Library Day Friday 2014

Happy New Year Everyone! Hope everyone had a good holiday and is ready for 2014, because ready or not, it is here. Did you make any New Years Resolutions this year? I'm not a big "New Years Resolutions" person. I am a big goals person, however. I think that goals can and should be sent… Continue reading Library Day Friday 2014

Austen Adaptations

What do you think of Jane Austen adaptations? There have been many over the years, and some that may not be technically adaptations but seem to bear a lot of similarities. Bridget Jones' Diary, Clueless, that episode where wishbone does Northanger Abbey, that episode when Wishbone does Pride and Prejudice... More recently of course there… Continue reading Austen Adaptations

That Customer

I spent a lot of unnecessary time searching for a book online today. All because I was stubborn. And I didn't want to be that person. Not that I have anything against that person. I just feel like, with my knowledge of books and fantastic Google skills, I shouldn't have to be that person. Which person is that,… Continue reading That Customer

What I’m Reading – Beautiful Creatures

Okay, so today's post was supposed to be my Stacking the Shelves October post (the one where I tell you what new books I either bought, borrowed or took out of the library). Unfortunately today turned out to be a bit busier than anticipated and I didn't quite find the time to sit down and… Continue reading What I’m Reading – Beautiful Creatures

Library Day Fridays, What I thought

What I thought: Bones of Faerie by Janni Lee Simner

I had initially planned to write a full, somewhat structured, review for this book as well as others that I’ve read recently. They were supposed to start into the posting schedule a couple weeks ago. Clearly that did not happen. It would seem I find the idea of posting a structured review daunting enough that… Continue reading What I thought: Bones of Faerie by Janni Lee Simner

Library Day Fridays, Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves September 2013

Last month I posted a September Library Haul where I told you about all the books I’d taken out of the Library in the previous few weeks. Since then, I discovered a “link-up” that is similar to a haul, but allows for books acquired either, permanently or temporarily, from any sources (library, purchase, borrowed from… Continue reading Stacking the Shelves September 2013

Experimenting with Graphic Novels

I had hoped to post my first book review today but, as of writing this post, I haven’t finished either of the books I was planning to review. I should be able to finish one of them by Friday, but since I have a few other things going on this week, and I don’t want… Continue reading Experimenting with Graphic Novels

September Library Haul

Since I finished my Masters, I have been enjoying the freedom to read for recreation. In addition to being a student no longer, I am also currently unemployed. As a result of the combination of these two factors, I have been making frequent trips to my local library. Don’t get me wrong, I use visit… Continue reading September Library Haul

Introducing: Library Day Friday

I am a reader. I have been for as long as I can remember. I have read good books, bad books and great books. I have a never-ending reading list and yet I continually re-read books. You know that person who trips over her feet because she’s trying to walk and read at the same… Continue reading Introducing: Library Day Friday
