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
Over a year ago, on one of my very first blog posts, I let you all in on one of my greatest and grandest bucket list items, which is to create a novel of my very own. However, since this seems more like a daydream than an achievable goal (hence the post's title Daydream Bucket List),… Continue reading Fighting for Inspiration
Over the past month, my blogging life has pretty much died--not completely, just mostly. I'm sure anyone keeping up with my blog has wondered if I've dropped off the face of the earth. And I have, partially. With the end of the spring semester, I'm not all here. I think the writing part of my… Continue reading Debra Fileta’s “5 Things to Do While You Wait on God”
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!
