Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

Monthly Reads - March 2011

This month was....different. It started with one of the worst storms we've had all winter (lost TONS of branches from our pine trees). Proceeded to rain for far too long. Gave us wonderful days full of 60 degree sunny goodness and now, it's ending with yet another snow storm. So large in fact, that I'm sitting here typing this with a large smile on my face because on April 1st I will be sitting at home enjoying (hopefully) my last no school / work snow day of the season! Gotta love working at a school!

As for books - which, let's face it - is WAY more exciting and important then the weather - I think I did pretty good. Still need to kick it into high gear if I'm going to hit 200 books this year but, it's still all good :)

Wanna see!!

Oh man, I take it back! I didn't do pretty good at all this month! Blarg!

Oh well - that's what NetGalley and April is for! hehehe


  1. depends who you compare yourself to, Emily. Compared to me, you did VERY well. Unblarg.



  2. I think you did pretty good too! Also, I had no clue you read The Pull of Gravity and The Girl Who Was On Fire...I'm jealous.

    Since you didn't think you did all that great reading-wise in March, here's a good luck to a better April :)


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
