Best Books of 2019…

Hello! I have been planning on doing this post for weeks and I am so happy to finally be sharing it today. For some reason, figuring out which books would make this list was much harder than I initially anticipated. I think this is partly because I read so many amazing books last year that it was just hard to narrow it down, which is NOT a bad problem to have.

After overthinking it for weeks, I decided I was going to look back at all the books I read and then decide … Read more...

Checking In:

Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful holiday and that you have some time to kick back and relax now. We hosted Christmas Eve and Christmas so there wasn’t a lot of reading time around here but I am hoping to have a low key day today. Lucas is back at work and the kids are excited about their new gifts and are having one of their buddies over, so I am hoping the stars align for some lazy daytime reading on the couch.

Happy November!

Hello! While we had a fairly mild October, we woke up to whipping winds today that had a chill that reminded us all that winter is right around the corner! November can be an extension of beautiful fall weather or go right into winter mode around here right away, you just never know! I had my snow tires put on this past week and I am hoping because I have them, we won’t need them for a bit…kind of like having an umbrella!

I am a big Kindle reader but I tend to read most of them through the Libby app or Kindle deals. When I buy a full-priced book, I would much rather buy a hard copy that I can then have in my physical library to read again or share with friends. You can read my post tips to reading on a Kindle HERE and my post about reading on a budget HERE.

One of my favorite things is scrolling through the kindle deals over a big mug of coffee. Through my experience, I have found the best … Read more...

So You Got a Kindle…

Congratulations and welcome to the club!! As a lifelong book lover, it took me a while to move over to reading ebooks, but now I am hooked! I remember when e-readers and ebooks first came on the scene in a larger way and there was this idea that hard copy books would become obsolete.

ebooks vs. hard copy books

Now that they have been a part of mainstream reading for some time now, I think everyone was able to see that they are just another option for reading and it doesn’t have to be one or the other! … Read more...

Holidays & Routines

Who else keeps forgetting what day is it? Whenever we have a holiday in the middle of the week it always throws me off! It totally feels like a Sunday and on Sundays, I like to find Kindle deals while I drink my morning coffee. There is something so satisfying about finding books I have previously loved for less than a cup of coffee.

Luckily, there are still some great Kindle deals today! I have been reading The Idea of You and was so excited to see it is on sale right now because it is the … Read more...

Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader DEAL!

Screen Shot 2019-05-05 at 9.41.03 AM.pngIf you have been waiting to purchase a Kindle Paperwhite, today is the day! I bought mine when it was a special deal ($40 off!) and I haven’t seen it on sale in a while. I have the smaller storage size and it works great for my needs ( you just need wifi to download a book so you don’t need to store them all on there). I have the Paperwhite that doesn’t have special offers (ads) on the screen saver but I don’t think it is a huge deal either way!

Hello from sunny Florida! we are away this week visiting family on the gulf coast. After a long Vermont winter and a busy work season for Lucas, it feels great to have a week together as a family. We have been spending a lot of time finding shark teeth at the beach, eating delicious food and swimming in the pool.
