Checking Out

We’re welcoming the month with very cold temps and icy conditions but luckily my husband and I worked from home. Granted all day yesterday I’ve been hearing the cracking and breaking of tree branches. We’ve lost some but luckily so far have avoided any major damages. I feel so bad for so many in our city who are without power or have a lot of damages. I remember the experience we had a couple of years ago when we were without power and water for a week! Anyway, let’s move on to something a lot more fun to talk about […]

Recapping the Month

I was going to wait until end of day to post this but I don’t see myself finishing another book today so let’s get started on the monthly recap. How’s your year going so far? I completed four books this month and have quite a few in progress. First off, I finished A Winter Away by Elizabeth Fair which gave me an opportunity to read something from Dean Street Press and indie publisher. This was the perfect book to welcome the year with as it is set in winter and is a cozy story about a young woman set in […]

Linkin’ Around!

It’s been so long since I’ve done one of these posts but I love sharing bookish/paper arts/etc. stories that I think you might enjoy as well. So I’m back with another post! Do you miss library card catalogs? It’s so nice to be able to find things quickly thanks to the internet but I have fond memories of learning how to use the card catalog. If you want to learn a bit more about its history read this article. Speaking of libraries, did you know that the New York Public Library has a collection of weird objects? I loved Virginia Woolf […]

What’s the Mystery?

Last week I joined my Mystery Book group to discuss Stone Dead by Christopher Wortley. To sum it up, this book was not one of our favorites. It was a bit all over the place. Was it a mystery, was it fantasy, who was the target audience? I will say though as usual with a book that is not a favorite, we had a very lively discussion. I’ll try to do a bit of a review later. Now to look forward to our upcoming reads: State of Terror by Hillary Rodham Clinton Walk the Wire by David Baldacci Ghost Daughter by […]

Nowadays when so many magazines are ceasing publication it’s so great to have this wonderful literary magazine. If you’ve never read it, I highly recommend it.

Let’s Get Planning!

In a recent Sunday Salon post I mentioned how I was enjoying my Legend Planner and I think a lot of us who love books also love stationery so I wanted to chat a bit about that. Last year I was using two planners (one for work and one for personal plans) and I know I’ve seen people who use more but that’s just too much for me. This year I decided to consolidate and just use one planner. And, yes, I use stickers, colored pens and what have you, and it works. I love my planner because I feel […]…
