Monday, April 11, 2011


I've been reading a lot lately, a happy side-effect of my not-so-great Crohn's flare. Some reads were better than others, but I feel accomplished every time I finish a book.

As a result, my GoodReads account has been updated a bit, and I'm almost up to 500 books read. I know I've read more than 500 books in my lifetime, but I have trouble remembering books I've read in the past few years. Strangely enough, I remember many of the books I read as a child - including when I stopped reading the Animorphs series regularly, and which ones I skipped altogether.

One feature of GoodReads that I really like is the ability to select not only what you're reading now and what you've read before, but what you'd like to read in the future (and seriously, there are enough books on that particular list of mine to last through many decades of gift-giving). It's the most frequently updated on my list, because I'm always looking for intriguing new reads.

Anyone got any more recommendations for my long, long to-read list?

Polyvore is such fun.

touch of bohemian.

Lately, I've noticed a fondness for clothing that is long, loose, flowy, comfy, detailed. I'm loath to try and "define" my style - my favorite types of dresses are crisp shirtdresses and slouchy t-shirt dresses. I'm starting to wonder now, though, if I'm not just a touch boho. Or maybe I just want to be?
