Book It!

By Andrea | June 26, 2017 |

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…

Bookish Questions – Paperback or Hardback?

By Andrea | June 20, 2017 |

Paperback or Hardback? As I mentioned in my last Bookish Questions post about Special Editions, I love hardback books. Especially hardback books that are pretty.  If I plan to keep a book to read multiple times, I would much rather have a hardback edition of the novel, but if it’s something I’m not likely to…

Bookish Questions – How do you feel about special editions?

By Andrea | June 6, 2017 |

How do you feel about special editions of books? Special editions of novels are the bane of my existence – or, at least my pocketbook. I mean, I love them, and I have the means to buy them, which is how I end up with so many different versions of the same novel. Fortunately there…

Book It! – Audiobooks Are Thrilling

By Andrea | May 29, 2017 |

Having Mildred has really cut into my reading time in the last couple of months, so I made it a point to go to the local library and renew my membership early this month.  One of the great things about my library is that they participate in Overdrive so, along with being able to check…

Book It! – Birthday Books

By Andrea | April 24, 2017 |

My birthday is in April, so it’s usually a great month for books.  After all, what better excuse for a reader to pick up some new and beautiful books than her birthday?  I actually wasn’t given any books for my birthday this year- probably due to my lack of shelf space right now. But I…

Bookish Questions – What do you do with books you no longer want?

By Andrea | April 4, 2017 |

What do you do with books you no longer want? When we set up Mildred’s room, I had to get rid of my big beautiful bookshelf.  There simply wasn’t room for the bookshelf and all of her new things. So, I pulled all of the books from the bookshelves and stored them in boxes.  But,…

Book It!

By Andrea | March 27, 2017 |

This month’s Book It! post is a little late in arriving.  I normally post these on the last Monday of the month, but with Mildred home now, I’ve been spending most of my spare time sleeping. And I completely forgot about getting this post up for you.  However, late is better than never.  And since…

Bookish Questions – What do You Read to Relax?

By Andrea | March 21, 2017 |

What do you read to relax? I normally read Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys as a relaxing read before bed, but I’m running out of books I haven’t read for a while.  And with a brand new baby in the house, I am exhausted. But that doesn’t mean that I’m getting much sleep.  So, I’m…

Bookish Questions – Favorite Cover Art?

By Andrea | March 7, 2017 |

What book has your favorite cover art? For me, the cover art of a book is a big deal, especially if it’s a book I love.  I think it’s the artist in me. I want to have a beautiful copy of my book that I can display, and that really conveys the atmosphere of the…

Book It!

By Andrea | February 27, 2017 |

February is almost over, and I am still doing well with my goal of reading 12 books this year. I’ve already completed twice the number of books that I need to read so far, but with baby “Spot” Turner coming next month, I have a feeling that my reading time is going to all but…
