Geekdom of Books: Staying Up-to-Date

Thanks to the wonderful pattepoilue I discovered a new wonderful way to keep on track with all the series I read. I already tried Shelfari and LibraryThing and discovered  that I’m more a Goodreads gal myself.
But although I use Goodreads daily I sometimes forgot that a new book in one of loved series came out and I nearly got a stroke when I noticed. So now we have this new site: fictfact.com

What is so great about it?
You can search the database for author, book title or series name and it list all the books in this series, even the soon to be released ones. You can now click on follow this series and fictfact will remind you of the new releases in this series. Sounds easy to me.

Okay I admit it was totally annoying to put all the series I read in there but those 30 minutes …

1st March Shift by Rachel Vincent


Genre:  Urban Fantasy
Being the first female werecat enforcer isn’t easy. Scars accumulate, but I’m stronger in so many ways.

As for my personal life? It’s complicated. Choices worth making always are. Ever since my brother’s death and my father’s impeachment, it’s all I can do to prevent more blood from spilling. Now our Pride is under attack by a flight of vicious thunderbirds. And making peace with our new enemies may be the only way to get the best of our old foe.

With the body count rising and treachery everywhere, my instincts tell me to look before I leap. But sometimes a leap of faith is the only real option…

Geekdom of Books: Bookshelves

The Equation Bookshelf is designed by Marcos Breder and is one of the most stylish geeky things I’ve ever seen. It plays with the mathematical methods of separation and organizes your books with them. You can put the important stuff in the (parentheses) or just sort them in your own system in the [square brackets] and {braces}. I found this one at Designspotter.

And OMG take a look at this one. I so adore it. It’s so funny. I just need a flat-panel TV. LOL But back to the bookshelf:
The Puckman bookcase is made of shining varnished wood. The Colour is yellow to remind you of the famous character of the 80’s classic video-game “Pac-Man”.

Unfortunately it has no prize. You have to request that and I think that is warning enough for my credit card. I found this here and you can visit the website of the designer …

Geekdom of Books: The Greatness that could be Blio

This week we will hopefully get one of the best new inventions in digital reading. The blio eReader will go live this week and I can’t say enough how excited I am about this.

What’s all the fuss about?
Blio is a new free eReader software that makes eBooks more “real”. The books are in full.color and they still have the full layout of the original. All the fonts and the structure is the same. They can also include new digital material like videos or interactive questionnaires. Sound a bit like Vook but in reality it seems to be so much more.

You ask yourself why this is great news?
Okay it won’t make such a difference for your everyday reading but it opens the digital reading world to other genres or formats. Think about books for children with all these colorful pictures in it. Blio has an integrated reading aloud feature that will always …
