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!


The Book Shimmy Awards has announced its winners! Goodreads also announced the final winners of the Goodreads Choice Awards!
Need help finding the perfect book for your sister, friend, mom, significant other, neighbor or anyone else on your gift buying list? The Penguin Hotline can help you with that.
James Patterson created a petition for President Obama as part of the #SaveOurBooks campaign. It's a really cool idea!
Who hasn't damaged a paperback book before? When I was a kid I was guilty of a lot of these and wish I would have had this helpful list.

  1. Some (ok, most?) of the Book Shimmy winners depress me and I know that is probably not fair and not everyone has the same tastes in books but I feel like there are so many better books than those ones hah - ok rant over. And all of these gift guides make me want to buy all of the bookish things - I even made my own list I think I might post Thursday and the sad thing is I probably won't get any of these things (womp, womp) - ok pity party over. What else can I complain about? ;) Oh, maybe the fact that I DON"T KNOW IF I LIKE PAPERBACKS OR HARDBACKS MORE AND I JUST WISH I DIDN'T HAVE TO CHOOSE. Ok, that's all for now :) Wait, on a positive note - I am glad you are in my club :)

    1. I didn't agree with a lot of the Book Shimmy award winners either. Panic won best standalone and I didn't really enjoy that one and a lot of the other ones I didn't even read.

      I want so many bookish things. So many. Your list didn't help my obsession at all. ;)

      You can come complain to me whenever you want Nicole.
