Once again, I am going to participate in International Yarnbombing Day, which is tomorrow (June 8th).  Yarnbombing, by the way, is decorating an item (tree, lampposts, etc.) with crocheted or knitted items. Yarnbombing can be as extensive as covering the whole item or as little as adding a...

There is a book festival in Akron, Ohio that is held every year in early February.  At this festival, books are given away, no strings attached. Several bookcrossers from that area solicit books to be given away, and because I am a bookcrosser, I always send them a few titles.  This year...

New Year's resolutions come...and (mostly) they go, but I have chosen resolutions that I am continuing to keep since my resolutions fit into two categories.  The first is concerning reading.  That is, to read more books this year than last year!  The second is concerning the tracking...

I continue to read more books as I resolved in my New Year's resolution (any other resolution I could have made would have been broken within days, probably).  The last few months I haven't done too well because of the "project" (AKA the new (old) house), but finally I had a chance to...

Well, the bookcrossing readathon is on!  Despite working for the last three days, I have managed to put in about six hours of the twenty-four desired.  Whether or not I manage the twenty-four hours is immaterial; it's the thrill of the chase, in a sense.  In this quest I have finished Ender's...

As I have mentioned in previous blogs, I bookcross!  For those not familiar with the concept, bookcrossing.com is a place where readers register books and release them into the "wild" or via controlled releases.  If found, they can be catalogued, too. Recently, I have started a RABCK,...

Okay, lots of little things going on.  Mostly books, though, as I remain a reader.  I just finished another book, The Winds of Fall, a science-fiction fantasy romance.  Science fiction combined with romance makes for a different read for me because science fiction is not my favorite genre. Having...

Fearing that I wouldn't have any more library books to read, I stopped at the library on the way home from our daily walk to the post office.  Weather permitting, my husband and I usually walk to the post office and other various places around town.  It makes the pedometer geek in me happy for one...

I just finished Resistance by Anita Shreve.  After a rather slow start, it was a sad, poignant love story set during World War II. The Belgium Resistance movement was the backdrop for the novel.  An American aviator who crashes his fighter is protected in a small village from the Gestapo by a man...

Well, I finished Little Face by Sophie Hannah.  What a suspenseful novel, especially for a debut author!  Hannah had me all the way.  She deftly wove her story in such a way as to lure me in.  While I figured out much of it, there were still surprises along the way.  It's a really good read about...
