Philadelphia was a city that surprised me in many ways. Passing through on my way from Washington D.C. to New York I thought it would be a nice, quiet stop over to break up the travel. Well, my dudettes, this city has a few things to offer. Namely, bookstores and history. Continue reading
Are you ready? Is your money lined up at the start line and ready to get you some books?! I SURE HOPE SO. It might be like mid-March but YA KNOW WHAT we’re still doing this.

Today I want to a steal of a moment of your day to note the passing of my precious cat, Smartie. I wish I could bring happier news but I am so, so sad and am going to therefore unburden this grief in the only way a literary blogger can. I want to discuss some of the characters that have touched my life in ways that are comparable to how Smartie enriched mine.
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with the juicy bone.
Silence the pianos and, with muffled drum,
Bring out the coffin. Let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling in the sky the message: “He is dead!”
Put crepe bows around the white necks of the public doves.
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my north, my south, my east and west,
My working week and Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song.
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.
The stars are not wanted now; put out every one.
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun.
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can come to any good.

This will probably be enormously long so how’s about we dive right in? Continue reading
After much reflection I have whipped up some excellent goals for the New Year. This is probably the first time I’ve really sat down to think about what I want to achieve with my reading life within the time frame of a year. YEARLY GOALS ARE ABOUND. But I can’t be bothered doing any fiddle faddling so let’s break it down and see what wonders I’m going to get up to in 2018. Continue reading
Hey guys! Today I thought we could have a look at something really cool that I’ve recently discovered. We’re all constantly looking at ways to improve our blogs – whether that’s by doing more discussion posts, getting on top of our reviews or beefing up our graphics. If it’s the latter, then you my friend are in luck. Today we’re going to work out how to make a logo for your blog in an easy and stress-free manner! Continue reading
