If you love books, you’ll understand

I started a new book today and before I even cracked it open… I was having ‘the feels.’ You know what I’m talking about. 😉 … that giddy feeling of a new adventure about to begin … the excited butterflies of finally sitting down to read the thing you’ve been waiting all day to read … the pop…

Stay home and read…

Life’s crazy right now. And feeling more and more like a fiction novel I’ve read. but today… I want to bring a bit of light into your life. 🙂 Maybe make you smile. Give you a break, however brief, and an opportunity to reconnect to the one thing that brought us readers together in the…

Book Hunting. (I promise it’s worth it…)

I have a confession to make… I BURN through books. (Not literally, of course… but you, fellow reader, know what I mean) But lately, I’ve been super-picky about what to read next.

The MYTH of the holiday vacation… Where is my timeslot for reading???

Holidays… they always throw me off. I dream of sitting at home, sipping hot chocolate… okay, wine. Sipping wine and curling up on the couch with a book.  Time away from work and the real world. Blissful free hours to do nothing but catch up on my ever-growing TBR pile. But that is not really…

Perform a contortionist-routine of knee stretches to help alleviate pain (As my grandmother always said, getting old isn’t for wimps) Ablutions Kiss…

Fall Book Cleaning… Is this a thing?

Last week my husband and I went on a MAJOR fall-house-cleaning kick (is that even a thing? Like the dark side of the moon to spring cleaning?)   … and I told him I would “go through” all my books.   I know. Mistake.   But my bookcases may have looked something like this…  …

I have a new Series OBSESSION!

I must confess… I’m in the midst of a new-book-series obsession. You know what I’m talking about? It’s that joyous moment when you discover a brand-new book series and realize, with unabashed joy, that: You REALLY have never read these before (not just forgotten that you did, like, 10 years ago and it’s not really…
