Discussion: Is Bookstagram Really Just Looks Over Substance?

Let's chat. I find that recently there have been a lot of hot takes on the bookstagram community, mostly from people who aren't part of the community and feel like they should have an opinion on everything. There's one from the Vulture (a really long, overtly flowery piece that has no substance) and one from… Continue reading Discussion: Is Bookstagram Really Just Looks Over Substance?

Chit Chats

Chit Chat: Book Collecting, the Unread Shelf and the Eternal TBR

Let's talk first world bookworm problems. I've decided to do another Chit Chat post - it's like a discussion, but with less serious and important topics.

Discussion: How Fandom and Online Communities Changed the Way I Experience Books

It feels like I haven't written a discussion in a while, so here's one. I was talking about a book with my dad a couple of days ago, and it got me thinking. While he and I are both huge readers (and he probably reads more than me, and has read more, obviously), we experience… Continue reading Discussion: How Fandom and Online Communities Changed the Way I Experience Books
