I had been wanting to re-read To Kill a Mockingbird for awhile, and finally took the initiative to do so this year when I heard its prequel, Go Set A Watchman,was coming out. (even though Go Set A Watchman technically takes place chronologically after To Kill a Mockingbird, I refer to it as a prequel […]
Let’s face it – it’s not always easy to stay focused in the present 100% of the time. The mind inevitably wanders. Especially when the present activity is just plain boring. A lot of people’s thoughts wander to errands they have to do, things they would rather be doing, or the next meal. […]

It’s a wonder that I get any reading done given that I am never fully comfortable with the reading spot I choose. I’ve spent most my time this year reading and finishing books at home, yet I always find myself wondering how I could make it more cozy for reading. I’ve definitely felt my reading […]
For years, I would trudge through books even if I didn’t like the storyline or writing. My philosophy was that I had to finish whatever I started. Regardless of whether it was a book or any other work item, it bothered me whenever something was open-ended and not complete. I would try to finish a […]
Before the novel… Have you ever heard the phrase, “never judge a book by its cover”? Yea. I ALWAYS judge a book by a cover. If it doesn’t look cool, I probably won’t pick it up. I found this book at HEB on my way to the register and it definitely caught my eye. I […]
