I received a free 11×14 print from Easy Canvas Prints. All content and opinions are my own.
I don’t often remember quotes from books I’ve read. But this quote, from Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project has bounced around in my head ever since I finished the book. “The days are long, but the years are short.” There is such truth there.
I have kind of started a collection of items with this quote on it, like this printable from Pink Ronnie. And then I fell in love with this awesome print from HalfPintPrints. I purchased the digital download, and immediately uploaded it to Easy Canvas Prints to have it printed. The ordering process was extremely easy and straightforward. It took three weeks from the date I ordered to the date I had the canvas in hand, but they were upfront about the turnaround time on the website. When the canvas arrived, I could not have been more pleased. The canvas is thick and good quality and is reinforced by a wood frame inside. My favorite detail is the orange border I chose for the sides. I love the whole thing.
This canvas will last through the long days and the short years, for sure.
Is it really the end of August already? That means that we have reached the end of the third annual Utah Book Month! We had a great time featuring Utah authors and bloggers all month long.
Our annual Utah Books party was last night. Check out my post about the bash over on the Utah Books blog.
I also put together both chronological and categorical lists, collecting all of the Utah Book Month 2014 posts for posterity.
And, finally, here is a list of the Utah Book Month posts that appeared here at The Bluestocking Society:

This picture of Kami of Kami’s Library Thoughts, with her dog and a copy of Signed, Skye Harper by Carol Lynch Williams.
