reading time

to read list for May
I started a long to-read list while I was doing my library practicum last semester and as soon as I was finished with school I placed a bunch of books on hold. Now, I've been playing a game with myself by trying to read these books before they're due.

I've also been more diligent in keeping my goodreads page up to date. You can friend me and see what I've been reading by clicking on the goodreads link in the sidebar of my website.

Evening ritual
It's fun to sit on the couch with Jon and the kitties at night and lounge and read instead of researching or writing papers on my computer.

PS. My Kandinsky quilt was featured on the blog, quiltporn, on Sunday. Wendy has been featuring gorgeous quilts on her blog. Check it out!

  2. There are times when I find piles of books at our library that I absolutely must check out -- and then I end up going online to renew them several times over because my expectations were just too high. Keep on plowing through those novels.
    And I love that quilt that the kitty is lounging on. Greens are appealling to me these days.

  3. I always love seeing photos of your home, it looks so modern. You have quite the pile of books to read before they are due, but I'm sure with your extra time now you'll get them read.
    That's cool that your quilt was on another blog, it is a really cool quilt!

  6. Looks like one book will be overdue no matter how fast you read it! lol Too cute! It's so nice to be able to kick and enjoy a little bit of pleasure-reading after tons of student-y stuff - Hope you relish each word!
    Great news about your quilt, too.

  12. Oh! Catching Fire! Hurry! Read it! It soooo good. It's pretty much all the rage at my middle school- every teacher and kid seems to have read it.
    That third book can't get here soon enough.
