It's Been a Hard Day's Night // BOOK BLOGGER HOP (April 26-May 2)



About the Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, I relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.
Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week's question submitted by Billy @ CoffeeAddictedWriter:
At the end of a hard day, how do you get yourself psyched about writing a book review?

A Guide to buying optimal number of books // Bookending Spring 2019 DAY 3


Created by Sam @ FictionallySam and Clo @ BookDragons, this event is about bringing the whole book blogging community together, under the umbrella term, "Bookend Events". 

Today's prompt is hosted by Jayati @ It’s Just A Coffee Addicted Bibliophile this is her last day of hosting the event. A Guide to buying optimal number of books: Share some tips on how you can resist the urge to buy new shiny books by using your TBR as a motivation and  how you choose what new books to buy, when to buy them, etc.

Since I don't necessarily buy books, I mostly order from subscription services like Scribd, Overdrive, and sometimes my library, I don't have this problem. But even for borrowing books, I have to be mindful of how many books I can read at once. I mostly can read up to 2-3 books at once, not including my disastrous Goodreads TBR, which has over 10 books I'm supposedly in the middle of. 

But as for tips, I would say:

  • Keep in mind of how many books you have already.
  • Keep in mind of books you're reading already.
  • Ask yourself: if this book were to disappear tomorrow, would I survive it? If no, buy/borrow it. If yes, you can live without it. 
  • Keep track of borrowing/buying deadlines. Especially for subscription services like Scribd and Overdrive, for they give deadlines for how long you can have the specific book. If your deadline is coming up, and you have nothing to read, it should be ok to treat yo'self!!
