My New Book Site


In January of 2010 I started a blog to list my book reading for a “100 books” challenge.  (A Madison Mom’s Book List) In October of 2012 I decided to merge my book blog, and my product review blog, and my personal blog to a new WordPress site.   (All 3 came to A Madison […]

Train – Bulletproof Picasso (music review)

Screen Shot 2014-09-04 at 3.40.37 PM

Bulletproof Picasso has a release date of September 16th, but can be pre-ordered now from iTunes or Amazon.  I participated in the Train Bulletproof Picasso album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own. About Train and Bulletproof Picasso: Train has […]

Books I’ve Read (August 2014)


14 books this month.  A pretty varied list.  A couple of children’s books.  Some romance.  Some historical/political fiction.  Some paranormal. If I had to pick a favorite book this month I think I would have to go with Butterfly Stitching by Shermin Nahid Kruse.  The writing was just beautiful… and the story one I will […]

Activation ReACT at Diggerland, USA

Since Hurricane Sandy happened here in New Jersey, my friend Elizabeth’s mind has been […]

Type-A Parent Conference 2014 (discount code)


Last year (4/2013) I attended the Type-A Advance Bootcamp in Philly.  I had been to other conferences… but when I attended the Philly mini 1 day conference I suddenly felt like I had finally found my people.  For whatever reason, I felt more at ease.  There was a smaller group, it seemed less rushed (even […]

Books I’ve Read (July 2014)


I topped myself this month.  20 books.  That’s an insane amount of books for one month.  The only reason it happened though?  I flew from NJ to CA and back twice in July.  (Which is also insane, by the way.)  Flights that are 5-6 hours (at minimum… more with layovers) certainly allow for A LOT […]
