Wednesday Web Wanderings #5

I absolutely love my new bookmark from Mitercraft, a company based on Guemes Island in the great Pacific Northwest. It's made out of wood from sustainably managed or certified forests and the selection of bookmarks is amazing and can be customized. In addition to bookmarks, they make coasters and cribbage boards and more. If you're looking for that perfect special gift, visit their website - you'll be amazed!

Good Morning America has put together a list of 22 books to read while stuck at home. Encompassing everything from fiction to thrillers to nonfiction to parental help books, there's surely something for everyone on this list.

How To Spend 42 Days Stuck in Your Room, an article by Will Schwalbe (author of End of Your Life Bookclub) is an interesting review of a book written in 1790 and how he wrote a travel book about being confined to his room. Interesting concept and execution.

A clever list-maker put their love of flowers and their love of books together to play matchmaker. Find your favorite flower and see what the book recommendation for you is......

Many celebrities are finding various ways to entertain during the virus restrictions - singing, joking, etc. Patrick Stewart (of Star Trek fame) is sharing his love of Shakespeare. Each day he is reading a sonnet (in order) on his Instagram account. You can follow it here.

One final link for you this week. Here's a brief history of word games (like crossword puzzles, etc.) that you might find interesting.

Happy Reading and Stay Safe!


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!
