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
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 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
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
With the stress caused by school lately, blogging is absolute bliss. And what's even better--this week is Teen Read Week! The week is about to end, but there's still plenty of time to blog about it. For an explanation of this special week, you may click here. Teen books especially deserve a week of their own… Continue reading Teen Read Week…and Finding my Faction
