Do you practice baby-led weaning? If you do share your favorite foods and tips.
We will be starting foods soon and are trying the baby-led weaning approach. If you are interested in learning more this book is great @borntoeatbook. I am also planning to share some of our experience on the blog so keep an eye out for that!
Currently reading an amazing collection of short stories. Tales of loss and pleasure, lovers and family. I started reading today and I’m halfway through and obsessed. #lorriemoore is an amazingly gifted writer.
“It's not just about avoiding or overcoming economic uncertainty, it's about creating something for yourself and having ownership over that, and that's a wonderful thing.”

I typically enjoy what Chris Guillebeau puts out, and this was no exception, though I didn’t think I would be reading it so soon after it’s release. I love his side hustle ideas, especially since this approach to life largely helped me put food on the table while in grad school.
This time around, I took other insights regarding how to help get some of my other passion projects off the ground. I’m still seeing the ways I’m benefitting from having gone to his book signing in La Jolla a month ago!

Instagram is being SO off tonight. My Wi-Fi is fine but it's posting so slowly and keeps crashing. I'm going to come back tomorrow night around 4:30pm PST! I have so so much to show you guys. Sorry for the delay!!
Spooky reads for Halloween: "You" is about a stalker from the perspective of the stalker, and "The Hot Zone" is about the first Ebola outbreak. I'm a huge baby about this sort of thing so I read them both during the daytime. 🙄

It's nearly the end of October, and generally I am a notoriously slow reader, but I'm going to give #victober my best shot over the next week. @infinite_text mentioned this book challenge in a post a while ago, and it's right up my street...all about Victorian literature in October.
1. Read a Victorian book by a Scottish, Irish or Welsh author
2. Read a supernatural book
3. Read a book by a lesser known Victorian author (12000 or less ratings on Goodreads)
4. Read a Victorian book that someone has recommended to you
5. Read a book by a female Victorian author
1. R. L. Stevenson (Scottish). "The Body Snatcher" (I'm cheating here as it's a short story!)
2. Ambrose Bierce "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" (another short story!)
3. Charles Dickens "American Notes for General Circulation". I thought I knew Dickens pretty well, but I had never heard of this book before I spied it at a jumble sale recently! 🤔 It's evidently a travelogue about a trip Dickens made to North America in 1842.
4. M. R. James "More Ghost Stories" suggested by @finepreserversbooks
5. Mary Elizabeth Braddon "Lady Audley's Secret"
Randomly I managed to pick 5 books with orange/green spines and which are all Penguins! 😄
Have you read any of these? Or are any on your #tbr ? If you're taking part in #victober how are you getting on, and what are you reading?
Oh and has anyone else not heard of Dickens' "American Notes", or is it just me?!
🎃 Halloween Reads | Frankenstein by Mary Shelley 🎃 (Though Frankenstein is more of a sad story than a scary one but it's still classic horror!) "Even broken in spirit as he is, no-one can feel more deeply than he does the beauties of nature. The starry sky, the sea, and every sight afforded by these wonderful regions, seems still to have the power of elevating his soul from earth. Such a man has a double existence: he may suffer misery and be overwhelmed by disappointments, yet, when he has retired into himself, he will be like a celestial spirit, that has a halo around him, within whose circle no grief or folly ventures". #frankenstein#maryshelley#halloweenreads#currentlyreading#currentreads#bookstagram#classicbooks#classichorror#horrorfiction#books
