Anonymous asked: Thank you so much for your help! I'm probably ending up buying one of the paperwhites because I don't live in the US and you can't download apps or watch movies and blah blah blah outside of the US, but that's okay because I have an iPhone and we already got an iPad in the family. Yeah okay I ended up talking a lot, I just wanted to tell you and all your helpful followers that...
Characters With Eyeglasses
ghostflowerdreams: I came across a writer wanting advice when it comes to characters that wear glasses. They want to be realistic and write a main character that actually needs them and isn’t just wearing glasses because they’re a “nerd” or to make them look “smart”. So I’m writing this to help answer their question, since I do wear glasses and I know the great and not so great things about...
inquisitivebibliophile asked: I got a Kindle keyboard as a x-mas gift a few years ago. I LOVE it, but I never would have bought it for myself ($135 is a lot of $ to me!); I think if the anon doesn't have any other devices compatible with an ebook app (tablet/iPad) and they think they'd get a lot of use out of it, go for it! I <3 my Kindle, but beware that even though it's supposed to hold about 3,000 books,...
Anonymous asked: Hey! I'm considering buying an e-book reader and I wonder which one you got? Do you like it and how much do you use it(for)? I don't know if I should spend some extra money and get a Kindle Fire - you know - a tablet or just one of those "paperwhites"? (btw I loooove your blog)

rommykins asked: Hello there, I was wondering if I could possibly be Guenever from The Once and Future King in your book family? If she's been taken since you last updated the list, my back up characters are Jena from Wildwood Dancing, Queezle from the Bartimaeus Trilogy, and Catelyn Stark from A Song of Ice and Fire. (It was so hard to choose between them all!) Thank you for your time, and I love your blog....

And I’m also like 6stronghands because I take my Kindle and a book with me wherever I go so you’re not the only one! abatwa replied to your post: My book confession: until I got my Nook, I’d… I always take a book with me and even when I know I won’t...
6stronghands asked: My book confession: until I got my Nook, I'd always carry at least two books in my purse. My second confession: I still carry a paper book, along with my Nook at all times. I've tried to stop, because I do indeed realize this is not normal behavior, but I feel better when I've got books, not book (like I'm a Prepper for the Bookapocalypse or something).

How do I just start writing this damn scene...
whydoiwriteanyway: Okay, so I’ve been struggling to rewrite the opening of one of my older novels for a year now. And that’s not hyperbole. It’s a common problem, too: sometimes there are entirely necessary parts of stories that we find ourselves unable to write. Here are a few of the finally-fed-up-measures I’ve been using to get this thing underway: Toss the chronological timeline out the...

Published first in a french book of the same title in the 19th century, this list has been of a massive aid to writers ever since. Written by french writer Georges Polti, it was meant to categorize every possible...

icedpink asked: I get over emotional when I read books and cry like the cat that I don't have died.
Anonymous asked: I just can't help but splurge on books (even though I mostly only buy on Booksales). Sometimes, I would buy 5 at a time (even though I still have a tower to choose from at home). And books are the only things I would never regret buying (I would rather buy them than food or clothes).
