Tah Dah! Launching “Running Wild With Books”


It’s been a long time since I’ve written a regular blog, and I’m excited to be launching “Running Wild With Books”.

You know, a lot of thought goes into what to name a blog. It did for me, anyway. I admit to being stumped for weeks. Of course, I wanted the name to be catchy in order that people can easily remember it. Also, a reflection of my goal — or more accurately, what the blog is all about and my purpose for writing it. Lastly, I didn’t want the name to be restrictive so that we can cover a wide variety of different topics here.

Yes, I sort of, kind of, stole the idea from Running Wild with Bear Grylss. I promise, however, there will be no harrowing journeys through the wilderness. Not to say we couldn’t come to a new understanding about ourselves or the world around us like a lot of the guests on his show do. But our main purpose is to always have fun.

Here are my thought on this blog. First and foremost, it’s about books.

Writing them.

Reading them.

Loving them.

Hating them.

Researching them.

Giving them away periodically through contests.

Turning them into movies or TV shows.

How they affect our lives.

Interesting facts about them.

The words that go into them.

New books.

Classic books.

Audio books.

Latest book trends.

Chatting with different authors.

Chatting about the publishing industry.

Random thoughts.

I put that last one in because I might need a little leeway in some of my posts 🙂  Mostly, I want a place where you can spend a few minutes reading about something hopefully interesting or funny or enlightening and interacting with either me or one of my guests. Comments are invited and always appreciated.

Come on, let’s have some fun!

Cathy McDavid

    Cathy, I love your list of what’ll be included in the blog! And, heck, you don’t need any leeway for including Random Thoughts because those could very well inspire other books — either by you or blog readers — so those absolutely belong on the list.

    Laurie, looking forward to more
