Investigated – What’s the Best E-reader?

Investigated – What’s the Best E-reader?

Nowadays e-readers are really popular as ebooks are well… popular. But there’s a lot of different kinds. Which one is the best? Nook I think Nook is my favorite e-reader. Note, it is the only I have ever personally owned so I might be a bit biased. It’s just so annoyingly convenient. And I say annoyingly because I can read and buy books anytime and practically read them on any device. It’s a lot easier than doing homework which is problem if I want to […]

3 Ways to Survive a Winter Storm

3 Ways to Survive a Winter Storm

If you live somewhere in the Northeast of the United States, you probably have an idea what this post is about. For those of you that don’t, we’ve been hit by Winter Storm Juno, which means tons of snow (enough for a snow day). (On a side note, what did Zeus, or should I say Jupiter, do to piss off Hera, or should I say Juno, enough to collaborate with Khione to cause a huge snow storm?) Anyways, while we wait for the Roman (and/or […]

6 Types of Annoying Characters

6 Types of Annoying Characters

Annoying characters are well… annoying. They make you want to bang your head against something. They make you want to grab them by the shoulders and yell “STOP BEING SUCH A STUPID BUTT!” as loudly as you can in their ears. And worse of all, they sometimes make you want to throw the book they are apart of into a wall (or into a fire pit). I can’t stand books with annoying characters, especially if the character I find so irritating is an “important” character […]

I found a lot of my favorite books through Goodreads, for example, If I […]
