Rudi Jr.'s Book Picks

I'd like to introduce you to my son. We'll call him Rudi Jr. That's not his real name but he's using it here. Rudi Jr. will be posting his picks for great YA/Teen and Children's books. He might also add a random post here and there, possibly a poem or short story.
Rudi Jr. loves stories as much as I do and I think he'll have some great advice on what to look for on your next trip to the library or bookstore! Look for Rudi's picks in the sidebar under "Rudi Jr.'s Book Nook" or anywhere on this blog where you see Zeus. :)

Unusual Home for Books

How cool is this? I would have loved to have this as a young girl. Not only is it a super cool bookshelf, it's also a hideout or fort. You could have your bed behind it or a giant beanbag chair where you could get comfy and read.

I'm not sure anymore where I found this pic but it was somewhere on the Internet while searching the word "books." I'll come back and post a link if I ever find its origins.

Update and Plans

Call me insane, but I have five blogs and several other personal journal/diaries set up online and I just want to create more. I'd like to just create one where I can put everything but I haven't found a free version of anything that has been just right to do that. Oh, I could probably do it but it wouldn't look or function the way I want it to. Ah, well. I just started another blog about all things paranormal. I'll post about it more when it's up and running.

Here at Rudigirl's Book World, I have many things in store. Hopefully, this weekend, I can implement some of those ideas. Those of us who love books also love bookstores and libraries so I plan to feature a different one each week and tag or categorize them for future searches. That's all I'm revealing for now. ;)

The contest winner for the Texty Ladies Monday Mix Contest has been posted so please check out the winner. I can't wait for next week's contest!

That's it for now. Until next time...

Writing Contest

I promise this blog will not be my pimpin' place for all things Texty Ladies! But, I must let you know about one thing:

My Texty Ladies blog is now holding a weekly contest in the Monday Mix. We post a picture and ask that people write about it using 200 words or less. It can be in the form of a song, poem, short story or whatever you like. On Wednesday, we’ll post the selected winner on our Home Page and also on our Monday Mix Winners Hall of Fame page. The winners will receive a little something from the Texty Ladies as well. Said “little something” will be mentioned at a later date as it is not yet ready.

I hope you’ll go to Texty Ladies to get more details and submit an entry. I can’t wait to read it!

"One Night With You" Contest!

My friend Jane E. Jones is running a contest at our Texty Ladies blog. She's giving away a free copy of her newly published ebook, "One Night With You". It is available now at The Wild Rose Press under the Scarlet Rose line. All you need to do is watch her book trailer and comment on that post by the end of Monday, June 9th. A winner will be drawn Tuesday, June 10th.

Today's post at TL is Jane's interview with erotic romance author, and self-described romantic heretic, Rob Graham. He's an interesting guy so you should check it out!
