Truthful Tuesday — Reading is Fundamental II

Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts, and this week Frank continues his books and reading theme. He wants to know…

1. Are there any books that you can read over and over again, and never seem to tire of?

I’ve read Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy twice, once while in college and a second time when I was in my fifties. I may consider going back to the Middle Earth a third time.

2. Have any of your favorite authors written any books that you just didn’t care for?

I read Frank Herbert’s original Dune Trilogy, but after reading two other Dune books, I stopped reading any further Dune books as I found them to be tedious.

3. When it comes books, do you prefer reading fiction or non-fiction? The genre is unimportant.

I prefer fiction, but well-written non-fiction can be a welcomed change every once in a while.

Getting Ready for BATZAP

Today is March 30th, and that means that the 2021 Blogging from A to Z challenge, which I have dubbed “BATZAP,” starts on Thursday. I know a few weeks ago, in my A to Z theme reveal post, I said that I didn’t select a specific theme because I wanted to be spontaneous and didn’t know what the hell I would be posting for this challenge until that same day.

Well, after giving it some thought, I changed my mind. I have come up with a theme and that theme is television shows. That’s right. I’m going to focus on an alphabetical listing of TV shows throughout the month of April.

I will be publishing my BATZAP posts each day at 6:00 am my time (Pacific time USA). Also, starting on Wednesday April 7th, and for the three remaining Wednesdays in the month, I will be posting repeats of my Fandango’s Provocative Question prompts at 3:00 am my time. I will return with new FPQs in May.

I’m excited about BATZAP and I look forward to reading your BATZAP posts this coming month.

FOWC with Fandango — Slight

FOWCWelcome to March 30, 2021 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “slight.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
