Reading Rainbow: Part IX

It’s time to dust off the old blog because it’s that time of the year again! There were several page poor periods during the past year, but a last minute sprint while trying to catch up with my Reading Challenge goal resulted in a generally strong finish. As always, there were some serious stinkers but […]

Reading Rainbow: Part VIII

I’m sorry to disappoint you. I know you were looking forward to an entire year of not hearing from me. As it is, this post is dangerously behind schedule.Β My reading calendar is August-July.

Reading Rainbow VI

Well, I did it! I went more than a year without posting anything. The reason for my inexcusable slothfulness can be explored another time. For now, it’s time to post the sixth annual list of books I read during the past year. As usual, I read some very good books and I also read some […]

If you’re feeling particularly masochistic, you can catch up on previous reads here: Reading Rainbow: Part III Reading […]

Blogging about Books is Not Gluten-Free

So, if this isn’t worth blogging about then what is? Yesterday I busted out the wheat grinder and made bread for the first time in my life. It became quickly apparent that I have mad lack of skillz when it comes to making bread. Nevertheless, it turned out pretty well. Β I’m eating some right now. […]

Reading Rainbow: Part III

After an absolutely dismal performance last year, I adjusted my reading goal and renewed my effort. The last two years I set a goal to read 30 books during the year. Although I met my goal the first year I fell short last year. This year my goal was to read 50 books and I […]

Reading Rainbow: Part II

About two years ago I set a goal to read 30 books each year. Last year I posted a list of 30 books that I read. It’s that time of the year again, but woefully I fell short. This year I made it to 25. And that’s if you count the two audio books I […]
