Another handy snippet from the conference…

I've just realised I've been blogging for a year! Happy Birthday, blog!!!


Now for my handy snippet from the conference....

Did you know that reading is a valid form of exercise?

I have it on good authority from Michelle LaForest, manager of Harlequin Mills & Boon in Sydney. Reading an exciting book stimulates adrenalin which becomes energy, which in turn eats up calories.

So several hours curled in your favourite armchair with a great book is GOOD for more than stimulating your mind and emotions! Your body gets a workout, too!

And my mother always thought I was lazy when I lay around reading…

Quote for the day...

Happyy Bloggiversary!! The time has flown really.
Reading and calories?? If it is true, I should be a sylph-like creature, fragile and almost as transparent as bone china!!!! Or, alternatively, I should be the size of a house and only my enormous reading appetite has kept me cupboard sized!!!

LOL 2Paw. I should be one of those two things, as well.

Barb, I love that quote. Maybe as well as saying 'We are great writers' (as per Jenny Crusie's instructions at conference) we should also be saying 'we are classy readers'. Heh.

Happy 1 year blogging anniversary!
