BCof1 Monthly Book Club – September Pt. 2

I had a weird month of reading.  It was dominated by long audiobooks that I started, had to return before I finished, and then ended up at the end of a long waitlist before getting again.  I love Overdrive, but it does present a problem for continuity.  This has caused 2 problems with reading EmmaRead more

Getting to Know Phi Alpha Pi: Meet Charlie

I always felt Mr. Bingley was never given the attention he deserved. Only Mr. Darcy’s opposite could have been the other male hero of the book. Just as Lizbeth and Jane are complimentary opposites, so are Wil and Charlie.  Here are five things you won’t know about Charlie from reading Phi Alpha Pi Like withRead more

Bookstores I Love: Brookline Booksmith

It was like a year and a half ago the last (and only) time I shared a bookstore I love.  It should be happening more often, honestly.  Going around to different places on my “tour” (which is more just me traveling and you seeing pictures) has allowed me the chance to visit libraries and bookstoresRead more

The Modern Persuasion Book Trailer

One of the things I love, as a reader, is a book trailer.  It sets the tone for the book and provides a preview of what is going to happen.  It was intimidating to think about and things were too crazy in April and May to consider one.  As I work on Phi Alpha Pi,Read more
