Wednesday Web Wanderings #4


I hope you find something of interest in this random collection of links. Let me know what inspired you.....


My Favorite Web Finds


The finalists for this year's PEN/Faulkner award have been selected and the winner will be announced in early May.


I want to give a shout out to one of my favorite bookish podcasts, Strong Sense of Place with Mel and David, two Americans who live in Prague. Each episode they recommend 5 books about a specific place as well as lots of informative tidbits about it. This week was Morocco - and I learned that the oldest library in the world is in Fez, Morocco! Read about it here.


The watercolor art of Jonathan Wolstenholme expresses his love of old books and paraphernalia. And they are FUN!


This is a fun list - if you can't decide what to read next in March, here's a list based on your zodiac sign! Twelve books, each with a humorous rationale about why that book fits that sign. According to your sign, what should you read this month? I'm to pick up the fantasy The City We Became by N.K. Jemison (it's already on my TBR) but there were a couple others that looked intriguing.


The Audie Awards for 2020 have been announced recognizing the best accomplishments in audio books in many genres. The list also includes the finalist titles, so there's lot of great stuff here if you enjoy listening to your stories.


Have you read Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown yet? If not, may I recommend you pick it up soon? You'll be interested to know that George Clooney has signed on to direct the movie for Netflix! This book about the underdog men's rowing team of the University of Washington (Go Dawgs!) set in the 1930s is perfect fodder for an exciting movie.



Happy Reading!

Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's my goal to provide real reviews of the books I read without totally rehashing every plot. I'll never spoil a story by giving away a plot twist! Hopefully you'll find one or two of interest and will discover a new book or author to add to YOUR TBR list.  Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let me know what you think.

                            TIPS

For your convenience, I use #hashtags in the 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 the site and find books you'll enjoy. I've also recently added tags that will show up at the end of each review that serve the same purpose.

The review ratings are based on a 5 star  (1/2 stars sometimes) system with a 3 being an average read for me. I hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - my opinion!  Let me know if you agree or disagree - I'd love to hear from you.

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