For most of my reading life I've been a "one book at a time" reader. Typically because I get so invested in whatever book I'm reading that I can only think about that one book, so I never bothered to pick up another one. Most of the time, I end up finishing the book in … Continue reading Tips for Reading Multiple Books at a Time
Books come to us in all formats. There's the traditional print in both hardcover and paperback, ebooks, and audiobooks. It's most likely that we have used all formats, either because we could only get a book in a specific format or we just wanted to try it out. Or maybe a certain format will only … Continue reading Book Formats: Pros and Cons
Can anyone believe it's December already?! I'm still kind of stuck in September, maybe October. So much has happened over the past few months and it's just insane that the time has gone by so quick.

This was a pretty slow reading month. Partly due to the fact that most books I tried reading I couldn't get into, but also because I was a participant in NaNoWriMo this year for the first time. While I won that, I didn't exactly win at reading. I guess I was just more caught up … Continue reading November Wrap Up
Reading slumps happen, and they're terrible. I recently had one at the end of September/beginning of October and it's really suckish to see all those unread books and just not feel like reading any of them.

It's that time of the year. Though I haven't started my Christmas shopping yet, I know a lot of other people have or are at least gathering ideas for what to get people. Being a bookworm, I obviously love getting anything book-related because well, books are pretty much my life. Being a librarian is a … Continue reading Unique Gifts for the Bookworm in Your Life
Many books end up being turned into movies simply because of all the hype they generate in their book form, and let's face it, a lot of us love to see our favorite characters come to life. And when our favorite books aren't popular enough to get turned into movies, we cast the "would-be" movie … Continue reading Read or Watch First?
It's November already and that means that it's almost time to start getting into the holiday mood. While of course here in the U.S. we have Thanksgiving coming up, but meanwhile the rest of the world is preparing for Christmas (and other holidays). While I do love Thanksgiving myself, there aren't really any books I … Continue reading 10 Holiday Book Recommendations

I mentioned in an earlier post that I like to occasionally buy books from independent bookstores or "chains" with only a few different stores regionally. There are a few that I think are really worth pointing out individually because I really liked some of these shops and definitely want to see them thrive so that … Continue reading Independent Bookstores I Love
