Curse of the Third Book

(Man, that sounds like an awesome short story or something. Anyway.) I seem to have a curse laid upon me when it comes to obtaining books. I seem to have brought it upon myself, way back in high school, unknowingly. It began with an author I have come to love dearly, and am glad of … Continue reading Curse of the Third Book

Why I Need Feminism…or something. (Am I Doing This Right?)

I'll be honest. I'm tired of seeing those words in my title. I completely understand that gender inequality is rampant and that there are still major reasons that this phrase is traveling around the Internet. None of that is the issue.

Then I distinctly remember raising my hand after being told the minimum page length, and asking "Is there a maximum?") Everything was too long. … Continue reading It Needs to be How Long?!

On the Subject of Books

So I came across something on Tumblr the other day which really set me off. Someone had shared a picture which said "No one should be shamed for reading" and it had a picture of a little paper book and an e-book reader holding hands. Very cute. With the reblog, the poster says, "YES. I’m … Continue reading On the Subject of Books
