Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Cards

You know what's great about the topic playing cards? They're all red and black, my favorite colors! However, I didn't end up sticking to just playing cards. I couldn't quite tell what some of the cards on covers were and just using playing card covers was limiting, so tarot cards, baseball cards---really any palm-sized cards---I also deemed appropriate. Speaking of cards though, it has been a...

The Weekly Update: 10/16/16

I did it! I actually did it! I saved my old email from the clutches of complete chaos and utter spamdom! See, I have this other email (not the one I use for blogging) that I used to use for everything. But over the years, it became completely overrun with newsletters and spam.

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Circus

I am SO EXCITED about this week's topic! I mean, seriously: 1) Have you seen my bio? Even the mini one in the sidebar? 2) I used to do circus myself for a brief period of time---I even included a photo at the end! 3) I made this post even before I knew this would be an official topic because I just wanted to do this topic anyway. 4) Every single book on here came from either books I already own...
 

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookish Goals for the New Year

Since I haven't said it yet, happy New Year to everyone! But here's the thing: I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. The concept behind them is great, but they backfire. They put into our minds that, the moment we falter, the whole thing's a bust, and now we have to wait until next year to try again. But we don't! It doesn't have to be the first day of a new year to make a change. It doesn't...
