I have a feeling that "March Madness" will be the perfect words to describe the atmosphere of this next month. But this sort of madness has nothing to do with sports. Instead, I'll be mad with school and with preparing for my big test at the end of the month...which I have to pass to… Continue reading Celebrate National Reading Month!
Awhile back, I wrote a guest post for the Nerdy Book Club blog about some of my favorite books to read for story time at the library. Unfortunately, I could only list the top ten books, but there are a lot more that I'm going to share with you today. Since writing my guest post,… Continue reading My Ultimate List of Children’s Books
Guys, I'm a little (or a lot) excited today because I wrote a guest post--my very first guest post--for the Nerdy Book Club blog, and it was published TODAY! It's so exciting to see my name posted in places other than on my blog or on the top of school assignments. The blog I wrote… Continue reading My First Guest Post! ~Nerdy Book Club
*** When I was younger, I shared a room with an older sister who must have had at least two shelves full of books. I was jealous, since I had only a small stack of books which I lined up on my desk. My goal was to have as many books as her one day.… Continue reading Precious books and a glorious afternoon
So, here's the deal. I've been very neglectful of my blog lately, but with very good excuses. #1: My sister's wedding. As I mentioned in my last post, my sister had a wedding this summer, and who's to think about blogging with a wedding approaching? #2: Summer Reading Program at the library: Anyone working in… Continue reading Taking my Reading Challenges Seriously
I went into the 2015 year without a reading plan. At least two books a month--that was my goal (which I met, by the way 🙂 ). As far as what I was going to read, I had no idea. I read various random books that I had never intended to read, while my to-read… Continue reading Shortening a to-read list (if it’s even possible)
Back in January and February, I reread The Lord of the Rings, and I kept discovering fabulous quotes by or about the wonderful Samwise Gamgee which made me like him even more. If you've read the books or seen the movies, you'll already know that Sam is very important to the great quest and, basically, Frodo… Continue reading Even MORE reasons to like Samwise Gamgee
Every once in a while, I'll read a book and have to tell everyone about it--whether they want to listen or not. I am currently in this state of infatuation with Kate DiCamillo's The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. I started it Sunday night and finished reading last night (Tuesday). So far, all of my coworkers… Continue reading A New Favorite Book!
I usually don't do stuff like this (ask for book suggestions) because there are already so many books on my to-read list, but I've been really craving some book romance. Not anything dirty. But more heart-felt and inspirational. But nothing cheesy, though, and nothing contemporary. The only author I can think of who meets all… Continue reading Call for Book Suggestions…Inspirational Romance
I can hardly believe it's been over two weeks since my last blog post, and that I haven't even logged into my WordPress account during those two weeks. It's sad, really. I blame it on school and the horrible paper which is due tonight but which I turned in yesterday (praise the Lord!). I've thought… Continue reading Reading, Re-Reading, and a bit of Narnia
