    Are you obsessed with your blog?

    When people hear you have a blog you usually have two different reactions. The first one is “OMG, Good for you trying something new, relevant and interesting to hear about!” and the second is “What are you doing with your life & why are you wasting it blogging?”.

    Why I buy actual books,

    What do I mean in the title you ask? Anti-Kindle. Many people are probably wondering where I get my books I review from. Simple: I either buy them from Amazon or I also borrow them from the local library – if they are in stock! WHY NO KINDLE? I hear you ask. The only inconvenience in this scenario is either waiting for stock or delivery, but if I time it right this isn’t really a problem. Just order, say a week, in advance and you’re sorted. I have to agree, sometimes like today, there are times when you think a kindle would have been helpful – as I could have just clicked…
