Mark, you are one of the most faithful commenters! I appreciate that so much. While I read every comment that comes through, a couple of years ago I decided to respond to comments left within 24-48 hours of a post going up as a way of guarding my time. Comments from old posts come in regularly and I love that those pieces resonate with people but there's no way to keep up with it without something else suffering. Since responding to comments is important to me, the 24-48 hour rule enables me to prioritize it without becoming captive to it. If that makes any sense.

The West Side Story reference is due to warring factions, which is a tongue in cheek way to describe how my readers appear to love and hate the same topics.

I've never completely bought the saying "curiosity killed the cat" because often my curiosity pays off in some way. It certainly did in the case of my first ever reader survey. Thank you to everyone who took the time to fill it out! The feedback was fascinating and very much... Continue reading

I loved so many books with author/editor heroines back in the day. Happy reading to you!

Now there's an interesting idea!

That's so good to know! I will persevere.

I haven't read either Morley book or the ones by Sarah Jio and Katherine Reay. But I read Possession ages ago and it would be perfect for this category! Great suggestion. I can't figure out why Fikry was a letdown either because it was an enjoyable read.

I dream of having a library with built-in bookcases someday. I'll be living vicariously through you while this project is underway!

The last year or so I've noticed what I hope is a trend. More novels featuring book lovers, bookstores, libraries, and all things book. These are not incidental to the story. They are the story. As a hardcore book nerd, this trend was made for me. I love books within... Continue reading

I am geeking out so hard right now. I am thrilled you love Jamie and Claire as much as I do. I can understand needing to take a break before reading the second book in the series because yes, those graphic scenes in Outlander are TOUGH and then some. It's been so long since I sped my way through the first 6 books (think I read them in a 3 month span) but I don't recall anything of a similar intensity after that. Book 2 opens in such a different way, I thought I was reading the wrong book at first but she just uses a different literary device to pick the story back up. The Rosie Project is SO FUN. There's a sequel coming out soon, too. If you have need of a hard-to-put-down YA series, look into the Grisha trilogy (Bardugo) or the Lunar Chronicles (Meyer). Lauren Graham's novel Someday, Someday, Maybe is an enjoyable read, too, especially because it takes place during the 90s. Right now I'm reading The Brothers K (not to be confused with The Brothers Karamazov), Our Great Big American God, and a few others.

If you're reading via email or a feed reader, you'll need to click over to the blog for this one. Thank you! I have a confession: I feel like I know you. Maybe not all of you but enough of you. I have an idea of your interests and why... Continue reading

I've been thinking about the Air Purifier ever since you first posted about it.

Let me know if you figure it out! There were so many interesting flavors.
Yes, The Brothers K is its own thing. I think you'll like it. We'll have to discuss once we're both done!
Interesting! I've never heard of Margaret Weis or that series. I love series and characters that stay with you that way. The "bury the body" reference is the same as the "move a body" one.
Absolutely agree about Outlander. It's been so long since I read the first book so I'm sure I've missed some of the ways they've put their own spin on the story but even so, it all rings true to me. The actors are doing an amazing job.
I hope you've been able to track book 2 down!
I'm so glad you could feel God speaking to you in the midst of your difficulties, Linda.
Thank you, Sarah.
The September Edition. There are a few likely reactions to those words. Your heart beats with excitement and you nod in anticipation. You know what the reference but you don't care. You have no idea what I'm talking about. Your level of interest may be a direct reflection of your... Continue reading

Stairs by my house. Attempting to climb them in heels is not for the weak. August kicked off the last of this year's major transitions. This was my last week as a nanny, today is my last day. Suffice it to say, I've cried a lot the last couple of... Continue reading
