Best Books of the Decade

Hey all, Dani here. I've seen a lot of blog posts and YouTube videos of people talking about their favorite books of the past decade (2010-2019), and it seemed like a fun idea, so why not do a post about so of my favorite books from the last decade. The problem was figuring out how… Continue reading Best Books of the Decade

Discussion: Book Censorship

Hey all, Dani here. I feel like I'm stuck in a cycle of late nights and very long and busy days. So yesterday Damian and I worked our usual 10 hour shift, went home and finished packing, drove three hours to Cincinnati, and then ended up working on booth setup at Cincinnati Comic Expo for… Continue reading Discussion: Book Censorship

Weekend Writer: Beginnings and Endings, or Chapter Three of Wonderbook by Jeff Vandermeer

Hey all, Dani here. I didn't realize what I was getting myself into by doing my Weekend Writer posts this way. For those first couple of chapters it was like 30-40 pages, so not that much material to cover. Well, hello chapter three, thank you for changing all of that for me. Yes, this chapter… Continue reading Weekend Writer: Beginnings and Endings, or Chapter Three of Wonderbook by Jeff Vandermeer

Discussion: Book Buying Habits

Hey all, Dani here. Let's spend today talking about buying books, because well...I've had book buying stuck in my mind for a little while now, so it seems like an appropriate topic. Also, everywhere I turn online I'm being reminded of the current and upcoming sales at places like Barnes & Noble. For example, right… Continue reading Discussion: Book Buying Habits
