The Mind Club AND No Second Chance

The Mind Club and No Second Chance. A nerdy science book and a murder mystery. Mix it up. How to read two books a week….don’t get bored. Also, don’t be afraid to ABORT as I did with a book titled “Middlesex.”

Dark Matter AND My Sister’s Keeper

Dark Matter kept showing up as a best seller on every book site I visited, so I figured I should read it while its hot, I read it in two days. My Sister’s Keeper was an accidental read, I picked up the book for 10cents at a local thrift shop.

1776 and Too Late to Say Goodbye

In order to complete reading two books this week I had to pick the second book based upon if it was a faster read or not. While 1776 took me most of the week Too Late To Say Goodbye took less than 2 days to read.   David McCullough – 1776 Question, why wasn’t History…

Oryx and Crake AND The Professor and the Madman

Lots of words this week. Oryx and Crake was written by a poetic storyteller and painter of words. The Professor and the Madman is a thrilling story about creating the Oxford English Dictionary. One I loved, one not so much.

The Selection Series

Kiera Cass – The Selection Series

I binged this set. I purchased the “boxed set” in my Summer Book order, read all 4 books in 3 days and then found out there was a 5th book. Gracious!

Books for Photographers

Are you a photographer and an avid reader? It helps if your a bit of an adventurer, but who calls themselves a photographer and reader but DOESN’T enjoy adventure? No one that I can think of. Enjoy!

How to host a book swap party…

What is a book swap party?! Good question. Basically a bunch of grown-ups grab two of their lightly used (already read) books and meet to drink a bunch of coffee or wine, visit with other grown ups and go home with two new-to-them books to read. The best part, its free to attend! No sales pitches, no catalogs to look through, and no wait for product to arrive.

Books that change your heart…

These two books have never left me. Not only do they pull my heart-strings, but they would be great books to help someone “get back into reading.”
