Investigated – Blogging Friends

Investigated – Blogging Friends

So for me, school starts on Wednesday. Besides getting new teachers and meeting up with friends, the beginning of the school year also means making new friends.For the past few days, I have spent an alarming amount of time on Twitter. I could have been doing other things like getting ready for school or cleaning my room. I could have been doing something “productive”.

Book recommendations.

That got me thinking… Should I switch and is it worth it?Why Blogger?Right now, this blog is hosted by Blogger. You can tell by the .blopspot. The main reason why it is hosted by Blogger is well, Blogger hosts your blog for free. And I’m on a budget of $0 meaning everything […]

When? and Where?Everyone can reread books anytime, anywhere, but not everyone does… Some people reread books often reread books. Others rarely do. Tend there are the people in […]

Investigated – Rating Books

Investigated – Rating Books

Everyone rates books differently. That much is obvious. Each blogger has a different rating system, a different method for rating books, and, most importantly, different reasons for rating a book a certain way. Rating SystemEvery blog uses a different system to rate blogs. Some blogs use stars, some use hearts, some use other symbols. This blog falls under the third category. Here, I use snowflakes to rate books. Why snowflakes?
