Life Lessons from the Little Intelligent Rooster by Sojourner McConnell

My grandparents lived in the suburbs of Birmingham Alabama when I was small. Once my grandfather retired from the steel mill they relocated to Mt. Olive, Alabama. This was the town they had lived when they were children and where they both lived during the time that they met and married. My grandparents chose to get a few banty hens and one little rooster to have for their retirement home. The rooster they named Bobby, and he freely roamed the yard daily checking on his hens.

While I was engrossed in MTW This happened!

followed-blog-1000-2x

Yes! I have over 1000 followers now. I love each one of you too. I mean you took the time to follow me and in return, I follow your blogs too.  I hope you are still happy with the content of the posts.

I am still loving reviewing books. Maybe I should explain that I am not a reviewer of analytical discussion and grammar policing. I am a reviewer that tells you why I loved, liked, or tolerated a book.

If I do not like the book or found it unappealing while reading, I do not post about it. My personal philosophy is: Why should I waste my energy and time to share a book that I found terrible?  Why even clutter my friend’s brains with the mundane and bad? You can go to other sites for that. Goodreads and Amazon are where you can find bad books.  Not on The Page Turner.

I also hope that you enjoy my little misadventures with my family, writing and learning processes.  There is something freeing about sharing a vacation, a productive day of writing, or just a fun day.

Thank you all for following me.  I enjoy your pages immensely and I hope you find something entertaining about mine.

Here is a rare picture:

I was about to log out for the night, and what happened when I checked my blog? I had 500 followers to start my day off right!  Thank you all and thanks to Kazelee28 for tipping me over to 501!

500 Followers

I can not tell you how thankful I am that you wanted to follow my blog. I am touched with the kindness and friendship that has been extended by everyone I have met here. WordPress is truly a wonderful place, filled with the cream of the crop when it comes to bloggers and visitors.

Thank you all again! I hope we keep visiting each other’s blogs and finding out more and more things we have in common.  I love you all! That is truly from my heart.

Exciting Goal Reached For The Page Turner

followed-blog-100-2x I woke up this morning to wonderful news.  My little blog that I created to inspire me to write has 100 followers.

I am so touched by those that follow my blog. I hope that you like the diversity of it all. I feel like I have been given 5 stars.  You know how I love a 5 star review!

This post is mainly to say thank you and that I am so excited. My blog has allowed me to share books with people that love reading as much as I do. It has also allowed me to feel creative and mentally stimulated.

At this point all I can say is  “Drinks are on the house!  CHEERS!”

Now on to the next goal!  If you are not following The Page Turner, there is no better time than now! Onward and Upward.

Sadly I am all out of clichés.  Thanks again come back soon. If you have any book suggestions for review, let me know.
