Mailbox Mondays are hosted by the ladies over on the Mailbox Monday blog.  What finds have you added to your collection this week? GUYS GUYS GUYS. I am so excited because it’s been an ETERNITY since I bought books for myself. Like, real books.  Audible gives me two audiobooks a month, but those cannot grace my glorious bookshelves! AH SO EXCITED. But seriously, the reason I never buy books anymore is, frankly, I AM OUT OF ROOM.  It’s tragic.  I have 2.5 bookcases now in our small apartment, and the third is empty in the office that was supposed to be a […]

Mailbox Mondays are hosted by the ladies over on the Mailbox Monday blog.  Hop on over to see the rest of today’s linkups and show them some love! Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had deliciously lovely weekends. Just one book in the mailbox this week – another one of the dystopias I felt the compelling need to add to my collection, but never did. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley was required reading my freshman year of high school (alongside 1984… it was a good year for dystopias).  I remember very little of it, save the fact that genetic engineering was involved.  I […]

Mailbox Mondays are hosted by the ladies over on the Mailbox Monday blog.  Hop on over to see the rest of today’s linkups and show them some love! Hello my loves!  Happy Monday!  I hope everybody got through the weekend alright – I know for some of us, it’s been a struggle… physically… emotionally… politically…. But I digress! I know last week I said I was done ordering hard copy books for a while, but last Wednesday, I panicked a little bit.  This was part “state of the world” and part “I’ve just started reading 1984“.  In my frenzied stupor, I’ve […]

Good morning all!  I hope everyone had a delightful weekend. I’m afraid this may be my last mailbox Monday until my next Audible haul, unless I come across something completely delicious.  My last two books from my Thriftbooks purchase came in last week.  They’re both sequels to books I’m currently reading and I’m excited to add them to my TBR pile! Something Rotten is the fourth installment in the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde.  Thursday Next is one of the few series that can make me laugh out loud, and yet somehow I seem to only manage to get […]

I don’t buy a lot of books anymore, because my bookshelves are at capacity and I live in an apartment building.  Nonetheless, when I realized I had a coupon to Thriftbooks (I love Thriftbooks), I couldn’t resist.  The first of the books came this week! I listened to The Help by Kathryn Stockett last fall and fell in love with the power of the story again.  The film is an excellent testament to the tale, but the book is even stronger.  I’m proud to have this one as part of my library.  Each woman featured in this book is a pillar […]
