I am an avid reader and book blogger who enjoys engaging in meaningful discussions. Much of my reading involves literary and contemporary fiction, but I love a well-written nonfiction or memoir. This blog is my attempt to reflect, record, and connect.
As you may have noticed, things have slowed down lately on my blog. Fall has been an extremely busy season that has, unfortunately, left little time for pleasure reading. I finished moving a few weeks ago and have been steadily unpacking and settling in to my new place. Then, there is the slew of fun fall activities and social gatherings that have been filling up my days. Apple festivals, scrumptious baking, a pumpkin carving party, and gorgeous weather make for a fabulous fall. However, I haven't finished a book in weeks and it's really beginning to take its toll on my sanity. Hopefully as the days grow shorter and the weather cooler, I'll be able to settle in for some more of the reading, reviewing, and commenting that I so love.
In the meantime, here are a few pictures of a couple of baked goods I've made so far.

The trip to the Apple Festival yielded a peck of the wonderful fruit, and now I must find uses for all of them. Hopefully everyone's fall has been special in some way. What have you all been up to this season?
