Reading and Reviewing
Well... I just recently updated, so not much has changed. The only book I read this month was a graphic novel, American Widow. I also did not post any reviews this month. 

I have started so many books, but none have been holding my interest. Some are partly the book's fault, and some are definitely not.

I've decided I need to post more book related (or other) posts and not so many reviews since I can't keep up. I have to think about how I want this to work. I also don't want to feel pressured to review every book I read. I don't really want to post too much personal information, but I do need a way to expand the blog a little.

There are a couple websites I've been enjoying that are literary - well one, yes, the other not literary so much as humanistic, and both take place in my favorite city that I wanted to share. They both have their own website but I follow both through Facebook. The first one is called Humans of New York (or HONY) or can be followed on FB. This photographer posts frequently (every day, sometimes more than once a day) of various people he runs across. The pictures are charming, sweet, fun, and sometimes have great stories behind them. Love this site.

The other site is called the Underground New York Public Library. Every day he posts a picture of someone reading a book on the subway or the subway platform and captions the picture with the name of the book. Each Friday he posts a picture of someone reading an e-book, though we don't get the names of those books. But again, it's humanistic as well as fun to see what others are reading. This one also can be followed on FB.

That's it for now. I do have a blog tour at the end of the month so I'll at least be back for that, though I am hoping to read and review a couple R.I.P type books for this Halloween month!

I love, love, love the UNYPL website! I always get excited when someone is reading a book that I've read before!

I am just going to try more reading at my own pace, and in Nov/Dec my goal is to read my own books...from my overflowing bookshelves!!

These are websites that I want to check out! I get so nosy about what people are reading, and have to find out the title whenever I can! Thanks for sharing this Jenny! I hope that your October is full of good reads.

You'll get your reading and blogging mojo back one day. I go through phases like that too. And those sites sound really interesting. Maybe you'll be featured one day!!
