10 Reasons Dogs Make the Best Reading Buddies

By | Reading Habits, Your Photos | No Comments
Every reading addict knows that the only thing better than a good book is a good book and a dog at your feet! Dogs make the perfect reading companions, not least because they never interrupt, and are often happy to be read aloud to.

Whether you have a little ‘Scrappy Do’, or a big galumphing ‘Hooch’, I’d bet that when you’re reading, he or she is by your side. As you may have guessed I’m a dog lover, I’ve had two dogs for years, and losing one earlier this year was so hard, I found it difficult to read without her. Read More

By | Your Photos | One Comment
I posted a picture a few days ago of a literary tattoo, prompting many of you to share your own creations! So many of you sent in pictures that I put out a shout out for some more and now we have a pretty impressive collection. If you’re thinking of getting a literary tattoo yourself, let these be some inspiration to you!

Just as an aside I don’t have any tattoos myself, although I always promised myself that if I ever became a published author I’d have a semi-colon tattooed on my middle toe. There’s still time, right?

By | Your Photos | One Comment

We’ve seen you on Facebook, now we want to see your Bookface! Yes, I’ve gone a bit mad again, I love your #Shelfies, and it’s your submissions that really make the page, so when Reading Addict, Nathan House showed me the Bookface fun running at his local library, I did what all the great artists do and stole the idea.

I can almost hear you muttering ‘what is she talking about now?’, and so I roped in another of the addicts, Shan Williams to take a picture to explain what I mean. Grab your favourite book, or at least your favourite book with a face on the cover, and send us your Bookface, submissions by email titled Bookface to please.

I’ve based my selections on the amount of likes and interaction on each post, since it’s always almost impossible to pick favourites. Anyway, enough of me talking, let’s see the #Shelfies. Here they are. (I know how you love trying to read the spines, so they’re all shown in full size) :
