A problem that I have come across in recent years is looking up book reviews before deciding to buy or even read a book. This is an issue because I might end up missing out on a really good book or end up hating one that everyone else loves. I've been more conscious of this … Continue reading The Review Issue
Well, I hope everyone has enjoyed at least some part of their Labor Day weekend. I certainly did, and no, I didn't go to any cookouts. Instead, I'm three for three going to bookstores all weekend. But I won't go into that. The end of Labor Day weekend means a few different things. The end … Continue reading One More Year
July went by too fast if you ask me. One moment it's here and the next thing I know it's my best friend's birthday. What happened? The month went by so fast in fact, that I have now just realized that it's been a few weeks since I've posted. This was more due to a … Continue reading Where Did July Go?

Well, hello strangers! I haven't posted anything since I revealed that I'm writing a book, and well, you can guess why. I've been a bit busy with that, reading quite a lot, and just other things that take away from me sitting here to write a blog post. Also, I haven't really had much to … Continue reading Introducing My Second Website
On my last post, bookish facts about me, I dropped the news that I'm writing a book.

That, my friends, is how long I have off until my third semester of graduate school begins. Earlier today I took my last quiz for my Children's Literature class (before 8am) and instead of wasting the next five hours before work reading or wasting time deciding what to read next, I figured, 'what the heck? … Continue reading Four and a Half Months
Most of us grew up with that one special childhood toy that we kept until adulthood or still have among our possessions. Typically, at least for my age group, we had a special blanket or stuffed animal and we reason that we'll keep them for our future children. Of course, as some of us grow … Continue reading A Piece of My Childhood
Stock photography is a cool thing, especially for bloggers. I will often look to some sites that offer "free-use" photos when I am stuck and do not have an image of my own to use for my posts.
