Going on a Popecation

Sitting here thinking about what I should blog about and it hit me – the Popepocalypse, Pope-a-palozza, Pope-cation or whatever you are calling Pope Francis’ historic visit to Philadelphia. For months now we have been hearing about road closures, SEPTA Pope passes and the other day in the paper I even saw an article about a “Pope-up”

Well once again Winston, my exuberant 8 month old Golden Retriever, woke me up far too early this morning. Again it was 4 in the morning and again I had a juicy thriller I was dying to finish! I trudged downstairs and settled on my couch with the dog, a cup of coffee and Remember Me This

Kicking and Screaming

Well...I finally did it! I broke down and bought an eReader. After swearing I could NEVER read an ebook I decided to use the birthday money I was saving for a fancy new stove on the new Kindle Paperwhite; because why not?! Now, you have to know me. I had piles upon piles of "to be read" books

I just discovered the fascinating world of "Book Art" - everything from sculpted pages to altered Joseph Cornell-like shadow boxes. I stumbled upon this genre when I started the Library's Pinterest account. I am now an avid fan of collages made out of books to paintings on page canvases. I see them as the physical embodiment of

A Tasty Gothic Morsel

At 4:32 this morning when I was roused out of a deep slumber by Winston, my rather ripe Golden Retriever, who decided to make his presence known by jumping on the bed to perch on my husband’s head, I begrudgingly got up. I quickly grabbed S.K. Tremayne’s psychological thriller The Ice Twins and devoured the last few

A Different Sort of Detective

If you like delving deep into dark detective novels (alliteration unintended) Still Waters by Nigel McCrery is for you. British, Deputy Chief Inspector Mark Lapslie is pulled off medical leave to work on a most surprising case. A middle aged female sociopath is methodically murdering old, lonely women and Lapslie is hot on her trail or taste!

I was thrilled to open this morning's Philadelphia Inquirer and see the article, "Build Your Own: Little Free Library" on the front page of the Home section.  Little Free Library (LFL) is a global grassroots movement that encourages literacy through the free exchange of books.  Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization based in Madison, Wisconsin who not

As a big fan of the HBO show Girls, I decided to give Lena Dunham’s book Not That Kind of Girl a listen. Dunham writes, produces and stars in Girls, a show about four 20 somethings in New York City navigating the post college life of work, love and finding their place in the world. Does it

Puppy Fever

I'll be the first to admit I never considered myself a dog person. I have been known, on occasion, to roll my eyes when people would start going on about what adorable thing their dog did or stop to pet every dog that walked by. That is until Winston joined our family. Winston is a Golden Retriever,

The Book of Strange New Things

The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber is by far one of the BEST books I have read recently. Granted I am a HUGE Faber fan. Under the Skin is one of my favorite books of all time despite the self-important, very confusing recent film version. He is also the author of The Crimson and
