    50 Classics I Want to Read Before I Die

    A couple of years ago I made myself a list of 50 classic books I want to read before I die. There’s a variety of reasons I want to read these books and I’m pretty sure I’m not going to enjoy all of them but the list has been made. Anyway, I just wanted to create a place where this list can be downloaded for anyone else who is interested. Download it here!

  • 2023 Goals

    all my goals for 2023

    We are officially over halfway through January and I’m just now getting to this post. (Maybe one of my goals for the year should be to write this post earlier.) I had wanted to write this post earlier (as well as a few others) but with R2 and BB8 unexpectedly stay at our place for ten days I am still feeling a little behind. So, even though this post is later than I wanted, I still want to write it so I can have this to refer back on. Plus, sharing the goals helps me want to achieve them a bit more. I like to make my goals a mix…


    current ebook DEALS

    Every now and then I like to get sucked into Amazon’s ebook deals (despite not really being an e-reader myself). I thought I would share the ones that jumped out at me with you, I’ve even organized them by genre! Here are a few I found that seem interesting and are currently on sale (usually they are about $1.99 but some are even cheaper): MYSTERY & SUSPENSE THE LINE BETWEEN I really enjoyed this book, it’s the book that got me interested in cult books. When Wynter Roth finally escapes from New Earth, a self-contained doomsday cult on the American prairie, she emerges into a world poised on the brink…

  • An Incomplete List of 2023 Reading Challenges and Readathons

    an incomplete LIST of the 2023 READING CHALLENGES & READATHONS

    I highly doubt that most blogging gurus would suggest naming a list blog post an incomplete one, but I’m not going to lie, this list will not include all the 2023 reading challenges out there. That just seems like setting myself up for failure. Thus, an incomplete list. I do plan on coming back to this list throughout the year as I come across new challenges but if you know of some coming up that I am unaware of, I would love for you to leave a comment below and I’ll add it to the list! That all being said, I attempted to do this last year and completely failed.…
