Happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoy the day with friends and family, and be thankful for all of the books you have read, and have yet to read.

Still Alice

Find it at your library

A depiction of a woman with early onset Alzheimer's Disease that is at times sad, but manages to still end on a somewhat positive spin.

I Crawl Through It


A wonderfully insane helicopter ride through the lives of four high school students who are looking for the answers. 

I fell in love with this book and I NEED to talk about it with someone. Anyone else read it? Thoughts?

The Rest of Us Just Live Here

A cute, funny, ironic, and easy-to-read book that still manages to tackle serious issues and save the world.

Take Two (or three?)

As you, my many abandoned followers know, I have not posted anything in close to a year. Before that, I had not posted anything in over a year.

Now, I think I am ready to take another stab at this blogging thing.

Am I any less busy? No.
Am I working a lot? Yes.
Do I have a million things to do? Yes.
Am I looking forward to getting a new standing desk?  YES x 1,000.

But I am going to make it a million + 1 things to do, this blog being the +1.

Now, I am going to change the format a bit. As you may have gathered from the new title of the blog, I plan on making my reviews much shorter. Instead of a summary and full book review, I plan on writing one sentence reviews. If I feel very strongly about a book and feel the need to extrapolate on my one sentence, I will. This is my blog, after all, and if I feel like breaking my rules, I can do that.

My goal is to 1) get back into the blogging habit and 2) practice getting straight to the point. An online elevator pitch. If you want to get the quick and dirty of why you should or should not read a book, this is the place to look.

Along with my one sentence review, I will link the book to WorldCat, so if you are interested, you can find which libraries near you have it.

There you have it. My brand new blogging plan. Along with that new plan will be a new layout, soon to come.
