The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek & Arrogant Devil

Happy Thursday! I’m feeling a little like this dog right now…sleepy. I’ve been missing lately, and I apologize for not giving any warning. Things got a bit hectic for a while, and I had to put blogging on the backburner. I had been mentioning that I was starting a FB group to buy, sell, and trade books. Well, my selling took off at an unbelievable pace, so I thought it best to officially start Ali’s Books LLC. While I’d hoped to one day open Ali’s Books, I didn’t figure it would be anytime soon (even if it is only an e-commerce business at the moment). So, lots and lots of research and paperwork has been consuming my life. Hopefully now that I have all of the initial stuff filed, I can start to find a new balance.

Readathon Updates #Tropeathon ~ 11/5/21

Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a great week. I feel like I’ve had a very productive one. I set up a FB group this week for people to buy, sell, and trade books and bookish items – Continental U.S. only (Sorry!), so if any of you are interested, here’s the site ~ https://www.facebook.com/groups/alisbooks4u. I am just getting it set up, so I don’t have a ton of posts up yet, nor have I sent out many invites yet.

Now let’s see what progress I made this week ~

October 2021 Wrap-Up

It’s that time again to wrap up another month. We have almost made it through another year. Thinking about time…are the rest of y’all finding that you’re labeling everything pre-covid or post-covid? I was thinking on my camping trip this past weekend about how covid has become a thing we track time around.

WWW Wednesday 11/3/21

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme is hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

Happy Wednesday!

I hope everyone’s having a great week! It’s currently raining and a whopping 46 degrees here in my neck of Louisiana, and I’m loving it!! And the temp is only expected to go up 2 degrees for the rest of the day. I have to enjoy it while it’s here, though, because tomorrow it’ll be back in the 60s for a few days and then back to the 70s.

It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve done a WWW, so this will cover everything I’ve read since then.

Readathon Updates #Tropeathon ~ 10/29/21

Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a great week. My oldest son competes in disc golf tournaments, and he has a tournament at a state park this weekend. It’s half way between his school and our house, so we’re going to go camping for the weekend there. We’re taking some other friends and family, too. It’s the second year we’ve done this, and I’m looking forward to a fun weekend.

Now let’s see what progress I made this week ~

Top Ten Tuesday ~ 10 Books/Series With Demons

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today‚Äôs Top Ten topic is Halloween Freebie. I decided to go with demons this week because is there anything scarier? Seriously, though, my picks might include some scary demons, but some of them include some very NOT scary demons. Last week I used TBR picks, so this week is all about books I’ve read and enjoyed.
