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 →
Happy Monday! Reader, I just had the best three-day weekend. I didn't do anything exceptional; the most ambitious thing I did was get a haircut (for the first time in approximately three years). Most of the time was spent on things like filling out my taxes, bleaching my shower, and cooking. But it was so... 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...

Happy Friday! The main story where I am has been the weather - we've been close to record lows! There has been snow, ice, and negative wind chills. None of those things are weather that I am used to! Thankfully, my work has been responsible with adjusting our operating hours so that staff can travel... Continue Reading →
I almost never get my monthly wrap-up posts out early, so I guess I'm starting the year with something different! It just fit the calendar best to post this today, and I don't expect to finish anything else before Monday, so I hope you don't mind. This month was full! I got through more books...

Happy Friday! Somehow this week feels longer than some, even though Monday was a holiday. My school started back up (all online for now) on Wednesday, and we've certainly hit the ground running. Four classes while working full time is going to be a lot of work! The material looks interesting though, so I'm sure... Continue Reading →
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.
Today is Day 10 of the 12 Days of Christmas! When I started participating in this blog party, I wasn't sure if I would keep up with posting every day - and now here we are in the home stretch! I work like normal today (although I expect it to be fairly crazy), but then I have four days off work to celebrate and relax. I am looking forward to it so very much!
We're traveling back in time a few different ways with today's featured book: A Distant Melody by Sarah Sundin. This historical fiction book is set during World War 2, and is the book that introduced me to Sundin, who instantly became one of my favorite authors. Five years later I have read many more of Sundin's... Continue Reading →
