Give your books a new, personalized home this year

Are you a bookworm like me? One who itches to buy and read more books than he/she can manage in his lifetime? Are you often seen in book shops, hauling new and old books alike to add to your ever-increasing to-be-read pile? If you answer yes, then I guess I am safe to confess to you this problem I currently have. It’s a given fact that I love reading. It is an integral part of my life. Of my existence.

February 2013 Wrap-Up

Books read: 17 It’s the time of the month again. Even though February has lesser days compared to the rest of the months, I managed to read 17 books. Yay!

Thanksgiving did come and go and I am very grateful with how I am doing in this blog. Now, I have almost 500 WordPress followers, plus SNS friends, so I really feel that I am doing something right in my writing (and ranting?).

October reads

For this month, I have read only five novels. I am certain that I can finish my Goodreads 2012 Reading Challenge that I have started last June, but with my current rate, I also know that I am behind the schedule.

The Bargain by Mary Jo Putney Rating: 3/5 I have, time and time again, confessed that I like regency era novels. There’s nothing worth Read More …
