The Weekly Update: 4/30/17

Blog/Bookish Updates: My Amazon wishlists, which is how I keep track of books I’m interested in, will no longer allow me to filter by price drop or sort by price. It’s also an infinite scroll now instead of pages. I’m not happy about either of these things. My wishlist has nearly 1000 books, so I...

Bookish Musings: Ten Awesomely Interesting Book Titles (2)

Everyone get excited because it's time for another post about weird, interesting, funny book titles! Ok, fine, maybe it's not that exciting, but it's a fun post at least, and fun is always a good reason to get excited :-D Anyway, as someone who spends a lot of time on Goodreads and the ebook section of Amazon and NetGalley and basically every other bookish site out there, I inevitably come across...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/23/17

My tennis elbow is hurting too much to ignore and I've actually been trying to rest it the past couple days, so I don't know how much commenting I'll be able to do today. I might have to leave a quick, generic comment sometimes just to let you know I stopped by or only comment every other Sunday or something because Sundays are the hardest on my arm, but I don't want you all to think I don't care...
 

Bookish Tag Post: Birthday Party Book Tag

It's my birthday today! So even though I would normally post a review on Fridays (if I post at all), I decided to switch it up today and post not only a tag but one that I created! I actually looked for birthday book tags, but the only one I found was good but not really what I was looking for, so I just created my own. Problem solved! And since I love those kinds of tags where you choose some...

When one of the ships gets damaged, the very fate of...
 

Bloggy Musings: Is Blogging a Creative Outlet?

I was actually inspired to write this post by Karen's discussion (and the ensuing comments from other bloggers) @ Kissin Blue Karen about whether or not you'd keep blogging if no one read your blog. It was interesting because it seems whether or not someone would continue their blog depends on why they blog, what they gain from it, etc. I for one would not keep blogging if no one read my blog,...
