BBAW: Fighting Blogger Burnout (Revised)

BBAW: Fighting Blogger Burnout (Revised)

Happy Friday, Bookworms! We’ve reached the end of Book Blogger Appreciation Week *tear*. Our final topic is Fighting Blogger Burnout, which is something that every blogger I know has struggled with at one time or another. I am prone to existential crises, so periodically I get a case of the “does anybody even read my blog”s and “I am never going to get blog famous why do I even bother?”s and “this blogger… Read more »

Excuses, Excuses: Top Ten Tuesday

Excuses, Excuses: Top Ten Tuesday

Howdy Bookworms, It’s been a while since I’ve made a Top Ten List for the Broke and the Bookish.

I haven’t been keeping up with anyone else’s blog, I’ve barely been keeping up with writing mine, and I figure you all deserve to know the reasons…. Read more »

My Dysfunctional Relationship With Social Media

My Dysfunctional Relationship With Social Media

Good Day, Bookworms! It’s still Armchair BEA time and today we’re talking about social media. I have FEELINGS on the subject. Firstly, I am BEYOND grateful that I grew up before Facebook because having a record of every stupid thing I did or said while I was busy being a tween/teen would be highly upsetting. I’ve made enough faux pas in the social media world as a grown-ass woman. Sheesh. From a blogging… Read more »

Flattered and Flummoxed: How I Became a Resource

Flattered and Flummoxed: How I Became a Resource

Hidey Ho, Bookworms. By some internet witchery, it seems I have become an expert resource on all essay questions regarding Lois Lowry’s The Giver Quartet as well as an opponent of book banning worthy of quotation. My search terms recently have included an awful lot of “what is the symbolism of XYZ in The Giver/Gathering Blue/Messenger/Son” and “why was XYZ book banned?” I can only assume these searches are being… Read more »

Happy Tuesday Bookworms! The ladies of The Broke and the Bookish this week have tasked is with a doozy of a list. They have asked us what items are on our Bookish Bucket List.

My Life According to Books 2013

My Life According to Books 2013

Greetings Bookworms, It’s been a slow reading week, my friends. I’ve been working on Rebecca for The Fellowship of the Worms next week and I’m a little behind schedule. What else is new? Anyway, Rory (from Fourth Street Review) turned me onto this post from popculturenerd.com and I’m enamored. Using the books I’ve read so far this year as a guide, I’m going to complete the following sentences. It’s like a cross… Read more »
