Stacking The Shelves {1}


Stacking the Shelves

Hellllooooo everyone! Today I came across a feature called Stacking The Shelves on Tynga’s Reviews.  (Go check them out on that blog!) Essentially, this is a weekly post where all of us booklovers can share our hauls – whether it be physical books, e-books or library books. I thought this was a great idea because as much as I would love to read all of my new books, it might take a while to get to them. With this feature, I can rave all about these books and share my excitement! Sidenote: Now, this blog is run only by myself at the moment so, I might not have one every week, but once I’ve accumulated enough to make a blog post on, I will!

How Many Books is ‘Too Many’?


a lot of books

Hello there, everyone. Today on this lovely winter day, (I’m just kidding, I don’t particularly like the cold, especially below freezing weather) I realized how many books on my bookshelf I have yet to read. In 2012, I managed to read 41 of them which, considering there are 52 weeks in a year, was essentially like reading 1.2 books a week. ***snaps and claps*** However, I wished I had read more, especially during the summer, because NOW there are so many more books that I want/need coming out. I really cannot stop myself from buying a book or two (or five) every time I’m at a bookstore, which is at least a couple of times a month. But in my defence, they’re bargain books sometimes so…

Iv’e always wanted to challenge for myself to only read the books I have on my shelf and once those were all read, I could buy more. After thinking for a while I realized there may be some problems with that….

eReaders vs. Print Books: Which Do You Prefer?


Hey!CoveringAllCovers here with a random post! 

Okay, so this topic, I find, comes with many different opinions from everyone; eReaders compared to books. To be honest, I have both and enjoy both for their own reasons, but I don’t think I’ll ever be able to buy books that I really care about and think will be my favourites on my Kobo. Don’t get me wrong I think they’re amazing devices for their compatibility and user-friendly interfaces, but I love the idea of having a huge library of all my books and I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way. When ebooks and ereaders first began to become popular I thought the idea was cool but, never said, “I’m going to buy one” right away. I was definitely hesitant because after being an avid reader for such a long time, you become attached to the feeling of having the books in your hand and watching your library grow overtime. 

Although all this is true, when we compare the differences and think about the advantages, you give in right away (or at least I did)  Continue reading

Don’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover..Or Do?


Hey Book Lovers!

CoveringAllCovers here to talk about books that we should judge by their covers! When at a bookstore, the first thing we notice about a novel that we are possibly going to buy is it’s cover page – we all do it! And that’s okay because today I’m going to point out a couple of books I purchased or didn’t purchase because of the cover! Here they are!
