I didn't realize when I drafted this post that it would go out on MLK Day. While I don't have an entire worthy tribute in me, I do want to take a minute to acknowledge this day before moving on to the bulk of my post. In the midst of the current political chaos, it is comforting to read and remember the hopeful words of Dr. King. Perhaps someday we will get closer to his dream.
Today's post is a kind that I rarely write. I'm going to share some thoughts I've been mulling over the past few days and just speaking from my heart. This post isn't about books, but I believe it is more important than more of the posts I write. Grab your cup of coffee (mine is iced, despite the season), settle into your couch, and read this post as you would listen to a good friend because that is how I am writing this post: as if to a friend who asked "What's on your mind?"

Boo! It's been a few minutes since I joined in on a First Line Friday. I'm looking forward to hopping to all the other participating blogs, and to talking about Murder Simply Brewed, which I am enjoying more than I expected.
Hey Readers! This post is going to be pretty different from my usual posts. Rather than highlighting a book or the books that I am reading, today I want to tell you about the Five Fall Favorites Blog Party! Five Fall Favorites is an annual blog hop hosted at Read Another Page. I stumbled across... Continue Reading →
It has become apparent that 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,... Continue Reading →
Hey there Readers! Are you a list-maker like me? Do things make more sense when they're laid out in an orderly manner? If so, when do you make your lists? Personally, I like to make one list of goals for the month during the first week of the month, and then I have one other... Continue Reading →
July is officially over, and I hope that the extreme Summer heat will soon follow suit. I know we probably still have another month of 90 and 100° heat, but I am dreaming of the coming days when I will be able to comfortably eat lunch in my car with the windows down, and drive... Continue Reading →
