Ree Reads: April Book Reviews

The reading challenge I set for myself in April was a TOTAL FAIL. Sigh. I did read a lot of great books, but my plan to go back and finish books I'd tried to read and quit was....maybe not that great a plan? Two readerly goodies that I'm excited about and that may be relevant... Continue Reading →


Ree Reads: March Book Reviews

Well, I hit an all-time high in March. Thanks to great audio books and the 8 hour drive to and from my sister's new home in Illinois, plus several books I COULD NOT PUT DOWN, I read eleven books this month. YAY! I loved all of the non-fiction I read this month for very different... Continue Reading →

6 Easy Things You Can Do to Read More

In 2017 I tried to read 100 books (only made it to the 60s). This year I set the goal at 100 again, but really I'm just trying to read more than I did last year: 2 books a week is probably an unreasonable goal for me anyway.  I have several reasons for aiming high with... Continue Reading →

Ree Reads: February Book Reviews

Every month I do quick reviews of the books I've read: Because I love to share good things and because the only thing I like better than reading books is TALKING about books. This was a GREAT reading month, partially because of good books, and partially because my poor kids had influenza, so I was... Continue Reading →

What I’m Reading: January Book Reviews

Every month I do quick reviews of the books I've read. I LOVE to read, but have very specific tastes and am a highly sensitive reader, so for years I just read non-fiction and middle-grade novels (with Hunger Games and the like, large portions of YA entered territory too stressful or graphic for me.) I... Continue Reading →

Separated from the Stars (Madeleine L’Engle, speaking through the years words we need now more than ever.)

"If we look at the make up of the word disaster, dis-aster, we see dis, which means separation, and aster, which means stars. So dis-aster is separation from the stars. Such separation is disaster indeed. When we are separated from the stars, the sea, each other, we are in danger of being separated from God.... Continue Reading →

My Best Reads: 2017

It was a GREAT year for reading! I didn't make my goal (100 books in 2017), but I did read  23 more books than I read last year. And I might make it to 72 books read by the actual end of the year, if I finish everything I'm reading right now. Goodreads makes a... Continue Reading →

What I’m Reading: October Book Reviews

I am in the middle of about 6 books right now. Seriously, I need to stick with one at a time. But I'm usually listening to one, and reading a fiction and a non-fiction. At the moment I had so many non-fiction books I want to read I started a bunch and read whatever I... Continue Reading →

The Time I Stole from One of My Favorite Writers (Accidentally.)

I've been reading Anne Bogel's blog for a couple of years now and I listen to What Should I Read Next religiously - first thing on Tuesday morning, every Tuesday. Nearly every book I read is one I learned about from MMD or WSIRN. Many of my friends know about Modern Mrs. Darcy now, but... Continue Reading →
