#ICatalogedMyBooks

This past weekend I cataloged my books. To do this I used Libib, it's an app and a website. I used the app because it allows you to scan the barcodes of your books, there were some books that I had to enter manually, but it was so easy to do because I looked for …

#AMemorableBook

Today’s discussion is also the blog challenge for day six of the biannual bibliothon. Today’s challenge is hosted by Gabi from A Bookish Gal and the challenge is to discuss your most memorable/favorite book from 2017. I read some great books in 2017, but there is one book that stands out from them all, and that …

#NoStars

Today’s discussion is about how I’ve stopped using star ratings on Goodreads. At some point last year, towards the end when I was reviewing books, I didn’t give them star ratings, and this was 100% unintentional at first. I could say that I kinda got lazy and didn’t want to think about how many stars …

#BigBloggers

Now, this post might offend some, but it’s been something that I’ve been thinking about discussing for a while. I’m talking about big bloggers, you know the ones who have thousands of followers, yup I’m discussing that. Another thing is that Drew from the Tattooed Book Geek tweeted about this. Now, I think that all …

#JustNo

#ChangeOfScenery

Sometime's reading or doing homework in the same place all the time gets boring, and for some, it's easy to get distracted. Recently some of my homework …

#Books

Today’s discussion is about books, but not just any books special edition books. I’ve seen a lot on Twitter and Bookstagram about the new special edition copies of A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, and that is what inspired me to write this post. In my own personal collection, I only have three …

#Libraries

If you couldn't tell from the title, today's discussion is going to be about libraries.  I've done posts about libraries in the past, which you can check out here and here.  I was actually inspired to write this post after I saw something on Twitter earlier this week that really annoyed me to no end.  …

#ReviewRequests

Today I'm going to discuss my experience with review requests. I was actually inspired to write this after seeing Drew from the Tattooed Book Geek wrote a very well written post about his experience with an author. Now, I have only gotten two review requests, but each one was different. The first request was through …

#LBOR

Today's discussion is about the ALA's Library Bill of Rights, more specifically The Freedom to Read statement. I'm currently in school to get my B.S. in ILS ( Information Library Services). For one of my assignments, I had to read the Freedom to Read statement. I found things really interesting, and some of the things that …
