Passing on a Love of Reading from Mother to Daughter
I swear my mom wasn't a child bride! She was 21 when I was born, she just doesn't look it. My mom and I don't look much alike in coloring... although as I get older people tell me I smile like she does! And we're not much alike in personality (she's a homeb...

The Tyranny of the Library
Ironically, given how my last post was about how I wasn't reading at all, I'm now drowning in books. I somehow failed to suspend any holds, and so pretty much all of them arrived at once. Thus, for the next three weeks I will be frantically reading as fast ...
Ironically, given how my last post was about how I wasn't reading at all, I'm now drowning in books. I somehow failed to suspend any holds, and so pretty much all of them arrived at once.

Hi! I haven't blogged much lately, because I've had an unfortunate case of food poisoning, due to that piece of pie pictured above (insert angry face here). It wiped me out this week, phew. It also resulted in me binge-watching 17 episodes of West Wing, instead of reading.
