Bookclub Social – guest post

Hi, guys! Today I’ve got something different for you. A kind of request and presentation. There’s this bunch of people who are interested in book clubs and communities that surround them. If you’re willing to help them they will just have a few questions starting with a survey.

Will you help? I did and trust me – it doesn’t hurt ;). And here’s what it’s all about:

Bookclub Social is a research project studying online book club communities to study how members form, communicate, and socialize.  If you are an online book club member, we would appreciate your participation in our survey which should take a few minutes.

We are independent researchers who want to contribute to scholarly research on online communities which we hope to publish as a book. Every precaution is taken to ensure all information is kept confidential. You will be assigned a pseudonym; your name will not be used.

If you are interested in taking our survey, please go to:

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at bookclubsocial2016@gmail.com.

Thank you & Happy reading!

Funny Friday – Pratchett for Children

Another Friday and another occasion to have a laugh. This time, I’ll get back to my childhood reads and to some of the non-Discworld novels by the awesome Terry Pratchett. Since I’ve read these books a long time ago I might not remember too much of them, but I do remember they were funny [well duh! It’s Pratchett!]. And the books I’ve read were borrowed, so no photos of my copies this time, instead I’ll talk about the good and the bad covers :). Yup, I know you all like a bit of love and a bit of hate directed toward the covers of your favorite books.

Carpet PeopleCarpet People

A ridiculous story about little people living in the carpet.

“In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet…”

I remember that I loved how these little people reacted to the surrounding that’s normal for us – a table, shoes, even a hoover. It was both funny and curious, a fantastic read for kids that tickles your imagination and make you hope you haven’t just stepped on someone while walking through your carpet… Continue reading “Funny Friday – Pratchett for Children”

BBC Thursday – 28th of April

Hello again! Today I’ve got only two dramas for you (not for the lack of trying, but I just didn’t find other ones interesting enough).

Today is a day of crime novels. Listening to them all will take only 4, which is not that much if you have something to do with your hands ;P.

1. Condition Purple (P Division #6) – Peter Turnbull

Chief Inspector Donoghue’s men are on the case when the body of a prostitute is found in Blythswood Square, in the heart of Glasgow’s prosperous business quarter.
Published in 1989, this is Peter Turnbull’s sixth P Division novel about his Glaswegian cops.

Top 5 Wednesday – Favorite Mothers/Maternal Figures

imgresWe’ve got this fantastic topic today and I’m so not in a mood for writing. But I want to. So it’s going to be short. As my sentences…

let’s move on…

Halfway deadDead Until DarkLet’s start with two fantastic grandmothers who raised two very interesting females. They did it alone. They did it well. They might’ve stayed in the background, only helping our heroines, teaching them and supporting. But these women wouldn’t be the same without their wonderful grandmothers.
