It’s become quite evident that my obsessive film admiration has been spilling over into my book blogging here. And video games are starting to encroach upon this bibliophile domain. A long time ago I had a blog just for film reviews and such, but it never got as much attention as the one I kept devoted to books. So I am wondering if I should perhaps include some of my cinephile tendencies as proper review outlets here on Bookish Hobbit. It would probably follow similar structure to the book reviews you find on here. I don’t see it as becoming an overwhelming part of this blog, but you may see something film related here or there. There was already plans for Book vs. Movie comparisons at some point because my love for movies is often tied to my love for books.
It’s my blog. I do what I want, got that memorized?
Let us read, and let us dance, these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
I want to thank those who commented on my earlier post and I think that after much thought on the subject I have decided to drop the use of ratings on my reviews here at Bookish Hobbit. (Even though they’re such pretty Rings!)
Book reviews could contain a postscript because I’m a bit crazy and need to exorcise that madness through this blog. I need an excuse to use those graphics I find on Tumblr.
Whatever your faith and however you choose to celebrate (or not), I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas and good fortune for the New Year.
I’m so excited to have a shiny new blog to post my book reviews and musings for your viewing pleasure. I have been blogging about books for the past four years, but I wanted to start fresh at a new blogging service and with a new name. I had an account here on WordPress for academic reasons and decided to put it to good use again with this new site. I’m planning on being super organized here!
So what kind of stuff are you going to find here on Bookish Hobbit? Despite the name, there will be more than just my Tolkien fangirling, believe it or not. Reviews, of course, in all conceivable genres because I don’t really stick to one niche in my reading. You will also find my random book musings posted here or any fun memes that may happen to be floating around which catch my interest. And I do fancy the occasional reading challenge or two.
I read both paper and digital books. I’m the surprised owner of an Alura-tek Libre Pro and it’s opening up new avenues for my books and easing the burden of storage in my living environment. So this should be a fun experience gaining new titles through this format. I’ve been reading a lot of great books from my local library and since discovering that they’re available as e-books I don’t have to worry about whether or not I’ll have the space to add them to my collection. Hence you shall probably be hearing about how I’ve adjusted my life to living with an eReader!
So please pardon the mess as I get myself settled in here at a new place.
