Mixed Shelf #13

I'm ahead of my Goodreads challenge again! Last month was a great reading month, I finished lots of books. So I thought I'd do a books-about-books blog post today. Also inspired by the (audio)book I'm currently reading.

 Wanting: The Moment of Everything by Shelly King
This is a book I found through a bookstore newsletter. It came with a giveaway and I'm keeping my fingers crossed because it sounds like a truly lovely story. It involves a bookstore, a woman finding a book with special side notes that lead her on a search that teaches her about herself in the process. And there are cats, too. What's not to love?!

Reading: The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
It was hard to miss the hype around this book. Especially after the magnificent movie. Anyway, I tried reading this book years ago, but somehow stopped. I can't remember if I didn't like it or if I just didn't like it enough not let myself forget about it. Anyway, I'm now reading the audiobook and it is very good indeed, so I'm glad I gave it another shot.

Waiting: Book Lust by Nancy Pearl
This is supposedly a great help for when you're not sure as to what book to read next. I usually don't have that problem, but I've heard some great things about this book. And as a book lover it seemed like a bit of a must have. Also, the cover just stood out and I had to pick it up. If not for myself someday, then it will make someone a great gift.

Have you read a good book about books? Or are you reading anything fun at the moment?


  1. i have the nancy pearl book and really like it - it has lots of good suggestions! i haven't read book thief... maybe i should? and i like the look of the moment of everything!

  2. Glad to hear it!
    And maybe you should. I'm very near the end and really liked it so far! I do definitely recommend the audio book though. But of course loads of people still liked actually reading it too...

  3. I love your books always coordinate everything so well, it really appeals to the ex-librarian in me. The Moment of Everything looks great. This month, I'm reading a lot of forestry manuals and classic novels. I even started an online book club on my blog, you should check it out!


Thank you for your comments, they really make my day!
