Quick Thought #12: Borrowing Personal Books

Hi everybody!

Today, I’m going to be discussing a very “frisky” topic on the bookish blogosphere. And that is borrowing personal books.

I really am not a fan of sharing my books, or sharing in general. I guess I’m not used to it, as I am an only child. I only like to share books with my aunt, as she is part of my family and I trust her.

Here are a few guidelines that I like to establish:

  • NO cracking of spines
  • NO tearing out pages
  • NO sharing with other people
  • NO bending the pages or cover
  • If any damage is done to the book, please replace it

So that’s it for today’s post!

If any of you have any opinions for this topic, please share them in the comments. I’d love to have a discussion with you!

Swoon Worthy Saturday! {03/21}

Today’s pick for Swoon Worthy Saturday is Four from the Divergent Trilogy!

I picked him an honor of Insurgent coming out!

Here are a few cool pictures of him that I found:

Projects I’ve Been Working On!

Hey guys!

Today I’m going to be sharing with you a few project I’ve been working on!

First, I wanted to share that I created a bookish collab blog with seven other awesome book bloggers! Many of them you will probably realize from the comment section of many of my blog posts!

Here’s the site, so you can check it out! It officially starts on the first Monday in April: The Bookish People!

Second, I wanted to tell you that I am participating in the Day Zero project! Basically, you create 101 things to do in 1001 days! I’m so excited to participate in it! It’s called Alyssa In 1001 Days! 

Those are all of the fun and exciting projects I’ve been working on! I encourage you to check both of this awesome sites out!

I’ll see you tommorow with a new bookish related blog post!

Quick Thought #11: Why it’s REALLY IMPORTANT That You Have an About or Contact Me Page on Your Blog!

Hi everyone!

Today, I’m going to be posting a Quick Thought, of an opinion that I formed last night.

Last night (actually 2 nights ago), I created a Bookish Collab Blog! You can visit it here, but it won’t be officially starting until April 6. If you want to join for The Bookish People 2.0 (starting in September), please check it out so you can sign up: https://thebookishpeople.wordpress.com/

Anyways, I was contacting a TON of people to see if they wanted to join for the 1 run, but a lot of my favourite blogs do not have an “About” or “Contact Me” page.

First of all, I totally understand why you don’t if you don’t feel comfortable with people contacting you, but in my opinion a MAJOR part of book blogging is getting books for review, and how can people send them to you if you cannot be reached? Just a side note, social media IS NOT considered contacting.

Second, I wanted to reach a lot more people then I did, but I could not because they did not have a contact form or email address associated to many blog’s, so I could not reach them! This made me very upset because I would’ve liked to hear from a lot more, but there was no chance I could have.

There are so many AMAZING opportunity’s that you may be missing because there is no way that others can contact you. And if you do have an “About” or “Contact Me” page, then you are doing something right, and that’s for sure!

And that my friend’s, is the end to my glorious rant. I hope that you learned something, or that this was useful to you!

See you tomorrow!

Quick Thought #10: TIBF CLOSING! :(

Hi everyone.

Today, I’m going to inform you of something SUPER SAD!

Last November, I attended the INSPIRE! Toronto International Book Fair, and as most of you know, it was such a blast! Read about my experience here: https://readingreadingalldaylong.wordpress.com/2014/11/15/hi/

Sadly, they have decided not to make a 2015 version. Here is what they are saying:

I’m so dissapointed, as I had so much fun.

Although, I am aware that there are many other Toronto Book Fairs, which I’m currently researching. Here is what I’ve found so far:
