Random Thought: Question of the Day!


In one of my many Goodreads groups the "Question of the Day" grabbed my attention.  Normally, I don't answer them, but this one intrigued me, and I did respond.  I'd love to hear what you have to say on the subject.  Let us know here at The Things You Can Read.


Question of the Day!     
Have you ever found a character or book that shares your name?    


Here is my answer:
Bon Ton Burlesquers, 1898.

Cynthia Steps Out
by
Publisher: Harcourt, Brace & Company, 1931 
  
Summary:
Cynthia certainly does step out -- from an exciting cruise she visits Paris, Brittany, Siena, Venice, among others! But don't think that this will be a dry travel recitation - it's full of fun and mystery.

Additional Thoughts:

Just as my namesake in Cynthia Steps Out, I sure have stepped out since April 19, 2006, to be sure, I've done more than step out, I've accomplished so many things on my "LIFE" TO DO LIST I never thought I'd ever achieve. The biggest accomplishments on my now rather tattered list are my three children. A hugmonous THANK YOU to "YOU WHO CAN NOT/WILL NOT BE NAMED" for allowing me the opportunity to be free, thereby, allowing for my achievement of my biggest desire in life-Motherhood!
 
I thought this questions was particularly appropriate today, since it's my birthday, so Happy Birthday to ME!


Happy Reading!
The Things You Can Read!
Believe In Truth, Beauty, Freedom, Love, and the Power of Books!
