Baby Book Addict, Miscellaneous Ramblings

Random bookish ramblings

Happy Labor Day to those in the US. Hopefully everyone has been enjoying their long weekend …. At least those of you who get a long weekend. It’s been a quiet weekend at home for us and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.

I’ve been taking advantage of having time to go through some stuff here at the house. I am such a hoarder! Not really, but I do have a lot of crap.

After a lot of consideration, I decided to purge a lot of my books. And by a lot I actually mean 93 books. That’s right, 93 books from my Mt. TBR that I know I will never read are going to either my local library or the Goodwill tomorrow. I’m long past due regarding this decision. My shelves are just a little ridiculous to be completely honest. I might as well let others enjoy them. Besides, I still have a grand total of 405 unread books that are staying here 🙂

Hi, my name is Tara, and I am a bookaholic!

Also, while cleaning out of my shelves I found quite a few good ARC’s that I have with nothing to do with them. So I’m considering a giveaway. But I’m still considering if I should just do one big box giveaway (I think I have a good 7 or 8 of the ARC’s) or if I should break them up somehow. I’m still thinking about it …. What is your opinion? One big box where the books would be a complete surprise when they arrived in the winner’s or break them up and offer them two or three per winner?

A quick Garrett update – he turned 3 months old on Aug. 30th. I can’t believe how much he has grown and changed. It’s unreal. Last night he slept through the night without the aid of his reflux medicine. We were up in the air as to what to do last night at bedtime. He ate at 7:30. I asked Nathan if he wanted to treat it as his final meal and give him his medicine, Nathan said no, that he would stay up and feed him again at 10:30-11:30. Well 10:45 rolled around and he was still sound asleep. So instead of waking him up we just let him sleep. Well, he slept until 6:15! And he’s gone all day today without his medicine. I was going to give it to him with his first bottle this morning, but Nathan wanted to see how he responded without it. So that’s what we are doing. So far no problems, but I’m sure it will be a few days before it leaves his system completely. I was just glad to know that he slept through the night without the medicine, I was afraid that that was what was making him sleep through, but maybe now he’s used to it enough. I hope 🙂

Oh and I am sad to report that I am putting Gone Girl aside for now. It’s just not working for me right now. I’ve had it out from the library for over a week and am barely 100 pages in. It will be due back this coming Saturday and I know that there is no way I will finish it before then. So I have decided to put it aside and maybe come back to it sometime in the future. I should have known better than to jump on the bandwagon, it almost always disappoints me when I do that. Oh well, maybe sometime in the future.

Hope everyone has a good upcoming week.
