Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon–It’s over!

Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon–It’s over!

November 19, 2015 2015 8

The Ho-Ho-H0 Read-a-Thon is hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Jennifer @ The Book Shelfery. December is one of my favorite times of the year and I really like reading holiday themed books set in the winter. I love sitting by my fire on a cold winter day reading and love reading about that, too! Kimba and Jennifer host a fun Read-a-Thon and I enjoyed participating last year. How’d I do? I had lots of fun reading Christmas stories. I read two books, a very short story by Spencer Quinn and a short story by Jennifer Crusie from an anthology. And I’m part-way done with another book. √Read… Read more »

February 18, 2014 2014, Top Ten Tuesday 17

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted at the Broke and the Bookish blog. Each week a different topic is introduced and it is fun to see what everyone writes each week. This week I talk about my love for both blogging and reading. Blogging …new books and authors found since I became a blogger. …wonderful blogs and the people who write them. …a creative outlet–writing blog posts, figuring out technology, talking about books. …sharing a good book with someone I’ve never met, but who loves reading the same kinds of books I do. Reading …a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My mother read… Read more »

Favorite Books & Reading Summary–2013

January 2, 2014 2013, Favorite Books of 2013, Favorites, Reading Summary 0

Reading Summary I read 88 books or novellas in 2013–way down from my 2012 total (118 books). I think the main reason for this is that I started my blog which took quite a bit of my reading time. I would like to’ve read at least 100 books which I’ve done for the last several years, but I’m enjoying blogging so I’m going to accept my reading speed plus I read some great books! When I’m reading a book I love I sometimes so down my reading so I can enjoy the happiness and joy of a great book! Over half the books I read (60 books or 68%) were… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday–Making my blogging & reading life easier

August 20, 2013 2013, Top Ten Tuesday 0

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish blog. There is a new topic each week which asks each person to talk about some sort of top ten topic related to books. Go by and check it out. It’s a lot of fun to see what each blogger writes each week. I don’t participate every week, but when I can, I try to! This week I’m talking about those things which make my life as a reader and blogger easier. Other than my first choice(!) they aren’t in any particular order. I’ve also added a couple of honorable mentions. 1. Kindle e-readers–I love my… Read more »
