World Book Day 2017

It's World Book Day, arguably one of the best days of the year. It certainly comes close to National Stationery Week as one of my favourite geeky 'holidays'. It really should be a holiday, doncha think? Give everyone the day off to read, I say! I thought I'd do a bit of a Throwback Thursday… Continue reading World Book Day 2017

Saturday Share #84

This week I've LOLed at awesome posts on Cornish life and politics, drooled over mug cakes and swooned over travel photo diaries. Gotta love the blogosphere! I love reading book reviews from people who have just read one of my favourite books for the first time. Anastasia is no longer a Jane Austen virgin! I've… Continue reading Saturday Share #84

My 2016 Goodreads Challenge

I'd had a Goodreads account for a while but not really used it until this year. When I was bored I liked to rate books in order to get recommendations but I never used it to track my reading. This year I set myself my first challenge - to read 50 books in 2016. I… Continue reading My 2016 Goodreads Challenge

Beautiful books

I've recently pinned and wish list-ed a whole load more that I want to share with you but I don't want to re-share anything I've mentioned before - there's only so much space! So if you want to see… Continue reading Beautiful books

Wish list: Babylit board books

Again, this is something I first came across on the joy that is Instagram and I fell hopelessly in love at first sight. It looks like a great way to introduce your child to classic literature - plus they're board books, so Jenson can't tear the pages and can chomp to his heart's content. Thing… Continue reading Wish list: Babylit board books

I'm not gonna lie; I have, like, a dozen Amazon wish lists. You've gotta organise your shit, right? Just like with Pinterest! There's one for books, DVDs, Pop Vinyls, homeware, stuff for Jenson... The other day I shared some mini reviews of what I've been reading lately and it got me thinking about all of… Continue reading A peak at my Amazon wish list
