That Artsy Reader Girl hosts Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly themed blogging meme for book lovers. This week, the theme is “Favorite Bookmarks”, so keep reading to see which ones I consider to be favorites from my personal collection.
The first seven days of National Novel Writing Month 2019 have gone by – how are you doing? Hanging in there? Ready for more? Going out to stock up on your writing snacks? Getting some extra sleep? Whatever you’re doing to ready yourself for the next week of NaNoWriMo, I hope you take a little time to reflect on your progress so far.
November is typically the month in which I start looking back on the books I read throughout the year, and those I didn’t get to. For the past couple of years this has also meant looking at the books on my own bookshelves that still sit unread – and this year is no exception. So this month’s From My Bookshelf post features three books that fit this criteria, and one more thing they have in common: they were all written by Lauren Willig.
Happy Halloween, fellow readers and bloggers. 🎃 I hope you were able to read whatever scary, thrilling, mysterious, or non-spooky books caught your eye this month. I had quite a good reading month myself, which I hope continues through to the end of the year (because somehow we’re almost there!)
Today’s post contains my reactions, comments, and subsequent ponderings that came about during and after reading a “Cultural Comment” piece from The New Yorker. It happened to be in one of my social media feeds, and I barely hesitated before clicking: Should We Pay to Enter Bookstores? by contributor Howard Fishman.
Just like in 2016 when I wrote the first Reading Nook Inspiration post, writer’s block has currently made itself quite comfortable in my brain. And since I’m also feeling the mild effects of an end-of-the-month reading slump, I’m turning to books and a reading nook that are not mine to satisfy my need for creative inspiration and serenity.
