“Oh, for a book…”

“Oh, for a book…”

O For A Book

O for a Booke and a shadie nooke,
eyther in-a-doore or out;
With the grene leaves whispering overhede,
or the Streete cryes all about.
Where I maie Reade all at my ease,
both of the Newe and Olde;
For a jollie goode Booke whereon to looke,
Is better to me than Golde.

Welcome to the book page! This page contains a running list of book recommendations, book goals, book reviews, book lists from previous years…and if I ever write a book, I’ll probably post something about it here, too.

The 2010 Book List and 2011 Book List. I wanted to review books in 2012; even though I didn’t meet my goal, I did review the book my grandfather wrote, as well as document my ever-evolving wish list for children’s books. And part the first, second, and third of my 2013 reading goal..and the final outcome. You can keep up with what I’m reading in 2014 on the side bar; the goal is 100, but…I am pregnant again.

Rather than link all of my reviews on this page, I’ll keep it simple:

  1. Scroll down to the bottom of the sidebar to see my record of reads for the year.
  2. Type the title of any book that looks interesting in the search bar.
  3. My book review will magically appear for you to read…if it exists. I’m about seven or so behind at all times, but still writing reviews!

Around here, we’re big fans of writing, but we’re even bigger fans of reading and books. After all, reading will keep your brain alive til you’re one hundred and twenty.

Happy reading!
