Product Description

Product Description

  • An irrepressible, reborn spinster who embraces life and modern technology in her own unique way.

  • A blogging dog who tries to explain things he doesn't understand.

  • And a story you're not going to believe.


Em is trying to write a pun-ridden, murder mystery, Regency romance while handling a minor obsession over some song lyrics and her favorite singer, discovering the Truths of the Universe, and dealing with a dog who blabs all.  Her blogging dog, Big M, spills all her secrets, explains things he doesn't really understand, and takes over her obsession just as she recovers from it.
 

Written as a series of alternating blog posts, Book of Blognots, Not Blogs is a zigzagging romp through the minds of a crazy lady and her blogging dog.  It embraces the mundane, simplifies the profound, and exalts the absurd.

About the Author

Lee Sinclair has spent most of her life moving. After growing up in the Northeast, she moved to various places in the Southwest, the Midwest, Canada, and Germany. She is currently living in the Northwest where she hopes to remain long enough to acquire some moss. Perhaps the room full of books she's accumulated but hasn't had a chance to read yet, garage full of tools she doesn't know how to use, and yard full of weeds that need to be pulled will be enough to keep her anchored there for the foreseeable future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Caution: Serious Chuckles Ahead 24 April 2010
By barbara silkstone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was intrigued with the discussions the author posted on the Kindle forums. As I have a degree in Subversive Humor from the nuns at the School of Our Ladies of the Perpetual Wooden Ruler, I felt compelled to see what all this hidden-author stuff was about. Halfway into the book my neighbors called in a complaint as there was too much laughter coming from my house. It was embarrassing, as I was home alone reading Blognot. Lee Sinclair is demented in a pleasing, very funny way. The book is loaded with funny one-liners and quotable sleeper-jokes. I really enjoyed it. For someone who is not keen on blogs, Lee Sinclair's book made a convert out of me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the blog reader as well as the blognot reader 10 Nov 2009
By Elise H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Sinclair intertwines the serious with the funny by alternating between a silly story and thoughts about life. The book is a series of blog (or blognot) entries written by Big m (dog) and em (human). It's great how the author combines thought provoking entries with humor because sometimes we all tend to take life a bit too seriously. An easy read that would make a great gift.

4.0 out of 5 stars A crazy little old lady ... (lol) 23 April 2010
By Ed Swartley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"That puts me back to the problem of trying to figure out who I am and what I want. Right now, I'm a crazy lol who's writing a book about being crazy, which really seemed like the right thing to do when I started it." -- "em" from Book of Blognots, Not Blogs

Lee Sinclair has created a tidy, if lonely, world in her first published book. And it works; it's a world worth inhabiting for the time spent immersed in her scraggy, out-of-control web of existence.

Obsessed with dog-drool, Chris Isaak and questions of self-esteem, Ms. Sinclair paints an elegant portrait of a middle-aged divorcee (a "born-again spinster," in her words) and her dog "Big M" ... along with the baffling array of fancifully monikered misfits that constitute her supporting cast.

By appearances, "Blognots" is semi-autobiographical, a book worth noting if Ms. Sinclair is, indeed, just a crazy lol (not to be confused with the online shorthand for "laughing out loud," which her book inspires at times). That, sadly, might mean that's all there is ... an amusing one-shot wonder penned by a one-legged bird with two broken wings.

However, if the real Lee Sinclair is a self-confident, dog-hating mother of five (or a 6-foot-6 hulk with a two-day growth, scars and tattoos), the creation of "em" and "Big M" borders on genius and leaves the reader anxiously awaiting the characters populating some new and different literary fireside.

I'm rooting for the latter. Being a bit dotty myself, like the irrepressible em, I don't remember my age most of the time, because it keeps changing every year. I'll need a new Sinclair story every year or so to help pass the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun book by new author, highly recommended 5 May 2010
By kindle addict - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a humorous book filled with plays on words and great one-liners but which also delves into complex, thoughtful issues. The concept of this book alone is funny. The protagonist is em, a self-proclaimed crazy little old lady. She is disorganized, easily distracted, flighty, and quirky. She has no musicality or rhythm but is obsessed with Chris Isaak's music and writes lyrics for his songs "just in case" she runs into him. She loves her dog, Big M; em and Big M alternate blogging on e's internet site where she is writing a comedic mystery story, actually a play, filled with bumbling, offbeat characters, thefts, and murders. As she is writing the play, she gets sidetracked (easily) with life questions. She examines self trust, self-worth, self-image, the purpose of her life and if every life even has a purpose. She considers balance and change in life as well as separateness versus connectedness.

This author originally got my attention on the Kindle Books forum where her sense of playful wit in her interactions with other authors made for a delightful thread. I decided I liked her sense of humor and friendliness with authors and readers so I bought and read her book. It was a light, fun, easy read which was well-written and well-formatted. It held my interest, made me laugh often, and made me think sometimes. It made me want to read more by Lee Sinclair, and I hope she is working on a new release.

4.0 out of 5 stars truly LOL funny. not to be confused with crazy LOL 21 May 2010
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this book. The author really did break all the rules and make up new ones and break those too. I had to stop reading at night like I usually do, because I kept my husband awake with my laughter. :) The 99 cents I spent on this book was well worth it. $10 would have even been worth it. considering buying the paperback to give to a friend. :)
