Dewey’s Reverse Read-a-thon: Opening Survey

Opening Survey 1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? The Raven Boys because I’ve been holding off reading it until I had the entire series in my possession, which I now do. 3) Which snack are you…

Review: Futuristic Violence And Fancy Suits

Review: So I say this everytime I review a book by this author, this was insane!   It’s set in the not-so-distant future where the cars are self driving, holograms are a normal thing, and most of the world lives their lives either creating or watching a continuous live stream of their mundane or extereme…

Dewey’s Reverse Read-a-thon: Prep

Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon is doing something special today.  First it’s a summer read-a-thon, which is new.  The yearly read-a-thons usually take place in the spring and fall.  Second, the start day/time is different.  The admins are trying to do something nice for the participants that are in other parts of the world.  They normally have…

Shelf Success…For Now

So I did manage to finish reorganizing my shelves.  I’m not sure if I’m happy with it or not, but it’s done and I can always do it again, lol!

Read-a-thon Weekend

So Dewey’s is having their first ever summer read-a-thon this weekend.  I’m so excited.  I have to get together my TBR pile, snacks, and ready my blog for updates.     Anyone else participating?  Original post: Virago77.booklikes.com/post/1778103/read-a-thon-weekend

Ugh!

When you add a book to an order so that it reaches the qualifying amount for 1-day shipping (and yes I feel bad enough about ordering anything from Amazon right now, let alone a book) but I somehow manage to hit 2 for quantity. *facepalm* It will cost almost the cost of the book to…

Shelf Problems

I finally decided to take down some books that I know in my heart I will likely never get to (I mean maybe when I retire and the kids are gone and I have no thoughts in the world other than reading, but that’s a ways off yet.)  But I’m going off on a tangent,…

Book Addiction…It’s A Thing

So, my box from Bookoutlet arrived (stinking scratch n dent sale) and I didn’t realize it before hubby saw it in the door. He was too busy with a blade of grass stuck in his eye at the time to comment.  Someone wasn’t wearing safety glasses while edging the grass (no worries, super wife got…

Review: What The Hell Did I Just Read

Review: I feel like I say this every time I review a book from this series, but this was an exercise in insanity!   Let me start by saying, there’s only so much I can say without spoiling.  I’m about to say something that may be of an unpopular opinion; I don’t know because I…

Trying, But it’s Hard

So after being basically immobile for nearly six months, I am finally trying to do something with the hot mess that is my bedroom.  And do you know what I have found?  Being injured sucks on sooooo many levels.     My toes still hurt, so walking around for almost any period of time just sucks. …
