein.

Without further ado, the winner is:

Congratulations!! I'll send you an email right now for your snail mail address.

Thanks everyone for entering! I have a couple more giveaways lined up and will be posting some fun Kentucky pictures (including one of Charlie Dog barking at the cows).


  1. I hope the transition is going well! Enjoying the weather?

  2. I'm pleased to hear you have found a nice place to rent.
    I don't envy you having to make an interstate move though.
    Good luck with it all!

  3. Welcome to the south! The weather is amazing right now. Hope the move wasn't painful.

  4. Welcome to Kentucky! I'm not too familiar with the area where you'll be,though, as I'm closer to the eastern part of the state,almost in the mountains. ~I do remember visiting Mammoth Cave once as child:)
