This week was the last week before my classes officially begin, so I thoroughly enjoyed bumming around at home after lab everyday instead of doing anything substantial. I’m totally failing at my “rant more” New Year’s resolution… but I did create a new Goodreads account, so let’s be
procrastination buddies friends! 🙂
- I book blitzed Double Happiness by Tony Brasunas and I’m excited to review it next week!
- I loved The Humans by Matt Haig. This is probably one of the best books I read in 2013, full of beautiful math-inspired passages and hilarious alien antics.
- I also loved An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott, an annual re-read for me since I found the book randomly at a book sale. (My book-choosing abilities are awesome, yo.) I also compared this book to no pulp orange juice.
- Christine @ Readerly Musings mused about her newfound interest in collecting first editions and first prints.
- Kim @ Sophisticated Dorkiness shared her thoughts on what makes a great reading analytics program after reading this NY Times article, which I also shared a few weeks back. Someone should write a book on reader/reading psychology.
- Nikki @ The Paper Sea wondered whether or not reading speed affects your enjoyment of a book. I’ll be paying more attention to my reading speed the next time I pick up a book!
- Rinn @ Rinn Reads revealed three impressive objects in her newest feature, the Museum of Literary Wonders.
- She @ The Five-Eyed Bookworm reviewed The Giver by Lois Lowry and found it a “compelling read… [that] teaches us the value of freedom and individuality.”
- Book Riot’s 7 DIY bookmarks for the crafty reader. I especially like the lacing bookmarks.
- Goodreads Author Program now has 100,000 authors.
- Jill Guccini over at Book Riot said let’s all stop judging people by how much they read. Amen, sista!
