3 thoughts on “2015 Reads

  1. You read a lot! I’ve been reading the same book for two months. Tbh right now reading is not my thing….. I’m only on like chapter two (and the chapters aren’t even that long)

  2. So many things to say and an inability to say them in a comment section…I shall go to my own journal and write my thoughts. I love reading people’s thoughts on books, seeing photos of libraries, going through people’s lists of what they read and most of all seeing that they have read at least some of the books I have read. At the same time, I feel some degree of shame that these days (in old age) I no longer read books with depth, pain, I do not read to learn any more. I no longer read to recognize myself or see the world. My current goal is to live long enough to reread all the books in my personal library…if I can stop myself from increasing the size of my ‘to be read’ pile on a daily basis. I love your book blog..it is one of the only ones I follow and read.

  3. You went deep on the historical romance in May! I haven’t publicly committed to reviewing my guilty pleasure, well done.
