Sharing Saturday: How to find free books

As a companion to my Finding Free Ebooks SS a few weeks ago I was asked to list a version for paperback books. As I’m from the UK I primarily only have experience with sites and places that UK friendly, but some of these do cross over for international readers as well 🙂   Finding Books Online Bookmooch One of my favourite places to get books, Bookmooch works on a points system. Every time you add a book to your trading list or trade a book, you earn points. You then use these points to ‘buy’ books from others. This is an international site soRead More →

Sharing Saturday: How to find free ebooks online

I am a massive bookworm and as I’ve just started a book challenge on instagram I figured it was a good time to pass on my knowledge of free ebooks. My fiancĂ© was extremely happy when I got a kindle because it meant that he didn’t have to fit a bunch of books into our luggage every time we travelled. I read a lot when I’m on holiday. Anyway, I can’t spend as much as I’d like on books so I am always looking for free books whether they’re from my local libraries (yes I’m a library student, but I’m not paid to say thatRead More →

Sharing Saturday: Geek on the High Street

Ok, so technically it’s Sunday (and quite late on a Sunday at that). This week has been tough, and I had to skip last weeks SS so I refused to skip a second one. Geek on the High Street is an idea I had last year and considered creating a blog around, instead it will make a regular appearance as a Sharing Saturday. I had hoped to go out and actually browse shops, but sadly health hasn’t allowed for that so I’ve had to look online. The aim of Geek on the High Street is to find and highlight geeky products that can be foundRead More →

Sharing Saturday: Noteworthy notebooks

I love notebooks and I’m always on the look out for pretty and unique ones. So here is a selection taken from my pinterest board Noteworthy Notebooks.   From left to right starting with the first row: 1 – Filigree Journals from Gaelsong – Slightly more expensive than most of the notebooks on this list but I couldn’t resist including them. They’re just so beautiful and elegant. 2 – OWL Journal  from susie ghahremani – I love this hand painted journal that continues inside the journal, making it cute inside and out. 3 – Leather rose notebook from GILDBookbinders –  The most expensive notebook onRead More →

Sharing Saturday: my favourite fantasy books

It was World Book Day on Thursday so it seems fitting for this weeks Sharing Saturday to be about books! A while ago Lianne asked for suggestions for fantasy novels and that got me thinking about my favourite ones. So here you go!   Song of the Lioness Quartet – Tamora Pierce This is the first book set in the land of Tortall and is followed by two other quartets, a duology, a prequel trilogy and a short stories anthology. I absolutely love these books even though they are written for a younger audience and I’ve lost count of the times I’ve re-read them. TheRead More →
