Do People Ever Spell Your Name Wrong?

Do People Ever Spell Your Name Wrong?

Honestly, this is more of a rant than a discussion. I’ve bellyached many times about people spelling my name wrong, and I’m sure some of you have seen it. For some ridiculous reason, people at work STILL call me “Jess” or spell my name “Jessie” despite me correcting them a hundred f*cking times. I seriously think they do it on purpose to piss me off. IT WORKS. Okay, maybe that’s just a tad harsh. I wouldn’t really stab someone. Anyway. It […]

Some of You Have Book Twins…I Have Book QUADRUPLETS!

Some of You Have Book Twins…I Have Book QUADRUPLETS!

Yep, that’s right. Quadruplets. A while back, Octavia did a discussion about book twins (I’m hers :D). I’m going to do my own, expanding on that because I now have 3 of them! Book Quadruplet #1 Ashley @ Nose Graze. Ashley was my first ever book twin! Out of all of them, I think her and I have the most similar tastes. For a couple of years now she’s always been the first place I go when I want to decide whether or […]

Novel Thoughts: I suck at commenting

Novel Thoughts: I suck at commenting

I want to reply to every single comment I get. I really do. But I just…don’t. What happens the most is: I look at a comment on my blog. I can’t think of anything to reply other than “thank you” or some lame agreement, not amounting to more than a sentence, so I don’t reply. Instead I go to my commenter’s blog…but then I can’t find anything that I have any thoughts about that are worth commenting either. So I just…don’t….comment. Is that bad? While I want to acknowledge every […]

Staples Reading Speed Test

Staples Reading Speed Test

I originally found this test over at Tempest Books (thanks for sharing, Miranda!), and thought it was so awesome I wanted to do a full post about my own results. I’ve always wondered how my reading speed compared to other readers! I know that I can finish a 300 page book in roughly 3 hours on average, but it was very interesting to see it broken down. Without further ado… (The first time I took the test I got 513 with 100% accuracy. […]

Novel Thoughts: Are Facebook Pages Actually Useful?

Novel Thoughts: Are Facebook Pages Actually Useful?

On my old Facebook page, back when I was still Auntie Spinelli Reads, I had nearly 1,000 likes. Then I had to start over. Now, despite having the new page for almost a year, I only have 166 likes. I’ve tried posting on the old page, tweeting, and posting on here. Nothing seems to help. My question is: Is there even any point? I’m honestly thinking of deleting my Facebook page altogether. It posts for me automatically when I publish a […]

Novel Thoughts: In Which I Fail at All 2014 Challenges

Novel Thoughts: In Which I Fail at All 2014 Challenges

I went into the year all gung-ho about my reading challenges. In fact, I set my goals lower than last year and only chose to participate in 4 challenges.   13 books behind schedule. THIRTEEN. How awful is that?! Two years ago, I read 140 books in a year. Last year I read 100. This year, I set my number low to alleviate some of the pressure. And still, I’m failing. *sighs* Granted, I did move into a new house and […]
