Listless Monday, Numb3r5 Edition

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature.  Be sure to check out their lists!

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

I finally am getting back into the swing of things (I think).  Though, I may have to make Listless Monday an every other Monday feature.  We'll see.  I tried my hardest to think of a BBAW-related list, but just couldn't think of anything that wouldn't simply be a list of awesome blog links.  And if you want that, check out my Second Opinions blog list on the right.  So, since some of us are school-ing right now, I thought it'd be appropriate to pull out a numerical list.  Books that have a number in the title.

And, since it is Book Blogger Appreciation Week, I thought I'd highlight a few of my favorite blogs that I think I've discovered since last September (hey, my memory isn't that great).  Mostly, these are the ones I've found because of the awesome features and memes they do.  The first two are found at the top of this post.  Court of Once Upon a Bookshelf, whose Listed feature is so excellent - seriously, she's much more consistent than myself and has a lot of interesting lists, including extensive Canadian books.  Also, Amanda of A Bookshelf Monstrosity whose Books by Theme feature is always a delight to look at.  While the lists are shorter, they are usually so much more in depth and can be helpful if you are looking for a few books on a specific topic.  And last, I just wanted to mention Danielle of There's a Book, whose A Bit of Me(Me) I've just started doing on a semi-regular basis.  I love that she's created this meme that helps me actually share something about me, rather than just what I read.  For, though we may spend hours and hours reading, it isn't the whole of who we are.  These are three blogs that I quite enjoy.  Be sure to check them out! 

Any additions to the list or blogs you'd love to share?

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. I love the "A Bit of Me" post that I read, but so far I've been too lazy to do one myself! Someday. I love the numbers list!

  2. Ahhh...you are so sweet! Thank you so much! I'm so glad you like the A Bit of Meme, I've questioned it, but everyone that participates is always so enthusiastic about it and even if it's just our little group I still quite enjoy it. It's truly so much fun getting to know everyone a bit at a time. :o)

    And thank you for sharing the other blogs with me! I am going to have to check them out, because I'm pretty sure I haven't been by before. Thank you!

  3. I love Danielle and her bit of me(me)!

  4. Shelley, hopefully you'll do one soon! They are fun :)

    1stdaughter, I like reading other people's bit of meme posts. Doing mine are sometimes hard, though.

    Lydia, obviously, me too!


Love it when you comment!
