Posted October 16, 2018 / 30 Comments

Most people dream of vacations in exotic locales or famous historical sites. I dream of vacations to awesome bookstores, book towns, and libraries.

Happy Tuesday! Today is a Back-To-School theme for Top Ten Tuesday, so I thought I’d use this space to talk about books that a) are fiction and b) still taught me something & inspired me to learn more. Because anyone who says that stories don’t teach is clearly (and sadly) […]

It’s still Tuesday, right? My sincere apologies for the delay in posting today… but hopefully better late than never? Today’s official TTT topic is “Books I Disliked/Hated but Am Really Glad I Read (maybe just for bragging rights)” but honestly I can’t think of any. Generally if I disliked/hated a […]
