HAHA I know, I’m trying to cut down on books, why would I be collecting them? Well, part of cutting down the number is because I want to be more intentional about the books I collect and hold onto. I want to complete some series I’d started accumulating, and some collections based on author, but…… Continue reading I’m Starting Book Collections
I did a dog book tag, it’s only fair I also do a cat one! I found this one on Musing’s from Neville’s Navel. First, dis my kitty: Kitty name of Mo. ^_^ As always, book selections reflect recent reading rather than all-time perfect choices. purr: What book made you happy and relaxed? Mooncop by Tom Gauld?…… Continue reading The What Cats Do Book Tag
I’m back on the Star Trek posts at Comparative Geeks, with a reflection last month and a post on movie commentaries today! I’ve gotta actually watch more TNG soon and get some more posting material, I know… I’ve been sick-slash-injured for most of December and January (moral of the story: if you have severe allergies,…… Continue reading Update: February!
It’s time for my most favorite post, the end-of-year book survey hosted by Perpetual Page-Turner! Not a lot of people read these all the way through, but I still love doing them. Because survey. And the questions always help me reflect on the books I’ve read in a substantive way. I’m a forgetful little scamp…… Continue reading 2017 End of Year Book Survey
No posts this week due to the holiday. Have an excellent weekend, whether you celebrate or not, and don’t forget there was another massive oil spill in the US last week. It’s relevant.
So back in May, Jamie from the Perpetual Page-Turner did a post called “Currently…”, in the style of those Facebook and blog circulars that ask you what you’re doing currently in various categories. It wasn’t really a tag, but I’m shamelessly stealing it because it’s great and once I start reading these things I can’t…… Continue reading Currently… (tag)
This month’s Star Trek post is a roundup of Trek/comic book crossovers. Some of them are odd, one is amazing. Check it out! I moved a couple weeks ago, from a horrible student apartment into a real grown-up apartment, so that’s been taking up most of my energy. Getting everything moved, cleaning both places, getting utilities set…… Continue reading Update: November!
This month’s Star Trek post is basically about how the structure of the show lends itself to Kirk/Spock shipping, with particular attention to the famously shippy licensed novel Killing Time. It’s probably the best Trek post I’ve done in a while, if I do say so myself. But it’s certainly the topic that has interested me most, so…… Continue reading Update: October!
I was gonna do a thing, I didn’t do the thing, I ended up without a post idea for today and no books I could finish in time to review. But I found the A to Z Bookish Survey on A Bookish Bi, and I can’t resist a survey! Side note: I’m pretty sure I…… Continue reading A to Z Bookish Survey
So there’s a travel guide for the planet Vulcan from Star Trek. As a hardcore Vulcan-obsessed Trekkie, of course I wanted to check it out. I didn’t have high hopes, I just expected it to be mildly amusing and nicely designed — it’s from Insight Editions, which publishes a lot of TV and film art…… Continue reading Review: Vulcan (Hidden Universe Travel Guides) by Dayton Ward
