Even a bad guy can have redeeming qualities

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!

Do you already know what book it comes from?  Does it grab your interest and make you want to know more?  Source after the break. Continue reading “Page 69”

Ex Libris Reading Journal

I’m pretty low tech when it comes to organizing my reviews.  If I’m on the go, I take all my notes in a tiny little Field Notes notebook.   Then they will eventually get transferred to a Leuchtturm1917 or Rhodia Webbie for long term storage.  If I’m at home they go straight into the Leuchtturm/Rhodia.  Since my reviews aren’t lengthy diatribes, I can hold hundreds in a  single journal.  My 2016 journal, for example, has over 400 titles with my little notes and comments.   Continue reading “Ex Libris Reading Journal”

Book Challenges

2010_nba_winner00081248-620x387 Every so often I get a wild hair and commit to a random book challenge.  Many moons ago, I went through and read every book on the Top Banned Books list put out by the American Library Association.  Then I decided to take on the Pulitzer winners for fiction.  I’m not sure why I do this except I figure that, as a bookworm, I should at least ATTEMPT to read a wide variety of literature.  I rarely like what I read from the “winner” lists (I did love many on the banned list, however) but I suppose I’m a glutton for punishment because I’ve decided to try it again.  This time, I’m going to read through the National Book Award list and the Orange Prize for Fiction (which has changed names again and is now known as the Bailey’s prize) and I’ll be sharing my adventure here as I go!

Have you read through any of the winner lists on purpose?  Or “best of” lists? Did you like it, hate it, find some hidden gems?

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!

October Galleys: Adult Halloween

Doing something a bit different this month for featuring ARC titles.  With Halloween right around the corner, I thought I’d do a listing of titles to help set the dark and haunting mood for the holiday.  YA titles are listed here and this post is all about Adult selections.  As always, a link to the title’s Goodreads page is provided for you to learn more about the title and all are currently available for request at either NetGalley or Edelweiss.   Continue reading “October Galleys: Adult Halloween”
