Tuesday * My Happy Day !

It’s Tuesday ! My Happy day-

Tuesday’s are changing a little – Today’s Post is my Book Blog and my love for Books.

If you follow my site you know One of the things I love is books -all kinds. And when I started Lisa * Everyday Life – I had a book page and featured lots of books. But I found as this site evolved (my word of the day) -it had clogged up the stream with promos, book tours and features. At that point I opened my Book Blog-featuring Review,Promos and Book Tours. So go over and Check it Out!

Friday’s Book Club It’s After 5 Somewhere * Book Club post featuring a drink,food and a book feature,

Lisa Book Blog @ LEL



Now – I find my self and others missing some of my book post  from here.  Today starts my new book and social post. I promise No book tours or Promo’s here. Just honest Reviews and Books that I think you might like. With the Holidays coming up Books are a great gift – and I will be featuring books for all taste and ages.

Today’s Book is a great Contemporary Romance book.  I am sure you will enjoy.


And Why Tuesday it’s Release Day for New Books !!

There is no standard, although Tuesday is fairly common since they are also tracked by Nielson. They are often on shelves before their official release date, unless there is a large advertising campaign that indicates a specific date. Friday is also a very popular day to release books.

  • PS – Yes! I am shopping today -but don’t tell.  Lisa






Tuesday * Library Time

Happy Tuesday -the last Tuesday of the month of August. Today I’am chatting about the 

Library –  History :


Library, traditionally, collection of books used for reading or study, or the building or room in which such a collection is kept. The word derives from the Latin liber, “book,” whereas a Latinized Greek word, bibliotheca, is the origin of the word for library in German, Russian, and the Romance languages.

Some of the earliest such institutions were founded in late 17th century England, such as Chetham’s Library in 1653, Innerpeffray Library in 1680 and Thomas Plume’s Library in 1704. In the American colonies, the Library Company of Philadelphia was started in 1731 by Benjamin Franklin in Philadelphia, PA.

My Story- 

I’am a Bibliophile. A person who loves books.  Yes – there is a word for it. And No cure. But one of my favorite places to go to is the Public Library. And I am sorry to say we dont have one in this town but the Library’s books are available on line in a E form. Or I can drive 20 minutes to the next town small private library. What’s nice is that all the small  libraries are tied into a much larger system -which mean I can borrow books from all over the state. As a reader and Educator I love having that option , More Books – more fun.

So go visit your Li bray today and enjoy there vast collection -what ever your interest : Cook Books,Reference Romance, News and Magazines. Also the Library has special classes Reading time and computers to use. . A Library Card can open a new world to everyone – so give it a try. If you can’t get to  the  Library you can still borrow from here.  Lisa 

Do You Use the Over Drive option with your Library ? To borrow books.

Pinterest – Are you a fan?

Happy August 1 st ! Today ‘s Theme is Pinterest

Do You use it?    What Do You Use it For? 


Pinterest is a social network that allows users to visually share, and discover new interests by posting (known as ‘pinning’ on Pinterest) images or videos to their own or others’ boards (i.e. a collection of ‘pins,’ usually with a common theme) and browsing what other users have pinned.

That being said is it a secret obsession  ( My sister) or are you a look around type. My pins are a collection of items -books i am reading,want to read, favorite crafts, food and future ideas for post. I find my self checking it a couple of times a day. It;s nice to have a place that i can say – Wait i saw that and pull up a picture or directions for something I liked.

I  Guess – I am a little of both and Today I thought – i would share my links and Maybe a few of my favorites and followers.Please drop in your link in comments and I will follow you.  Lisa

Social Media – Tuesday

Today is Tuesday ! And It’s all about Social Media –  Facebook is my focus today –

Do you like it? How much time do you spend on it? Is it personal or business?

Let me tell you a little about my path to Facebook –



I first got on Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family. My husband and I have family all over the country. And it was a quick way to say Hello or send a Birthday Wish. It also let us see the fun things our extended families where up to.

Also a great way to keep up with whats current in the world and family interest. I discovered great recipes and new crafts and found some old friends along the way. A win in my world.

Then my family moved and my son started a new school om line. I found myself spending more time on line and started a Facebook group for my son school. Now over 200 people and growing I am hitting my busy season as we get ready for school. So I am checking in all the time with the group.

Groups are a great place to get together and share ideas and information.



Then I decided to split my Personnel page from my  Blog Facebook page



Lisa s Everyday Life Facebook page

My Blog is an extension of who I am and I thought it needed its own identity  and home . Its a page where i promote what I love to do  when I am not being a Mom/ Wife – its my latest book review, or a new food find or may a new craft i’am exploring. There is some over lap but mostly what you see on the blog ends up on the page with extra content and promo from followers. I love to promote other sites,blogs and pages that peaks my interest. I also run blog hops and Promo events on my Facebook page.

Do you have a Page – I would love to follow you back . Please drop me a link.

Have something going on and need some help -drop me a message.

I check in a couple times a day so stop in  and say  Hi.

So – Yes it’s important to me. Both Personal and Business reasons.And I probably spend to much time on it but thats okay. 

Now I need to get going – I need to be Mom now.. Lisa

Check Back Tomorrow – My Craft table will be filled with new projects .

My blog story is like many others -I’am a Mom who enjoys many things- books,crafts,food and family. I had a book blog for many years and after a move home to Louisiana –  I started a new site where I could share what was happening in my life. My blog has changed  as my life  has changed.

My advice – 1) – change is good. It’s your blog do what you want. (2) Have fun- dont get bogged down in numbers  ,followers or comments. Write from the heart – always.   Lisa
