Reading Drought

For an English major in the middle of a semester, I have been doing surprisingly little reading lately. It’s partially due to the classes that I am taking this semester. I usually get introduced to new books and authors when I take classes. But this semester, I am taking Literature of the Bible and most of the reading is the same sort of stuff that I learned in Sunday School when I was a little girl. And then instead of taking a second literature class, I am taking Sign Language so I am not getting introduced to any new books there (although I can now tell you my name and the fact that I have brown, wavy hair without speaking aloud).

It’s also because I am spending so much time and energy working on the store and Christmas gifts. And it is also because I just haven’t gotten my hands on anything new and exciting to read. I have been re-reading some old favorites so I don’t go into complete book withdrawal but I am definitely getting to the point where I need to find something new and good to read soon.  I am very open to suggestions if anyone has a book they would like to recommend.

In the meanwhile, I found these incredible bookish places that I would love to go visit. I am pretty sure that after some time spent at anyone of these places, my book drought would be at an end.

And if that isn’t cool enough, Book Riot has a Pinterest board devoted to Bookish Escapes, including: book stores, libraries, bookish little nooks,



About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
