Create a Spell with Author Suzanne McLeod + Contest


Today is the first day of our Author takeover! We start our Blogoversary celebration with Author Suzanne McLeod who will make you work hard to win one of her books in the Spellcracker series! Have you ever dreamed of creating a useful Spell? Today is your chance. Everything’s possible, your imagination’s the limit 😉 Welcome Suzanne!

Yay! Congratulations to the Book Lovers on their blogoversary. And thank you to them for inviting me back to help celebrate! It’s great to be here 🙂

So, the Book Lovers told me that this would be an easy gig, and that instead of them asking me questions, or me doing a blog post, that this time they wanted me to make them do all the work (she says, typing frantically away! Yep, I fell for that one, didn’t I? *g*). But, after wracking my …

Our Blogoversary Party starts: Authors’ Takeover + Big Giveaway


The first thing we have to say is *please cover your ears* 
SQUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

Can you believe it already has been a year? We can’t really.

So what better chance for me as the Geeky Lover to talk numbers. *Muahahhaha* This year practically flew by but in retrospective we achieved a lot. We published a total of 719 posts, with 226 of them being reviews. OMG I would have never thought it would be that much but yay! We also had some authors over at here and 82 of them were tortured by our, sometimes not so easy, questions (but believe me some of them got their revenge *big sigh*). Another 42 guestposts complete the list of people we will be always thankful for. But not only the authors made this possible. We found 678 kindred spirits and yes all of our readers deserve the …

Around the Bookish World: News Week-in-Review

Nora Roberts has joined the Million copies sold on Kindle club and joins the ranks with Stieg Larrson and James Patterson. The Bookseller reports that she has sold more than 1,170,539 Kindle books under her Nora Roberts and J.D Robb pseudonym! Way to go Nora! 

According to Price Waterhouse in the UK, they have predicted that the UK ebook market growth will increase ten-fold during the next five years. However there is a caveat warning stating in their report that that growth will be sluggish compared to their US counterparts who are more open to the digital format whilst the the UK publishers are reluctant in embracing this new market. Personally I think with agency pricing emerging in both the US and the UK, I doubt that point is right but I do think that non agency publishers will …

Bookish Rants or Raves: Getting Organized!


Ok so, a while back I talked about Bookish OCD, now I want to talk about keeping yourself organized when it comes to writing down the books you’ve read, need to read, review, etc…

I’ve found myself trying to be organized more and more. Last year I started keeping a spreadsheet of the books I read through 2010 and even though I stopped adding to it about halfway through the year, I did catch up in the end.

This year I started a 2011 spreadsheet and I’m actually adding the books I need to read for review and the order I plan to read them. I’m hoping to be more organized this year than I was in 2010 and stick with it. Goodreads and LibraryThing have both been amazing in helping me keep track of my books as well as FictFact, …

@Susi_Sunshine Happy Birthday you Crazy Geeky Lover!

Today we are celebrating our fantastic Geeky Lover’s Birthday!! YAY Susi is turning…20 (we agreed on 20 right? lol) .  If you don’t know it already Susi (@Susi_Sunshine) is a twitter addict *hides from the rock throwing*, by that I mean that she’s often on twitter (for my very pleasure) but also that she loves to torture authors by adding a Twitter Style question in their interviews. *g*  So I thought it would be great to keep torturing people by asking her friends for Twitter Style birthday wishes. *yes I’m evil*.

Happy Birthday Susi!!
