2018 is upon us and with the new year, I’m sure many of you made resolutions. For bibliophiles, this could mean reading a specific number of books, reading more diversely or exploring new genres. Beyond reading, some of you might want to pick up a new hobby or deepen your expertise in one. The Willoughby Book Club is a book subscription that can help you achieve those goals.
Last year I had the pleasure of being selected as a brand ambassador for Mini Backdrops. Over four months have passed since I received my choice of designs, so my three-month stint is already up. Still, I like them so much, I want to share some of the benefits I particularly have come to appreciate about Mini Backdrops.
When I buy books, I tend to be quite specific about the editions I choose. I compare the various cover designs, then pick the ones I like best. The largest obstacle to obtaining my preferred book editions is when they go out-of-print. In those cases, buying them second-hand is the only option. That’s why I recently decided to order via AbeBooks.
Last week I discovered this simple but magnificent iOS app called Leio. Leio is a reading tracker. Much like a fitness tracker, it has a timer, computes speed and allows you to set goals — except, the focus is on reading.
