This week’s question:

How did you come up with your blog title and address? Does it have a special meaning for you? – Suggested by The Paperback Princess.

Keeper Bookshelf came about when I combined two other book blogs that weren’t “clicking” with me.  I knew what I wanted but it just didn’t feel right.   A book read-aholic friend had come over and as usual was looking for new to her books to read – and like good, old friends do headed for my bookcases to start browsing like I own a library.  I immediately called out “Keep away from the 4th shelf that’s my Keepers Bookshelf where all my favorites live”… and this website was born.  There was a time when readers often called a good novel that they intended to read again as a “Keeper” – and it was a phrase I had used for years.  So when it came time to finally put a new name on a website about books:  Keeper Bookshelf was my only logical choice. Fortunately, GoDaddy had the domain name available and the rest is history.

So now that the mystery of how Keeper Bookshelf got it’s name ~ This is a blog hop people, let’s get hopping for books!

This week’s question:

Have you ever been inspired by a book character to do something? Who was the character and what was it? – Suggested by  Eternity Through Pages

I can’t say “inspired to do something” but definitely been an influence on parts of my life.  There is a trilogy by Nora Roberts called Three Sisters Island  the novels are Dance Upon The Air (Nell),  Heaven and Earth  (Ripley) and Face The Fire  (Mia).  The three women in this series each touched me and taught me something.  Nell – how to stand up to my fears and live past them – Ripley – how to not be afraid to be angry or mad, and how to control the words that spill out when I am angry – and Mia – (Mia who has more shoes in her closet then she will ever wear) – how to stand tall no matter what the situation, with dignity and grace, and also how to let go of the past in order to embrace the future.  It might sound like a lot from some fictional characters – but I can definitely trace new and important reactions and decision back to this particular series.

Okay, now let’s get Blog Hopping!

This week’s question:  Have you come up with any special memes or features on your blog that you’d like people to visit more?

Not here on Keeper Bookshelf, yet.  But I did start doing a Free Monday Pick on one of my newer blogs Haunted Bookshelf (which is purely Paranormal) and am thinking of doing it here as well as on Romance Is Ageless  (which is another blog devoted to novels with heroines and heroes over the age of 30..and more)

Basically what Free Monday Pick involves is… go to Amazon (or any other site of your choice) and download one free novella on a Monday…the following Monday I review my pick and choose another one and continue the cycle.  Comments and join-in are encouraged and hoped for.  It’s a fun way for me to add good content to a new site, involve readers and find a fun new book.  I plan to start it on all three of my review book blogs in the coming weeks.  Will it take off?   Who knows?  But in the meantime, it’s just fun for me.

Now… let’s get blog hopping people!

This week’s question:

Do you have any furry friends? Share a picture!

I share an apartment with one son, two cats and at last count 37 fishies.  Do they all count?  😉

Okay, okay – so the fish are out, but here are my two cats.

Charlie- who is now 18 years old.  Our grey striped, tabby cat – who rules the house, even though his run is now more like a stroll.  He has the unblinking “My water dish is empty, Human!”  stare down to a Oscar winning performance.

Charlie

And Leia – who is about to turn 3 (but shall never outgrow her terrible 2’s stage, I’m convinced.)  Leia is an Alpha cat wannabe, but despite her size (she’s double the size of Charlie) the true ruler only needs to do a one side of the mouth snarl in Leia’s direction and she falls down and exposes her belly to be washed or scratched.  *rolls eyes*  Cats and their dynamics gotta love ’em.

So what are you waiting fo?  Here’s the Hop – get hoppin’.  🙂

This week’s question:

Do you like fantasy or realistic books?

I’m pretty equal between the two.  There is nothing like a fantasy, sci-fi or paranormal to let me escape for a few hours.  But I can escape just as easily with a contemporary novel or a how-to book.  Basically, if it has printed letters on it I will most likely read it.

If you’re a new follower I’d really prefer a Bloglovin’ follow – the button is over on the side bar 🙂  Thanks.

Now since there are no official feature blogs to check out, I’m going to follow our hosts idea of celebrating National Love Your Pets Day.  🙂

national-love-your-pet-day-february-20

 

My home is ruled by two felines.  Charlie, who is our 18 year old grey striped king of the household (very much a smaller version of Charlie in that picture of National Love Your Pet Day banner)

And I introduced Leia earlier this week on a Waiting on Wednesday post but here she is in all her Ragdoll beauty again…. my puppy-cat who loves her belly rubbed.  Leia is in her terrible 2’s right now.  She is the largest cat I’ve ever had weighing in at 32 pounds of solid muscle and fur.  And when she lands on you… You Know It.
