Newbies Sepember 2017

Remember that I told you about my book buying yo-yo effect? Remember that I only got four books in August? Well, here’s the other side of the story … I got kind of totally crazy. I went thrifting, ordered way too many books online, got some at work, and decided to double the amount of horse non-fiction I own.

Wrap-Up September 2017

The first week of September, I was off of work. Therefore, I expected to get a lot more reading done than I actually did in the end. Spending a lot of time at the stables really doesn’t help with reading, but it was nice to be able to ride every day for almost two weeks. […]

Newbies August 2017

Just with the Wrap-Ups, my last Newbies post was way back in September 2015. In short, I’m still addicted to buying books, frantically amassing more and more and then some more. This year, however, I’m alternating between months in which I buy next to no books and months in which I buy all the books. I’m kind of challenging myself to go as long without buying books as I can, but when I reach that point I can no longer stand not getting books, it escalates very quickly. Who would have thought the yo-yo effect also affects book buying behaviour?! August was one of the former, which is why I only have four books to show you, each a different format …

Wrap-Up August 2017

Um, apparently, I haven’t posted a Wrap-Up post since October 2015. That was ages ago. I can’t believe how much has happened since then. Anyway, the gist: two years later, I’m still awful at blogging regularly. When only considering the amont of pages read, September was an awful reading month. However, this is kind of misleading …

Wrap-Up October 2015

October is one of my favourite months of the year. It’s usually the epitome of what autumn, my favourite season, is all about: sunny days, rainy days, crisp air, creeping fog, colourful leaves, the smell of earth, pumpkin soup, and lots and lots of comfy reading time …

Newbies September 2015

I already mentioned in my Wrap-Up that September wasn’t a good month for me. I got rather depressed, which makes me even more prone to buying books than I usually am. Getting books in the mail just makes me so very happy – I’m pretty sure most of you can relate …

Wrap-Up September 2015

September, September. So, what were I actually doing in September? I can’t even remember! Ugh, rhyme not intended. But it’s true, September is kind of a blurr. I worked. I handed in my internship report. I had some stuff for the bookfair team to do. I read books. I watched series. Quite possibly the most depressing month of the year, especially since everyone was going on holidays and I was stuck at home …
