Random things that are all related to books & blogs. Browse & Tinker:  a regular feature here in my blog where I’ll showcase website, technology and others fancy things that are related to books and reading. You know this post. Yeah, sadly it was short-lived. I got an email saying that it is abruptly shutting down. I really loved Curata. I’ve tried & tested other rss readers and this one got my needs to a T. So I’m super disappointed and bit panicked when I learned about its impending demise. I have to find replacement and soon. I really don’t

I want to share you guys some personal bookworm habits. These are the things that I do or don’t do when it comes to one my prized possessions: books. I DO: cover books with plastics. The Eternal Ones duology. You can clearly see the plastic cover. Yes, each one of my books has plastic cover (except manga since there are waaaay too many of them when we decided to cover ‘em.

Special: Catching Fire (Movie)

7 years ago | filed under Feature
Oh you guys, remember this fangush last year? Well, Catching Fire is so much better. I think Francis Lawrence did an amazing job. I loved how he managed to put them all together without rushing the scenes too much or felt disconnected. I can tell you that they remained very, very faithful to the material. Of course they needed to omit some scenes but I think all the things they decided to put in there were necessary for all viewers and not just the fans of the books to understand. Jennifer did amazing acting chops here. Well, what will I

There are many book bloggers out there who are relatively new and yet already left an imprint in the community. Do I get jealous? Believe it or not,
