October Reading Wrap Up


Happy Monday and Happy Halloween! I am adding a new feature here on the blog, a monthly reading wrap up. Since I read lots of books throughout the year it's sometimes hard to review every single book/audio book that I read/listen to. One of the things that many of the BookTubers I follow do that I really enjoy are monthly wrap ups. I love the concept because it seems to take the pressure off of getting a review written and posted immediately after finishing a book.  I figured that monthly wrap ups would work just as well here on my blog. I will be giving short reviews for each book that I read within these wrap up posts or link to full length reviews if I was able to write one. October was a pretty good reading month for me. I read ten books, 3 comic books, and listened to two audio books. I'm on a roll and will hopefully make my Goodreads challenge number by the end of the year! I hope you enjoy this new addition to my postings. 

Happy Reading!

Book Cataloging App Help Needed!



Bookish friends I need your help! I need to know how you conveniently keep track of what you have on your physical book shelf. I would like to use a book app on my phone so that I always have my catalog with me, but I need recommendations on which apps are really user friendly and have helpful features. While glorying in my latest grab of book bargains yesterday, I discovered that I really need to have a way of cataloging the books that I own so that I don't double buy. Since I am trying to rebuild my physical library I have accidentally purchased the same book twice several times because while standing with a fifty cents book in my hand I figure it's better to err on the side of caution than not have a book that I've been wanting. I'm not being a good bargain shopper if I'm purchasing more than I need, right? Anyhoo, I found a box of books that I had stuck away, forgotten about, and rediscovered yesterday. And of course, I now have doubles again! (Don't judge!) I really need to keep this from happening again, it's redundant and ridiculous I know! I know that there are apps out there that allow you to scan your books and that's exactly what I would like. I'm going to download a few apps this weekend and give them a try, but I would love to know what you use and what you like and dislike about the app. 

Thanks in advance!

Friday Book Sales


Happy Friday folks! I hope that you all had a great week and are all geared up for the weekend. If you are celebrating Halloween early, please be safe while having a great time! If you are like me, with no kiddos to take trick or treating and aren't into all of the Halloween hubbub, I hope that you find time for some relaxing and reading. I'm headed to my local library's book sale today, so I am hoping to find lots of bargain goodies there. That's about the best Halloween treat that I could have asked for! However, if there isn't a book sale near you this weekend, here are a few ebook bargains to take you into your weekend. As prices can change at any moment, don't forget to double check the price before clicking!

October Book Haul


Today's book haul features smutty goodness, cave dwellers, a dysfunctional family, a woman with special gifts, and a book of poetry. Yep, it has it all! A trip to visit with my sister on Saturday landed me at her local Goodwill and I can't believe that I had never stopped into it before. I scored plenty of book goodness! The Earth's Children series is one of my favorite series and I would love to collect them all in hardback, but I found book two through five in these mint condition trade editions and I was thrilled. I also found some unexpected romance books that I snapped up along with a book of poetry from Alice Walker. I am in no way a fan of poetry, and know little to nothing about good poetry. But what I stumbled across was in like new condition and I figured that I couldn't start in any better place than with a collection by Alice Walker. I also added two general fiction books to the pile. I'm telling you, if you don't hit up your local Goodwill and thrift stores for books, you are missing out! I bought 18 books for $18-you can't beat that with a stick! I hope you enjoy browsing through my latest additions to my book stash!

Happy Reading!
