The question is—should I read our should I sleep?

I just borrowed a book in Norwegian. Time will tell if I actually manage to read it and understand it or not, but I should be able to guess what most things mean. And the things I can’t guess myself to, well, that’s what the internet is for, is it not?

Making preparations for a book blog I hope to start one day. At some point. Before I die. Possibly.

Frolicking in the autumn leaves, this little lion cub is having the time of her life as she excitedly plays in her enclosure.

Tiny cub Karis proved she’s not too dissimilar to human children as she threw herself into the pile of golden leaves carefully collected by her keepers, even ending up with a pile on her head.

Staff at the Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling, Scotland, had been raking up the leaves to keep the attraction tidy, when Karis’s keeper Brian Reid realised that his little charge might enjoy playing in them and moved the pile into her enclosure.

superbooked:

Hey, everyone, I just reached 1,000 followers, and this is my very special thank you to each of you for well, a lot of reasons that would take me a while to list. Let’s just say, it feels nice to be included in something that means something to you even if it’s “just books”. So, for the rest of the year, this will be my main giveaway. There will be no more big ones like this for the rest of the year.

Above is the “Barnes and Noble Leatherbound Boxset” (I know a lot of people fancy these editions) which includes:

  • The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
  • Jane Erye by Charlotte Bronte
  • Dracula by Bram Stoker
  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

Now, the rules for this giveaway are as follows:

  • You must be following me.
  • If you win, you must be willing to give me your address. I will not share it with anyone, and I will not save it. It will be strictly for shipping purposes only.
  • If you live on Earth, you may enter. It’s w-w-w-worldwide.
  • No, you DO NOT have to pay for shipping.
  • You may like and reblog as many times as you want.
  • And hey, if you’re really desperate for that extra entry, you can follow me on twitter (you don’t have to at all). My twitter is @__aprilreads.
  • This giveaway will end on December 31, 2013 and the ONE winner will be chosen by a random number generator. 

Good luck, and thank you so much for everything!

BLOODY BRILLIANT BOOKS CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY

It’s been a while since I hosted a giveaway and as I’ve just passed a blog milestone I felt it was time for another thank you to you guys for sticking with me. I really appreciate the support you guys give me with my reviews and writing and I feel really lucky to have you. You guys are always sending me kind words and contributing to my stuff and I’m really noticing now how thank full I am of you guys as I’ve had so much time away from my blog recently. This time around I have selected 10 of my favourite books from 2013 as it’s been such a wild year for me and these books have all given me something special. I will be giving away one paperback copy to the winner of this competition and an ebook copy to a runner up.

I have chosen these books carefully using a mix of a few different genres to hopefully satisfy every reader. I’m hoping that this list can also be used as a recommendation list for those who do not win, as they are all perfect for general reading. I have chosen 10 books and next to them I have linked both the goodreads page and a link to my review for those of you more interested.

BAD SHELTER

I don’t even know what killed it :<

I think this game is making me a tad bit too stressed. I reckon I’d be a pretty bad badger mum…
