#Audiobooks

Today’s discussion is going to be about my relationship with audiobooks. I have a complicated relationship with audiobooks. I’ve only listened to four of them, one of them I tried listening to while reading along with the book, and that didn’t work out too well because I read faster than the audiobook went, and yes, …

#ChallengingReads

Today's short discussion is about challenging reads. Challenging reads are those books that are not meant to be easy to read. The most challenging book I have ever read was Homer’s The Iliad and the Odyssey. Yes, The Iliad and The Odyssey beat out Lord of the Rings, and some Shakespeare for the most challenging …

#BetweenTwoBooks

Today’s short discussion is going to be about reading between two books. Right now I’m reading The Iliad and the Odyssey. I have the hardcover and eBook of Samuel Butler’s translation. I bought the eBook so I wouldn’t have to carry the hardcover around, it’s a heavy book. I previously did this with Harry Potter …

#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 …
