Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys. My goal is to encourage, support and enrich your reading life by sharing my own reading life with you. I'll share reviews, news, decorating and gift ideas - whatever might be of interest. Let's talk books!

Understanding that reviews are very subjective, I'll be doing my best to give you enough information to decide if a particular book is for you.

If you'd like to subscribe below, I promise I won't flood your inbox but will make sure to treat your valuable time wisely.

 “The young’uns won’t do their chores, and yesterday, Martha Hannah was nearly an hour late with my supper. An Hour! Them books are doing that–surely making them lazy. The girls are letting the laundry an’ sewing pile up around their ears, and the boys are reading at the creek when they ought to be fishing and working the garden. Plumb can’t get ’em to work ’cause they’s so busy sitting and reading them foolish books you’re bent on bringing.”
