On the blog: Breaking Down Book Photography
Not everyone understands book photography. Some question why anyone would even bother taking photos of books. I decided to try and reconcile photography with books. After all, taking photos of all sorts of things that matter to us isn’t all that strange.

It’s way past midnight and the battle between reading and sleeping is all too real. Neither is willing to concede.

Stay strong, my friend! We’re rooting for you!

Thank you for the support, dear friend :) It is much appreciated! Be prepared for nightly battles ;)

The best thing about being a book nerd online? Making new (bookish) friends! Each month I like to highlight some of the friends I’ve made by sharing information about them and drawing a (horrendous) picture of them. If you’re looking for new book lovers to be friends with, you should check it out!

This week I’m featuring wordrevelforbooksandcake, and Sandra. Head over to Oh, the Books! to find out more about them!

In case anyone’s looking to discover more book blogs/bloggers or is curious to learn a few things about me.

Over the past week I rearranged my English fiction books in four of the pigeon holes of my IKEA Expedit bookcase, so they’re colour-coordinated. I’m very pleased with how things turned out :)

How is Conversion realistic fiction??? It’s about witches??????????????????????????????????????????

cause witches are totally real, or maybe this is from a bookstore in salem? 


I’ve not read Conversion yet but I laughed so hard at the comments! I’ll have to judge for myself how much I’ll need to stretch my imagination for it to be remotely realistic. Maybe the historical part of it threw them off when categorising Conversion.

do people actually follow your book blog? Not to sound rude or anything, I'm trying to start a book blog and I want to know if tumblr is the right place to start it.

Hi Anon,

Yes, people do follow my book blog. Though to be clear, I use Tumblr as a secondary platform. My main book blog is self-hosted and I use Wordpress for it.

Whether or not Tumblr is the “right” place to start it, depends on what you aim to get out of it. For me, I wanted a place to organise my book reviews, so I chose Wordpress because I feel it allows for better organisation. Plus, I can be as wordy with my posts as I want without clogging up anyone’s dashboard. I also like that on Wordpress and Blogger, blog readers are very much encouraged to leave comments.

Tumblr, to me, is very well-suited for images and shorter text posts. Of course, you can write wordier stuff and hope that some people will read but I’m not sure how many really do that when leisurely scrolling through their Tumblr dashboard. What I like about Tumblr is the reblogging option. Content is easily shared across the board, which makes things you post much more dynamic with the potential to reach a much wider audience.

Bottom line, I say choose the platform you think will be best suited for your content. Whatever you do, blog for yourself first. Don’t start a blog with the purpose of gaining followers because you’ll tire of blogging and become unmotivated when you don’t gain followers as quickly as you wish.

Also, I believe in quality over quantity when it comes to followers. I blog to share the love of books. So when followers respond with the same enthusiasm and talk to me about books, I get very excited. Sometimes it even leads to a new friendship. I think these things are what make book blogging so much more successful and rewarding than a follower count.
