What Does the Bookworm Say?: Balance

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Balance

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is balance – how do you balance blogging and everyday life? Time is one of our greatest commodities. There never seems to be enough of it and I often find myself wishing for a time-tuner a la Harry Potter. Unfortunately I cannot change time (and let’s face it, I am sure I’d mess up the time continuum if I did) so I have to balance my… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Favorite Series

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is favorite book series! I am going to keep today’s post to the point, with no pics or links. I totally forgot that a post was supposed to go up this week so I am busting this out the night before. I have a busy weekend ahead, with Long Beach Comic Con and an outdoor screening of Beetlejuice. As you may have noticed, I am a… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say? Hobbies

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is hobbies! What hobbies do you enjoy? Wait – you mean I don’t spend all my free time reading? As nice as that sounds, I do have other interests and hobbies that I partake in. It might be strange but I’ve never considered reading a “hobby.” For me, it’s something that I just do and that is a part of my every day life. I think of… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Re-reading Books

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Re-reading Books

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is re-reading books – do you re-read your favorites? If so, why and what are they? Do they change every time you read them? Do I re-read books? Yes, I do, but not very often. Since I started blogging a few years ago, I haven’t had a lot of time to re-read books. There’s a lot of pressure in book blogging to read the newest thing… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Music

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is music. Do you listen to it while reading or do you prefer silence? If you listen to music while reading, bonus points for sharing your current playlist. My answer is going to be short and boring. I don’t really listen to music when I read. I find music too distracting when I read. However, that does not mean that I read in silence. I am a big… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Social Media

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is social media. What are your thoughts on social media?  Do you need it/like it etc? As a blogger, I consider my blog a type of social media. I use it to connect with other people who have similar interests as me. However, I don’t want to just blog into the ether. I want to make sure that my blog reaches as many people as… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Trailers

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Trailers

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is book trailers. Love ’em, hate ’em or don’t care either way. I have mixed feeling about book trailers. I like the idea of them but, in reality, they don’t really do much for me. I find a lot of them to be pretty cheesy with bad special effects and bad acting. I tend to like the ones without actors… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Bookshelf Tour

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is a bookshelf tour. I am going to give you a little peek into my bookshelves. Below is the view of most of my book storage, housed in my living room. I moved about two years ago into a much smaller apartment and struggled with how to fit all of my books into my new place. I also agonized on… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Blogging Burnout

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Blogging Burnout

Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is about blogging burnout – do you ever feel it and, if so, how do you get yourself out of it? Burnout. This is something that probably every blogger has to deal with during their time as a blogger. Most of us don’t have the luxury of having unlimited time to blog and have to fit it in between work, family, friends, hobbies and, of course, reading. If you’ve… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Budgeting

What Does the Bookworm Say?: Book Budgeting

  Hi and welcome to a new feature here on Nite Lite called What Does the Bookworm Say? that I am doing with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. This week’s topic is about budgeting. Do you have a book budget and/or describe your book buying habits.  I think it’s pretty funny that I thought of this topic because, really, I am terrible at book budgeting or any kind of budgeting. Like most avid readers, I have a pretty bad book buying habit. It’s really hard to resist a pretty new book when I see it in the store or on… Read more »
