December 2018 Book Haul


I did so well NOT buying new books for the first half of 2018, but then something bad happened… I discovered Book Outlet.  Sure I had heard of it before, but I never allowed myself to check it out because I was scared it would be the death of my book buying self control.  I was right.  The second half of the year was a bit out of control in the book buying department.  I tried not to go too crazy buying books in December because of this.

Let’s see which books I purchased in December…

Goodbye August & hello September!

I don’t know about you all, but once August  hits, my life is go-go-go until the end of October.  With my kids returning to school & fall sports, my schedule is back to chaos.  My August was a tad more busy since I decided to start the process of applying for a substitute license.  The plan is to sub two days a week this school year, then find something full time in the district next school year when my daughter starts kindergarten.   I am excited to dip my toes back into the work force after being a stay-at-home parent for the past 5 years.

With everything I had going on, I am actually pleasantly surprised that I was able to read 8 books in August.  Unfortunaly, it wasn’t a big quality reading month for me.  I don’t think I’ve ever given out so many 2 star ratings in one month before…
