The Book Buying Tag

As with all of my best tags, I saw this at the brilliant Emma’s blog over at The Terror of Knowing. Guys, if there is anything I know that I am good at (possibly too good) it is buying books.

WWW Wednesday #2: 19th April 2017

So a month has gone by since I discovered the WWW posts, so I have decided to use that to my advantage and pretend I meant to make it a monthly thing. *shush* don’t tell anyone my secret *shush*. So, yes, what have I been reading? Well, a lot is the answer, thankfully. I have taken part in Tome Topple for the first time (for those of you who don’t know much about it, click here for my updates and info post) and it is going quite well. I have also finished some books lately that have been on my currently reading list since the summer of 2016, so a good blitz was very much needed.

WWW Wednesday is currently hosted by Sam at Taking On A World Of Words so pop over to her blog if you want to see more readers’ WWW Wednesday posts. Continue reading

Because, let’s face it, why we read is pretty much the most important thing; why we read and how we enjoy it.

For all you lovely people who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, or don’t know how to get involved. click here. The lovely folks at Broke and Bookish team together to produce a book related topic each week, and you simply list the top ten of that topic. Continue reading

The Reader’s Questionnaire

So I was having a read through the lovely Jessica’s blog over at Ever the Crafter, and I saw this questionnaire that was floating around a few weeks, well months, well years ago, and I decided to look at this post, and then do it. I am sure it has been passed from person to person, and I am not sure who originally did it, but whoever it was, thanks!
