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!

Fragment Friday (1): Room by Emma Donoghue

Welcome to my first edition of Fragment Friday, a weekly meme hosted by James from Book Chic Club, where we vlog a small snippet from a current read. My excerpt this week is from Room by Emma Donoghue. Room is available now from Little, Brown and Company, and comes highly recommended!

Please excuse the poor sound quality. After 6 tries (yes, 6 tries - this is the first time I've done this!), this is the best that I had. I promise that it will be better next week! You've got to start somewhere, right?

For those who view via a reader that strips out the video you can click here to see on YouTube or copy and paste this URL into your browser: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZumWS9Eb6c

I hope you enjoyed this weeks fragment! Until next week, happy reading!

I am not a bully!!

Ok...so maybe I am...but you know you have fun. Awesome selection you make me want to read this even more now and I hate you for that because I don't have the time for it. *grumbles*

P.S. I'll also be happy until next week when I start to bully you to do it again. ;-)
