Weekly Search: The Kobo Mini

This week’s Weekly Search feature focuses on the newly released Kobo Mini. I bought one back in October and reviewed it here. Shortly thereafter, I kicked myself for not waiting a few weeks, because Chapters knocked $30 off the price tag before Christmas. Bummer, eh? If you can wait for another bargain to come around, …

In My Mailbox (23) and Weekly Search

It’s been a very quiet week around the blog. I started a new job on Monday, so my focus has been on getting settled there. I haven’t been able to devote much time to reading, hence the lack of reviews. Hopefully in the coming weeks I’ll get back into the swing of things and will …

This week I borrowed one book that I’ve been really looking forward to: I am Forbidden by Anouk Markovits. You can read my review here. I also requested two titles from NetGalley, looking ahead to Fall. Borrowed: Sweeping from the Central European countryside just before World War II to Paris to contemporary Williamsburg, Brooklyn, I Am Forbiddenbrings to …

This week I bought one book: Temptation by Karen Ann Hopkins. I tried to get on the tour for this book because it sounded awesome, but I didn’t “make the team.” I picked up a copy when I was in the bookstore earlier this week. Read the review here.  Your heart misleads you.  That’s what my friends …

I wasn’t planning on getting any new books this week, since my goal is to make a dent in the ones I already have, but a few opportunities fell into my lap. From the Publisher: “What do you imagine when you hear the name” . . . Bradbury? You might see rockets to Mars. Or …

This week I borrowed yet another audiobook from the library. I’ve heard good things about The Book of Blood and Shadow. So far I’ve only listened to the first chapter so I’m not deeply invested in the story yet, but hopefully it’ll take off. It was like a nightmare, but there was no waking up. …

This post is going to cover the last two weeks, because I’ve been without internet and haven’t been able to post as regularly as I would like (that will change, promise). Here’s what landed in my mailbox this week: Bought: I started reading this one last night and I’m already highly impressed with the concept …

I borrowed one audiobook from the library this week, Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. Right now I’m listening to her other book, Anna and the French Kiss, and will move on to Lola once I’ve finished with that. Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn’t believe in fashion . . . she believes in costume. The more expressive the …

[11 am] So apparently autosave failed this morning and I lost the bit I typed under the IMM logo. It’s just as well, since I didn’t acquire any new books this week. I’m in the process of getting rid of books, so buying anything else would be a bad idea.   Weekly Search is a …
