In the Bookcase


Sharing Our Bookshelves {May 2012}

"People are much more willing to lend you books than bookcases."

Ah! Very true words from Mark Twain, and I hope my bookworm friends are willing to lend at least one book or perhaps a shelf of books.

The link-up below is for any blog posts that have book reviews, good quotes, book lists, or anything related to reading, writing, authors, or books in general. You can come back throughout the entire month of May to add more posts to the lists.

I have 2 more noteworthy things to mention!

Firstly, if you're visiting my blog today, you may notice the brand new design. Take a look around; let me know what you think.

Summer reading challenge: Louisa May AlcottSecondly, remember a month ago when I hinted at a Louisa May Alcott reading challenge? I'm so excited about this! I hope that some of my bookish friends will be joining me this Summer in enjoying some of the lovely Miss Alcott's writings. Don't worry---to join the challenge, the minimum is 1 book! But you're welcome to read as many as you like. Watch out for the details of this reading challenge coming within the next few days.

Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts on any of these things I mentioned. Make sure to link up some of your book-related posts before you go!

  1. "Take a look around; let me know what you think."

    I like it. The header looks a bit vintage which is my favorite type of style.

  2. Oh, Tarissa, your new design is loverly! :) Adore it! Great job!

  3. Lovely new look.

    A L. Alcott reading challenge? Sounds like a lot of fun! Count me in! :)

  4. Have fun with the Alcott reading challenge. Enjoy the new look of your blog!

  5. Looking forward to the reading challenge!
    Without thinking I posted my name instead of my article's name on the link... oops! The article is on the meaning of the word "timshel" in Steinbeck's
    East of Eden :)

  6. I love the new look! And I just got my copy (well, it is my sister's copy) of Little Women off the shelf and am planning on starting it today. I can't believe I've never read it before, especially since I love the move so much! (The newer one, that is.) I'm grabbing your challenge button.
