“Ah, how good it is to be among people who are reading.”
~Rainer Maria Rilke
“I love the world of words, where life and literature connect.”
~Denise J Hughes
“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.”
~Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, they teach us about our world, and they help us to understand human experience.”
~Madeleine Riley, Top Shelf Text
I’m working on my A-Z of Me, Part 2 post and posts for Mother’s Day and one all about Book Clubs (including book club recommendations). Plus I have reviews coming up for two great reads: Ask Again, Yes and The Scent Keeper.
My Spring TBR:
I’m making progress on my spring TBR…check here for updates. Five books remain and I’m debating on whether or not I want to wait for my library holds to come in or purchase them (keep hoping for a kindle deal, too).
