Dear Readers - An Apology

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016
Received on Friday, October 28th, 2016

Dear Readers,

I'm sorry for not keeping the blog alive this past month. Will you forgive me?

I messed up this month. Big time. Not only did I mess up towards the end of September, but for the majority of this month, I didn't write or prepare any blog posts for you. I don't really know how many people read or care about this blog, but for the small audience that I probably (or hope I) have, I would like to apologize. No content for a bit over three weeks? I know I would be going mad if that were to happen to some of my favorite blogs.

What happened? What caused me to not write blog posts? Well, I can't really say. I guess it had to do with school, for one thing. It can be busy at times, and weekends are usually for relaxing or for meeting up with friends, and while I suppose I could have used some of my free time for blogging rather than reading or blankly scrolling around bookstagram, I did not.

I should have tried more. I really should have. And, sure: this blog is just for fun, right? But isn't this good practice for skills I'll need in the future? Skills such as planning? Marketing? (Who knows if I'll actually need that one, though.) Writing?

I apologize. I'll try to do better this next month.

  1. This is from your BESTIE, Saloni. I like this blog. It is very cool. Also you're practically famous. Which makes me practically famous by association. Thanks, I guess... tee-hee.
    P.S. Sorry but I wasn't sure how to make this not by "unknown..." But this is Saloni. Trust me; nobody else would come up with a name like that.
    P.P.S. My regards to JuJu and Emily (I still need to come up with a nickname for you!)

2017 Reading Goals - Update

Now that we're more or less halfway through 2017, I decided that it's about time to do a little update on how well Em and I are doing with the reading goals we made for ourselves at the beginning of 2017. We didn't make our goals extremely specific. All we did was choose a number based on how much we wanted to read and what seemed reasonable based on how much we knew we had read in 2016. And now it's time to reflect on those goals... oh boy.

I honestly don't think things are going well for Em. When I asked her if she remembered her original goal, she had no clue. (It was 50 books!) But, after a few months with only one book finished at the end of each one, she had lessened her goal to a more reasonable 30. (She couldn't remember this number, either!) Drawing knowledge from my experience with my monthly goals for Reading is Inevitable, I don't think that you can do all too well if you don't remember your goals. And it looks like this is true for Em as w…

Denik's New Layflat Softcover Notebooks - Review

Hey there everyone! If you've seen our bookstagram recently, you would know that we got some amazing new Denik notebooks! Now if you've never heard the name "Denik" before then I think it's time that you know, and after you read this post go check out their website, okay? (They actually came out with a new website design, too. It's amazing.)

Denik is so much more than just a notebook/sketchbook-selling company. The word Denik describes the whole community and cause that surrounds the company, a "grassroots, artsy-eclectic bunch", as it is so beautifully described on their website. The designs displayed on the covers of their products are made by artists around the world, no matter who they are or where they come from. With the income from the notebooks and sketchbooks they sell, Denik gives some to support these artists and to build schools for children around the world. The whole idea that Denik is built upon is that, together, art and people can …

All the Books I Own But Have Not Read (Part 1)

As of Wednesday, June 21st, summer is officially here. Ah: summer. That season when the sun comes out and kids get off from school. And, yes, while this does sound nice, this also means that it's going to be really hot and you're going to have so much time on your hands that you won't know what to do with it. Lucky for me, however, I also happen to own a whole bunch of books that I haven't yet read.

That's reasonable, though, right? Us bookworms find it a little hard to buy just one book when going to the bookstore, and since you kinda have a reputation for loving books, there's a good chance that you'll receive two or three books around holidays and birthdays. And you don't even want to get me started about book sales. Therefore, the books just start to pile up a bit. And while you'd love to read them, school and/or work and just life in general gets in the way.

However, the school year ended quite a bit ago. Summer vacation has begun. I finally h…

Quotes: Audacity

As some of you may know by looking at my posts on our social media page (@readingisinevitable on Instagram), I am currently reading Audacity by Melanie Crowder. It is a beautiful book written in free verse, and follows the life of Clara Lemlich, a female Jewish immigrant who came to America in the early 1900s. (For the full summary of the book, click here.) I absolutely love books written in free verse, or any type of poetry, in fact! This book is so lovely that I have decided to dedicate a whole post to some of my favorite quotes or parts! (Note: I am only on page 294, and there are 366 pages, not including the extra content at the end of my local library's copy.)
