Five on Fridays #3

Five on Friday displays the the top five things that have been on my mind this week! It could be book-related, but it may be music, movies, TV, personal life, food, etc.I’ve gotten painfully behind on my TV shows. When we moved, we lost whatever was unwatched on the DVR because we switched companies. We decided to save some money and get a cheaper package for TV at our new place because a) we wanted to be more productive instead of just putting the TV on whenever we’re in the living room and b) we could use our subscriptions to Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. So far it’s working okay…we just hate not having a DVR. I wrote a list of the shows we watch and when they’re on, but it doesn’t really help. Not to mention the fact that there are a lot of shows I watch without Chris. I can’t keep track of it all!! On top of THAT I don’t have any time for shows! I used to watch an episode or two in the morning but now I use that time for reading. I’ll probably expand on this topic in a later post…I’m not exactly happy at my current job. Or even with my career choice. I wanted to be an English teacher ALL through childhood until high school, but once I took a Marketing class I changed my mind. I thought it was something that came easily to me that I would be able to make […]

Five on Fridays #2

Five on Friday displays the the top five things that have been on my mind this week! It could be book-related, but it may be music, movies, TV, personal life, food, etc.Okay I’ve posted QUITE a bit lately about how much I love the library, how glad I am to now have a new library card, and how everyone should run out and get one. With my love for the library comes a little annoyance. I think it’s so great the amount of books you can get from the library… but the amount of AUDIObooks is frustrating. Even when the library has the audiobook you want, normally you’re like 30th in line to get it. I understand that they want to keep it like they’re “real” books so you have to check them out, but c’mon… it’s a digital file! Just gimme it! I’m not sure if it’s just my library that does this, but there has to be a better way. I had to request a CD audiobook through interlibrary loan in order to get one I wanted (and it was an older book, so that’s why it was even available). I’ve been trying to help my boyfriend get into reading and the only time he can do it is through audiobooks at work. He listened to The Maze Runner by using his Audible credit, but it’s impossible to get the second book! The eAudio wasn’t available through our library and we had to also request the CD version from […]

Five on Fridays #1

Today I’m introducing a “new” meme on Bookmark Lit. Friday Finds was getting to be too much work for me each week – I generally add a LOT of books to my TBR list each week. It took way too long to get the book images, create a post, link to the Goodreads, etc. If I only added a handful of books it wouldn’t be an issue. Regardless, I’ve seen this sort of post on a number of blogs lately but none of them seem to be attached to a specific meme. (Just to give some credit where it could be due, I’ve seen this kind of thing on Hello, Chelly! and Rosie Reads). This meme will basically be the top five things that have been on my mind this week! It could be book-related, but it may be music, movies, TV, personal life, food, etc! Without further ado, here’s the first Five on Friday! I’ll admit that I didn’t like this song at first. I miss the old T.Swift with her country songs and long curly hair. However, once I went to my college for alumni weekend, my friends and I listened to it literally on repeat and I haven’t been able to stop yet. It’s now one of those songs that reminds me of a super fun weekend with friends. I tend to scream it and go crazy in the car when it comes on, just like my friends and I did. My boyfriend said he could just […]
