Year of Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli

11

Welcome back! This is my second (or third?) attempt to keep this blog alive. Hopefully, I will do a better job. My main approach is to keep my expectations for myself really low. Like, EXTREMELY low. Life is a busier than it has ever been. We now have a 10-month-old who is constantly keeping us on our toes. Continue reading “Year of Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli”

That number correspond to the book you have to read. The books on my list were selected using a random number generator. Leaving it all to luck! Here is my list.

Books on the Nightstand Summer Bingo

nightstand-illuminating

Books on the Nightstand is one of my favorite book podcasts. If you are not listening to them, you should be! They are currently hosting a summer bingo. Basically, one would get a randomized bingo card, and you have from Memorial Day to Labor Day to complete the card. You can get your own bingo card here.  While I did start later in the summer, I am still going to try to get as many of these completed, and I will probably try to complete it even after Labor Day. These should help me complete the bingo card that I created earlier this year. Continue reading “Books on the Nightstand Summer Bingo”

Dewey’s 24-hour Read-a-thon

The Dewey’s 24-hour Read-a-thon is here!

You can sign up here. I’ve been craving a read-a-thon for a while now, so as you can tell, I’m super psyched for this. The Dewey 24-hour read-a-thon is exactly what it sounds like. It runs 24 hours at starts at the same time for everyone regardless of what timezone you are in (i.e. the US eastern time zone (-5) would run from 8am to 8am while Hawaii (-11) would run from 2am to 2am). You can look-up your start time here. Continue reading “Dewey’s 24-hour Read-a-thon”
