March book haul

So I may have bought a few more books this month than I was originally planning on. But in my defence, I have already read three of the books I hauled this month! So the TBR pile didn’t get that much bigger. These first three books I received as a mystery gift as part of my […]

Discussion – Amazon vs physical book shops

  I can’t possibly be the only person torn between ordering books on Amazon, or buying from a physical book shop. Approximately 75% of my books come from a physical book shop.

Discussion – Mismatching series

Some of my series don’t match. Every time I walk past my bookshelf, my heart breaks a little. Call me superficial, but I love the sight of matching series on my shelf. Surely I am not the only one in this situation? Why don’t my series match? Several reasons. 1. I couldn’t find the book in […]

Paperbacks and hardcovers both have their own […]

Discussion – Why I no longer check my Stats page

I have been blogging, on and off, for many years. I started my first website when I was eleven years old, with the help of my father, who taught me the basics of HTML. I taught myself basic CSS and web design. I have started more websites and blogs than I can count. My first […]

5 Popular books I have never read

I could probably make this post the first in a series, since there are so many popular books I haven’t read. So many amazing books come out each month, and even if I could read one book per day (which I can’t), I still wouldn’t have time to read them all. So I make choices. This […]
