Happy Tuesday everyone! This week's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is about the authors we immediately pre-order/auto-buy books from. This one will be a little hard for me because more than a few of my favourite authors are no longer living so auto-buying new books is not really an option (despite… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Auto-Buy Authors
You may have noticed I've been a little quiet the past few days. That's because I was in London! We went museum hopping and attended two plays, Bitter Wheat by David Mamet starring John Malkovich and an intimate performance by Marina Sirtis (of Star Trek TNG fame) in Dark Sublime. Both were incredibly enjoyable despite… Continue reading Whitechapel and West End Weekend

Harold and the Purple Crayon was one of my favourite books as a… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday update!
Even though I'm living in the UK now I still get my Independence Day on every July. Unfortunately I don't get the day off over here, but I'm going to celebrate with sparklers and a bonfire later tonight. To help get me in the spirit, I donned a USA t-shirt and hat and headed outside… Continue reading Happy 4th of July from A Little Nerd Told Me!
This week's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, was an amazing trip down memory lane! Both my parents are big readers so books were a part of my life right from the get-go. Many pictures of me as a toddler show me with a book in hand or see me curled up… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Childhood Favourites
This month I didn't finish as many books as usual, but it was for a good reason! With the weather being consistently decent for once in the UK, I spent a lot of time outside revamping our yards.
