Childhood Reads: Sideways Stories from Wayside School


How many books can you remember from your childhood? I was thinking about some of the books I read from my childhood and tried to remember which ones I read. It has been a long, long time since I read these stories but obviously some I can still remember. The last time I recalled a favorite childhood read of mine, Magic Tree House, it was during November of 2018. I figured it was time to continue this little series once again. I really wanted to remember a book I read that I can bring a memory along with it. Then it hit me that there was one book I should mention.

March 2019 Recap – Slacking?


Can you believe that it is April already? We’re now into the 4th month of the year and time is already going way to fast. Before we know it, it will already be summer! While I look forward to summer so I can sit back and relax, let’s look back to last month to see how I did. Honestly, I am little worried to see how I did.

Covers by Color


A couple of weeks ago, I had this idea while looking at covers and noticing the colors on the covers. I wondered if one color was often used more than others. Could it be strategy, or could be my own aesthetic in covers? In order to figure this out, I went through my list of 250 read books. Through the 250 books I looked at, I separated the covers into their respective groups by colors. If a book had a pattern, a design featuring more than one colors, or if I really couldn’t pick which group to put in because of the choices. After compiling the lists, I entered the data into a graph to see my results.

You may even be able to guess which the first book is!
