Falling Asleep While Reading: A Saga

This summer I’ve encountered a dilemma that I haven’t really ever had to deal with before: I keep falling asleep while reading. Now, I’ve never really been much of a night owl. I’ve always preferred going to bed around 11pm and getting up at 7am to going to bed at 2am and getting up at … Continue reading Falling Asleep While Reading: A Saga

IN THE LAKE OF THE WOODS by Tim O’Brien | Reflection

In my Postmodern American Fiction class this past semester, we were assigned to write a page reflection each week on the book that we read. I actually really enjoyed writing these reflections because they were a chance to choose a specific aspect of the book and discuss it in depth without needed to come to … Continue reading IN THE LAKE OF THE WOODS by Tim O’Brien | Reflection

Is it possible to read TOO MUCH into a book? | Discussion

We’ve all been there: sitting through a high school English class as the teacher goes on about the symbolism of the yellow car and Doctor T. J. Eckleburg’s ever-watching eyes in The Great Gatsby, wondering whether or not F. Scott Fitzgerald really intended for us to dissect every move of his pen. Is it possible to … Continue reading Is it possible to read TOO MUCH into a book? | Discussion

Why I Love the Libby App for Audiobooks

Up until a few years ago, I had never really been a fan of audiobooks. My local public library had these little devices that solely played audiobooks, which I would check out from time to time if my family was going on a longer road trip or vacation and I knew I would have time … Continue reading Why I Love the Libby App for Audiobooks

Say hello to my typewriter!

Ever since I was younger I wanted a typewriter. For some reason I have a thing for machines that produce direct, tangible results. If you know my in person, then you're probably well aware of my love of polaroids--my infatuation with typewriters falls along those same lines. I adore the idea of creating something beautiful--a … Continue reading Say hello to my typewriter!

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I’ve (Shamelessly & Proudly) Written In

Happy Tuesday! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share our unpopular bookish opinions. However, I thought I would hone in on one unpopular bookish opinion and share ten examples of it instead. Perhaps one of my most controversial book habits is that I often annotate and … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I’ve (Shamelessly & Proudly) Written In
