December 28, 2018: Reading ‘One Day in December’

December28_2018


I began my new read last night, ‘One Day in December’ by Josie Silver. It’s a love story, following the lives of three people throughout a 10 year period. I’m amazed that I chose another story that centers on relationships! I did want to focus on Christmas stories around the holiday season, and the book has Christmas as a focal point. Granted, I began reading it after Christmas, but it has the word ‘December’ in the title, and it’s still December. So that counts!

November 6, 2018: The fun with Book Crates…and remember to VOTE!!

I just received notice that my Book of the Month for November is being shipped out to me. Although my attention is on NaNoWriMo this month, I’m very much looking forward to receiving my book. It’s a novel by Liane Moriarty. I’m new to reading Moriarty’s work, so I’m going to enjoy reading some new material. I’m hoping it won’t be boring.

I’m also receiving my first OwlCrate shipment this month! I’m very much interested in picking up some new reads, and I also wanted to find a crate that promotes wonderful book related items. So far, aside from Book of the Month, OwlCrate seems like a fulfilling book box (with other fun items).

It’s Election Day, 2018. It’s the Mid-Term elections, which means that we can vote in officials who will actually care about our issues in American society. Without being influenced by the current President’s bullying tactics. If you’re living in America, don’t forget to vote today! The voting areas in New Jersey are open until 8pm tonight. Make your voice heard!
