Wednesday Web Wanderings #2

Saw some cool things on the web lately and hope you find one to tickle your fancy. Silly or informative, there's random info here for everyone.

Here's a list of the 12 books most often referred by this blogging librarian. Surprisingly, I've not read any of them and, in fact, have only heard of one.....lots of new material here!

Living in Seattle, I'm very well aware of the bike riding community - there are LOTS of cyclists in the area. Here's some recommended reading (fiction and non) for the cyclist in your life.

It's nice to see the 'live greener' lifestyle showing up in the publishing world. Penguin Random House has made a major commitment and huge strides in achieving their goal of leaving a lighter footprint.

Ohio's governor is making huge strides towards having Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program available to every county in the state. The program, funded by donations and volunteers, provides free books to any pre-5 aged child who signs up.

Have you been looking for a book club but can't find one in your area? There are lots of online options and here's a recommendation list for you.

Do you sometimes find yourself in need of royalty-free photos for a project? You've probably noticed that we use pexels.com and unsplash.com often for our images (I always try to give credit for the photos we use). Now there's a library of free illustrations of the natural world available from The Smithsonian.

Hope you found something useful or interesting in the random collection above. Until next time, Happy Reading!

Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's our goal to provide real reviews of the books we read (and we both read a lot of different genres), so that you can be introduced to some new books or authors to add to YOUR TBR (to be read) list. Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let us know what you think.


For your convenience, we use #hashtags in our reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate our site and find books you'll enjoy.

Our review ratings are based on a 5 star (we do use 1/2 stars sometimes) system, and hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - our opinions!  Let us know if you agree or disagree - we want to hear from you.

If you like what you see and want to keep up with us, subscribe below.  Happy Reading!
