I've mentioned Goodreads before, and I'll keep mentioning it because I love the website/app and will use it for the rest of my life (as long as it's still around). I warn anyone who hasn't yet signed up for this... it's addicting! Not in a bad way though (well... mostly). Basically, you'll find out that … Continue reading You Know You’re a Goodreads Member When…
Hey bookworms! Today I present to you yet another book tag. Why? Because they're fun! That's why! I found this tag on Amber's blog - The Literary Phoenix - and immediately loved it! It's interesting to learn how other readers pick the books they read. We all have our reasons, and they all differ. So … Continue reading How I Choose My Books Tag
Where did August go? Seriously, it started and now it's over. My reading plans for the month seem to have diminished as well. I had such a good plan for reading quite a few books before and during my vacation, but that's over too. Now I'm back to work and started my classes... so there … Continue reading Recent Reads [August 2017]
This year for vacation my mom and I decided to break our tradition of going to Vermont like we have been for the past three years. It took us a while to decide where we'd be going for vacation this year, but we decided that it was time to finally scope out two states we've … Continue reading Vacation 2017
One of my reading goals this year was to reread the Harry Potter books before September first... and I DID IT!! Why September 1st? Why not give yourself the whole year? Come on, if you know Harry Potter at all, you know that this year, September 1st is the date of the epilogue in Deathly … Continue reading Harry Potter Book Challenge: Complete
Pet owners normally tend to lean one way or the other when it comes to having either dogs or cats as a pet. I have had cats all my life, minus a few years when we weren't allowed to have cats at two of the places we lived. Obviously, I prefer cats to dogs. It's … Continue reading Why I Prefer Cats
Thanks to everyone who voted to help me out with what to read next! I really appreciate the input, and it seems that most of you think alike. So the winner is... Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! I mean, look at this. I haven't closed the poll yet, but it's pretty much a runaway. … Continue reading The Results Are In…
Does anyone else suffer the problem of having too many unread books to choose from for your next read? I'm sure you do; if you're an avid reader anyway. I currently have a ton on my NOOK, thanks to those ebook deals I mentioned last week, and now I have no idea what to read … Continue reading Poll: What Should I Read Next? (need your help!)
I love book deals! And the best part, they're everywhere! Okay, maybe the ones in stores aren't always super-great, but they can be at times. For instance, I've gotten a book at Barnes & Noble that was 30% off, plus my 10% member discount, then I also was able to add a 20% coupon I … Continue reading eBook Deals
Happy Friday everyone! Seriously, today is a good day because it was a year ago today that I started my amazing job at the library! Sometimes it doesn't feel like it's been a year and other times it, well, I guess it's never felt like a year. It still doesn't. But it is. I'm so … Continue reading Year One, Complete!
Dear Best Friend, You know who you are. First off, I'm truly thankful that God placed us in that middle school Spanish class years ago because we definitely came into a great friendship that I think will last. We don't see each other nearly as often as we used to, but that hasn't changed a … Continue reading Letter to My Best Friend
Another month, another Recent Reads post hitting your feed! This month was weird. It just felt like it went so fast, yet it seems like the books I read last month were ones that I read ages ago - not just a few weeks. Perception of time is a weird thing, though usually it goes … Continue reading Recent Reads [July 2017]
I’m going through a summer slump in the blogging department at the moment, but I found this great post by Holly at Nut Free Nerd listing 10 Reasons to Love Your Library.
Check it out – because it’s 1000% accurate – and give Holly some love!
And your library too.
Happy Tuesday! Since the lovely bloggers behind The Broke and the Bookish are taking a summer hiatus from creating TTT topics, I’ve decided to come up with some of my own for the next few weeks. This week I’ll be sharing my Top Ten Reasons to Love Your Library. As someone who worked at a library throughout my high school years I always look forward to visiting my local one on a regular basis during the summertime. I know everyone has their own personal preferences when it comes to the formats of books they like to read (new, used, borrowed, digital, etc.) but I really think that libraries deserve more credit than they often receive! Here are ten reasons to give your local library a little more love:
1. Borrowing books = FREE. This is an obvious reason, but for many people I think it’s the most important one. I…
