Ready for the Weekend Reading Notes


I love this image and what with the cold weather we've been having and the short days already so grey and cloudy-filled, there is something inviting about this image. It looks so nice and cozy there, and I shall be...

Boccaccio's Mrs. Rosie & the Priest


Penguin Little Black Classic #1 Mrs. Rosie and the Priest Who would have thought a 14th century Italian classic written at about the time of the Black Death would be such a hoot. The four "tales" (I think they are...

A Midweek Mishmash and Miscellanea

The last time I wrote a proper short story post was in August. And the very beginning of August at that. I have missed writing about them, and more, I miss reading them with the regularity I used to. If...

A Few Holiday Bookish Temptations


I've managed to (mostly) avoid the retail side of this past long weekend. I really struggle with the commercialization of the holidays, but I admit I did spend a little time at the bookstore over the weekend. I took home...

November 24: Holiday Reading Notes


Hooray for long weekends. Mine starts right now. Four blissful days of relaxation and much (I hope) reading, maybe a little letter-writing and/or stitching and weather permitting a few walks (because I have every intention of indulging in a piece...
