Last week, my friend Emily Conrad posted a Bingo card titled “Show Your Favorite Authors Some Love” and challenged everyone to claim a row. It’s a good card, but it seemed as if a few things were still missing.

Me: If I did a personalized grid, it would say things like “Take book to church and foist it on an unsuspecting friend” and “Turn favorite dialogue snippets into a musical, which you sin...

Wow. This book lands hard. Wonderfully researched and written, and terrible in its implications. A near-flawless recounting of a chilling conspiracy of murder and greed. Americans, let's learn our country's full history. Strongly recommended.

This is absolutely delightful. Pitch-perfect middle grade fiction about a girl who just wants to be accepted on her own terms. Heartfelt, sweet, and often funny. [3.5 stars]

“In this sense, Rachel envied fictional characters. For them, everything would eventually make sense. If she were fictional, all the random, ridiculous events of her life would mold into a recognizable shape, building toward something. She would recognize signs, portents, and foreshadowing. In real life, however, no such clues were forthcoming.”

“I am no longer afraid of getting old. Indeed I can't believe I ever said anything so stupid. So childish. So offensive and arrogant.
But mainly, so very, very stupid. I desperately want to grow old.”

I'm sad you've been so ill, but totally happy that you've been meeting goals and taking names. I'll be interested for your input on the post I've written for the blog. It's going up tomorrow and focuses on the money side of how you can afford to read a lot.


Rachel Sooo.... I found a benefit to being homebound with illness for ALL of 2015. (drumroll) My goal is to read 365 books, and hit 100,000 pages! lol... I discovered in August that I was about 5 books behind the numerical day of the year, so I've been working toward that goal. This month, I realized I was at 79,000 pages, so that's my secondary goal. Having a blast! Of course, I would be fine with a miraculous recovery, too... but while I'm down, I might as well stretch my horizons, right?!
