31 Days of Book Pics: Day Nineteen - Reading Accessories


My favorite reading accessory is a snack! I've had to really limit my eating options since Juliet was born, since she has soy and dairy sensitivities. Here are a random assortment of the snacks I've been loving lately: Late July chips (I love every variety), cinnamon cookies, apples, and some of my homemade apple-pear butter on a slice of toast. 

My other favorite snack is Fritos. I couldn't take a picture of them, since I'm all out, but I have been obsessed with them in the last few months!



What's YOUR favorite reading snack?

31 Days of Book Pics: Day Eighteen - Books + Drinks


I'm pretty excited about both of these recent acquisitions. I'm not a wine drinker, but I love fancy sodas that come in wine-type bottles. And, an audiobook about the making of The Princess Bride?* With guest parts by all the major cast members? What's not to love?!

The girls are sick (cue my dejected "Again!"), and having to do extra cleaning and deal with whiny children, all while short on sleep, makes me not-exactly-the-world's-most-patient-mom.

So I'm planning a little soda-and-audiobook mini-break at some point this weekend. Hooray!



Are YOU a Princess Bride fan?

*I was sent a copy of this audiobook for review. I'm not sure if it's good or not, I'll keep you posted once I start it.

31 Days of Book Pics: Day Seventeen - Favorite Books



I'm up at my parent's house for the day, and I totally forgot to take a picture of some of my favorite books at home before we left. So I raided my mom's collection to see what I could come up with. The photo is thus a sorta random selection of books that were among my favorites as a kid. It's funny that I just now realized that they all have strong female protagonists... perhaps that's why they were my favorites!

"Favorite" books is such a tricky expression anyway. I don't know about you, but it makes me CRAZY when people ask me what my favorite book is, because it's so very hard to narrow down. And I'm always discovering new authors to love - Deborah Crombie is definitely one of my favorites now, and three years ago I hadn't even read any of her books.

But I'm super curious to hear about YOUR favorites. Do you stick with tried and true authors? Or are you always branching out too? Sound off in the comments, or link-up your own posts below.

And don't forget - if you link up a post, you're automatically entered to win a $15 Amazon or Barnes and Noble giftcard at the end of the month.
