Wow — it’s been almost two months since Sitting in the Stacks has been updated. Why is that? Well, there are lots of reasons, but the main one is that I moved across the country. For those of you familiar with the process, moving takes forever even if it’s just down the block! I’m back now and there are a few interesting posts coming your way soon. Read more
One month later and Sitting in the Stacks reappears! My one week off turned into a month, because I became swamped with a new job, planning a move, and other projects.
I recently came back from South Carolina where I visited a super cute bookstore. Stay tuned for a Bookstores of the World post! Oh – and there should be a book review of Murder in the Marais soon, too.
What has everyone else in the book blog world been up to? What are you all reading? Read more
Only one more week of the spring semester!! Even though I only get a week off between spring semester and summer term, there is something so freeing about being done with the official academic year. Read more

Because I have two awesome friends, it’s been a birthday weekend of sorts.
For my birthday weekend we went to a grilled cheese and beer tasting, a speakeasy, a museum exhibit about the spiritualist movement, and a Scooby Doo themed escape room.
This means there wasn’t too much reading this weekend. Read more
First, a question. Have people been having difficulty commenting? One fellow book blogger told me that her comment disappeared after she hit submit. There isn’t comment moderation on Sitting in the Stacks, you just need an email address. It’s my hope that people engage with the content on the blog, so if commenting has been an issue I would like to know so I can try to fix it. Read more
There wasn’t much reading done this past week, because I am in the process of writing final papers. After two years of not finishing the spring term until June, I can’t believe the semester will be over in 5 weeks!
Even though this week was dedicated to working, I did finish one book on the plane out to Colorado AND get a new book to add to the shelf.

I wish I could say that being bogged-down by books at the moment was the good kind. There is something beautiful about the freedom to read for fun and have piles to the ceiling of books you want to read.
But that is not my current fate.
I’m mainly bogged-down by books for research. Though I do have new “for-fun” books to show off this week! Read more
This week has been a lovely time for reading. Over spring break I finished The Group, which will be reviewed on Monday, and I began MWF Searching for a BFF by Rachel Bertsche. Bertsche’s book is also a part of the 20 In Your 20s reading challenge.
Somewhere along the way I must have misread the description of MWF Searching for a BFF or the book’s summary was just not very clear. I had been under the impression that Bertsche’s book was a novel. Read more
This past week I decided to make some progress on the 20 In Your 20s reading challenge. If I had begun the challenge when I was 20 it would have been far more manageable. Two books a year over 10 years is totally doable. Averaging four books over the next four years to complete the list of 20…a little more difficult.
