  • Raising Steam by Terry PratchettAbout the series: Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett is the fortieth book in the Discworld series (yes, four-zero-eth) and the third installment in a mini-series that describes a period of industrial revolution on the Discworld. For those of you w...
  • May Recap and Catching Up
    on Jun 15, 2016
    Or rather, a 'Remember-me?-I'm-NOT-dead!" post. I have started working as a middle school English teacher since the last time I was here and that keeps me more busy than I had imagined possible. But I have been reading and with the new job dust final...
  • Linguistalks with Payal Khullar
    on May 6, 2016 in interview language linguistics

    on Apr 5, 2016 in linguistics non fiction

The project is not what this post is about, but something I stumbled upon...

  • BBAW Day 3: Thank the Blogger
    on Feb 17, 2016 in bbaw
    When I read the prompt for today for the Book Blogger Appreciation Week at The Estella Society, I did not realize we could be talking about bad books. So mine is a politer Thank the Blogger instead of Blame the Blogger. I made a list of some of the b...
  • BBAW Day 2: Interview
    on Feb 16, 2016 in bbaw
    The second day of the Book Blogger Appreciation Week is interviews! Those of us who signed up were assigned bloggers as interviewees. I got  Heather from Based On A True Story. I love this day's task! I perused Heather's blog, discovered so...
  • BBAW Day 1: Books That Represent Me
