10 Books for the Literary Traveler

If you know anything about me, you know that I absolutely love traveling. While I’d love to go back to Singapore or Uganda… my bank account has been known to sabotage my plans. In case your checking account is just as evil as mine, here’s a list of old and new books that will transport you all over the world:

What am I reading next?

There hasn’t been a Top Ten Tuesday on Brown Books and Green Tea for a while! I figured I’d take the opportunity to let everyone know what’s coming up.

Ten diverse sites you NEED to bookmark

Hey there everyone! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday, sponsored by The Broke and Bookish. Check out their site for more things like this!

Doing that, I still didn’t get to 10. I tried. If you’d wanted me to make you sad, angry, indignant or lusty…I’d have had your back, though.

Clearing the Shelf for ‘ARC April’

I’ve actually already done this week’s Top 10 Tuesday– I wrote a post a while back titled “Books to Read if You’re in the Mood for Activism.” It’s not the exact same thing, but it’s close enough that I don’t feel like making a similar list at the moment. I’m also in the midst of an awful reading and writing slump at the moment, and am hoping this new topic will put the fire under my behind. I’ve signed up for ARC April, which is an opportunity for bloggers and reviewers to get some built up advanced reader copies off…
