Teaser Tuesday-Bloody Jack

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
  • Grab your current read.

  • Let the book fall open to a random page.

  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page

  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!


Hamlet was a good one. I thought the deceptions in that one were pretty well thought up. Shakespeare and I could have come up with a couple of corkers together, I'll wager.

Musing Monday-Borrowed Books

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about borrowed books.

Where do you keep any books borrowed from friends or the library? Do they live with your own collection, or do you keep them separate? Do you monitor them in anyway? The only books I tend to borrow are ones from the library but occasionally my mom or a friend will send something my way and until I read them they all stay on my nightstand.

Books from friends or family sometimes make it into my personal collection since I only see my family a couple of times a year but I'm pretty good at keeping up with what is mine and what isn't.

Musing Monday-Bookshelves

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about tidy bookshelves.

Are your bookshelves strictly books only? Or have knick-knacks invaded? Do your shelves also shelve DVDs? Photos? Why not snap a photo – I’m sure we all like to spy on other’s shelves!

My knick-knacks haven’t invaded my bookshelves yet but that’s just because I’m waiting for my other bookcases to be built first. I plan on putting my Disney snowglobes near my Disney-related books. I do need to get another case just for DVDs though so I can get them out of my dresser though!

First Bookshelf of the Library

I did promise you guys some pictures of my library once it was together and though it will probably be a while before it's complete here is the biggest portion!
The two walls on either side of it will get the floor to ceiling bookshelf treatment too (this is the same bookcase in all pictures). I'm going to have to get a step-stool soon since I can't reach the top shelf lol. More pictures soon!
