Middlemarch Chapter 29-42 and Link Up!
Guys, we're half way through Middlemarch ! I feel like this should be mentioned primarily because of its size rather than any difficulty with reading it because I don't know about you all but I'm still flying through it! In much the same way as last week wa...

My Joyful Things
I started Parcels of Joy as a way to pass on my excess baking, but the more parcels I make the more I find myself wanting to pick up things here and there to add to the parcels. I know most of the participants like books and lots of people have book wishlis...

#EliotAlong Week 1 Questions!
I mentioned vaguely in the kick off post that I might be posting prompt questions each week and I've decided it's probably a good idea. Of course you don't have to use them when you're posting about the book, but just in case you're stuck with what to write...

TBR Inspiration #1
I think I've mentioned before that whenever I've really loved a book I go and use the 'people who bought this also bought' feature on Amazon to make a list of 10-20 other books. I start with the title I loved and then click on a title in the also bought lis...

Stuff I've Read in 2016: Non-Fiction
So it's somehow June already, although the weather round here seems unsure of that, but anyway I just had my 29th birthday, which means we are definitely halfway through the year and I thought I'd like to do some posts about the awesome stuff I've been read...
