But before that we have to stalk them to see if they are actually writing or having fun…so we stalk them on every social media platform.

TBR Lists in different places.

Hey Hoomans,

I have got books, i have got books….different Tbr lists, tbr lists ( A little parody of Area codes by Ludacris ft Natedog).

Once upon a time i thought Good reads was enough for me to organize my books, that way i would be able to keep tabs on all the books i want to read and finish them all. Looking back i can say…..it was only just a dream!! I have now increased my list by 2000% and i have new places for ”stalking new books”.

I really don’t know when this got out of hand, it just happened.

Now i am over here sinking under a pile on TBR lists i don’t know if i will ever finish in this lifetime.

Scribd

One day i read a post on Ebook friendly and i discovered Scribd. THE END,  Okay not really. But what happened was i discovered Scribd gave me books, magazines, audio books and sheet music (well i don’t need that one yet) for the whooping price of $8.99 per month. Of course i was like SIGN ME THE FUCK UP

I tried out the thirty-days free trial and i was hooked, i ended up getting a one year subscription.  So in true book reader fashion i then proceeded add as many books as possible to my TBR list and its still growing. Fun fact i used to pronounce it as scri-beed, pray for me y’all.

Pinterest.

Yo! My pinterest book board is out of control. I don’t know when this started but dear lordt it’s too much. Now sometimes my other TBR lists intersect with this one, so when i read a book on one of them its crossing out across all boards. And i till keep adding

Can’t stop won’t stop

Kindle

From ”Oooh that looks good” to one click buys to kindle Unlimited my kindle TBR list has grown wings and has turned into Pegasus about to take off ( hey Pegasus in transit). I feel like i need a special team to take care of this list. I know who i will call.

Kobo

You know what got me with this one..its the super points, i mean a reward scheme for when i buy books hell yeah!! I joined the V.I.P Kobo super points last year and i got hooked. Just yesterday i bought five books received a free book and as at writing this i was just browsing for a new tittle. I know, I know i need help. I love that i can make quotes from the book you are reading with a nice background. I am currently reading a Vegan Cookbook for beginners on Kobo can’t wait to try out some recipes.

Added bonus on the app is that it has awards and stats under reading activity so you can track your reading habits.

Audible.

I have a lot of audio books i need to listen to. I currently have 52 ( well soon to be 55 after this post) and i have finished 14. Well i will be listening to more books so fingers crossed i can at least finish half of  this list this year.

This also has awards, you unlock badges and listening levels as you listen to books. Right now i am on the Pro level and i 111 hours to unlock the scholar level (phew wish me luck)

So i guess you guys have seen how much my TBR lists are out of control, i clearly need help. But you know what, its a good thing to have. Since i have different books on all platforms, i always have something to read and as a back up to these apps i also carry a book just in case my battery decides to go bye bye.

How many reading apps do you have, and do you have different books on them. Let me know in the comments section what reading apps you use?

Discussion: The ‘Bookstagram’

Hey hoomans,

Today’s post is sponsored by dilemma because who the hell is sure of anything these days.

I follow a couple of  bookstragrammers on Le Instagram. And here’s what i have decided to define bookstagram as

Bookstagram: the shit you will not be able to do if you don’t have a thing for photography

Bookstgram: Taking pictures of books and sharing them on Instagram for the purpose of adverstivement or as a form of plogging( so its a made up term picture blogging ).

Bookstagrammers have their aesthetics game on a lock down. There is a particular theme their post follow and if they want to change they introduce a theme divider ( i hate that shit it just fills up your feed with blank pictures sometimes).

And to be honest, we love it. We love the way these pictures are beautifully taken, it makes us want to read more, buy more bookish related items and maybe even start a book business.

Now i am going to be upfront and tell you this:

I SUCK AT THIS. 

If you go on my Instagram feed you will see my many failed attempts and most of the times i fail so hard i just post quotes.  I have tried and deleted a lot of my posts ( and many failed accounts)  and i came up to the conclusion that i have no desire whatsoever to  learn photography, heck i hardly take pics of myself. I tried signing up for a photography class and i slept through it.

Eventually i would get back to this but if i am honest not this year. This year i want to focus on writing , something i enjoy. If i am going to learn about aesthetics it would be on my blog ( i know i said something about no aesthetics here but i am eager to learn for the sake of writing).

For now my Instagram is used to stalk authors

That being said so any of you guys have a bookstgram account  if so drop it in the comments and tell me why you like it.

Have a rainbow filled day,
