Grab A Book and... Just Enjoy


Books I Have Read Recently

Oh, hello there, book friends, it's been a spell, hasn't it?

When I started this blog a couple of years ago, I had plans to write tons of reviews. But clearly that didn't happen. Why? I don't really know. Perhaps because once I finish reading one book, I am eager to jump right into another because like most of you I have piles and piles of books to be read. Aren't we all eyeing the next read before finishing the one in hand? 

I also now have realized I don't really want to write reviews. Once I finish a book, I love for it to linger in my thoughts for a bit, but I don't want to then write a book report. That just feels like work. There are tons and tons of reviews out there already... Goodreads, BookPage, Amazon, etc. I don't think my opinion about a book is going to be any different from what thousands of other readers have noted. And, frankly, I have begun to avoid reading reviews because too many give too much away. 

Instead, I realize I just want to share my journey, my thoughts, my motivations. I want to tell stories about the stories. Such as how I bumped into a particular book, what my book clubs are up to, how I feel about current publishing trends. I want to tell you about the books I find in a Little Free Library or at Goodwill, the books stacked on my nightstand, the book paraphernalia I can't resist, my book buying addiction, and my book purging struggles. 

I just want to grab a book and enjoy it -- and along the way share the joy. 

Ah, yes, that is what I want to do here at A Well-Lighted Place. Welcome.
