Charity Shops: Tips and Tricks for Book Shopping

Charity Shops: Tips and Tricks for Book Shopping

So as someone who loves books and doesn’t have much money; charity shops are my saviour. I use the library too but sometimes you’ll find things in a charity shop that you can’t get in the library and you can also wind up getting a whole series for cheap.

I know that Becca from Becca and the Books on YouTube has done a video showing how many books you can get from a charity shop for £15. I’ve never quite been able to spend quite that much in charity shops as I’ve never found that many books I want at once. But there’s something so pleasing about the thought of getting so many books for so little if I so wanted.

Just Keep Writing – My Nanowrimo Declaration

Just Keep Writing – My Nanowrimo Declaration

Nanowrimo is just around the corner and I’m going to get my butt into gear and win it!

You might know that I started a novel – YA Irish fairy tale retelling – earlier this year but it quickly fizzled out. I still love the idea but I don’t have the inspiration. So for a few months this has been an excuse for my lazy self not to write much of anything other than the odd short fanfic.

Fierce Fantasy at Waterstones Norwich

So, apparently, the coding course I’ve started completely scuppered any and all plans I had to get back into writing and blogging and the like in June.

My Goals

I’ve been so terrible with this blog and I know it.

It’s not how I want to be running this blog but things happen and I lose steam easily. But I’m going to change that and I’m posting about it now so I can be held accountable.

From Monday onwards I will need to be writing a minimum of two blog posts a week – one book review and one other post.

I need to get back into my novel writing as well but I’ll post about that another time…

So I hope you’ll all stay with me and enjoy what new content I provide!

And please remember that responses will just encourage me to write more 😉

A Fresh Start

So, this isn’t my first book blog. I actually had one under the same name on Blogger. But WordPress looks like the place to be and since I felt like I needed a fresh start to get my butt into gear…where better to move?

I’m honestly not sure what else to say but I’ll try and keep this more up to date than my other blog was!
