Is it really already the end of September? (I know, I'm turning into one of those bloggers - sorry!) The beginning of the month, and the books I read then, feel so far away. I looked at the title of the first book and thought "was that really this month?" It may have only been... Continue Reading →
Buckle your seat belt, because we're jumping across the pond for today's virtual library visit! I suppose that might defeat the purpose of calling it a road trip, since we won't be reaching this one by car (at least not exclusively), but when I heard about this library I knew I had to feature it....

Happy first Friday of fall, Reader! Surprisingly, Oklahoma decided to at least think about following the calendar this year, and our temperatures have dropped to a blessedly more bearable average lately. Of course the temperature inside the library is another story - we're having issues with humidity, so they're super-cooling the building at night in... Continue Reading →
Today's post is brought to you by chamolille-fueled late-night homework sessions, the atmosphere of the picture book section in the library, chillhop background music, and the maple leaf-shaped lights that are strung across the top of my desk. No, this post isn't sponsored. These are just a few of the things I'm appreciating during a... 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!
Good morning, Readers! Today's book review covers a book that I read a few weeks ago, and which I have sat with the contents of ever since. It's one of those right-time books; it won't be for everyone or be a perfect fit for someone in every stage of their life, but for me and this summer, it's just right.
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...

Happy Monday, Readers! Whatever you're up to this week, I hope it starts out well for you. There's nothing particularly exciting on my schedule for this week aside from a stack of surprisingly thick juvenile fiction books. Hopefully they won't take more than two or three days each, but we'll see. I've been sitting on... Continue Reading →
September is an awfully long month to spell in books - do you think we'll make it this time, Reader? I have faith. My life is almost entirely taken up with children's literature and research planning at the moment, so I don't have a long intro for today's post. I'm basically just popping up for...

Happy Wednesday! Today's post isn't entirely bookish. I will talk about a few of my favorite books that I read this summer, but mostly this post is to share a list of the things that made this summer good. It can be easy to get caught up in the hard or disheartening things, and I... Continue Reading →
