Monday Blog – Trans-Relating: Suburban Moms Read “If I Was Your Girl” for Book Club

At our last meeting of the Nightlighters Book Club, I think the we had two firsts - unless I'm forgetting something. The first first was that we read a YA novel (i.e. young adult).

Lazy Sunday – My Favorite Places to Snuggle Up with a Book

I took an insane trip recently where I left Washington, DC at 6 am and flew to LA (a 4+ hour flight) and then took a flight home that same day.

Monday Blog: Book Check – My Reading Goal Progress

First it's Monday. ('Nuff said.) The sun is finally out. But, I'm not sure that makes up for the weather being meh (yes, that's the official term for gloomy and dreary) for the last several weeks. If it were a real winter I'd be curled up by a cozy fire right now with my book. Instead, I guess I'll have to settle for the wood-burning fire channel or at least a pretty candle.
