Confessions of a Bookaholic in 2021

Confessions of a Bookaholic in 2021

Guess what? With only a few weeks left in the year, it’s official I won’t be making my year-end reading goals. And guess what else? I’m okay with that. *Insert shocked face here* Admittedly for me, Goodreads for the most part has been a place for me to track my reading, but oddly enough even […]

Another Update

So… if you read my post a few weeks ago that said I’m coming back to the blogging world, you may be scratching your head wondering why there’s been crickets since that post again. Oops! Okay, YES I AM coming back. It just might take me a little bit to get back into the swing […]

Secret Church

Last night my husband and I attended an event at our church that I passionately feel is worth sharing. We spent about 7 hours last night watching a simulcast (yes, it included breaks), and spending time to pray for the secret churches around the world. In the United States we are free to attend our […]

Appreciation for the Author’s Note

Have you ever read an intense and emotionally gripping book that left you questioning if any of it was based on real life? Or have you ever wondered what made the author’s mind create such a drama? I used to be one of those people who read a book and ignored any of the “extras” […]

A Very Different World

There are two motto’s I like to say about myself. One is “if it weren’t for my camera and electricity I’d be Amish” and the other is “I was born 100 years too late.” While yes, I usually say them trying to be funny- I also kinda believe them. I absolutely love talking to older folks […]

I Dream of England

One of the phrases I say regularly is “I just want to travel to England so I can sit on a bench and listen to people talk.” Now, obviously there are more reasons than that, but I absolutely love listening to English Accents. In the past I thought it was just my own personal opinion without […]

Read and Encourage Reading!

Have you ever watched the movie Matilda? As a kid it was one of my favorite movies. I remember one of the lines the dad says in the movie is “there’s nothing you can get from a book that you can’t get from a television faster.” Not to age myself, but I was 9 when the […]

Likes and Dislikes

In case you couldn’t guess by the type of blog this is, I love to read. While there is a lot that I will read, I admit I have my favorites. I fully believe that my love of reading came from my maternal grandmother. I almost always saw her with a book in her hands. I remember […]

The Ever-Growing TBR

Ever heard of the phrase “It’s not hoarding if it’s books?” No, I’m not actually hoarder status, but I’m not going to lie I laugh at myself and say the phrase about every time I buy or am given a new book to read. Last year was the first since probably primary school that I actually […]

Book Quirks Are Real

  As you can see from the commercial above, when electronic devices like the Kindle and Nook came out, they were known to poke fun at “quirks” people had towards preferring real books. Things like the smell, texture, feel-in-the-hands, page marking, etc were poked at purposely in an attempt to get readers to laugh at themselves […]
