Favorite Books of 2015

I managed to read 56 books in 2015, and goodreads put together this nice little overview of my reading. That is the most books I have read in a year since I signed up for Goodreads in 2012. I didn’t set out to read that many and a couple series I picked up definitely helped…

84 Charing Cross Road

84, Charing Cross Road

One of my favorite things about the LWA is that there is now a book club. How awesome is that?! The first book we read was 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff, a series of letters exchanged between Helene and Frank Doel (and a few others) of a bookstore at 84, Charing Cross Road.…

Library of the Franckesche Stiftungen

A new literary world at your fingertips

I’m the type of person who can spend hours in a bookstore or library, and if I could I would live there. Just imagine being surrounded by all of those books all of the time…it would be a dream come true. However, that is still just a dream, and as much as I love my…
