To me, it feels like August was three separate seasons all in itself: summer classes wrapped up, then there were a few weeks of resetting, followed by the start of the fall semester. In the last two weeks or so the weather finally became what I expect in summer: triple-digit heat and occasional storms but... Continue Reading →
Today I want to do something a little different, while still writing a bookishly fun post. The idea for this post started as a Monday Mini about the music I listen to while reading and studying, but I think it will be even more fun to hear from you!
It's a habit of mine to share a little about the classes I am taking each semester as I pursue an MLS degree, and the fall semester started Monday. Usually, I have a pretty good grasp from the beginning on how each class will go. This semester, however, is a little less structured than previous... Continue Reading →
It has become apparent that my TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. Therefore, I have decided to do a post featuring ten books from it approximately every other week. As I go through the list, I will evaluate each book and decide whether or not it still belongs. Who knows, perhaps as my list (hopefully) shrinks, you will find a few books to add to your own!
Today I'm reviewing a truly amazing science fiction book that took me by surprise in the best way possible.
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. The three W’s stand for the following questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? To participate, make a post or comment answering the three questions, link up to the host (Sam)’s post, and check out what others are reading and talking about! I typically participate once a month, approximately in the middle of the month, as a halfway check-in on my monthly reading goals.
Happy Monday, Readers! WordPress has informed me that Saturday's post was my 500th post on this blog. It's hard to believe that in approximately three and a half years I've made 500 posts. To commemorate, I'd like to share a few highlights with you. 500 highlights would be a bit much, so below are 5... Continue Reading →
First Line Friday is a weekly linkup hosted at Hoarding Books. To participate, share the first line of a book of your choice, add the link to the linkup on the host’s page, and check out what others are reading and sharing!
Today's post participates in #6DegreesofSeparation hosted by Kate at booksaremyfavouriteandbest. The gist is that everyone starts with the same book, then finds another book that relates to it somehow, then one that relates to the second, until you’ve got a chain of six additional books. It’s a twist on the theory that every person on earth can somehow be connected to any other person in six or fewer steps, and provides an opportunity to talk about random books we love (or don’t).
