All Around the Web

I’ve seen some roundup type stuff, dome on lot’s of other blogs, and I have been playing around with the idea for a while now and I figured I’d give it ago and see how it does.  Basically, it’s a place where I can share all the items, photo’s,  blog posts and other stuff that I have found fascinating or interesting or sharable from around the great world-wide web (does anyone even call it that anymore? or did I just date myself?).  This week’s round-up is a little small as, I wasn’t sure I was going to post it.  However, I read a lot of blogs, news articles, and spend a fair amount of time just browsing through things on the web. So, I thought that I would share.  It won’t be all about books, I mean sure sometimes it probably will be mostly about books, but I do like other things as well, such as photography and decorating and crafts, and… well you get the idea.  I hope you enjoy these links as much as I did.

 

Over at 101 books  they talk about their  Bookish Pet Peeve , this is number 5 but contains the links to the other’s as well.  I have to say that this one is exactly how I feel when people ask me to borrow books.  Though I tend to just say I’m sorry I don’t loan my books out since I’ve had several bad experiences, it works for the most part, and is true.

 

Over at Buzzfeed.com they have listed 16 books to read before the movie comes out this year.  Out of the 16 I have only read 1 of them, ok I listened to the audio book, Anyway it was  Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn you can see what I thought here.  Apparently though I need to get on it, if I want to keep my Page to Screen segment going.

 

A Russian woman has taken photo’s of her two son’s at their farm and it’s Magical. This is currently making the rounds on Facebook but it’s worth another look even if you’ve already seen it.

 

I found the “Netflix” of books, it’s call Scribd and you can sign up for unlimited rentals of E-books for $8.99 a month

 

Life Time, has done a remake of Flowers in the Attic, let’s hope it’s better than the 1987 version, not sure I’m going to watch it though, the book creeps me out.

Welcome

Hi,

          Thanks for stopping by my book review blog.  Since this is my first post I am going to explain how I am hoping things will work around here. Thus far my plan is to post twice a week, most likely on Tuesday and Friday’s.  Every so often an extra post may pop up if  I have something interesting to share with you.  This is after all a book review blog so, I will be posting reviews of books that I am reading, these could be new releases or old favorites and of every genre (I never met a book I didn’t read).  Truthfully I am not sure where this blog is going but I love books and hope to share that with other book lovers, and improve my writing skills while doing so.  There may be times I post photo’s or quotes of or about books.   One more thing to let you know,  I have 3 reviews ready to go, “The Book Thief”, “The Kingmaker’s Daughter” and “City of Bones” starting Friday they will be going up.  I can’t wait to hopefully hear feedback from those who have or who want to read them.

                                                                                                                                                                                                 See you soon,
