April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon, Post #2


I'm taking a quick break from the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon. Just a short one, mind you, but a necessary one. A guy's got to eat breakfast right, and what's better than birthday carrot cake for breakfast?

Anyway, I thought I'd finish up Joe Hill's 20th Century Ghosts first off, but decided, in order to mix up the day a little, that I would read one story from the collection between each book that I read, so I've now moved on to beth Kephart's the Heart is Not a Size, and I've finished about half of that so far and am really enjoying it.

I've got myself nicely nested on my couch right now, with my coffee and stack of books, a pile of pillows, some good reading music in the CD player and a couple of bags of snacks for later (some almonds and some chips). I'm going to admit to leaving the house after I finish The Heart is Not a Size, as I have a couple of errands that I do have to run today, but then I'll be back and reading strong for the rest of the day!

Happy reading, everybody!!

Go book reader, go book reader, go book reader GOOOO! :-)

Hope you're having a great time!

I really want to read Joe Hill's collection (and Horns, too). I love Heart-Shaped Box!
