Book List

Last week, I shared a pretty epic-length posted that featured the nonfiction that caught my eye at BookExpo 2017 in New York. This week, I wanted to highlight some of the fiction that I got excited about at the conference. As you might expect, the pile of fiction I brought home is lot smaller than my pile [...]

Thanks, fellow book addicts, for supporting my delusional behavior. My first transgression was at our annual library book sale last week... I didn't try very hard to [...]

This weekend, the boyfriend and I are heading to my parent's cabin (soon to be retirement home) in northern Wisconsin for some family celebrations. Prepping for the first summer weekend at the lake always gets me thinking about what makes a good beach read. The kind of book that's good for a long, warm, boozy [...]

I was sure I'd be able to get a post up today with some of my highlights from the trip. But then I had to dig myself out of what felt like an incredibly deep email hole at work and cover a school board meeting that lasted until after 8:30 p.m. Suffice it to say, by [...]

The most surprising fact I learned about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg – aka Notorious RBG – this weekend is that her reputation as a fiery dissenter on the Court is a product of just the last 10 to 15 years of her tenure. For most of her storied career, RBG has been someone [...]
