Taking a look at the books I most wanted to read in 2021, but mostly did not get to. Have you read any of these books?
#6DegreesofSeparation is 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).
My summer classes begin tomorrow, as does my library's Summer Reading program. I'm looking forward to both; it has been very nice to catch up a bit over the past few weeks, though. Mom and I even went to the zoo last week, just because! Today in the real world I will be waxing my car, grocery shopping, and finishing up a few things that need to be wrapped up before classes restart. Here on the blog, I'm wrapping up all of my reading & related activities from the month of May!
Within a week of the end of my Spring semester I had nearly an unreasonable amount of materials checked out from the library. A large portion, however, were cookbooks or gardening books which I flipped through and soon returned (or at least set in a pile to return a few at a time, so as... 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 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 Saturday, and welcome to another Spell the Month in Books! Here's the rundown of how this linkup works: As the title implies, the goal is to try to spell the name of the current month by using the first letter of book titles (skipping articles like A, An, and The). This can be done... Continue Reading →
Are you ready to hear about ten more books I once said I wanted to read? I'm very excited about some of the books that are up today! Let's get to it!
Hello and welcome to November's Spell the Month in Books post! For this challenge, use the first letter of each book title to spell the current month (skipping articles such as A or The). Some months I try to use a certain genre, cover color, or type of book. Since this month has the daunting letter V, I'm just going to go the classic route and use books I have read and enjoyed.
Happy Monday, Readers! The first week (and weekend) of school went well overall for me last week. It made for an odd schedule, but it worked. This week my schedule is a little more normal since I will not have class over the weekend. So far the actual content has been pretty basic, which I... Continue Reading →
