The tornado today...

This is the tornado that ripped through my Long Island, NY town today.  The thing is, WE DON'T GET TORNADOES!!!  I'm kind of ticked off with my husband.  He was at work and I told him there was a tornado warning.  He said, "You'll be find".  Those are famous last words, aren't they? lol  I had my 3 little one's here with me.  All I knew was to get in the basement. Thank God, it didn't hit here but hit my son's middle school.  Not sure about damage yet.

Have you ever been in a tornado?  I have heard so many scary stories, but never thought I would be near one.

My reading dilemma

I have never NOT finished a book.  I always feel like I would hurt it's feelings if I did. lol  So now I'm reading this book that I got from Netgalley, and I've been trying to read it for about 3 weeks now and I'm not even half way through.  I have many other books to read and review and I feel like I should just move on.

Have you ever not finished a book?  What were your reasons?  Did you feel bad about it?  What if it was a review copy?  I just feel like I've given this book plenty of time to catch my attention, and it just hasn't.  I can't relate to the characters at all, I think they're all stuffy and self centered, and it just drives me crazy!!  Any advice for a newer blogger?
