Happy Friday and first day of October! If you're viewing this post in your email or the WordPress Reader, I hope you'll stop by the blog itself at least briefly to see the seasonal banner I put up. I had a lot of fun making a handful of seasonal banners last year during some of... 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...

Someone mentioned that as of September 1, the "meteorological summer" was over. That led me on a fun Google rabbit trail of the difference between meteorological and astrological seasons, but it doesn't change the fact that here in Oklahoma the temperature is still well into the 90's and the heat index is over 100 nearly...

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).
The amount of books on my TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. To address this, I write a post featuring ten books from it approximately once a week. As I go through the list, I will evaluate each book and decide whether or not it still belongs. Perhaps as my list (hopefully) shrinks, you will find a few books to add to your own!
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 hope you had a wonderful Christmas and weekend, Readers! It certainly was an abnormal Christmas, but I still made memories that I will cherish forever, and I hope you did, too. From a virtual Secret Santa party with friends from college to a socially-distanced Christmas Eve service to relaxing on my own birthday, it's been a full and meaningful season to me, regardless of the craziness.
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!
Happy first day of winter! Usually, Oklahoma is a little slow on the uptake about season changes, but this year we got winter early (and I am not complaining). It has definitely helped me get into the Christmas spirit.
There are only twelve more days until Christmas and the excitement is real here! We're not going to talk about the craziness of this year for a while. While I'm still following all of the recommended precautions (and then some) in real life, here in the blogosphere the next twelve days are going to be nothing but merry!
