My 2014 Reading Wrap-Up

DoingDeweysYearInReview

I’m not sure you’ll be as excited about this as I am, but we’re about to talk about STATS! This year, I used a spreadsheet from Nicki at Fyrefly’s Book Blog and it was pretty much the best thing ever. It wasn’t much effort to move my information from goodreads to the spreadsheet and most of the info goodreads doesn’t directly track could still easily be found on their website. Continue reading

Nonfiction November Week 4 Wrap Up

cork w booksWe made it everyone! Although I’m sad to be wrapping up Nonfiction November today, I had a fantastic time and I hope you all did too. I always love seeing nonfiction reviews from other book bloggers, so reading everyone’s posts and reviews this month was a real joy for me. This past week, we topped off our month long celebration of nonfiction with a look back at all the books we added to our to-read lists throughout the month. Like Kim said for the first week, recapping everything from every post would be overwhelming, so below I’m going to share with you one book each blogger added to their TBR. Continue reading

Don’t Know What To Read Next? Ask Anne!

c14XRrOp

 I received a free trial of Anne Knows Books in exchange for my feedback and honest review.

When I was invited to a free trial of Anne Knows Books, I was intrigued. The idea of having someone take the time to learn your tastes in books and recommend books for you personally seemed very fun and kind of decadent to me. Honestly, it’s not a service I would have tried had I not been offered a free trial. I have a very hard time saying no to ARCs, so I typically accept as many as I can, which means paying to have another book to read every month didn’t sound like something I needed. However, I enjoyed the service enough that I’d like to share it with you since I think some of you might really enjoy it.
