Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts #102

January 5, 2018 | No comments


1. Happy New Year! This last year fly by, and I’m so ready for what this year will bring.

2. 2017 was quite a varied reading year for me. I had a bit of a reading slump for a couple of months, but still managed to read over 200 books. There were a lot of pretty bad or forgettable books. I’m determined that 2018 will be a better year.

3. The 2018 reading year started excellently with Ann Patchett’s Commonwealth (which Kate has been raving about). I don’t venture outside of my comfort zone of mysteries and thrillers that often, but this one was one of the best books I’ve read in a long time.

4. This is definitely my kind of superhero.

5. Have you seen New York Times’ Literary calendar for 2018?

6. Tomorrow is Saturday and the first 6 Degrees of Separation of the year. The starting book is Alexander McCall Smith’s No.1 Ladies Detective Agency. Are you joining in on the fun?

7. One of my Christmas gifts was a one year subscription to Kindle Unlimited. I think it will be a great supplement to my library accounts.

8. I want one of these.
