About CKBooksblog

For some reason I am very excited about setting up this blog. I can’t tell you why, I haven’t figured that out yet, but I know it’ s true because I haven’t been able to get it off my mind since I began setting it up a few days ago. It’s definitely a learning experience, and I’ve got a lot yet to learn, but I figure I have the time (here and there). As they say “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” {That’s what they say, isn’t it? I’ve been known for misquotes on occasion, some on purpose, some not!}. I want to give a very unsolicited plug to wordpress here. It has made setting up this site quite easy for a middle-aged computer novice, and I thank them for that.

Anyway, here I am and here is where I’ll stay, for a while anyway (ah – another quote, I think. Anyone know where that one comes from?). As I mention in my “about me” page. I have just recently entered the social media pool – or is it an ocean – and thanks to Alissa Gauger, my friend, I am not drowning! [I have to make another unsolicited plug here – Alissa is a truly a skilled coach. I have worked closely with her on different projects and over time have learned of her God-given gifts. Beside, she a glass half full kind of girl – just my style!]. But what I have found in my media socializing so far is that twitter and facebook don’t give a verbose person such as myself enough room to put down all my thoughts. Then Voila! I am introduced to blogging by a stranger on a tweet.

As the header on my blog says, I’ll be talking about books, reading, writing, and generally things that come into my head. My subheading, “while trying not to take myself to seriously.” I think that’s one of those very important keys to life: don’t take yourself, or anyone else for that matter, too seriously. I don’t think life isn’t supposed to be too serious. If that weren’t the case, why would God have invented the mirror!

    Hey- really enjoyed your latest post:) Hope you check out my debut novel, THE WAITING ROOM- it’d be amazing to read your thoughts on it! Love connecting with fellow readers and bloggers:)

    • Hello Alysah – I’d be happy to read it. I have a novel I just started but can read it after I am done with that. Can you send me a epub or pdf?
      I’m at christinekeleny@yahoo.com.
      Of course, I’ll post an honest review on my site, and any other site you like. I like helping fellow writers and bloggers!
      Good luck with the book!

  2. Happy you are here! Thanks for following!

  3. Hey Christine! Can I interest you in my audiobook? It’s about a struggling artist who gets a lifetime commission, but discovers his perfect patron has ulterior motives. It’s very different, it’s very fun, it’s very free. My wordpress site has all the details.

  4. It’s good to meet you! 🙂

Let me know what you think!
