Greetings Bookworms, You may recall that last year I (very predictably) dressed my tiny 2 month old baby up as a penguin. This year I had every intention of dressing Sammy up as a dinosaur. I had a costume and everything. But then I saw this and I couldn’t not buy it. Especially given that… Read more »
Happy Halloween, Bookworms! I just thought I’d drop in to show you the cutest penguin in all the land. Hope you’re enjoying some costume filled festivities today!
Trick or Treat, Bookworms! I just thought that y’all might enjoy seeing the ridiculousness of my costume this year. I cannot help but crack up every time I look at the thing- hopefully it has the same effect on you. BEHOLD! Happy Halloween!
Happy Halloween, Bookworms! If you weren’t aware, Halloween is kind of a big deal here at the Gingerbread House. We’re pretty into it. I thought you might want to see a sample of our decor. And no, this isn’t all of it… What are you doing for Halloween, Bookworms? Are you dressing up? What’s your… Read more »
Greetings Bookworms! This week the folks at The Broke and The Bookish have graciously offered up a Halloween Freebie as a topic. In the past I’ve talked about cool literary costumes and the like, but today I thought it would be fun to talk about some books that scared me to the point that it… Read more »

As I mentioned… Read more »
Greetings, Bookworms! That’s right kids. In honor of my Halloweenie reading binge I finally got around to Dracula by Bram Stoker. I’ve had this book waiting around on my Kindle since I got a Kindle… 3 years ago. It was the very first book I downloaded, and it’s just been sitting there gathering digital dust while I… Read more »
Muahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa Dear Bookworms! I’m busting out my evil laugh to celebrate the fact that it’s October and I’m reading some scary books. Remember this summer when I went to BlogHer? One of the keynote speakers was Gale Ann Hurd- the executive producer of the greatest show currently on television, The Walking Dead. St. Martin’s Press was another… Read more »
Happy Monday, Bookworms! Did everyone have a lovely weekend? I got my Halloween cards ready to send out. I hear the Post Office is having money problems, but it’s not my doing. I send out greeting cards for a multitude of holidays, and some for no reason at all. (Except, you know, Grandma is a… Read more »
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… Read more »
