Hi Book Nerds,
So the Dewey’s 24hr Read-a-thon is on again on Saturday the 21st of October and I have decided to join in. I think that this is my 3rd Dewey’s read-a-thon and I really enjoy them as I love that it is a short read-a-thon and I can just set aside one day to read instead of feeling bad about not reading a lot consistently through the week as life gets in the way. The only downside to the read-s-thon is that in Melb, Australia it starts at 11pm so I don’t think I will be getting to much reading at the start of the 24hrs.
So the plan….
I will be finishing An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir as I am halfway through and loving it.
Then I might pick up a few comic TPBs as I have quite a few on my shelf that I have been meaning to get to and comics and graphic novels are perfect for read-a-thons.
I am hoping to finish at least 3 books in the 24hr period. I don’t want to try and pack in too much as things always come up and I can only read for so long before my eyes need a break and my coffee cup need filling.
I will be on Twitter and Instagram during the 24hrs and I hope that many of you will also be participating.
Until next time.
So I have been thinking about doing this blog for awhile now and lets be honest I have been sitting on my hands about starting. See… I started off by using blogger but that site really doesn’t work for what I have in mind for this blog, so I kind of paused my blog for awhile and then I remembered Word Press. I don’t know why I forgot about the site but I am hoping that it allows me to do what I want with this blog.
So lets get into my ideas of where I want this blog/website to go..
Basically this is going to be my place to talk about and review comics and books. See my issue is that I love reading and I didn’t want to do a blog only focusing on comics or only focusing on books, but I still wanted something that would allow me to separate the two. So basically I will have one page with comic reviews and another that has my books.
The other thing I want to make anyone reading this aware of is that I have really only just gotten back into reading comics. I read them as a kid but really I am writing this blog as a newbie stepping into the world of comics (well I will be focusing on the trades). I hope that as I explore the world of comics I am able to recommend good jumping on points as that is something that I always worry about with comics. I guess it’s a little because of my OCD but I would love to be able to go back to the start and read every comic book and maybe in the future I can explore the extensive back list of comics out there.
I guess that is enough for now and hopefully I will have my first review up soon.
