Spring Cosy Reading Night: TBR and Wrap-up

I’ve got more and more into the habit of watching BookTube videos while I’m getting ready or otherwise pottering about the house recently and one of my favourite channels is Lauren’s,  Lauren and the Books.  I trust her recommendations because her reading tastes in the […]

Dewey’s 24 Hour #Readathon

Dewey’s 24 Hour #Readathon

I originally hadn’t signed up for this Autumn’s readathon because I had plans.  I had a wisdom tooth out a couple of days ago, though, and it was a bit more complicated than expected so I’m still taking it easy and recovering.  What better way […]

READ-A-THON TIME!  Given that I only decided that I was going to take part yesterday, I’m pretty excited.  Very excited, actually. I’ve never done one of the 24 hour read-a-thons “properly” and this time will be no exception. I have to work on Monday and […]

Bout of Books 11: Wrap-Up

Well.  The final couple of days of my read-a-thon, although filled with bookish goodness of a different kind, did not do much to my page count.  Rather than re-capping the weekend in a separate post, I’m going to just sort of recount and wrap-up all […]

Bout of Books 11: Over-Ambitious Goal Making Time

December Read-alongs and Read-a-Thon: Wrap up

Ah, Christmas!  I love you and I miss you already.  I should probably feel a teensy bit guilty about the fact that I drifted off round about the 18th, abandoning a couple of events that I was taking part in, but I had such a […]
