An alphabet of J's favorite blogs

Z is for
I love THIS blog because:
  • a blog about nothing, and anything
  • The letter Z is used in the name 

#atozchallenge Usborne books for Children

“Peek Inside the Zoo” is from the fantastic ‘Peek Inside’ board book series, which is a great non-fiction introduction for older toddlers thru elementary age. In this book, they will ‘peek’ under leaves and behind doors to discover noisy parrots, crazy monkeys, tall giraffes and more. This series has many other themes as well, like sea, dinosaurs, farm, animal homes, bug homes, snowy places, and more!

And to everyone who commented on this blog this month!


  1. I have been to the blog. It is nice to see a blog about nothing! Randomness is nice sometimes.
    I have not read the books. It would not offend me!
    I will remember the survey!
    Zombies? I don't care one way or the other, didn't get on the television show bandwagon. I surprised myself in loving the PC game Zombie Solitaire though!

  2. Oh, wow, blogging about your TBR pile is clever. My TBR would fill the A to Z challenge a few times over and then some. A sad reflection of either my spending habits or my limited free time (or both, lol).

    Returning your A to Z visit AJ Blythe

  3. Hopefully I'll remember the survey! Great A-Z :-)

  5. An interesting idea to share posts based on the TBR pile. Really cool.

  6. You made it until the end! I think you deserve a week in bed now. To catch up on the TBR pile.

  7. Peek Inside the Zoo looks good. I will have to get it for my great-nieces. Congrats on completing the A-Z!

  8. The blog and books are new to me. Zombies are interesting foes for storytelling.

  9. I visited the blog recommended by you about nothing and anything ��.
    Good to see your TBR list in the AtoZ challenge!

  10. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. How wonderful. Z is such a great letter. I agree. I went to the library this morning to pick up a couple of books. I do so love reading. Nice to find another reader/author in blogland.

  11. Hi, I think this is my first visit to your blog. I'll be back ;-) Thanks for co-hosting!

  12. My TBR pile can't decide if it loves you or hates you! Congrats for finishing the Challenge!

  13. Blogs about nothing and anything are some of the best.
