Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



Gosh I have been reading a lot lately! I love it but I have been sorely lacking in my creativity, instead I have been working on getting my crafting supplies somewhat organized so it isn't always such a disaster. I have also cut myself off on getting anymore supplies until I use at least the most recent ones I have gotten.

We did have a couple of snow days at the end of last week, got blasted with a good blizzard on Thursday and then Friday was a big clean up day. I don't know if we will get another one today, we are expecting another storm but it could be a lot of snow or more rain, we will have to see (but I could totally use another day off).  This also explains why I haven't been able to get my pen pal letters out (I have a large stack of them to mail but need to get to the post office) and why I also missed last week's Pen to Paper post, I need to get better about scheduling posts again.

Anyway,  have you ever found yourself reading very similar books close together without meaning to? Lately I have found that several of the books I have read are along the line of star-crossed lovers. I don't know why that seems to happen to me a lot but it does (last year I ended up reading a lot of fairy tale re-tellings without meaning to and before that it was a lot of Robin Hood inspired books).


  1. I read similar books a lot. Sometimes I think my subconscious subconscious manages to do that without me noticing. Maybe it's in the mood for something.

    1. I guess it is completely subconscious, it is just really odd that it keeps happening, especially when they are sometimes completely different genres of books and publishing years. I know I have purposely been seeking out a lot of Beauty and the Beast books though in anticipation for the movie.
