I cannot stand people who judge the type of books I read and, I am sure I am not alone in this sentiment. In my life my father in-law is the worst person for this. Let me start by saying we have an awesome relationship. He is a brilliant person, but when it come to … Continue reading Don’t Judge What I Read
Today we remember the brave men and women who served our country and paid the ultimate sacrifice. They fought to preserve our way of life, and to protect others when they could not do so themselves. War should never be glorified but we must take time to reflect on the sacrifice of those who fought … Continue reading Lest We Forget
I grew up in a house without a bookshelf. No, we didn't keep books in a pile on the floor or in a cupboard; and there were no trips to the library outside of what was compulsory at school.

You can add books to their own shelves, indicating if you own them, have … Continue reading Electronic Library Catalogue
Guilty or not guilty? Guilty. A while back on Instagram someone I follow asked for feedback on a couple of draft covers for their new book. The book sounds amazing, but the draft covers I hated. After taking on a lot of feedback the final cover is wonderful. Here's the thing though. I would never … Continue reading Judging Books by Their Covers
Let's talk about formats people! I received a book I ordered from Book Depository today (Kings Cage in case you were curious) and it came with an audiobook trial slip. This got me thinking about how I read books and how this might differ from other people. I only read hard copies of books. No … Continue reading Hardcopy, eBook or Audiobook???
