What I Read In January


Books

I had one of the most beautiful beginnings to this year when I spent some time in a cabin in the mountains. And yes, that cabin came with a mini library as well and a cozy reading room to read, overlooking snow-capped peaks, and unlimited cups of warm tea to heat your frozen toes. So, […]

What I Read In December


Books

The monthly prompts of December from the lovely Susannah Conway kept me busy and I didn’t get around to my usual monthly routine blogging tasks. In December, I slowed down the reading a bit. I was away traveling for the first few days of the month with a group, and then the last few days […]

What I Read In November


Books

I am a little behind my usual monthly post about the books I read. That has mostly to do with all the work from the ‘December Reflections’ project, and a fair bit of laziness from me over the last month of the year. This month, though, as indeed this year, I am promising myself that […]

The Best Book Of 2017


Books, Reflections on 2017

I am terrified of this word ‘best’. There is a certain finality to that word. I loathe using the word ‘best’ friend. It implies that the other friends are in some way flawed – lesser. I prefer to use the word ‘close’ instead. And if I really need to distinguish that special friend, I just […]

What I Read In October


Books

Just so swift is this year’s end. How quickly Time seems to be casting its hours into days! Surely it can’t be 365 days soon! The Universe must have made a mistake, I think. Yet, as I write this, I am filled with joy for this year. What a beautiful year I have had. Filled […]

What I Read In September


Books

What a beautiful month September was! But then, September has always been kind to me. I love this month for the gentle changes it brings – it’s not quite the end of the year, but it sends a reminder of the months gone by, the fallen leaves of the detritus of the past. It’s a […]

What I Read In August


Books

How did September almost come to an end? I shake my head in disbelief. This can’t be happening. Has the world somehow shrunk Time? It seems that the days are running shorter and I am dreading the end of each day, knowing that somehow, inexorably Time is weaving its spider’s web over my life, entangling […]

What I Read In July


Books

I was caught in a bit of a book slump last month. There were a combination of factors for this slump. One was that nothing I read seemed to catch my attention long enough. I was hungry for books that were fast enough to read and not too taxing on my mind. Also, my close […]

What I Read In June


Books

I went off the reading cliff in June. It’s not that I didn’t have time. I so hate it when people give me that excuse. I just didn’t seem to be able to finish any book that I started. I am currently reading 11 books at the same time! Yes! You read that right. 11. […]

What I Read In May


Books

Nothing exemplifies the transitoriness of life more to me than the month of May. I have watched bewildered as a friendship crumbled because someone struggled to stand up and be counted. I have seen in a month that nothing we imagine is ever as it is. That we can go back on words. That we […]
