31 Days of Book Pics: Day 30 - Big Books



I seriously can't believe we're already at day 30! I've had so much fun this month - I hope you have too. (I also think I'll be posting a couple of days apart for the first week or two of November! Whew, it's been hard to get a post up every day sometimes.)

Today's prompt, Big Books, made me sing, "I liiiiiike big books and I cannot lie" embarrassingly frequently this morning as I scrolled through #31bookpics on Instagram!

But in less immature news, I love Simon Schama's History of Britain. I own the (big) book version in 3 volumes, and I also own the DVDs, because I'm nerdy like that.



Are YOU a British history fan?

31 Days of Book Pics: Day 29 - Page Number


Am I the only one who finds the percentage on e-books strangely motivating? I'll be like "Oh! I'm only at 13%?? I'd better read till at least 20% before I put the book down." Or, if I realize I'm within 15% of the end of the book, I have to finish it before I put it down.

Tell me I'm not alone! Who else obsesses over percentages?

31 Days of Book Pics: Day 28 - Books in Motion



I was originally hoping to take a picture of Juliet running off with a book in her hands for this prompt. But, in the last few days I only thought of the picture at moments when she was sleeping or in the bathtub or something, and it just didn't pan out.

So instead, I snapped a pic of a few books-in-motion outside on the front porch again. I'm pretty sure my neighbors think I'm insane as a result of #31bookspics actually. 

These books are in motion on a couple of levels: first, they're hanging out on Juliet's 'motorcycle' (a recent first birthday acquisition), second, I couldn't resist fancy photo effects to add a little implied movement, and third, they're a trilogy about teenage time-travelers, so there is a lot of motion in the books! I really love this series; if I had any extra time I would give them a re-read!


Have you read the Ruby Red Trilogy?
