Books read in September

It is probably not considered unusual by this point that my monthly reading list contains only one book. Rather than letting this bother me, I will see it as an opportunity to spend a little more space on this little paperback.

Prepare yourself for lists of adjectives. (more…)


Library of the soul (book read in August)

We all have a story. Mine includes where I was born, how I spent a lot of holidays as a child on the road, when I went to school, how I spent the majority of weekends in the library…

Books read in November and December

November

Yet again this seems to have turned into an every-second-month post. I actually considered whether I should change the series to only update every two months, if that is what seems more natural. However, I’ve decided that it was a coincidence that it happened twice in a row. I couldn’t post September’s update, because my laptop was in the shop for a hard drive transplant. I didn’t post November’s update due to NaNoWriMo and pure exhaustion. It was circumstantial why this happened. So these posts will continue the same way they have before. I really enjoy writing them and I hope someone enjoys reading them.

So let’s move on to the exciting stuff.

Books read in September and October

Hey guys, so we’re doing things a little differently today. You may remember that I took an unexpected blog hiatus when my almost-five-year-old laptop’s hard drive failed. Last when I posted my laptop was still in for repairs and I didn’t know how much data I was going to lose. (more…)

Banned books week 2014

Banned books week 2014

So¬†last week¬†I started talking about book banning. This week is the yearly Banned Books Week when book lovers from all over the world celebrate free speech.
