February is a weird month. It’s short, cold and hard to spell (maybe that last one is just me?). But because I didn’t have any travel plans this month, I managed to finish nine books, including one chunkster of a biography: Harford, Tim: The Undercover Economist Strikes Back (nonfiction) Janik, Erika: Marketplace of the Marvelous (nonfiction) Hoffman, Carl: Savage Harvest (nonfiction) […]
February is my least favorite month of the year. In general, I am not a fan of winter (as anyone who reads this blog for more than a week surely knows), but I have reasons to appreciate every other winter month besides February. In November, the cold weather is new and exciting. In December, there’s […]
I started January reading ALL THE BOOKS, then slowed down pretty dramatically at the end of the month. After finishing five books in seven days, I only finished two for the entire rest of the month. I’m not to worried about it though, since I think the quality of the books I finished was pretty […]
Welcome to the first official week of Nonfiction November, a month-long celebration of nonfiction I’m co-hosting with Leslie of Regular Rumination! Throughout the month, we’ll be reading and writing about nonfiction, and encouraging other readers to join us through a series of post topics. The first topic should add a ton of books to your […]
As a brief kickoff to Nonfiction November, I thought I’d share a couple of lists — nonfiction I’ve read but not reviewed so far this year, and nonfiction I’m thinking about reading this month. Read But Unreviewed When I went to start putting this list together, I was worried that it was going to be […]
On Sunday morning, my sister Jenny and I were getting ready to go out and grab breakfast when she noticed an announcement for Half Price Books’ yearly clearance sale — all books $3 or under. We’re both big fans of Half Price Books (a buy and sell used books chain), so adjusting our plans to […]
Friends, I can’t seem to write a book review to save my life. I’m not sure what the deal is, but in the spirit of low-stress blogging I’m trying to let it bug me too much and just go with the flow (easier said than done… but whatever).
September felt like a pretty slow reading month, but I ended up finishing six books (only slightly below average for me). I think the reason it felt so slow is that I finished four books* in the first week, then only two books for the entire rest of the month.
Earlier this week I stumbled across the A to Z Survey on Megan’s (Leafing Through Life) blog, and it looked like fun. The survey is the brainchild of Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner, so thanks for coming up with this idea. Happy Friday, everyone! Author you’ve read the most books from: I think this is a […]
Yesterday I had the pleasure of guest posting for fellow blogger and pen pal Julie over at JulzReads. Julie is currently lakeside in Wisconsin celebrating her 10 year anniversary with her hubby — she asked several bloggers to share their bookshelves while she was gone. You can get a sneak peek at one of my […]
