The Bookish Report

Here are all of the top bookish stories, blog posts, pictures, and videos I found this past week. I put this post up every Sunday so come back again next week for more bookish awesomeness.

Click away and enjoy your Sunday!


Read this for a depressing laugh.

Amazon is still trying to take over the world and this time James Patterson has a few choice words to say on the topic.

Maya Angelou has died. "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Reading Rainbow rocked it on Kickstarter. I loved Reading Rainbow growing up... so many good memories. Is bringing it back as awesome as I thought it was going to be? Read the two articles to get the two different opinions on the topic. I still believe in Reading Rainbow.

Blog Posts

Parajunkee has two awesome posts that you must read. All women should read this post and all social media users should read this post.

If you are a book lover, which I'm sure you are because you are reading my blog, then you must read all about the new call for giving trigger warnings to students before they read books or watch movies for a class at the college level. I agree with Christine, the author of this post, on this one.

The Quiet Concert has a new feature up on the blog that you don't want to miss. If you wan't to know what it is then you must head over there yourself to read it.

I'm loving the Book Looks feature over at Some Like it Paranormal!


I will watch this. Chad Michael Murray is in it, and no matter how bad Nicolas Cage's roles continue to get I still like him.


  1. I really loved Christine's take on the trigger warning issue.

    So sad about Maya Angelou passing away -- I definitely need to re-read I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

    1. I should do a re-read as well. I did take some time to read a couple of her poems after I heard the news.

  2. I'll have to check out some of these links-thanks!

  3. 1. Those children book remakes are hilarious.
    2. I don't know how I feel about the whole Amazon debate, but as long as they keep selling books cheaper than most other outlets, they are going to stay my primary source cause i'm not made of money
    3. Love that quote. RIP.
    4. I don't think I've made any social media faux pas (I hope).
    5. ME ME ME. I am so glad you like the post :) I had fun making it!!
    6. The matching that is going on in that Book Likes post is crazy awesome!

    1. 1. I laughed so hard.
      2. One day maybe money will grow on trees, but until then I agree with you.
      3. RIP
      4. You make them all the time...J/K You haven't.
      5. I loved the post!
      6. I really thought that feature was cool and creative. :)
