    Kindle Unlimited Reading List

    Do you know about the Kindle Unlimited program where you can "borrow" an unlimited number of books from Amazon to read on your Kindle? ...I wasn't sure how many titles I was actually interested in reading would be available that way. So I started an ongoing list of books on my "to be read" list that are available on Kindle…

    10 Favorite Book Series for Girls

    I learned to read independently when I was 7 years old and I’ve pretty much had my nose in a book ever since. This week when a friend asked for some series book recommendations for girls ages 8 and 10, my mind went back to my family’s weekly library visits in the 1970s. I can’t remember if our public library…

    24+ Free Christmas Books for Your Kindle

    It’s that time of year when I open the “Christmas Books” folder on my Kindle to select a few festive stories to read throughout the holiday season. And of course, I always end up adding a few as well. Here are some Christmas titles that are currently available for FREE! I haven’t read them all, but thought I’d give them…

    10 Favorite Picture Book Series

    I absolutely love to read aloud and always have. It’s so much fun to share a favorite picture book with a child. If there’s a little kid around and we have time, I’m likely to grab a book and say, “Wanna hear a story?” I’m always a little hesitant to choose favorites–of anything–because I’m afraid once I’ve declared my favorite…

    Recently Read

    I didn’t get my Recently Read list posted in August, so this is two months’ worth of reading. I’ve enjoyed a lot of random reading the last few weeks… review books that piqued my interest, interesting-looking titles tucked in Little Free Libraries, a number of juvenile titles, a few thrift store treasures, and of course, library books. My star ratings…

    My summer reading list has included re-reads of old favorites as well as new-to-me authors and quite a few in between! As usual, this post includes affiliate links to Amazon. I might make a small commission if you click through on them, though it doesn’t cost you any extra. Thank you!

    I’ve been on a reading binge lately. But then, when am I not? I don’t know that I’m actually reading more than usual, but I have been enjoying the #bookstagram community on Instagram which keeps me inspired with #allthebooks to try and an ever-growing TBR (To Be Read) pile. The #annewithanereadalong2018 has been especially fun, as well as the #12daysofannestegram…

    Books I’ve Read Recently

    It’s been over two months since I posted a reading update. I doubt you’ve missed it. That’s okay. I’m not offended. Really. I mostly just make these reading posts for my benefit… and I like to do them once a month. But time gets away from me. Of course, if you’re a bibliophile like me, you could always follow me…

    Recent Reads

    For the last couple of years I’ve been tracking my reading with GoodReads. I haven’t participated in any reading challenges lately and I haven’t set any reading goals. Mainly because I suspect I read too much already. There’s a quote from Louisa May Alcott that describes that condition: “She is too fond of books, and it has addled her brain.”…

    Reading Lately + Christmas Kindle Freebies

    Disclosure: This post includes affiliate links. As usual, I’ve been reading an eclectic assortment of fiction and non-fiction. (Can “eclectic” actually be considered “usual”? I wonder.) These are the titles I’ve read since the last time I reported in. I mentioned last year that I only read Christmas books during the actual Christmas season. Here are a few Kindle freebies…
