July 2018 Reading Vlog

I tried something new with my reading wrap-up video for July and made it into a reading vlog...

...in addition to books, you'll find cups of tea and snacks and even a mini stationery haul!

I was pretty proud of myself for getting through Dostoevsky's Demons this month, and I also loved discovering Elizabeth and Her German Garden as well as Dorothy Day's biography The Long Loneliness. The vlog format was fun because I included a lot of my favorite quotations, but here are just a few more...

 "I love tulips better than any other spring flower; they are the embodiment of alert cheerfulness and tidy grace."

Elizabeth and Her German Garden by Elizabeth von Arnim

"It seemed to me that the thought of traveling by post in a carriage (even with bells) must have appeared too simple and prosaic to him; pilgrimage, on the other hand, even with an umbrella, was much more beautiful and vengefully amorous."

Demons by Fyodor Dostoevsky

"But what is life if I cannot have my tea? It was always tea with them, every hour of the afternoon and evening."

The Long Loneliness by Dorothy Day
