Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read In a Day

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature from The Broke and the Bookish. Let me just say that I'm not really good at reading books in one sitting. I'm not even very good at reading one book at a time. If I've "lost" my current book around the house, I'll just pick up another one. … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read In a Day

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I’m Eager to Read Next Year

2016 is drawing to a close, and 2017 is right around the bend (so obviously it's time to start outlining book choices for the new year).

Top Ten Tuesday: 5 of My Audiobook Experiences

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is all about audio, so I thought I'd talk about audiobooks.

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books that Have Been on my TBR Since I First Set Up a Goodreads Account

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish. In college I took a required class that I hated--a library studies class that taught you how to use the databases.

The best thing to come out of that class was the discovery of … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books that Have Been on my TBR Since I First Set Up a Goodreads Account
