Top Ten Tuesday: Sip, Munch, Read

Happy Tuesday!! This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share our favorite things to eat and drink while reading. I generally like drinking tea or coffee and eating sweets when I read--but I think I'll let my bookstagram speak for itself... As you can see, we love a … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Sip, Munch, Read

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

When the line between work and play is blurred, it can suddenly feel … Continue reading Avoiding Book Burnout as an English Major

What does it mean to be a “relevant” reader? | Discussion

Today I'd like to talk about a topic that I've been thinking about a lot lately: What does it mean to be a "relevant" reader? Recently I watched a video by Ariel Bissett in which she talks about the pressure in the online book community to read certain books as soon as possible to be … Continue reading What does it mean to be a “relevant” reader? | Discussion

2017 Resolutions: How did I do?

Last January I made this list of my top ten bookish resolutions for 2017... and now the time has come to see how I did! I've completely forgotten what my resolutions were, so this should be an interesting trip down memory lane. 1. Read 24 books. Done! Somehow the stars aligned this year and I actually … Continue reading 2017 Resolutions: How did I do?
