A-Z PE Challenge Day 15 (O)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with a letter a day from A to Z.

Today we are celebrating the outstanding letter O!

The Blog dejour is:


No one should be surprised that I chose this blog as my letter O blog choice.  I mean there is something riveting about an orang-utan on a keyboard.  In fact I have been following this blog since I first started writing regularly on WordPress.

Orangu-tan Librarian has provided some enjoyable moments with the Shakespeare Quote Challenge. It was a real pleasure to see all those quotes each day.  I was honored to be tagged to participate.  Not only enjoyable tags and challenges but excellent book reviews, and humor are featured in the library.

With a positive review on North and South and a tip of the hat to Richard Armitage, how could I not love that review in particular.  I love how the reviews are indexed. Something I have not quite learned how to do. I am on this learning curve that doesn’t quite reach indexing. But I am proud to say my friend the Orangutan has done it by Author. I love that.

This is how the Orangutan Librarian announces 500 followers, (Congratulations on 500!)

I am literally speechless! Thank you so much for being such awesome bananaholic, monkey brains and following this blog as I ramble on about books! I can’t tell you how ecstatic, excited and extraordinarily wonderstruck it makes me to have you all on board!

Enjoy your special letter day today. Orang-Utan.  Today is all about you!

About the A-Z PE challenge.

This is a fun way to showcase blogs that you like and people that you want to know better. Come join us on the 26 day challenge!

This challenge was created by gapawa.

He came up with the A-Z People Edition challenge and it is an awesome idea. If you want to join in the fun, then just join in.There is no set date or month. Just 26 days of your choosing. Here is the link to the instructional blog you can visit

Here is a Quote from his blog explaining his motivation for this fun challenge.

” This is the people edition! So on the first day you find someone who’s screen name starts with A and you check out their blog. The idea is that you read through some of their posts, introduce yourself and give them some feedback. Then, write your post of the day and publish it, describing who the person is and your experience finding and interacting with them, what you thought of their posts. What you came away with. I think it could be fun:)”


This or That Tag



Thank you Sam @The Literary Sam for tagging me, Here is where I have to admit, I did not know what that meant when  I saw the Pingback.  I have been taught about tags now and will not be so slow on the uptake after this.  If you have not been to The literary Sam you need too.  She has a adorable baby on her about page.

Also, thanks to Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks for this really cute book tag.  This is my first of this kind. I am pretty excited to do it.

The Rules:

  • Mention the creator of the tag (Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks).
  • Thank the blogger who tagged you!
  • Choose one of the options, you don’t have to tell the reasons why you chose that but you can also do them if you want to.
  • Tag 10 other people to do this tag to spread the love! 

One: Reading on the couch or on the bed?

My  bed, because I can doze off and then pick right up reading where I left off.I can also listen to Audiobooks and use my timer.  For some reason if I am on the couch I feel like I have to sit up straight.

Two: Male main character or female main character?

I feel more understanding for the male than I do the female. As is the case of  John Thornton from North and South by Elizabeth Gaskill. I did not understand Margaret’s  negative opinion at all.

Three: Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading?

Salty snacks for me. I like to eat trail mix while I am reading. But I do love when they sneak little m&m’s in there. 🙂

Four: Trilogies or quartets?

I do not enjoy cliffhangers. Maybe I am too old and worry that I will not live to see part 2 or 3, much less 4.  Not that I am paranoid. Were you thinking I was paranoid?

Five: First person point of view or third person point of view?

I like when I know what everyone is thinking.  I believe that is third person.

Six: Reading at night or in the morning?

I tend to read mostly at night and write during the day.  Then I sleep very little 🙂

Seven: Libraries or bookstores?

I have gotten spoiled by my local library. I blew through too much money on books in 2015. What do you do when on a budget?  You get a library card!

Eight: Books that make you laugh or make you cry?

I laughed all through Playing for Keeps by R.L. Mathewson.  I do love to laugh.

Nine: Black book covers or white book covers?

Gosh, I had to run look at my book case to see which I prefer. Seems I prefer black!

Ten: Character driven or plot driven stories?

Hard question. I love character driven books so much.  But I notice that  when I find a good plot, I just dig in for the long haul.
