dewey-300x300Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon – April 26th

Basically this event is an excuse to do what we’ve all secretly wanted to do and completely blow off the world for a day and just read. Last year I stayed up for all 24 hours and it was fantastic. Recommendations for having a good time include: periodic breaks to get snacks and stretch, some short books, and participation in mini-challenges and twitter chats. Sign-ups are here.

LGBT Month – April

I’ve been wanting to read more books with LGBT characters for a while and this event is the perfect time for it. There will be a read-a-long, twitter parties, giveaways, and discussion posts. I plan on reading Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe and possibly also Two Boys Kissing, as well as participating in as many of the other activities as I can find time for. Sign-ups are here. Read more »

Bloggiesta Mini-Challenge: Using Social Media

March 26, 2014 Blogger Events 56

Banner

Hello all and welcome to the Bloggiesta Social Media mini-challenge! There are many mini-challenges about the details of how to use specific social media sites, but this isn’t one of them. Today, I’d like to focus on the big picture: what kind of content to share on each type of social media and how to use different social media platforms in a complementary way. Basically, this post is for people who start out like me, more uncertain about what to do with these sites than about how to use them. At the end of the post I’ve got a fun giveaway of a $15 gift card to Amazon or TBD, starting at midnight tonight when Bloggiesta officially begins. All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment telling me one thing you’re going to do to improve your social media presence and/or share something you think people should know about using social media. So, here we go!

Love For Books Read-athon

February 17, 2014 Classics, Fiction 4

As always for longer read-athons, I’m just going to try to read a bit more than usual. This week, I’d particularly like to read and review When Beauty Slept and The Bombers and the Bombed since they come out on Thursday. I’m also hoping to fit in something just purely for fun without a review deadline. Perhaps The Wife, the Maid, and the Mistress or The Year of Living Biblically. I’m also looking forward to the mini-challenge! I’ll be tracking my reading progress throughout the week here.

Literary Love 2014 – Bookish Things I Love

February 12, 2014 Blogger Events 50

For the longest time, I didn’t own any bookish clothes or knick-knacks, but with Christmas and a recent birthday they’ve started going on my wishlist. I’ve also been participating in some book swaps and they’re getting to be one of my favorite bookish events. It’s so much fun to get to pick books out for someone else! And it’s equally exciting to get a surprise package from someone else with books and gifts. Today, as part of Literary Love 2014, I’m going to share with you of some of my favorite bookish gifts I’ve gotten. Read more »
