30 Day Book Challenge, Day 3

30 Day Book Challenge, Day 3

An update from yesterday. My efforts were valiant, but with getting new glasses my poor eyes just couldn’t handle reading the book that absolutely had to go back today. I am on page 245 of 385. What is a girl to do? Eat some late fees, of course. There is no way I am taking […]

Literary Panic, Library Edition: V 2.0

I have two books to read that need to go back to the library tomorrow. (Finishing up Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and Heartless by Gail Carriger) That’s a lot of reading in one day. Did I mention I have to work today? And go get my new glasses? Oy.

30 Day Book Challenge, Day 1

Currently Reading: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

So, book club selections this month were three sci-fi books. This is the first of them. It was nominated before, but I didn’t vote for it because it had a huge waiting list at the library, and I hate buying brand new books. Actually, my wallet hates it. But that is the price you pay […]

I’m Back!

So, after a short hiatus (during which I became a Mrs.) I am back! No more wedding planning means that I am once again completely free to read as much as I want. Which is a welcome change from the last few weeks/months. Unfortunately, a lot of what I have on the go right now […]
