The Rumble of Thunder

Have you heard? Borders is going out of business. This saddens me to such a severe degree. Are you a reader? What have you read recently? Why do you think people don't read anymore?

I ran to the one my house and bought three books: Sarah's Key, The Summer I Turned Pretty, and Saving CeeCee Honeycutt. Love. These are just a few books off my Must-Read-Soon list. Especially Sarah's Key. I bought the one with the movie poster on the cover. I didn't even know it was going to be a movie! Which brings me to The Help. Has anyone read that book? I can't wait for the movie!

Booknerd. That's me.

Now I'm home, it has started to pour, and thunder is rumbling in the background. Love. So I thought I'd show you my new favorite snack.

I go through phases with my snacks. My most recent one was grapes. Grapes, grapes, grapes, every day, after work, with lunch, cheese and crackers on the side. Now it's Stonyfield vanilla yogurt, Granny's Apple Granola from Trader Joe's (swoon), strawberries, and chocolate chips. The perfect yogurt bowl!


Goodness I'm chatty today.

What's going on in your neck of the woods?


  1. I love books too. This week I finished "Devil in the White City" and "Room". It is sad about Borders; we always liked it better than B&N.

  2. I'm a HUGE reader (who likes to bake too). I really enjoyed Sarah's Key and loved The Help!!

    Have you tried "The Winter's Sea" by Canadian author Susanna Kearsley? It's called Sophia's Secret in the US. One of my favourites! Also, "Secret Daughter" by Somaya Shilpa Gowda!!! A great read!!

    Come check out my blog for other book ideas. I have tonnes of book reviews to choose from ... plus some tried and true recipes t'boot! :)

  3. Eeks. My apologies to author Shilpa Somaya Gowda ... I mixed up her first and middle names in the post above. :s

  4. The signs showed up in our nearest Borders store this morning. So depressing. And just last month our Joseph Beth went out of business, but I've heard it's going to be a Books A Million now. We need some rain here- it's just stinkin' hot, so my favorite snack right now is anything cold from the refrigerator!


Thanks for stopping by!
