Book Thoughts: Book Connections
Do you ever read a book and are amazed at how it connects to another totally unrelated book you've read? This happened to me while I was reading The Gene . There is a section in the book discussing sexuality and the search for the "gay gene." The author, in...

Lazy Sunday Thoughts: A Weird Week and a Sad Goodbye
This has been a weird week. After a run of bad luck (including stepping on a nail), I was called back to work. Yay, money! I'm trying to get my ducks in a row before I start working. With the summer almost ended, I'm looking forward to a regular schedule wi...
Thoughts on this week's events, including The Tragically Hip.

Victorian Chaise-Longue Time Machine
Time travel isn't all fun and games. Sometimes, instead of having sexytimes with a red headed Scotsman, you end up trapped in the body of a sickly Victorian woman. That's the situation Melanie Langdon finds herself in when she falls asleep on her antique-st...

Media Madness...Tuesday?
This is sorta Media Madness Monday but it's not Monday. Since I'm not doing a lot of reading, I am doing a lot of other things. Including watching Netflix. Grace and Frankie is a series I've been watching the last couple of weeks. The title characters' husb...

I'm halfway through The Fireman for the Fireman Readalong . Not sure where other participants are or what they think but here are some of my thoughts at this point. I didn't know much about the plot starting out. Turns out there is a contagious fungus that ...

Currently: Hello?
I haven't posted in over a week. I remember a time when if this happened I would be freaking out. Now I'm not that concerned that I haven't posted in 10 days. I'm feeling pretty blah about the internet. I'm probably not going to be posting as often for some...

The Stuff We're Made Of: The Gene
Genetics fascinates me. Just looking at family photos makes me wonder why does so-and-so look more like this ancestor than that one? Why did I end up with this nose? But genetics is more than skin deep. It shapes how we behave, and what challenges we will f...

Hello August!
I realize it's the middle of August and I'm just saying hello to it now. Summer has been busy and full of distractions. I have started around 5 books since the summer began and I'm in various stages of reading them. Usually when I get like this I can listen...

Final Thoughts on The Fireman #firemanalong
Now that's it's officially the last week of July and The Fireman Readalong , I think it's safe to write my final thoughts on the book. From my last post: There is a contagious fungus that causes spontaneous combustion in the human carriers. This contagion i...

Random July Thoughts
Today was a sunny day. I am in a good mood and hope to stay that way, so I thought it was time for a blog post. Maybe just some Randomness! I finished The Fireman for the Fireman Readalong. I flew through it. I put some thoughts together for a review post. ...
Oh hello! Some random thoughts this July.

What Is Happening to Mr Fox
I wanted to give Helen Oyeyemi a try but didn't know where to start. When I read an author for the first time, I like to find something they wrote at my library. It's a safer risk. My library had Mr Fox . Mr Fox is an author who writes books in which women ...

Frankenstein and #FiremanAlong
First look at this button! It is very dramatic. Heather from Capricious Reader created it. What is the Fireman Readalong? A bunch of people reading The Fireman by Joe Hill in July hosted by Care and co-hosted by Heather. It's a 768 page book. So, it might r...
