    Thank you for this post! :D I usually read a lot of nonfiction but I haven’t so far in ’14. I need all the help I can get!

    • I love non-fiction, but fiction gets so much hype on other blogs, I definitely have to work to fit it in sometimes! I hope you find some great non-fiction to read this year :)

    I love those Goodreads features too! And I actually didn’t know that you can search giveaways by tags, so thanks for sharing! :) I’m reading Year of No Sugar right now and liking it so far. Regenesis sounds pretty cool, but scares me a little bit, haha.

    • I think Year of No Sugar sounds fascinating, but possibly also overwhelming! From the book description, it seems as though a lot more of our food contains sugar than just the desserts so cutting it entirely could be very difficult. I actually work on a DNA binding protein which could be used for synthetic biology applications so Regenesis sounded like a perfect read for me :)

    Thanks for sharing the EarlyWord website. I’m going to bookmark it because I love book previews.

    How did you find those features at Goodreads? I love the one for settings especially.

    • That’s a good question! I think I heard about them from two different bloggers, but I can’t remember who or I would have credited them in the post. I probably bookmarked them over a year ago and didn’t keep track of how I originally got there. Thanks for adding a link! I love books about books :)

    I added a link. The book is about fiction, but it is a mystery reference book… that I loved.
