2019 Blogging/Reading Resolutions

This year my resolutions are short and sweet. Birdie resolves to use not be so strict in her blogging schedule. In 2016 and 2017 I was able to blog religiously, regularly, following a pretty steady schedule.  2018, it was more of a struggle, and I spent a lot of time agonizing over it.  I started […]

2018 Beat the Backlist RESULTS!

2018 Beat the Backlist has come to an end.  How did I do?  Meh… I guess I did okay.  Not great. I read 15 books I consider part of ‘Beat the Backlist’.  What I qualify are books I put on my TBR list before 2018, and they were published before 2018.  I also don’t count […]

We’re BACK, Bit… ahem- Blogging Buddies!

Let me just say, taking a month off blogging was HARD!  I didn’t even realize how addicted and habitual Birdie Bookworm has become.  Seriously, I had to work to not come on and update stuff.  Frequently I failed!  Angie Elle called me out once, when she noticed my ‘currently reading’ magically update.  I also couldn’t resist responding […]
