Taking my Reading Challenges Seriously

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

Even MORE reasons to like Samwise Gamgee

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

A New Favorite Book!

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!

The only author I can think of who meets all… Continue reading Call for Book Suggestions…Inspirational Romance

The Satisfaction of Completed Crafts

I have noticed a trend in my blogging habits lately: the quantity of posts has plummeted since the start of the  new year. Last fall, I was doing pretty great--a blog a week and pretty proud of myself. But then during Christmas, I tasted the sweet freedom of no homework and ever since then I've… Continue reading The Satisfaction of Completed Crafts

Reading, Re-Reading, and a bit of Narnia

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
