Month in Review - March

This might be my last month of big numbers. I start my MA English and Creative Writing in April (yesterday by the time this posts) and probably won't have a lot of time for pleasure reading. I haven't do anything toward the Color Reading Challenge and I'm hoping to start on the Green Mile this month. We read two books for Book Club and had an author reading/signing.

I read 9 books this month and started 1:

  • I finished The Apothecary's Daughter by Juile Klassen
  • Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas
  • Engaged in Sin by Sharon Page
  • A Man to Trust by Carrie Turansky
  • Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick
  • The Statistical probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
  • Torn by Amanda Hocking
  • The Border Bride by Blyth Gifford
  • Spirit Bound by Christine Feehan
  • I started Jane Austen Made Me Do It


I Listened to 2 audio books and started 1:

  • I finished Texas! Chase by Sandra Brown (debating if I want to read/listen to the other books in the series)
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • I started Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!

THE POWER OF THE WRITTEN WORD VERSUS THE POWER OF THE UNSPOKEN WORD
The main objective for anyone involved in the arts is to get their message across, and everything revolves around the efficacy. Artists want to communicate with people, share ideas, passions and experiences. For many of us, the inspiration is life.

I have spent the last 20 years focusing on sculpture and writing, both mediums through which I hope to inspire and share my ideas about us and our role on this planet. I spent 10 years working on my technique in both areas, and a few years ago, I felt ready to put my work out there. I began with sculpture and have been very lucky.
