    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…

    Reading Lately and Other Ramblings

    Disclosure: This post includes affiliate links. Rebecca has taken an interest in rabbits lately. She has seen pictures of pet rabbits on Instagram and has decided that would be the very thing to add to her backyard farm. Apparently, four fat hens are not enough. The first step, of course, is to research rabbits. That requires a trip to the…

    Reading Lately

    Here’s a visual of what I’ve been reading the past couple of months. Out of this batch my favorite fiction title is A Time to Stand by Robert Whitlow. It is a legal thriller dealing with racial issues. I really liked several of the characters and appreciated the strong element of Christian faith throughout. I also highly recommend The Outdoor Adventure…

    Reading Lately

    My summer has been so full with a wide variety of activities that it seems like I’m not getting as much reading done as I was during the winter and spring. I track my reading with the Goodreads app on my phone. I was surprised to see how much I actually have read the past couple of months when I…

    We don’t get very many sunny days in the middle of the winter here in north Idaho. I have to say, the winter sunshine may be the one thing I miss most about living in Denver. When we do have sunny days I try to sit near the window and soak it in. I crave that Vitamin D, you know.…

    Christmas Reading

    As my daughter kindly puts it, I’m really not much of a Christmas person. That’s her kind way of saying I’m something of a Scrooge. I’m really not, but I don’t enjoy celebrating Christmas for 2 or 3 months. I don’t fully embrace the Christmas season until Thanksgiving is over and even then I like to keep things very simple.…
