Review-a-thon mini challenge 2

Join us for our Review-a-thon!The next mini challenge is about cross posting our reviews. I suck at cross posting my reviews. I never do it. I post it here, mark the book as read on Goodreads and that is that. I usually don’t even bother to rate it a Goodreads, so this challenge IS a challenge for me indeed. However, if I get a book under the condition to post reviews on various sites, it goes without saying I will do that.

I have a review ready to go and another one to write this week, so I will make sure to cross-post them. I need to check on the publishing date of one of the books as I think it will only be out in a few weeks, so I might have to wait with that one.

Really, there is no reason not to cross-post, I am just too lazy to do it.

You might not know this, but I *love* lists. So what I need to do is create a little checklist to use, so I won’t forget…

…OK, now it is later and I made my to do list. That way, at least I know what to do next time I want to post a review. This is what it looks like. I hope it will make things easier for me.

I am not sure I even WANT to post on amazon. I will have to think about that. After all it is not mandatory for a book blogger to post anywhere but on your blog (unless you are out for fame and possibly fortune) so I might give amazon a miss. I only have so much time for blogging and, to be honest, I’d rather read and write more for my own blog than use my time to provide amazon with content. 

If anyone would like to use my list, feel free to download the letter sized larger version. Just click on the image and when it is open right-click and “save as” to your HD. There are quite a few lines for you to fill out yourself according to your needs.


Android wallpaper "Spring”


I felt like something spring on my phone, so I used a few elements and a paper by Nina from simply me to make this very simple wallpaper for Android. The size is 640 x 480px , to download, please go to the file at mobile9.

To give you an idea, you can see what the wallpaper might look like in real life, depending on your phone model and homescreen.…



New SE theme: Another Place

“Another Place“ is a piece of art with 100 sculptures by artist Antony Gormley, which is situated at Crosby Beach, England, at the moment. It looks as if it might stay there for good. An absolutely lovely place. I’ve had those photos on my HD for a couple of years and wanted to do something with them, but never knew what. Now I turned them into a phone theme, which is available at
