Do You Leave Comments on Book Reviews?

Let’s talk about anything bookish! A few months ago, I wrote about commenting on blog posts. However, in the last few weeks, I got to thinking. I don’t really get many comments on my book reviews. And this IS a book blog, right? So, this got me wondering, do you leave comments on book reviews? This made me think – do I comment on book reviews on other blogs? Why yes, I do… sometimes! I have also found that a few bloggers comment on my book review posts! Ultimately, book review posts are not popular on my blog if I just […]

The Case of Authors Behaving Badly

The Case of Authors Behaving Badly

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Hello, Wormies! A lot has happened in the reading community and as much as I wanted to weigh in on all the brouhaha, I have mostly remained silent on social media. Yesterday, I caved and wrote a longish statement on my personal Facebook wall. But that’s not what my post is all about. Today, I want to talk about authors behaving badly. There have probably been quite a few incidents in the past that have caused uproars in the bookish community as a whole. Clearly, it has become increasingly prevalent because of social media and […]

I am one bookworm that uses the LA Public Library System to it’s fullest. I fact, LAPL has saved me a lot of money! I regularly borrow ebooks and audiobooks digitally and never have to step […]

I’m a serial book hopper… and it works, for the most part

I’m a serial book hopper… and it works, for the most part

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Hello, my name is Ezrah and I am a serial book hopper. I define book hopper as someone who reads multiple books at one time and regularly jumps from one book to the next while not finishing the current book being read. I know, that’s crazy. But for the most part, it works well for me, especially when I am in a book slump.   At this moment, I am currently unable to focus on a specific book and I’m juggling 5 books at the same time. Currently, it’s 4 new books and 2 re-reads. […]

My Go-to Comfort Reads

My Go-to Comfort Reads

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Happy Monday, Wormies! It’s been a while since I wrote a discussion post so when I got sick this weekend, I decided to tackle the subject of comfort reads. See, we all have go-to books that are auto reads when we are feeling down, or sick. In my case, I have a few books that I read when I am sick or when I am depressed.While some people watch movies or binge-watch TV shows, I binge read. These books always get me out of my funk one hundred percent of the time! Aside from talking […]
