About This Blog

Don't get me wrong. It's not that I'm not on board with the whole ebook thing. I enjoy books in all their formats. But there is nothing quite like a bookstore with its neatly arranged shelves of books and artfully created displays of new arrivals, best sellers, and suggested reading. I especially enjoy discovering small, independent bookstores and have made it my mission to visit and report back on as many of these gems as I can. That is my focus, but there is really nothing that is off limits as long as it is about books or reading. Hope you enjoy my blog and come back often.

New Way To Read

You know I love books, right? So don't think me a traitor when I say that I have discovered audio books. Now, before all you print book purists get your knickers in a knot, let me assure you that I do still love print books. They are by far my preferred way to consume the written word. But a couple of months ago, I discovered how audio books can be a viable way to augment my “reading.” Let me give you a little back story on how this came about.

A couple of months ago while up at the cottage, I had occasion to take a drive to Cadillac, about an hour away. Knowing that The Book Thief is my favorite book, a friend had just informed me that the author, Markus Zusak, had a new book out, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy. I never need much of an excuse to take a drive to Cadillac anyway, so off I went to visit Horizon Books.
