Romance and Mystery Novel Review Web Sites

With my family being such avid readers, particularly my daughter, I recently discovered two websites that can help with our reading quest. They are www.theromancereader.com and www.themysterreader.com

My local librarian had just discovered these two web sites, and was sharing information with her patrons about these two Internet addresses. As we are weekly regulars at the library, she let my family know about them. When I arrived home, I was sure to check them out.

The first one is www.theromancereader.com. My daughter, thank goodness, is not yet into these types of novels. So this site was purely for my interest.

The main purpose of the web site is to offer reviews of top romance novels. The reviews are broken down into three categories: historical, contemporary, and fantasy. Their rating system is unique, with hearts being used. Five hearts is a definite keeper, four hearts means the book is recommended, three hearts is acceptable, two means think twice, and one hearts tells the reader not to bother reading the book. They also break the books down into categories. These categories are: G for love scenes but no sex; PG for sex scenes that aren't explicit; PG 13 for a little bit more descriptive, but not yet graphic ; R for very descriptive and lots of love scenes; and NC17 for a book you wouldn't want your kids to read, or your spouse or – well you get the idea. I thought it was very unique that the reviews and ratings were …

Spider-Man 3 Weaves Another Tangled Web!

Make way all you Marvel fans, another Spider-Man has landed, and it's better than ever! With it's colorful cast of characters (including two new villains), this third volume in the now Spider-Man trilogy is sure to get your spidey senses tingling. The story follows a new chapter in the life of our favorite spider in which he has finally decided to propose to the girl of his dreams, MJ (played by Kirsten Dunst.) However, more than one obstacle stands in his way. Not only does Spider Man encounter a new villain that just may have the answers he's been searching for (Sandman), as well as being pursued by an old friend turned enemy (New Goblin), but he's also thrust into a battle with himself due to a black goo type substance that slowly leaks the good away. For once, we all get to see what it's like to have a dark spider man around, and let's face it…it's more cobwebs than roses.

There is no doubt that the acting in this movie is something of a double edged sword. Topher Grace puts on a pretty believable performance as the super villain "Venom", a black clad Spider-Man double with a mouth full of razor sharp teeth, whom is fueled by his own personal hatred for Peter Parker. However, MJ, played by Kirsten Dunst is less believable this time around. She lacks the appeal that she had in the last two movies as well as the heart. She comes off as just …

Choosing Webb's

I recently joined a friend for lunch who chose to eat at Webb's Cafe in Mildenhall. It has been years since I have eaten at Webb's, so I did not know if the food was still as good as it was years ago. As we had been out in the bitterfly cold weather conditions along with heavy rain, we both needed something warm and nourishing to build us up again. My friend had a bowl of soup and a roll. It took me longer to decide what to have, as I was tempted by the colourful salad bar and the generous portions that I saw others around me tucking into. I took a menu to our table and settled for the special offer, which was a bowl of soup with and a sandwich. The soup of the day was tomato and roasted red pepper. I opted for an egg mayonnaise sandwich, which also came with coleslaw and a small side salad. My lunch was plentiful, filling and warming, which is just what I needed on such a cold day.

Paid-to-Click Web Sites Do Not Live Up to Expectations

Paid-to-click sites have become increasingly popular in a world full of Internet income schemes. Along with paid surveys, rebate processing, and affiliate programs, paid-to-click sites have ensnared thousands of users worldwide. However, many first-time users wonder if these "too good to be true" web sites are worth the time. It's a good question with a complex answer.

Paid-to-click Web sites usually offer no more than $0.01 per click. To earn this small sum, a user must click on an ad and view the page for a designated period of time. Thirty seconds tends to be a pretty generic number, but the time an ad is viewed occasionally correlates with the amount paid. So, you click on an ad and view it for thirty seconds. You have no spent thirty minutes viewing an ad, and you earned $0.01 for it. Anyone capable of simple math can see that the numbers do not add up to a substantial income. You will more than likely spend more money on your Internet and electricity bills. Several methods for earning more money in a shorter period of time have been developed, but most of these methods are dishonest.

Like many other Internet income schemes, paid-to-click Web sites are often scams. The Web site receives money for advertisements, but refuse to pay the users for viewing the ads. Also, many of the paid-to-click Web sites have referral programs, and most sites also let you purchase referrals. Some referral packages cost hundreds of dollars. At this point, …
