Bout of Books - Progress 8/20

Bout of Books
This is my first time joining this read-a-thon, so let's hope I'm doing it right!

Here are my Goals if you're curious.

Books to Read
Still reading both my books, and making a good dent in them both! Both are memoirs and while one is about business, the other is about cooking. Both are pretty funny!


Books to Review
I feel really good about getting my review up of this really compelling book, A Vision of Angels by Timothy Jay Smith. Just click on the cover to read my review!

Mini Challenge
Sarah Says Read asks:
What is one bookish thing you want to do before you die? OR what is one thing you want to do before you die that was inspired by a book you read?
My answer:
I'd really like to visit the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. I adore Mr. Carle's artwork and I think an entire museum dedicated to his art and other awesome picture book authors and illustrators would make quite a day for me :)
Happy read-a-thoning, folks!


  1. Looks like your doing well. I had no idea that there was an Eric Carle museum. I can imagine that it is quite wonderful. I will have to look it up.

    1. I guess I am considering that I'm not reading much ... I want to finish these! I heard about the Eric Carle Museum even before it was being built because I emailed me Carle about how my me and my daughter enjoyed his books. Ever since then, I've just want to go! Thaks so much for coming by Belle!

  2. I need to read a memoir for my local library challenge. Would love to know your views on those books.
