The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon

The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon

Good Morrow, Bookworms! Raise your hand if you use your smart phone more than you’re proud of. My hand is high in the air, y’all. (I blame Trivia Crack.) I remember hearing a whole bunch of folks talking about the awesomeness that is The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon so when it popped up as available from my library’s digital services, I had to download it. Because I’m controlled by… Read more »

No More Overdue Books: Getting Digital with your Local Library

No More Overdue Books: Getting Digital with your Local Library

Greetings, Bookworms! I’ve told y’all a time or twelve how much I adore reading on my kindle. (Sorry physical book purists, this post will be of no interest to you. You have my full permission to daydream about unicorns and puppies and singing penguins.) One of the biggest drawbacks for me when I first got the kindle was that I had to pay for all my books. Sure, there were free… Read more »

Digital Book Haul… Oh, the SAVINGS!

Greetings Bookworms! If you’re following me on Facebook (and if you aren’t, why not?!?!) you probably noticed that I have been freaking out over the Kindle deals this week on Amazon.

I think they deserve their own post, don’t you? 1. Fire from Heaven by Mary Renault: Cost= $1.99. Regular Price = $3.03. Savings = $1.04. I have… Read more »

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted To Know: A Bookish Q&A

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted To Know: A Bookish Q&A

Hey Bookworms! What’s this? Why it’s a survey about books! Why am I doing this? I may or may not be slightly behind in my reading. Plus, I like to change things up from time to time. So, I’d like to thank Rory at Fourth Street Review for inspiring Sarah of Sarah Says Read to complete this survey… I’d also like to thank Sarah for posting it so that I’d… Read more »

Holly Daze: Underachiever Extraordinaire (Life Well Blogged)

On Gold Mountain by Lisa See: A Lesson in Reading the Synopsis Before Purchase

Hey Bookworms, How is everyone doing today? I just finished slogging through Lisa See’s On Gold Mountain. It taught me a very important lesson. You should always read the synopsis of a book before you click purchase. This was on sale for the kindle so I snapped it up thinking, “Oh Lisa See! Always such great tidbits on Chinese cultures- quick reads too!” No. No, no, no. This book was not fiction…. Read more »

Confession Friday: I Don't Finish Reading Everything I Start

Welcome to the Confessional, Bookworms! Let’s talk about my secret shames, shall we? Ordinarily, I am a stubborn book finisher. There have been occasions where I power through a book where I hate the characters, hate the situations, and sometimes talk back to characters… Loudly. It makes me feel powerful to “not let the book win.” The books that have won haunt me. Let’s talk about them! I started reading… Read more »
