Happy December!

Posted by on Dec 1, 2014

Hello! I hope you all had as wonderful of a Thanksgiving as I did. I ate fried turkey (this is the only way to eat turkey), more pie than was good for me, and my absolute favorite Thanksgiving concoction: mashed potatoes with cranberry sauce mixed in. Hey, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! My […]

10 books I’ve carried with me

Posted by on Sep 15, 2014

This post originally came from a Facebook meme that’s been going around: name 10 books that have you’ve carried with you and don’t take too long to think about it. Normally I ignore stuff like this (“If you don’t forward this post, you’re a terrorist!” “If you don’t copy  and paste this post, I’m going […]

I’m baaaaaack!

Posted by on Aug 4, 2014

Well, it’s been a few months, so welcome back to the blog! I hope to be bringing new content on a more regular basis. At least more regular than every three months or so! I’ve taken the summer off because I’m pregnant again (yay!) but have been feeling really sick (boo!) and tired (double boo!). […]

Happy March!

Posted by on Mar 3, 2014

For the two of you out there who follow my blog, you may have noticed I haven’t posted in a while. My son and I both had a pretty bad cold, then we had family visiting, and the day after they left, we left on a trip of our own for a few days. So […]

Happy 2014!

Posted by on Jan 1, 2014

Happy New Year! I do love the New Year’s traditions of starting fresh, trying to rid yourself of bad habits and instill good ones. But forget exercise, eating healthy, being tidier, and all of that. Let’s talk about our reading resolutions! One thing that I’d like to focus on in 2014 is reading less crap, […]

It’s almost Christmas!

Merry Christmas from all of us here (that would be me) at Lector’s Books! If the kids or in-laws are driving you crazy and you’ve run out of all your favorite Christmas books/movies, I’d recommend diving into The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe – both the book and latest movie adapation are fantastic, and […]

Book Overboard – Books You Just Couldn’t Finish

Posted by on Oct 21, 2013

I recently made it only a few pages into three different mysteries and then stopped because I just couldn’t get into them. (For the record, they were Dance of the Winnebagos – too R rated for my tastes, The Final Arrangement  – too bland for my tastes, and A Dead Red Oleander – the narrator/main […]

Back from Brazil!

Posted by on Sep 30, 2013

I’m back from Brazil! It was a very good trip, but unforunately my plans to read several books were thwarted by a) the Martian Death Flu contracted shortly before leaving, so I spent the plane rides down staring at the tray table in front of me and tending to my baby and b) travelling with […]

To Mark Up or Not To Mark Up

Posted by on Aug 26, 2013

A question born out of my own simple curiousity. Do you leave your physical mark on your paper books? Do you dog-ear, highlight, make notes, inscribe your name, or some combination of the above? I have to admit that I don’t do any of those things. I try to keep my books in as pristine […]

Favorite Reading Setup?

Posted by on Jul 24, 2013

When I read I become completely immersed in the story. If I’m reading an extremely good book, I forget to eat, lose track of time, don’t sleep, and any distractions (once they finally penetrate what my husband has dubbed my “book coma”) are met with high annoyance. In theory I like a nice cup of […]
