How I pick books to read

ebook with cat coffee and donuts

Here's the thing. We all have tropes, characters, etc., we prefer to read about and things we don't. I'm not sure how others go about picking books to read based on their tastes, but this is what I do.

Book quotes #4: March 2021

Passion led us here

I'm a little late on today's post. My apologies. Yesterday was Sunday and I decided to take it easy. I had a sleep-in, and then I read most of the day and had a very chill out day. Also, I'm not sure what was going on when I scheduled my blog posts but well, this month you get two book quote posts. I hope you enjoy the ones I've picked out today.

What Helen Read #57: February 2021

So, a couple of days ago we had our first "big" gathering at our home. We invited some neighbours over to dinner and there were a total of eight of us. It's the biggest we've had since we had Thanksgiving last November with six of us. We are still being cautious but venturing out and startint to do more. I've gotten so used to staying home all the time, I have to admit going out seems strange. But, brave souls that we are, we went to our first big public event yesterday that was still socially distanced. It was for a book launch and talk, and they had chairs set up in groups of one, twos, and threes, for different groups of people to either sit individually or together. Steve and I sat together in a socially distanced group of two. I even got to hug a friend which was totally out there since it's been a year that I've hugged anyone other than Steve.

How are things going in your area? Are you able to go out yet? Or have gatherings? However things are going, I hope you are doing well.

Here's what Helen read for the last month.

Book quotes #3: March 2021

Passion led us here

I'm enjoying the heck out of these book quotes. So many to choose from too since they pop up frequently in all the books I read. Funny story, I shared a particularly hilarious passage with my best friend who is a very logical guy and he didn't find it funny at all. I was all gleeful and laughing at it but he said he thought it was kinda crass (it was a boob joke) and he didn't get it. He's so blah. Anyway, I was just thinking maybe context is important too. I hope you enjoy the ones I've picked out today.

What Deanna Read #61: February 2021

I want to stop saying how fast each month goes but man, this month went fast. Maybe it's because there are fewer days in the February. For some weird reason this month I kept getting my days wrong. I put a calendar invite for Wednesday 24 Feb into 24 March so I totally didn't get the reminder. Then I thought I made a mistake with a lunch reservation and there was a conflict because I was looking at the wrong date. My brain is now firing on all cylinders.

It's a shorter month for February to fewer books read. I also took it a little slower this month and chilled out a bit more on the reading front.

That's it from me. I hope everyone is well. My thoughts are with you all. Stay safe.

Here's what I read for the month.
