It's Monday! What Are You ReadingPin It

It’s Monday, which means it is time again to hook up with the dedicated readers of the Book Date Blog and start talking about the kinds of things we’re all currently reading. I read a couple of things last week that I am working on reviews for… And I also waited until the last minute to read my comic book club pick for this month.

Happy Mail ::Holiday Mail Dates::

The USPS went above and beyond today and published the dates for holiday mailing this year–this is PRICELESS information if you are like me and send letters (you know, partially to keep the lines of communication open and partially because YAY!). These are the dates you need to keep in mind for domestic items:

My Grown Up Pen

AlwaysReiding_PenPin It

I’ve made no secret of my love for pens AND for fountain pens. Since I’d had much more luck with a TWSBI Eco pen (no calluses on my finger like on the Lamy Safari pens I’d started with), I decided to take the plunge and get a TWSBI Vac pen–it’s a pen that runs over $50 (which I never thought I would spend on a pen),

It’s Monday! What are You Reading?

It’s Monday, which means it is time again to hook up with the dedicated readers of the Book Date Blog and start talking about the kinds of things we’re all currently reading.

I got my Litsy #RetellingsSwap in the mail, and boy am I excited. We were tasked to send out something related to fairy tale retellings and I sent out a sleeping beauty themed package with a hardcover and a paperback and some sleepy-goodies.

Admission to the Human Zoo: Standing Strong by Teresa Giudice

First off, I am starting this post off by explaining the plot to a tv show episode that will allow this headline to make sense. Yes, I know, it’s a sad day when I have to explain myself, but this will all make sense shortly.

Seth McFarlane (who I am not a huge fan of to begin with) has a show on right now called The Orville.

It’s Monday, What are you Reading?

I finished last week having finished NO BOOKS. But, I was able to keep up on some housekeeping stuff, so that worked pretty well.

If I finish four books this week, I’ll have hit 200. And I want to get more of those in Goodreads. I’m planning on finishing a Murder She Wrote book, and one of the Game of Thrones books from last week–we shall see.
