For the past few years I've been trying to keep better tabs on what I read, with goodreads and keeping a list on LJ every year (which has been pretty fun!). Not too long ago I also made the LJ kikiweeki to put some of my thoughts about different things that I read (and possibly someday on things I watch); the name comes from my current quest to read at least an average of one thing a week, so 52 things a year.

There are a few things there that I put up recently and thought I'd share here.

[personal profile] tetleythesecond rec'd it out of her love for Selma Lagerlöf and I picked it up when I saw my library had it. I'll admit many of the thoughts are self-centred memories, but that's what tends to crop up in my brain when I'm reading memoirs of people's youthful years. (:

Another rec from Tetley because my library had it. I really loved this little book even when it broke my heart (as of course I knew it would, given the topic).

For something completely different:

This one is unlike the others in that it isn't a 'tab and talk' situation. The book had some excellent artwork that reminded me of the posts some flisties (*coughTetleycough*) made while decorating homes, especially posts about artwork. I went through the book and picked out the pieces that I quite liked and those that could potentially find themselves around my house, if I had a house to decorate instead of a Cupboard Over the Stairs. It's NSFW but some of the art is wonderful and worth the look!

So that's that.I've got some other books that I've read to go through. It takes me a while, but I love going through a book to pages I've noted and seeing what touched me as I read--and what continues to affect me during a second scan-through.

Back to going through my inbox, watching Turtles Can Fly, and enjoying my Anna Howard Shaw Day!

No no, certainly not you, I must have mis-remembered. ;D

Thank you! Can you believe I had typed most of it up for your birthday--terrible present, really, someone else's thoughts on a book--but didn't quite finish it and thus it got pushed off far too long?

Thank you for the pictures! Save for the pink, I find them both quite lovely places. (:
