Finding Time to Read – Part Two

A while a go I wrote a post about reading too many books at the same time.   This read-one-book-at-a-time project was to finish the books sooner, as well as allowing myself to become fully engrossed in one book.  It seems to make more sense but it’s not working for me.

Today I bought a new book for the kindle and even though I was already reading one I couldn’t not start my new one.  I’m also reading one physical book in bed and a different one for downstairs – the very thing I didn’t want to do.  Working in a library doesn’t help because I’ll see something interesting on the shelves, and that will be my lunchtime reading instead of the book I brought in to read.  Thank goodness I’m on annual leave right now or I’d also be reading the Patrick Ness book I recently purchased for the Junior Fiction collection!

Project result: Epic failure.

I think these are so cute. These books were important to the lady who received these cupcakes.  I love how books can shape a persons life, and I love how varied these books are. I would keep these forever!

If you were presented cupcakes adorned with books that shaped your life, what books would they be?

Library Shenanigans

Victoria’s Kitchen, a London bakery, made these bookish treats for a customer’s 60th birthday. Each of the books shaped her life in some way. Thanks, Juliet Cook, Kathleen Kirk, and Hooked on Books!
