Following along with Boof’s 40 Day Challenge leading up to her 40th birthday, her 17th topic is: 17) A book with the best evil character I don’t read many books with truly evil characters. He Who Shall Not Be Named was pretty terrifying in the Harry Potter series. The bad guys in Stieg Larsson‘s books were… Continue reading 40 Things (17)
Following along with Boof’s 40 Day Challenge leading up to her 40th birthday, day 15! Her topic for today is: 15) A book that I have read the most number of times Well, I don’t tend to re-read books too much (save the kiddo books I read when smaller), so the books I’ve read twice… Continue reading 40 Things (15)
Following along with Boof’s 40 Day Challenge leading up to her 40th birthday, her next question is: 7) A favourite YA book I had to go to goodreads to find a list of “best YA books” to see if I had read any – and of course I have read quite a few! The Harry… Continue reading 40 Things (7)
Playing along with Boof’s 40 Day Book Challenge for her 40th birthday, day 3 – 3) A book with a favourite character I’m sure that there are others but last summer I read the book “Love Walked In” by Marisa de los Santos and I remember vividly that I wanted to be friends with Cornelia.… Continue reading 40 Things (3)
Boof at the Book Whisperer turns the big 4-0 this year and is counting down to her birthday in October (shortly after mine!) with a 40 Day Book Challenge! I think I’ll play along (when I can) and also will write about my own list of “40 things to do before I turn 40” from a… Continue reading 40 Things…
It seems that I haven’t written about the books I’ve read lately! I do post quick little reviews on goodreads (it’s just so easy to keep that site updated and write some thoughts) so I’ll recap here… Reverse, chronological order 🙂 House Rules – I’m currently reading this book, after attempting to listen to the… Continue reading Catching up on Book Talk
It’s hard to believe that 2011 is half over, now that July (and some steamy summer weather) has arrived. I know that writing my “end of 2010 letter” in February probably makes mid-year creep up sooner, but nonetheless, it is amazing how fast the time goes. I set a goodreads reading goal for 2011 of… Continue reading Half-Full
Tomorrow is the LAST DAY OF SPRING! Thus, this is the end of my SPRING READING THING posts. I feel great about what I accomplished this spring, and with the most current list of books, I will leave it. Thanks for the challenge, Katrina at Callapidder Days! Mockingbird The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter… Continue reading Last post about SPRING READING THING!
Katrina over at Callapidder Days is hosting the Spring Thing Reading Challenge, 2011, and I’ve been participating. It’s hard to believe that it will be done with the first day of summer (YAHOO) next week, but how exciting is that? It was a pretty loosely defined challenge – challenge yourself to read books during the… Continue reading Spring Reading Thing Countdown…
It’s Audiobook Week, hosted by Devourer of Books (http://www.devourerofbooks.com/) and I couldn’t let the week go by without writing about my love of audiobooks! (Although I’m SUPER-DUPER frustrated right now because for some reason WordPress is saving my document as BLANK! Third time is the charm??? I’m learning and actually typing this into a word… Continue reading Audiobook Week 2011!
