Before I ask if anyone else has had an emergency To-Be-Read (TBR) book pile, I'll first explain what I mean. This year, I made a goal to read 30 books. I even stated my goal on Goodreads so I could track my progress and share with others what I've been reading. So far, I've finished… Continue reading The Emergency TBR Book Pile
Happy Tolkien Reading Day! Since many people won't have time to read an entire Tolkien book today, I've decided to share a poem, so all of you are covered! This poem is from The Lord of the Rings and, in the book, was written by Bilbo about Aragorn. "All that is gold does not glitter, Not… Continue reading Happy Tolkien Reading Day!
With Christmas already passed and the new year settling in, there is now something else to look forward to: Creating and/or picking out a book challenge for the year. I'm sure some of you avid readers have already done this. And so did I, on the very first day of the year, but now I'd… Continue reading The Best Time of the Year: Choosing Book Challenges
Something I look forward to every year is getting to line up a new set of books to read and wondering which books will light up my imagination and pull at my heartstrings. Luckily for me, this past year has uncovered a wealth of literary discoveries. During this post, I would like to highlight some… Continue reading My Top Reads of 2017
See the stack of books pictured below? That's my current to-read list. What's more, most of them are library books and due within the next month. What's more, I'll be moving and starting a new job within the next month and a half, even though I'm buried in books. As you see, I have a… Continue reading A Bookworm’s Dilemma
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
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)
Every time I read The Lord of the Rings, I find more literary treasures to enjoy, hidden within the prose, the setting, and the characters. When I reread the series this past January, I particularly noticed qualities in the loyal hobbit Samwise Gamgee which made me like him even more than I already had. If you've read… Continue reading Even MORE Reasons to Like Samwise Gamgee
