Communications scholar Marshall McLuhan believed in deciding whether or not you’ll like a book, you simply need to read Page 69.  I’ve decided to put this to the test each Friday.  I’ll provide the page and, then at the end, let you know where it’s from.  Let’s see if it works!

September Galleys

There are two big book “seasons” in library world.  The first being spring when all of the light, airy, summer reads are released.  Then there is fall…better known as “award season.”  This is when all the heavy, literary fiction debuts in hopes of making the book award cut off times.  When looking at galleys, though, you’ve probably already heard about the buzzworthy titles (Nutshell, Dollhouse, Wonder, Gentleman in Moscow) which are now circulating in ARC format to the masses.  It makes it hard to come up with a list of “under the radar” titles for you to check out.  But, I’ve given it my best shot.

Top 10 Tuesday: Top American Mafia Non-Fiction

So I pretty much hate having to give a list of “Top Faves” because it changes so regularly.  I think every comment I’ve read about this topic said the same thing, though, so this is how I know I’ve found my people 😀

Top 10 Tuesday: Book TV

It’s Top Ten Tuesday, created and hosted by the awesome folks over at Broke and Bookish!  This week we are to list Ten Books in Honor of Fall TV.  I actually hardly ever watch television so I only managed to come up with five (and one is a bit cheatish!) Continue reading “Top 10 Tuesday: Book TV”

Instagram Faves

I love Instagram.  If I had enough free time, I’d spend it dreamily scrolling through book and travel photos.  It’s like a mini-vacation for your eyes.  I have a collection of favorite accounts and I’m highlighting one in each post with a sample of their page so you can see if you might be interested in giving them a follow as well.  Enjoy!
