The Book Corner: A Few Favourite Reads

Let’s talk about books. It’s been a while since we’ve had a bookish conversation around here. In truth I fell out of reading at the end of last year.

Thought of the Day #33: Books

Thought of the Day 22: Written into Story

‘To be written into story. That was how even the lost lived on.’ I’ve just finished Martha Brockenbrough’s book The Game of Love and Death and it had me completely hooked from the start. It’s a unique story about a game that Love and Death have been playing forever. There’s been Romeo & Juliet and… Read more »

Life Rambles: Top 10 of Now

So it’s been been awhile since one of these posts. I definitely managed one in March, but not so much for April. Although there was a Top 10 of Deal which was sort of the same thing. Maybe. These last few weeks have been manically busy – do I start every post off with that?… Read more »

The Book Corner: Recent Purchases

For the last couple of months I’ve been having such trouble getting into a book. Normally I can read two books a week easily, but since mid-March I’ve only read five books, I just don’t know what is wrong with me! You’d think that with my current reading issues I’d have stopped buying books. After… Read more »
