The DNF Debate

Discussion Post: My DNFing habits.

 

At the start of the year, one of my bookish New Year’s resolutions was to be more decisive when it came to DNFing books. Largely, this was because I have so many books on my TBR—so many great books I want to read, and so many books sitting on my actual physical shelves. Why should I waste my time forcing myself to continue with a book that I’m not enjoying, when I could put that time to better use, reading something I love?

This year I’ve DNFed seven books.

TTT: Bookish Funko Wish List

November 13: Bookish Items/Merchandise I’d Like to Own

I’m not sure if it was for Top Ten Tuesday, but I vaguely remember doing a really similar post to this one not that long ago: recommending our favourite places to buy bookish merchandise.  I mentioned some candles, bookmarks, book boxes etc that I really liked in that one.

Instead, I thought I’d focus on one particular kind of merchandise that I really like: Funko Pops. I just think they’re so cute. I love how collectable they are and that they can really cover a range or different interests. So, for this week I thought I’d share with you some book-related or book adaption based Funko Pops that I’d really like to add to my collection.

NaNoWriMo Survival Kit

So, it’s November the twelfth, which makes us just under halfway through NaNoWriMo.

How are you getting on?

I’ve been pretty lousy so far — I’ve not even been tracking on the site — bit I’ve just not been in the mood, so I’ve been catching up on a lot of reading instead.

Still, this week I thought I would share with you my NaNoWriMo survival kit: all the things that I personally find really helpful when I’m stuggling to write. Maybe some of these things will be useful to you? Maybe these are just weird things I use? Either way, hopefully, it’ll be interesting.
