Top Ten Tuesday: Book Cover Freebie

When you think about buying a new book, and you aren’t sure about what book you’re actually going to buy, a book cover plays a huge part in actually making that choice. I do love a shiny bright cover as much as the next guy. I also love a clever cover, or a new take on a classic. As you can tell, this is an awesome topic for me, so I have taken it and ran with it.

For all of you 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 “Top Ten Tuesday: Book Cover Freebie”

January: It’s a Wrap

Can you believe that we are already at the end of January? No, neither can I. I feel like 2017 is disappearing in front of my eyes. Not that I am wasting it. Well, not completely wasting it. It just seems to be disappearing very quickly. Before you know it the Christmas decorations will be back out (I say this like ours are completely away….). I welcomed the year with some pretty hefty resolutions (see here). I’m not going to lie, a lot aren’t going to great, but we have 11 more months to sort those ones out. But some are going well, mainly the reading ones! Continue reading “January: It’s a Wrap”

Friday Reads: I’ve got that Friday feeling

rebeccaI’ve got that Friday feeling today. Y’know the one, where work doesn’t seem to be dragging, your mood is much brighter, and the weekend is here? Yeah that one. Which is weird considering I am going to be in work all weekend, and actually don;t have a day off until next weekend. But there we go. Friday’s can just be that good. I think the lie-in might have had something to do with it?? Continue reading “Friday Reads: I’ve got that Friday feeling”

Bout of Books 18: It’s a wrap

bob-expert06And that, as they say ladies and gentlemen, is that. I can’t believe we are over a week into the new year. I can’t believe that the readathon is over once again. I have had a really good week, in life, in work, and in reading, so it has been a pretty good start to the year all in all, how about you?

Anyway, the readathon. How did you get on? Continue reading “Bout of Books 18: It’s a wrap”

Bout of Books 18: Day 7

bob-expert06I hate this day, the day when Bout of Books comes to an end and I feel a little bit lost. Because I will miss the daily posts, the structured reading, the challenges, the twitter chats, and of course all the lovely bout of bookers who join in. Sigh, at least the FA Cup continues today. At least I have things to do and Sherlock is on again tonight. What am I going to do without Taboo and Sherlock to look forward to at the weekend? Continue reading “Bout of Books 18: Day 7”

Bout of Books 18: Day 6

bob-expert06It’s the weekend: yey! I have the weekend off: yey! It’s the penultimate day of Bout of Books 18: booo! After all the overtime I have done this week, and know I have lined up for the rest of the month, I am quite tired. So, to combat that, Emma and I have devised a day that has maximum productivity for minimum effort. That sounds about right for the first Saturday of 2017, right?!
