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?

  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 reviews...you 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!
