I think I can, I think I can……

I sure enjoyed this little book as a child.  My grandfather worked on the railroad for 50 years.  Not many people left can remember watching a train snag a mail bag off a post as it hurdles through the station.  In my day that rated pretty high up in excitement.

As I have struggled to get the basics of this blog established I am reminded of the Little Engine That Could.

My ultimate goal is to post reviews of pre-publication titles that I have been given the privilege reading.  Additionally I want to re-read some classics.

Wish me luck!  I am struggling.

  1. Hallo, Hallo Ms Sue! 🙂

    I am so thankful our paths have crossed – especially as your on the cusp of beginning your journey inside the book blogosphere! Our blog birthdays are quite close together, too! You began on the 28th of August and I on the 6th! How champion!? We’re only two years apart! lol

    I *love!* classic stories like The Little Engine that Could and the forementioned Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel; timeless classics and heaps of lovely memories full of joy!

    You’re quite right – if you believe you can blog, you will blog! It’s an uphill climb the first year your a book blogger but by the turn of your second year you’ll feel more confident in the ins/outs and whatnot that come along with it all! The rewards outweigh the angst and blessedly the confusion only lasts a short bit before you feel like you’ve been blogging for a heap longer than you’d think possible!

    Blessed our paths crossed — happy to say your commentary is active and alive! Wicked you have the same portal to comment as I do – giving me the flexibility to sign your blog whilst I’m in Twitter! Your linkage is looking great except you can link to your Riffle Profile if you want too.

    All in all – a good start! Cheers!

    I am wishing you not only luck but great success. Your little engine that could tickled me. I had that version but I think it is one of the books I lost in my flood waters this summer. However, yesterday after one of Joey’s tests here in Cincinnati, one of the staff members gave Joey a brand new book…which he loved when I read it to him…Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton, first published in 1937. A book is certainly a classic when it continues to entertain almost 80 years later.
