November TBR Recap

In January, I set a goal to read 108 books before the end of 2018 and I reached it in November so I had no choice (!) but to pushing it a little further to 120 for the year. I don’t think I’ve ever read that much before and it would be a nice achievement….

October TBR

My public reading goal for 2018 is 108 books but I’d really like to hit that elusive number 120 this year. I keep an Excel spreadsheet to track the titles along with other information that helps me keep my reading varied. At the end of the year, I enjoy charting different categories and figuring out…

September TBR

It’s probably odd to see a post making plans for a month that’s just a  few days left in it but I just realized I never shared the books I have on my September TBR list and I want to update you on how it’s going so this is a kind of announcement / update…

Read Your Books Challenge

I get a lot of the books I read from the library but in the past few months, I’ve been buying a lot more books than I did before. Blame it on the fact that I started publishing my own stories and want to support other authors too. Blame it on the fact that I started a…

Books To Buy Soon

There are lots of places to read for free – the public library, a school library if you are enrolled in a class somewhere, the little free library kiosks on the side of the road, even borrowing books from friends. I take advantage of all these resources when I can, but there are some books…

Establish And Build

How many of our favorites come from things that we have recently experienced? Do we develop new favorites or are favorites cultivated from a combination of nostalgia and experiences we had during a good time in our lives? Consider, for a moment, ice cream, which is one of my favorite things to eat. I’ve eaten lots…

Fall TBR

Yesterday for the first time in a long time, I needed the blazer that I was wearing. When I was standing waiting for the bus, it was chilly. New York Fall weather chilly. And I loved it. It’s hot cocoa evening weather. I’m not a big pumpkin-spice latte drinker. I know a lot of bloggers can’t get enough…
