I’ve got lots of books to talk about, as I’ve been reading a fair bit lately. Here’s a list of categories tentatively planned out to discuss:
Netgalley-a website where you can download ebooks for free (http://www.netgalley.com)
Email Requests-authors/publishers who ask me to read a PDF book version, sometimes a real book to review (happening a lot more frequently these days)
Books In the Mail-birthday books, publishing company books that are sent to me, borrowed books, etc.
Surprise Books-books that I happen to get unexpectedly when traveling/visiting book stores
Library Rentals-books that I snag from the library
Barnes and Nobles/Bookstores-books from B&B and random other bookstores/book fairs that I go to
Free Amazon Books-I generally pick up Amazon books that I wish to read
I believe that these will have their own pages, once I start getting things settled on this blog. For those of you who are new, please forgive me as I’m changing things around-this blog is almost one year old, and I’m only just now getting around to fixing things up so that it stands out, and looks a lot nicer. I’ve changed the heading, I have a YouTube, and I’m hoping to get its own Twitter account, as well as a Facebook account. It has an email account: email@example.com though I’m thinking of changing that as well so that its just for this website, though my email primarily does mainly bookish themes it has a few other things that I’ve signed onto as well.
Now, there will be times when I’m not on for days/weeks at a time, because I travel and I also don’t have wifi at home. However, the local library has a new thing where I can check out a wifi hotspot for a week at a time. Though signal where I live is very poor indeed (only one bar on my smart phone!), I’m hoping that week will be a lot more posts on books.
Also, I’m thinking of tentatively linking my Wattpad account linked, as well as a few other links on this website as well. Thoughts?
Polar Heat by Simone Beaudelaire (Free Kindle Book)
Dealing With Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede (Re Read Kindle Book)
My Name Is For My Friends-Joe Vasicek (Free Kindle Short Story)
Ocean’s Fire-Stacey L. Tucker (Netgalley Free Kindle Novel)
Once the categories of books that I have made are up and running on this blog, I intend on going back through my blog and linking each review into the appropriate category. I also intend on going to Goodreads and linking each review from Goodreads to my blog. That will take a LOT of time and effort, and frankly I hate the idea of doing it, but am doing it anyway because I want to be more organized with my books, and want my blog to show just how much I read.
Does anyone know how to do badges for WordPress? I’m trying to link that I’m an affiliate of various websites (Netgalley, Goodreads, random blogs) and I can’t figure it out. Some help would be much appreciated!
Well, I think that this is a long enough post for now. Thanks for checking in, and be sure to check back often to see what new changes I’ve made with this blog. Have a great weekend everybody!
