What I’m Reading

While I still don’t get to read quite as much as I would like, Mil is becoming a bit more independent, which is allowing me to be able to do more things for me, including reading. I’ve been even able to finish four books in the last couple of months. Recently Finished From the Mixed-Up…

What I’m Reading

Since my last post in March, I’ve finished reading a few more books. I’m actually ahead for my reading goal for the year, which with the tiny human is only 1 book per month. If I meet my goal by July 1, I’ll probably double it, and see if I can keep up with an…

In this particular novel, Death isn’t…

Book It!

Would you believe me if I told you that I only finished one book this month?  It’s true. Finding time to read has been dicey lately, as Mil hasn’t been feeling the best. She’s going thru a phase where she isn’t happy unless you’re holding her, and honestly, all I want to do when she’s…

Book It!

I’m back at work now, so even my available time for listening to audiobooks has dropped.  But, I am still trying to make time to do a little bit of reading. I was able to finish 2 audiobooks this month, and made some progress on a couple of real books. Speakers of the Dead Speakers…
