LiveBinders...Dave Hester says YUUUP!!!

Okay....the Lit Maven has been trying NOT to watch Storage Wars or Storage Wars:Texas.

I just can't stop!

Why Lit Maven?

Maybe it's because Barry is so funny...with those skeleton gloves

 or there is another cool Brandi around (can never have too many of those)


Maybe it's just... that I can't help but wonder...

Why do people store so much crap!

This got me to thinking...

could there be Teacher Closet Storage Wars???

I think so!!!!  (Note: Uncle Buck is not a teacher but use your imagination.)

Until then...check out this LiveBinder...Getting Organized...

meaning don't have so much crap that you have to rent a locker to begin with!

Hey Lit Maven? ...Dave???

YUUP!  I didn't forget...


Until Next Time,
Lit Maven Out!

LiveBinders...Michael Caine Says Yes!

Saw the new Batman flick.  Loved it! 

The best line was from Alfred...

 (note this is what I remember)

 "Bruce, are you waiting or are you living?"


So I have decided to do more living.

This means expanding the Lit Maven empire. 

Whoa...Lit Maven...that's extreme....

Not that hardcore...more like this kind of empire.

Oh..Ok..Lit Maven...proceed then.


Anyway I am in the midst of figuring out how to  do the "website" thing...Domain sites..etc...

I am making some strides. Not to sure what my focus will be but this blog will continue as you all know..."I can't quit you."

I found this nifty LiveBinder on Website Creation.

Michael Caine...Lit Maven?

Oh yes...

Apparently his voice is the most impersonated!!! Even he can do it!


Until Next Time,
Lit Maven Out!

LiveBinders...Molly Ringwald Says Yes Again!

So...the Lit Maven had a houseguest for 5 DAYS!!!!

Holy Crap!!!

I know...tell me about it.

Was it Encino Man!?!?


What about Bob?

Nope! Actually it was a relative...through marriage...

ohhh.....Jane Fonda

Yes...very much like that...

but not "monster-y"...

just close quarters....

Speaking of close is a LiveBinder dedicated to Little House and the Prairie...I seriously love this show!

In the old days, everyone shared a room...YIKES!  Can you imagine....

Come to think of it...the Ingalls were different...Ma and Pa were one of the few in Walnut Grove to have a Master's Suite...


Uh huh....

...Lit Maven??...Molly Ringwald?


Talk about crazy houseguests!  In this film clip...2 sets of grandparents...1 strange exchange student and a forgotten birthday...


Until Next Time,
Lit Maven Out!

LiveBinders...Magic Mike Says Yes!

Yes. I have seen it...twice! 

Twice...Lit Maven!

Yep.  But I learned a lot.

I am sure you did.

No seriously...the first time I watched with a group of ladies and the second time, with the Husband.

If you haven't seen it yet...Magic Mike is actually a couple movie or even like a buddy movie/TV show...kinda like Entourage.

Yes there is "dancing" but the other half of the movie addresses the lifestyle and morality.

When the producers were gearing their trailers towards a possible audience, they used a gender neutral one. However as opening day approached,  they edited their most recent trailer to bringing in the ladies. Which is too bad because it is a pretty good date movie.

It got me thinking about  "judging a book by it's cover." In this trailers but in other realms it is book trailers.  Just what does your book trailer say about your book and what audience are you trying to garner....

So is a LiveBinder all about Book Trailers...

And just for fun...Step Up with "Magic Mike"...


Until Next Time,
Lit Maven Out!
