Bookish Tag Post: Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag

I don't do a ton of tag posts on this blog, but I have to admit, I totally love these types of tags where you choose books and then open to a random page and answer each question with the first word or character name you see. I found this tag on Paradise Found, the original is from Nathan Hale, and this is how it works: 1. Pick any five books randomly (or not randomly, your choice). 2. The first...
 

The Weekly Update: 5/7/17

Why is it still sporadically reaching lows of 62 in May in a place where we don't even get winter? And who thought 9 in the morning on a Saturday was a good time to feed a whole tree through a wood chipper right outside my window? These are the burning questions I have this week.

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Birds (2)

I did birds as a topic once before, but I've decided to do it again! (Hence the number two in the title.) What can I say, it was just a great topic, and there are so many book covers out there with birds on them that I wanted to share some more of them!

The Weekly Update: 4/30/17

Blog/Bookish Updates: My Amazon wishlists, which is how I keep track of books I’m interested in, will no longer allow me to filter by price drop or sort by price.
