Jane and the Waterloo Map by Stephanie Barron Blog Tour + GIVEAWAY

Originally posted on Reflections of a Book Addict:
When I was first asked to join the blog tour for Jane and the Waterloo Map by Stephanie Barron, I was super excited. It’s been a while since I’ve read the other books in the Jane Austen Mysteries series, but I remember loving the idea of Jane Austen as a sleuth. It’s obvious that Jane was observant in real life, as her observations and commentary on the societal events of the day were both astute and very progressive. Therefore it’s not exactly a stretch to think that she would be observant enough to solve mysteries. From the great success that Barron has had so far, it’s clear that many other people agree with me and have loved to see Jane in this new and exciting role. This time we follow Jane as she embarks on an exciting treasure hunt that has very dangerous and real implications. (Below the book blurb and author bio are giveaway instructions so you can win your own copy!) Book Blurb: November, 1815. The…

There Is No Such Thing As Free Stuff

TANSTAAFL If there’s one thing I remember from high school economics, it’s that acronym. There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch. And I think I know why it’s stuck with me for so long – it’s true. In college, I loved getting free lanyards and water bottles and coozies (I’ve never even used a coozie) from career fairs and other campus activities. Once I got my own apartment, I often picked up furniture that was left by dumpsters and brought it home with me. I didn’t even do anything cool with it, like my friend Meg does over on her blog – her buffet and mini chest are breathtaking. I still have a hard time resisting the “free stuff” I find sitting out by the curb. But it’s not really free. How we’re paying for this free stuff Free stuff can actually be really expensive when you do the math. We pay for it with our time – picking it up, cleaning it, moving it around in our homes. Even…

DuoLingo

Starting this month, I am challenging myself to become fluent in Spanish by December. One app that I’ve found to be very helpful is DuoLingo. Before you begin, you take a test to give the app an idea for where you are at. You can also set a goal to practice for a certain amount of time daily, weekly, and so forth. The app will send a notification through your phone and email with a reminder to meet your goal. The learning activities include listening and translating, listening and typing what you hear, reading and translating, word identification, and more! It’s been great so far. Plus it’s free. If there were a section that allowed me to practice conversation skills, it would be perfect. Pizza, Netflix, and Happiness. Mei. If you have any suggestions on apps or sites worth checking out please share them by commenting below or sending them to gumblogging@gmail.com.
