The Shameful Shelf Tour

For quite some time I’ve been telling myself I should do an updated bookshelf tour. My last tour was in August of 2015 and boy, do I have even more books now! But due to a project that took Sweetbeeps almost a year to actually start for me, we didn’t really have enough room in our second bedroom for me to photograph the shelves in there.

I almost didn’t do this post though…

The Classics: Are They For You?

I don’t know about you, but I have a love-hate relationship with “classic” literature. First off, let me start by ranting about how everyone assumes just because I read a lot, that I’m an expert on classic literature. I may have touched on this before, but many people assume that just because I own over 1,000 books, and I spend most of my free time reading, that I’ve read all the classics. Well, sorry, but I haven’t. I’d like to read several of them, but unfortunately, many of them can be a chore to get through.

The TBR Pile: How Do You Do It?

To Be Read piles – I think we all have them (and if you don’t, what’s your secret?!) and I’m curious to know how you manage yours. As I’ve mentioned before and I’ll totally mention again I have over 400 books that I OWN that I need to read. And I’m constantly acquiring more, so that number isn’t likely to go down anytime soon.

Judging A Book By Its Cover: The Chronicles of Narnia

Time for another edition of Judging a Book! We all judge cover art a little, even if it doesn’t necessarily sway us into buying or not buying a book. This week I’m showing off my Chronicles of Narnia set.

To Read or Re-Read?

I don’t know about you, but I know I’ve mentioned before that my TBR pile is massive (literally hundreds of books) and I’m trying to read at least 100 books a year, just to keep up with my ever-growing collection. But sometimes I’m overwhelmed by my options and have a hard time deciding what to read next. Sometimes I just need a break – but I can’t just stop reading.

Boston Book Tour

I have a few reviews to post – but I’ve been on a little vacation while a friend is visiting from Maryland, so I’m going to put those off for a few more days. I wanted to give a little update on what we’ve been up to however…which is shopping for more books!

On Saturday we went to Boston and visited 4 different bookstores!
