Bookish (and Not So Bookish) Thoughts (13)

Hey y'all!  I'm linking up with Bookish (And Not So Bookish) Thoughts over at Bookishly Boisterous again.
1.) Our library book sale was last weekend and I bought these Baby Sitter's Club book for 50 cents each.  Yes, I'm already hoarding books for my two year old to read when she's older.

2.) I also may have just bought a couple of the Russian language Harry Potter books on ebay.  I read the first two books in Russian and now would like to try continuing to read them to practice my Russian.  We'll see how that goes.  They were about half the price that I paid for each of the first two so it was pretty good deal.

3.) I don't know what my problem is but I haven't finished a book in like a week.  I like the books I'm reading right now, I just don't feel compelled to read.

4.) We went out for some amazing Chinese food last week and this was my fortune. I sincerely hope it comes true.  I desperately want to travel the world.

5.) I have been so lazy for the last few weeks and haven't wanted to exercise or do anything.  I really need to get back on the wagon with taking care of myself.

6.) Is it bad that I'm super excited for Christmas?  Because I am.  I always love the holidays and I can't to do all kinds of holiday stuff with Julia now that she's old enough to kind of know what's going on.

7.) One of the books I'm reading right now is called Raising Your Spirited Child.  I feel like the author wrote the book about my child.  There are even situations she describes that are exactly like things that happened to me when Julia was a baby.  It's the weirdest thing ever but I'm hopeful that it will provide me with some good tips for dealing with my child.

I hope y'all have a great week!


  1. I enjoyed your musings today. How old is your child? My babies are adults now. It happens.

    1. She's two and smack in the middle of the terrible twos. She's wonderful but also a force to be reckoned with. : )

  2. I got really excited to see that BSC club pic on your post. I started hoarding children's books for my future children before I even conceived them. My daughter is four months and has an extensive library. Hope she likes books!

  3. I would love it if Elley decide to read the BSC books when she's older. I actually still have a bunch of my favorites from the series, although if she wanted to read them all I'd need to fill in a few holes. Although I remember hearing a while back that they were publishing updated editions, changing things like private phone lines to cell phones. I'm not sure how I feel about that though, but I guess if it's a way to get kids interested...
