WHAT I’VE LEARNED AFTER 5 YEARS AND 20 BOOKS: 25 LESSONS

This article wasn’t written by me, it was written by Chuck Wendig but I really wanted to share it with all of you because most of you are writers, want to be writers or know writers. So I thought I would share this blog post with all of you to read, learn and enjoy:

15 Romances to Heat Up Your Summer (or Winter)

So once again Penguin Teen has come up with a fantastic list of books to get your days hot and steamy with a list of 15 romance books to enjoy.

http://www.penguinteen.com/summer-romance-books/

I love this list, except for the fact that it has added a couple more books to my tbr pile.

Have you read any of these books? Have you heard of any of these books?

I have heard of a few of these books but I haven’t seen many of them at the shops, which I hope gets rectified, because I want to buy some of these books.

Do you like romance books?

The World’s Most Improbable Libraries

You know how everyone keeps saying that books are dead, that the written word isn’t going to exist in so many years. Well I’ve got something to say to all of you naysayers – go read this and tell me if the art of writing is dying.

If you are like me and absolute love books, libraries and all bookshops around the world even though you always go to your favourite local book shop and hate it when you hear people say that bookshops are a dying breed, well take a few moments and read this interesting article that I found published by the ABC and was written by Alex McClintock.

Look at how some of the societies around the world are keeping books and words in business. How inspiring. I wish there were some cool libraries in Australia that I could visit.

Books aren’t a dying breed.

11 Beautiful and Actually Doable Ways to Display Your Books

Hi guys,

As you all know, I am a big fan of the article that are posted on Buzzfeed. If you didn’t know that, all you have to do is scroll through my blog for a while and you will see plenty of their links that I have shared with you all.

This week I am sharing a post that is, in my opinion actually useful, well it might be for those who aren’t lazy enough to just leave our books around our bedrooms. Anyway here is the article for all of you to read:

https://www.buzzfeed.com/norawhelan/bookshelf-beautification?utm_term=.hgaq22gvDa#.xuPmKKAjNa

I really like number #4 in this article, with the ladder that is used as a wall bookshelf. And number #5 with the fairy lights, which is pretty much already done by some book bloggers, if you check out bookstagram, you will see many examples of this. Same as the book rainbow at number #9 in the article.

So here are some ideas if you are in the mood of renovating or moving some things around this weekend. Enjoy!
