After the vicious crowds of Black Friday
And the mouse shattering of Cyber Monday
You may feel like something is a miss
An area left without a sale
Forgotten among the games and clothes
What about the books?
From free to Kindle Countdowns
Every reader has a choice
Spanning reality and fantasy
Many books are on display
Just waiting to be snagged and read
Or handed to a friend
So all you readers bookmark
And all you authors join
For a day of literary fun
Where words will be on sale
To every age and interest
Read Tuesday has come again
In TWO WEEKS, it will be time for the second year of READ TUESDAY! This was a big success last year as it filled the void left by Black Friday and Cyber Monday. There was no sale that focused on books, which is what this is about. …

Read Tuesday is a Black Friday type of event just for book lovers on December 9, 2014.
Authors can participate for free. Signing up and participating is easy.
Readers and gift-givers just need to browse the Read Tuesday catalog in early December. Find the books you like here, but buy them at Amazon or Smashwords like normal. Except for saving big, of course.
To help spread the news, we have a ThunderClap promotion scheduled for the morning of December 9.
Our ThunderClap currently has a social reach of over 300,000 through 100 supporters (thank you, everyone), with 18 days left to improve these numbers. We have our sights set on a million, and we’re nearly one-third the way there.
What the ThunderClap does is announce the big Read Tuesday sale by synchronizing posts on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. It’s easy to add your support (see below).

INSPIRED BY NATURE… Nine years ago we planted five apple trees (Granny Smith, Greening, Red Rome, Cortland and Macoun) in crescent between the house and the barn here at The Farmstead. Today we harvested five bushels. No need to go to the orchard or to the market for apples this year. Wishing you a bountiful fall! ~ Bette A. Stevens

Statistics are the eternal mystery of blogging. I’ve been blogging 2 years, 9 months and I’m pretty happy with where I am these days. I’m popular enough to feel my voice is heard, but not so busy I don’t have time to answer comments and interact with the people I enjoy on the big wide web.
I keep hearing about the “cool kids,” popular bloggers with large followings. Compared to the really big blogs, I’m not even a drop in the bucket, but for my own purposes, I’m in a good place. Last week, my “followers” — whatever and whoever they are — exceeded 7,000. So — does that make me one of the cool kids?
That would be funny because never in my life have I been a cool kid. At this point, I’m no kind of kid. Senior citizen. Retired writer. Amateur photographer. I use my…
