#AMonthofFaves: Picking Favorites!
Pick a list (or general post) you loved from someone else this week! Link up at Girlxoxo!
I found a post I loved straight out of the box this week! Heather from Capricious Reader gave an overview of her reading this year, and she introduced the idea of having read "113 stories." Rather than saying she's read 113 books, she feels a more realistic view is "stories." Like me, Heather loves comics and graphic novels, picture books, and lots of other storytelling delivery methods and forms.
I've struggled with my own terminology this year as I've read oodles of single-issue comics which run about 25 pages. To say I've read books when I've read pieces felt...wrong. But I'm at peace with saying "stories," for sure.
I also really enjoyed Flo and the Green Light's post on some of the books that have surprised her most this year. Hint: we had some books in common, namely Where'd You Go, Bernadette?, by Maria Semple. That one really took me by surprise when I read it last year. Go check 'em out!
I can't wait to see what you're sharing today!
