Greetings all you lovely people! I’ve been eying all your gorgeous monthly wrap-up posts and your plan-to-read posts for a while now. It really is a way to streamline your month just a little bit better.
As you know, my Mommy means the world to me, but she can also irritate the living daylight out of me. Mostly because she is so ridiculously unorganized. How she ever manages at school and with running a library and her own business, really is beyond me. She never, ever knows what is going on in her reading life. She’s got this amazing system at school for the students to control their library books and cards and she always knows exactly what book is with what student and where their library cards are. It’s an easy enough system with each child being assigned a barcode to a little stick that they can decorate as they want.
And then it hit me! That’s what we need! We need our very own library card. And I’ll take possession of it and make sure my Mommy sticks to it. If she doesn’t, I will penalize her the same way she penalizes the kids at school when their library books are late, or their cards are missing. I might not ask for money, but rather hugs and cuddles and extra nibbles. Either way, the punishment will be harsh.
A library card will definitely help her to get her monthly reading streamlined and help her not miss as many deadlines. Such a clever little cat, don’t you think?
Book Club books will of course be the first on the list and I will wait to update her monthly Library Card until Book Club. It’s normally on the first Monday of the new month. Maybe I should have chosen a better month though… My Mommy is the founder and the keeper of the D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything And Read) Book Club and she considers it as part of her duty to read all the books in Book Club. So glad I’m not a crazy human. Once a year, she sorts through the piles of books and make sure they are all on the register and then hands them back to the various members.
The problem with this “stock take” is that she normally discovers that she’s missed a couple of books and then she frantically wants to read them all.
So the Book Club books on her Library Card this month is:
Die Boek van Gelukkige Eindes deur Debbie Loots – ✔ (didn’t care for it much)
She’s never going to manage that. And if she does, I’ll eat dog food for a week. Mark my words. If she were on holiday, maybe. But she’s not. So Ha. – She actually managed very well, I thank you.
She also have the following books on her Kindle that she still needs to read for reviews this month:
A Dark and Secret Place was another DNF. It was very dark and although I don’t mind the darker side of life, sometimes I just can’t stomach it. This book was like that for me. It did get some raging reviews from other reviewers though, so I guess it’s just me!
Reserved for Murder
was a decent read. When we finally managed to get into it…! It took ages to sort through the characters and the previous plot lines. But it did end well. You can find our review here
We didn’t get to Waterborne. But we did read another book from the same publisher and our review should be up somewhere this week or the weekend. We loved it!
9 Books on one little card this month. I can’t see that happening. I guess I can start dreaming about nibbles and an extra helping of salmon by month end. – You can get one extra treat tonight, Elza. No salmon.
Do you use a wrap-up or reading plan for your month? And what’s on your library card for May? Do you think our system will work?
Check in with us again by the fist week in June to see me snack on my delicious treats while giving you an update on my Mommy’s progress.
Lots of Love,
