Hello, Reader! There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding what it means to be a librarian and what is required to get a library science degree. Even within the bookish community, it can be easy to assume that what you see is all there is when actually there is a lot more work, study, and... Continue Reading →
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...

It's one thing to set goals about reading, to say "I want to read more" or "this year I will read X number of books." It's another to know where to start and actually achieve your reading goals. My library knows that it can be overwhelming to look at or even just think about all of the books out there, and not know which to choose to read. They also wanted to encourage adults to read more, but to do it in a fun way. From this context the Winter Book Bingo Reading Challenge was born!
January is a month of new beginnings, goal setting, and optimism. This year, I put so much effort into crafting my year-long goals (discussed in this post) that I almost forgot to share my month-specific goals, too! It's a good thing I have gotten into a habit of outlining my posts a few weeks in... Continue Reading →
I love Yarn Along days! I have a few little things to share this time. Mostly, I've made small things out of leftover yarn in an attempt to clean out my stash so that I can buy new yarn for my next projects (which I am currently planning and getting very excited about!).
Happy New Year, Readers! I hope 2021 started well for you, and continues to improve throughout its duration. The end of 2020 brought one more curve ball, sending myself and all of my branch colleagues into a ten-day quarantine. It was a shock to me and is an uncomfortable reality, but I am happy to...

Happy New Year, Readers! If you celebrated or are celebrating today, I hope you have a wonderful and safe time! I'm starting the year out with a double linkup post: today I am linking up with Hoarding Books for First Line Friday and with Elza Kinde for the #NewYearsReads2021 linkup. This challenge has different photo prompts and questions to answer each day. I don't think I will answer all of them, but I plan to work in a few.
It's finally here - the last day of 2020. I know a lot of people are really looking forward to today and the year that starts tomorrow, but honestly, I don't have strong feelings about it. I'm excited to start working on new goals and to see what the year brings, though. But before we can start working on next year's plans, it's time to wrap up this month and the Literary Christmas Reading Challenge.
I recently saw another blogger do this kind of post, and for the life of me I now can't figure out who it was! Basically, you share images of the covers of different editions of books and say which one you like best. Since Christmas books tend to have some of the most beautiful covers, I thought it would be fun to see so many cozy covers in one post!
In case you're counting, there are now 11 days until Christmas! Are you close to ready? I have bought everything that I need to, decorated my apartment, helped my parents decorate their house, and made...four Christmas music playlists, so I'm in good shape! There are still several things to be done, but I think I will able to accomplish everything at an enjoyable pace.
