April 2013 Reading Wrap-Up and May Plans

April 2013 Reading Wrap-Up and May Plans

Hooo-wee, April was a busy month! I went to two library book sales: the book sale for the smaller of my two local libraries was at the beginning of the month, and the book sale for my “big” local library was at the end of the month (and my dad drove all the way here to go with me!). In between those two events, Eric had nine days off from work and we did THE BIG SPRING CLEAN. We cleaned […]

March 2013 Reading Wrap-Up and April Plans

March 2013 Reading Wrap-Up and April Plans

It’s April, and it’s still cold. Hmph. My weather app tells me it’s supposed to be getting warmer very soon, though. I am very much in need of sunshine and warmer weather. March was another good reading month, and another month of not blogging as much as I’d like to. I swear it’s the weather. I just can’t make myself do much of anything besides snuggle up in a blanket on the couch and read. However, I know that once the […]

February 2013 Reading Wrap-Up and March Plans

February 2013 Reading Wrap-Up and March Plans

It’s March, it’s March! Here in the northeast that means we only have one more month until nicer weather! CAN I GET AN “AMEN”?! February is usually a slow reading month for me–I think because there are fewer days in the month, and because by February I’m starting to get really sick of crappy weather and I don’t feel like doing much of anything. But I got a surprising amount of reading done and I read some fantastic books. Finished […]

January 2013 Reading Wrap-Up & February Plans

January 2013 Reading Wrap-Up & February Plans

January has come and gone, and that means we have only 59 days left of winter. The calendar may say that the first day of spring is sometime in March, but those of us who live in the northeast know full well that spring doesn’t start until April…at the earliest. Remind me: why is it that humans don’t hibernate? Because that sounds pretty good to me right now. Single digit temperatures and negative wind chills be damned. Anyway, I read […]

Reading Wrap-Up: December 2012

Happy New Year, friends! This is going to be short and sweet because I have another post coming a little later that outlines my plans for 2013. I can’t WAIT for you to see it. sj and I are doing SOMETHING SPECIAL with our reading in 2013. If you just can’t wait for my post to go up, well, I guess you could read her post first. Hee! I am so very excited about our plans. I ALMOST CAN’T CONTAIN MYSELF. […]

Reading Wrap-Up: November 2012

Reading Wrap-Up: November 2012

It’s the last month of the year! Time sure flies, doesn’t it? I still haven’t felt like sitting in front of a computer screen to blog, but the computer screen just got more interesting at our house… I don’t remember how long ago it was (I would say six months, at least), but Eric’s computer took a crap. He creates digital artwork as a hobby, and he burned out his computer doing stuff on it that it wasn’t really made […]

Reading Wrap-Up: October 2012

Reading Wrap-Up: October 2012

I read SO MANY good books in October. So many. I participated in this really great reading project hosted by Adam of Roof Beam Reader–The Literary Others (#OthersLitLGBT)–in honor of LGBT History Month, and I was introduced to some wonderful authors that I hadn’t read before. Everything I read for the project was fantastic, so look for my wrap-up posts, coming soon. I also did some reading with SJ of Snobbery—The Passage (also read for #TuesBookTalk) and The Twelve, both by […]

October 2012 Reading Plans

October 2012 Reading Plans

I’m going to make this short and sweet because I have some reviews to catch up on, and I’d really rather be reading. The Literary Others: An LGBT Reading Event is being hosted by Adam of Roof Beam Reader in honor of LGBT History Month. I’ve chosen to read six LGBT-themed books in October, and I’ve already read four of them. The list of books I’ve chosen to read can be found in my sidebar, where you can also click […]

Reading Wrap-Up: September 2012

Reading Wrap-Up: September 2012

Yes, I’m just now writing this and it’s already October 17th. Some cold weather settled in here, and with it came my first bit of seasonal depression. I’m not ready to be cold, and I’m certainly not ready for snow. Unfortunately, this means that all I’ve really felt like doing for the last couple of weeks is reading and sleeping. This is the first time I’ve turned my computer on (for any length of time) in two and a half […]

Reading Wrap-Up: August 2012

Reading Wrap-Up: August 2012

IT’S SEPTEMBER! Do you know what is special about September? (No, no, it’s not that children go back to school and give us some time to ourselves, although that is equally marvelous.) MY BIRTHDAY is the most special thing about September! In fact, my birthday is so special, that people all over the country are celebrating, everyone is talking about the big holiday weekend, and most of them actually get my birthday off from work on Monday! Isn’t that great? […]
