Happy weekend! I’ve been changing up my theme and post designs a little bit this past week to move towards a smoother monochrome feel, so hopefully Paper Breathers will slowly become more readable and easier on the eyes and incorporate more of my personal tastes. I also started my second lab rotation this week and have been enjoying it soooo much. But that leaves not a lot of reading time meh.
- I mini-reviewed Merry and Bright by Jill Shalvis and Snowbound with the CEO by Shannon Stacey, two holiday romances that were cute… as long as I didn’t think about the actual plot.
- I reread The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin and still loved all sixteen characters, every one of them. #spreadthelove
- Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer shared blogger tips and tricks on organization and avoiding burn out. This is by far one of the best posts I’ve seen on this topic.
- Nicole @ Paper and Salt shared a mouthwatering recipe for hazelnut raisin bread inspired by Henry David Thoreau.
- Nikki @ The Paper Sea ranted about people who don’t treat e-reading as “real” reading, and she’s proud that she’s not a “real” reader.
- Rinn @ Rinn Reads discussed how web design has changed over the years. Do you remember shoutboxes and splash pages too, or am I just getting old?
- Stefanie @ So Many Books recounted the time when she forgot her Kindle during her lunch break. Hilarious and scary.
- Artist Lisa Congdon illustrates 20 quotes from authors. So much love for Mary Oliver I can’t even.
- Embrace your ignorance when self-editing. Take breathers!
- First Stanford code poetry slam is just awesome. It’s like geekiness times a gazillion.
- If you wrote Lemony Snicket fanmail, you’d receive a reply in code. #FANGIRLING
- Texas opened the country’s first bookless public library… can you imagine checking out e-readers? Too cool.
