Books and Adaptations

Hello again! I am back in Boston as of late last night (early this morning) and they weather is gorgeous. I read many great books while abroad including a thriller/mystery series. My sister-in-law had obtained a collection of books from...

The Summer Interlude

Well readers, I was right - my enthusiasm for school seems to be dutifully returning now that I've had a sufficient break. My online class, LIS456: Records Management, starts in a week and I am looking forward to it. As...

Local Discoveries

I'm not going to lie, I've kind of failed on the planned adventuring. As I said last time in my post, I was planning on discovering more of Massachusetts on the weekends, and I was going to plan out my...

E-Readers, Tree Books, Libraries & Traveling

Currently I am in Manchester England. The UK is a place I visit often as my husband is from England. I was never much of the E-reader type. I like to hold my books, collect them, smell them, all the...

I haven't put together a proper book list in quite some time, and I figure this is one of the best places to post such a thing. I'll tell you a little bit about some of the books I've read...

An Apprehensive Baseball Fan

Baseball Season is upon on. Opening games were just last week! I was never one to really watch baseball on television (so long!), but I did enjoy watching the World Series last year (ASTROS!). I do enjoy going to games...

Due to some marvelous twist of fate, I indeed have some of this coveted free time mentioned in the title, even in the midst of three classes, two part-time jobs, and an internship. Phew. Did I mention that the twist...
