Little House Read-a-Long news, #Estellagram

  • I have made the decision to move ALL of the opening posts for the Little House Read-A-Long to the first Monday of the month, instead of the first of the month. I don't know about you guys, but it's much easier for me to put together a thoughtful post over a weekend. I apologize if any of you rushed to get it read before today. I have finished Little House, but I didn't want to just throw a post up.
  • Are you on Instagram? Are you participating in the #Estellagram? No? You should be! I am, you can follow me as lharsma.
  • In possibly the most exciting news in years, we have a moving date! Guys, I'm so ready to leave this little apartment!! March 23rd! (Coincidentally, Mike's birthday.)
  • Which means that yesterday our dryer stopped working. Yes, it's part of the apartment, not ours, but really? We couldn't go another month without having to call the landlord?
  • Florida man swallowed by sinkhole in bedroom. Horrifying!
  • I had a job interview yesterday, and I realized on my way to the interview that it was the first time in my life that I've ever interviewed with a man. It was also the least chatty interview I've ever done. I don't think this was a coincidence. In other job search news, I have not yet found a job, but I'm getting pretty blase about interview outfits. Also, if you are looking for a state job, be warned that the process moves very very slowly and it doesn't pay to get your hopes up.

What I Read This Week:

  • First, let me just say how glad I am that I keep this running list, because otherwise I'd just completely forget what I read!
  • Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Of course.
  • Back to the Good Fortune Diner (Harlequin Superromance) to by Vicki Essex. I was expecting good this from this from other reviews, but couldn't ever connect with either main character and ultimately didn't buy the love story. It was a NetGalley book, so expect a short review about why.
  • Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I really wanted to finish this one this week for it's release date. I did not make it.


  1. Oh, I bet you are so ready to move!!

    I'm doing The Estella Gram Photo Challenge too and just followed you on instagram.

  2. I'll definitely be participating in this photo-a-day challenge. I'm actually looking forward to it. If you want to follow along, I'll be posting my pics at Book Binge on Instagram.

  3. Argh. I keep thinking this challenge is for the end of the month. I'll do my best to read Little House tomorrow, but I'm not making any promises. It might be later in the month. I think what threw me off was that first one was only a couple of weeks ago. It's not that they're that's just a matter of fitting in the time. All this said, I'm still in. :)

  4. Yay for bookish photoaday! I am loving it... it is totally neat to stalk the #estellagram hashtag. :)

    Woohoo for moving date!!!! Waiting on a date sucks.. but now you have it and can count down!!

    State jobs in NY are the same way... slow as molasses.
