Questions for Book Bloggers!

Questions for book bloggersHello, you! Are you a book blogger? Then I have questions for you!

As many of you know, I am currently working on my Masters in Library and Information Science. This semester, I am taking a course called “Literacy, Reading, and Readers.” I have to do a final project for the course that centers on a topic about reading. I decided it would be a great idea to examine a community of which I am a part – book bloggers!

600 followers! Let me A your Qs!

Waddup, people!? Guess what!? I reached 600 followers last week!

and there was much rejoicing


I thought the thing to do would be to first say


for following, and commenting, and sharing, and liking, and being altogether great.

Nextly, I’d like to do a Q&A because I’ve seen other bloggers do this at milestones, and I have not done this, so why not get on the bandwagon?

Let me A your Qs! Qs can be about whatever you like. Just comment below, and I will respond in a forthcoming post and give you a shout-out!

Cause why not?



2016 in the books

Happy 2017, ya’ll! It’s time for a yearly wrap-up! 2016 was a successful year for me both in terms of reading and in terms of blogging. I also made a big personal life change in 2016. And now I’m gonna talk about all of it! Here’s my figures and facts now that 2016 is in the books.


As far as Goodreads goals are concerned, I went above and beyond my first goal for 2016. I originally set my goal at 30 books! 30! And I ended up reading 66! This was the first year I’ve ever increased my goal during the year because I was reading so much. This was in part due to readathon participation, and also in part due to the fact that I got to count many of the books I read for school on my Goodreads. Here’s some fun Goodreads facts about what I read this year:

IT’S NABLOPOMO! (and this post is gonna wander)


The one month of the year when I decide to do a blog post every day! What is this madness!?

Right now I am currently sitting at my desk at work, streaming the Cubs game and trying to look like nothing out of the ordinary is happening. (I work at a library, so by “desk” I mean the public help desk, so the trying-to-look-like-nothing-out-of-the-ordinary-is-happening thing is a challenge, ESPECIALLY WHEN ADDISON RUSSEL HITS A GRAND SLAM AND IT IS NOW 7 TO 0 IN THE 3RD INNING).

I honestly have no idea what to write about today – I had planned to do a “welcome to NaBloPoMo” post, but I pretty much already covered that in my last post, soooooo.


Here we are.

Day 1.
