Giveaway: Admission by By Jean Hanff Korelitz

Posted in My Past Giveaways  | 23 Comments

Thanks to Valerie Russo of Hachette Books I am giving away up to 3 copies of this book.

Book Description:

“Admissions. Admission. Aren’t there two sides to the word? And two opposing sides…It’s what we let in, but it’s also what we let out.”

For years, 38-year-old Portia Nathan has avoided the past, hiding behind her busy (and sometimes punishing) career as a Princeton University admissions officer and her dependable domestic life. Her reluctance to confront the truth is suddenly overwhelmed by the resurfacing of a life-altering decision, and Portia is faced with an extraordinary test. Just as thousands of the nation’s brightest students await her decision regarding their academic admission, so too must Portia decide whether to make her own ultimate admission.

Admission is at once a fascinating look at the complex college admissions process and an emotional examination of what happens when the secrets of the past return and shake a woman’s life to its core.

National Poetry Month: The Hunt by Teddy Rose

Posted by Teddyrose@1 on April 29, 2010
Posted in Uncategorized  | 5 Comments

I admit, I have never been a big poetry fan.  I use to read and write a bit when I was in High school but that is about it.  However, since it’s National Poetry Month in the U.S.A, I though I would post a poem that I wrote in high school.  Please try not to laugh.  It is a cause I still beleive it today, Animal Rights.
The Hunt 
She runs and runs with fear in her eyes-
Those hound dogs coming near and near,
The mean old hunters with their cheery bright clothes.
A baby fawn hears the shot,
Hears the hunters running to get their catch.
A big puddle is found by the deer;
It has not rained for weeks.
A hunter is thirsty and takes a sip.
It’s salty so he spits it out,
Not understanding why.
He doesn’t know the mother’s child was there.
Does he even care?
