My nightstand and I have been having some disagreements lately as to what I want to read and what is readily available. My first trip to the library yesterday proved to be mostly stressful. I’d only been to the downtown library here, which I will certainly not be traveling to just for a book fix, but now I’m not sure I feel like driving the … Continue reading My Nightstand: June
Just a heads up to all of the Stephanie Plum fans out there – Evanovich’s newest Plum novel, Finger Lickin’ Fifteen hit bookstore shelves today. I know I am anxiously looking forward to reading the latest installment. If you are also waiting impatiently for your next Plum fix, you can satiate the cravings a tiny bit with the new online tour of The Burg – … Continue reading Finger Lickin’ Fifteen On Sale Today!
I probably have way more important things I should be doing right now, but I wanted to get this up while I had a chance and I’m guessing this is that one chance, sooo… This month I read: Here’s the Story by Maureen McCormick – Finished April 2, 2009 – This memoir was so much more than I thought it would be. She recalls not … Continue reading My Nightstand: April
This week’s Booking Through Thursday question is: Name a favorite literary couple and tell me why they are a favorite. If you cannot choose just one, that is okay too. Name as many as you like–sometimes narrowing down a list can be extremely difficult and painful. Or maybe that’s just me. Well obviously I have a couple of couples in mind. The first which comes … Continue reading BTT: A Couple Of My Favorite Couples
I don’t think I’ve done a BTT in a while, but I saw that my very bestie Ange @ Red Knows How did it this week and I was all, “Someone beat me to a meme!!!” and “Holy crikey, it’s a good one!!!!” so you know I had to stop throwing out random exclamation points and just join in already. What was the last book … Continue reading Booking Through Thursday: How I Read
I think I may have mentioned I love to read, and have loved reading since I was a young child. I may have mentioned my grandmother taking me to the local library, lying to me about the book limit that there wasn’t, and consequently me taking out 17 books at a time for years for no reason… Plowing through 17 books at a go, several … Continue reading Children’s Classics: on the wasted potential of my youth
I read on 5 Minutes for Books about a weekly book meme called Booking Through Thursday – sounds pretty perfect for me, the absolutely book obsessed and the memes look pretty short which is always nice (not to mention all the cool kids are doing it). Maybe I can type this up before MM notices I’m not paying all my attention to his truly? I … Continue reading Who would YOU trust to write YOUR life?
I keep seeing this cute meme on other blogs and it looked fun and whatnot, and you know I’m a sucker for a good meme (as you’ll find out soon when I post half a dozen more) – you know I found this meme here and that you should post it on your own blog and all that jazz… For Today… Outside my Window…is a … Continue reading Simple Woman's Daybook: Joining Yet Another Bandwagon
Have I mentioned I like books? A wee bit. Un peu. Un poco. Немного. Seriously – and yet I rarely take the opportunity to really review the books I’m reading on here – sure if you are a really devoted mommablogsalot fan you may have noticed my mini reviews on the right sidebar of my website (which are in fact a replica of the reviews … Continue reading Curse of the Spellmans: A Review
