Book spine poetry is always so much fun to do. Naturally, I was stoked that it’s been included as a challenge again this year. To see more poems, be sure to visit all the blogs linked up on Alexa’s post. Be sure to visit Alexa’s lovely co-hosts too who together made this year’s Love-A-Thon possible: Mel from The Daily Prophecy, Hazel from Stay Bookish and Cee from The Novel Hermit.
After watching Bout of Books pass me by so many times over the past two years, I have finally decided to join! I figured it’d help me build up my momentum as the new year starts. There are so many books on my shelves that I have yet to read. I want to gobble them up and fly through but sometimes I lack motivation or get distracted. Since read-a-thons help me focus, Bout of Books it is.
This was the first time that I joined the Broke & Bookish Secret Santa gift exchange. During the previous two years I just observed this annual event from afar (read, Twitter). Then when Jamie tweeted this year just before sign ups closed that there were 30 minutes left, I hastily plunged into it. I’m very glad I did because I discovered two amazing people as a result.
