Bookish Questions – Out of Shelf Space?

What do you do when you run out of shelf space? If you’re a big fan of e-readers, you may never encounter this problem, but thanks to the recent creation of my own tiny human, I suddenly have a lot less space for books.  So, while I would like my collection of books to keep…

Through the Sad Wood – A Review

I recently got a chance to read a review copy of Through the Sad Wood Our Corpses will Hang by Ava Farmehri.  So what’s this book about anyway? A Synopsis – At the age of 20, Sheyda Porrouya’s life is almost over. She was born in Iran on the day staunchly orthodox mullas declared the…

Book It!

I have to seriously thank the new “LeVar Burton Reads” podcast for getting any reading done this month.  It’s basically the adult “Reading Rainbow,” and I didn’t realize how much I needed it in my life until it appeared. Thanks to the podcast, I was able to rack up several completed “books” which were really…

Bookish Questions – One Book

If you could only have a physical copy of one book, what book would that be? As we’ve discussed previously, I have a love for physical copies of books, even having multiple copies of them. That means that choosing only one book to have a physical copy of would be very hard for me.  But…
