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 →
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...

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!
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).
Happy #SpelltheMonthinBooks Saturday! Here’s a little rundown of how this linkup works: The goal is 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 with books you have on hand, creating a physical bookstack, or by building... Continue Reading →
July in Oklahoma doesn't usually come with high humidity. But this is 2021, so just about anything that can happen apparently will, including humidity levels so high that even indoors it is having an impact on our books. I'm pretty sure that in June we got more rain than every other June of my life combined, and even though the temperatures are finally climbing close to their normal range for this time of year, we are not as dry as usual. If the northwest would like to send the 100+ temperatures back down to us, I wouldn't be opposed as long as it moved the humidity along and made the air feel less heavy.
Happy Friday! I'm trying something new today and participating in the Classic Remarks linkup. The host shares a prompt relating to classic books in advance, and then you write a post or comment with your response. I have mixed feelings about classic books, but it's fun to talk about them and to hear a variety of opinions! Today's prompt is an interesting question. It really got me thinking about books I have read and disliked, and what I would change if given the chance. I've kept my post relatively brief (I don't want to bore you with all the details of my opinions today!), and I invite you to consider the following prompt and share your own answer as well:
Hello and welcome back, Reader! Today's post is linking up with Sam at Taking on a World of Words for WWW Wednesday to talk about the books that are at the front of my mind this week. Even though summer classes are in full swing, the fact that I am only taking two this time (compared... Continue Reading →
