“Having fun isn’t hard when you got a library card.” – Arthur One of the earliest memories that I have is going to the library with dad. It was a weekly ritual for the two of us. We would go to the library and I would pick up some new books and return the old book from the previous week, and then we would head … Continue reading An Ode to the Library
The first quarter of 2018 has come and gone, and it’s time for a little check-in on my reading goals, my accomplishments, and my failures so far. I set myself two reading goals at the beginning 2018, to a) read at least 50 books by the end of the year and b) to read even more diversely and inclusively than I did in 2017.

I discovered Rebekah and her … Continue reading Spotlight on Rebekah Weatherspoon
Hi. Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks. I announced on my Instagram that I was taking a little break from the blog to get myself all sorted and into a place where I wasn’t stressing out every minute of every day. If you haven’t checked out my bookish Instagram then you definitely should. (IG: CiviilyReads) I’m still a bit stressed but I’m definitely … Continue reading Hello. I’m back!
The one thing, that above all else, the food, the celebrations, the traditions, even the lai see (red envelopes), that comes to mind when the Lunar New Year rolls around is family. In China, millions of individuals leave the cities and bustling metropolises to go home for the New Year. They go home to celebrate the coming of the new year with their loved ones, … Continue reading Lunar New Year 2018: A Reflection
