Cookbooks Galore

Cover of the book "Starting Out: the Essential Guide to Cooking on your Own."

It’s the start of a new school year. Everyone is getting settled into their new routines. I for one have spent most of the past month eating out every day. In an effort to curb this bad habit I decided to check out some cookbooks and try to improve my skills in the kitchen. Now I’m sharing what I found with you all in hopes to inspire more people to become amateur chefs with me.

Romance, the Genre

I’ve decided to write up a little post about one of my favorite genre's, romance. I've included a little bit of everything: data, history, and most importantly recommendations!

Pride Month Recommendations 3/3

Seven of the documentaries on the list arranged in a circle.

For the first week of the month after Pride month(aka July) I am posting video media about LGBTQIA+ folks. I've tried to include a little bit of everything from streaming sites, feature films, indie films, and documentaries. I hope you've enjoyed this Pride Recommendation series!

In honor of Pride Month I decided to do a series of fiction and film recommendation list to the blog. This week I've created a list of science fiction/fantasy, romance, and poetry/short story anthologies. Two weeks ago I did adult fiction, young adult fiction, and graphic novels. Next week will be the final post about video media.

Pride Month Fiction Recommendations 1/3

Pile of eight books on my desk

In honor of Pride Month I decided to do a series of fiction and film recommendation list to the blog to go along with the list of memoirs we posted last week. I’ve divided the books by basic genre and format starting with adult fiction, young adult fiction, and graphic novels this week. Next week will be sci-fi/fantasy, romance, and poetry/short story anthologies and the last week will be video media.

Let's hear it for audiobooks!

Headphones around five books

I recently discovered that U-M got a newish audiobook provider, EBSCO Audiobooks. In honor of my belated discovery I wanted to talk about this format. In this post I will go through my exploration of the medium and give some tips and tricks for trying out audiobooks. I hope you will be inspired to try them yourself!
