Hazy Shade of Winter… Swap

Hazy Shade of Winter… Swap

Howdy Bookworms! Have the gray days of winter been getting to you like they’ve been getting to me? There is only ONE redeeming factor of winter, in my humble opinion. In just the right type of snow, everything outside gets super super quiet. It’s the  most peaceful feeling in the world to stand outside in the gently falling snow and listen to the silence. This winter? We haven’t gotten a… Read more »

Holly Daze: Underachiever Extraordinaire (Life Well Blogged)

Hidey Ho Bookworms! So. Here’s the thing. I’m about to review this book, right? But I’ve got to give you about a mountain of full disclosure here… One of my blog posts is FEATURED in the book! I’M IN A BOOK! Clearly, this isn’t going to be a terribly objective review. So sue me. Life Well Blogged is a series of blog anthologies that are organized around a particular theme. Holly… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday: 2013 Bookish GOOOOOOOALS

Top Ten Tuesday: 2013 Bookish GOOOOOOOALS

Happy Tuesday, Bookworms! As you know, on Tuesdays, I make lists with The Broke and The Bookish. Today’s topic is my Top Ten Bookish Goals for 2013. It’s a big old list o’ resolutions. Let’s do this thing! 1. I (rather foolishly) committed myself to read 100 books in 2013 via the Goodreads Challenge.  Now, I read a lot, but 100 books is daunting. You can keep an eye on my… Read more »

Sad Desk Salad: A Selection For Mandy's Blogger Book Club

Hello Bookworms! I’m super excited about today’s blog post. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to participate in Mandy’s Blogger Book Club. Have you met The Well Read Wife?

I want to be friends with Amy Poehler. I want… Read more »

I'm A Sensitive Soul, Though I Seem Thick Skinnnnnned…

I'm A Sensitive Soul, Though I Seem Thick Skinnnnnned…

Happy Thursday, Bookworms! I was having a hard time deciding on what to write today, so I’m straying a bit from books. The other day was rough for me. Like the great Pumbaa in The Lion King, “I’m a sensitive soul, though I seem thick skinned.” I got my feelings hurt, so I was down in the dumps. Jim knew I was feeling crummy, so he decided to bust out his… Read more »

Friday Fall Fun Swap

Friday Fall Fun Swap

Happy Friday, Bookworms! A few weeks back, Joules at Pocketful of Joules had a most delightful idea. She thought, “Christmas is ever so far away, let us bloggers give each other gifts because it is fun!” And thus, the Fall Fun Swap was born. (Joules is secretly the Queen. Shhh, don’t tell.) Her Majesty Joules arranged for a group of bloggers to swap gifts, Secret Santa style. Since it’s a… Read more »
