In Which I Do Not Read Books:  Off-the-Grid Readathon V Review

In Which I Do Not Read Books: Off-the-Grid Readathon V Review

Hey guys! Last weekend, I participated in the fifth Off-The-Grid Readathon!  If y’all’ve been around the block a while, you know that I’ve been participating in this one every time it comes up, usually with a lot of success (back in January, I got through six books!).  For me, this is a super fun one because there’s no goals and no requirements – really, the point of it is just to get off social media for a minute and read.

So Many Classics! #MailboxMonday

So Many Classics! #MailboxMonday

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 […]
