I Need a Bigger Bookcase

KB's Journey

A more appropriate title for this post would be, “I need a bookcase.” We moved into our new place in May and are sadly without any bookcases. This wouldn’t be a problem if I didn’t have at least six boxes of my books stuffed in our yet-to-be-furnished home office. You would think that my lack of storage would stop me from buying books, but I can tell you that it hasn’t.

This summer alone, I have purchased seven books and checked out “Gone Girl” from the library. Don’t I seem smart? Well, I would feel even smarter if I took the time to actually finish an entire book instead of hopping from title to title like a frantic bibliophile. So, how do I prioritize?

First up will be “Gone Girl.” Everyone swears that this book is amazing and I have to return it to the library in three weeks. After that? No idea but these four books will definitely be next.


1. “Instinct,” T.D. Jakes | 2. “Daring Greatly,” Brene Brown | 3. “No Greatness Without Goodness,” Randy Lewis |4. “My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife,” Sara Horn


What books are you planning to read before the end of summer? It’s never too early to start building my September reading list.

    Hi Fab Giver!
    I’ve put a dent in my Summer Reading List, but I have these 5 books left:

    Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche
    Claire of the Sea Light by Edwidge Danticat
    The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears by Dinaw Mengestu
    Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory by David W. Blight
    A. Lincoln: A Biography by Ronald C. White Jr.

    We shall see if I get this done by Labor Day…maybe I will make it by Halloween!
    Happy Reading!

      Hey, boo! I have heard amazing things about “Americanah,” so I think I will add that to my September reading list. I’m intrigued by the title, “The Beautiful Things…” so perhaps I’ll add that as well. I can’t say that I’m surprised to see some Civil War books on this list 🙂
