Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

No Has Friends Like Eeyore

Walt Disney's Winnie the Pooh: Eeyore, Be Happy! (a Little Golden Book) - Don Ferguson
The characters of One Hundred Acres are showing each other what they enjoy about living to cheer their friend Eeyore up.


I have always felt a kinship with Eeyore, even though I have never read the original Winnie The Pooh books. Eeyore tends always be depressed, he still tried to do what each friend found happy in their own life to see if it made him happy.


The fact that Eeyore is always sad does make me sad as well. He deserves at least something that gives him a smile.  Which I have seen this little donkey do in the cartoons.  The books I have read... not so much.


I think any story with Eeyore is a big bonus.  Eeyore brings a little realism by showing everyone that feelings are experienced differently by others.
