Don't tell my dad but his prediction came true. When I was in the fourth grade, I absolutely hated book reports! Hated them. It seemed like such a waste of time to read a book and then have to tell about it on a Sunday night when I had wasted the entire day playing. Books were my escape and I loved them, I just didn't want to write about them. Dad said maybe it was life getting me prepared to write book reports when I was big. "Nobody has that kind of a job!" I would argue. That was a long time ago and much has changed. I can type letters on a keyboard and within seconds it's delivered to my cousin in Mexico...from my phone! I remember my grandparents calling us long distance on the phone and the bill would be thirty dollars for ten minutes, never guessing years later we would be emailing all over the world for...free!
Blogging and facebook are words that weren't said in the late sixties so how was I to know years later they're in my vocabulary. Especially that I would actually be doing those things, which leads me to my father's prediction. I was accepted by Hay House Publishing to be one of their book review bloggers. My first book will be "The Shift" by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and I can't tell you how delighted I am to write book reports! The bloggers won't get paid with cash but we get a free book and who can beat that?
