Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts

Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is a weekly blogging event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. It allows book bloggers (and non-book bloggers) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise (i.e. share exciting plans for the weekend, rants on things they’ve encountered during the week, etc.).

1. Finished more audiobooks. I might be a bit addicted, but not to the point where I actually want to pay for any. I'm not speaking of pirating, but I'm not into it enough to warrant an audible or subscription.

2. Had to turn another book into netgalley! It turned out to be a .pdf instead of .epub. I can't (properly) read .pdfs on my ereader. (Kobo Glo HD). The weird thing is there is no point for this particular book to be a .pdf! They are good for any sort of crafting book or graphic novel/comic, but if the focus isn't pictures, then it should be in regular book format! Oh, well.

3. Finished my CAL on time! Just barely and I didn't get to do a second one in time for it to count. I'm still working on it though. I am terrible at estimating things, so my son's blanket resembles a beach towel more than a proper blanket.

4. My daughter had a stomach flu or food poisoning on Tuesday. This sucks in the average kid, but it's pretty fricking awful when you factor in a chronic condition on top of it. Not going to get into the nitty gritty, but the gist is: She needs insulin even if her body isn't processing food. If we can't raise her blood sugar at home, she will have to go to the hospital to receive a glucose drip.


  1. I eventually had to give in and get and audible subscription.

    1. I'm not there yet. I just found out I can get 3 month subscription for 4500sb on swagbucks and I'm strongly considering that.
      I love being able to do other things and read at the same time.
