I've been pondering this #bookjournal format for awhile and I'm ready to give it a try. The sections are To Remember, To Do, and Geeking Out! I read a lot of #nonfiction and have tried taking notes like I learned in school as well as marking passages-- neither methods are working for me. Hopefully this will!
If you decide to try this format, let me know how it goes! Do you have a note taking format that works well for you?
1. Not sure of it's made me cry the most, but the most recent is Little Women.
2. Fiction-- and that includes fantasy and paranormal. I like stories a lot and, after a long day, it's nice to kick back and unwind. I read a lot of non-fiction, bit it's not relaxing in the same way.
3. Well...I kind of mentioned 3 genres...so, here's 3 titles I really enjoyed...Little Women, The Powder Mage Trilogy, and The Rook
📚my books are organized by category
📚In my library! This picture isn't of all the shelves, but you get the idea (and it's messy because I'm in the middle of adding another bookcase and organizing)
📚 Physical copies with the occasional digital cookbook
that's on sale and I want to test. I actually buy about 98% of my books secondhand, so I don't have a preference between hard or soft cover
Listening to an audiobook while threading the heddles. I've never used a loom like this before, but so far so good! This book is a great guide!

I both really like this #diy book and find it slightly aggravating. The how-to in the beginning is super helpful and I do often turn to this book for #visiblemending and #upcycling instructions. However, the majority of the book is a photo gallery of work the author has done. While very inspiring, I would have enjoyed more stitch how-to's...or a slightly lower price tag 😅
As you can tell by the picture, my #cookbook has been lovingly used for years. I've many of the recipes and they have all turned out great and delicious--without a sugar crash afterwards 😅 also, although the treats are yummy, they I don't find them addictive like sugar packed treats, so it's easy to stop when I want to. The #cookies in the photo are the classic chocolate chip. I find they taste even better the next day (made with coconut sugar)
Rereading books from childhood is fraught with peril~it‘s often not as good as I remember! Redwall has been BETTER than I remember, and I already had a fondness for it 🥰 so glad I‘m rereading it after all these years. It‘s been fun to read passages out loud to my young son.
Harry Potter was totally a world I used to escape to, along with many other books
Today's book haul from our library's used book sale!
Tent? ✅ Sleeping bag? ✅ Camping library? Hecka yes!!!
Just sold my second book on PangoBooks! I'm so excited!!! I've been selling books on eBay for a few years and decided to test this app out. So far so good! I declutter my library every year, so I'm excited to have a further reach to find good homes for books I'm no longer getting value out of 😎
High school is a great place to kill one's love for good literature, and I graduated thinking I will never read anything by Dickens ever again.
Well, it's been 16 years since high school, plenty of time to prove many of my other take aways wrong. Turns out Dickens was no exception. This book is a beast and I had a hard time putting it down! The narrative was so captivating! The wit and satire are both hilarious and illuminating. Highly recommend
