Update 3 (Oct. 26, 2021): Added an FAQ section to address a few questions that keep coming up :)
Update 2 (Oct. 20, 2020): Got refunded for the second book I ordered just before lockdown, but said book also turned up at the local post office and I had to go pick it up
Update 1 (Aug.14, 2020): Got refunded for one of two books I ordered just before lockdown
Thought I’d share my experience with Book Depository because I’ve googled about this a few times. Why not add my own experience to the internet, right? LOL. Okay, here it is.
Happy 2019, friends!
Oh, I know, it’s already April. Just thought I’d post about something so I can actually have something new on this blog.
Feeling meh about stuff
So, how’s your year so far? I’m assuming that unlike me you’ve fully said your goodbyes to 2018 and have done all your prep and planning for 2019. I mean, you know, you’ve done whatever it is that you usually do at the start of each year. I hope you’re doing better than me when it comes to that. It’s already April (my birth month!) and I haven’t really done anything.
Happy August 2nd, folks! August 2nd is not really a thing, right? But it’s a new month and with it come some pretty interesting challenges for moi and some pretty exciting things I’m looking forward to. I have lots on my mind and on my plate for the month and I just wanted to share it with you. Yeah, I really should be working right now, but lemme just spout off these things, okay?
I just realized it’s already July and we’re halfway through the year. Thought I should do a mid-year report of some sort just to lay out how my year has been. Also, I wanted to blog about something personal to balance out all the book spotlights I’ve been doing for the last few weeks. I admit, all those bookish posts are a sign of how lazy I am to blog about other things.
Anyway, not gonna ramble long about that. So, I’m basing this mid-year check on my new year post last January. Here we go!
Father’s Day is right around the corner, folks! Got anything special planned for the dads in your life?
I’ve to admit, I’m not really the gift-giving type. Probably got that from my family. I mean, sure, we celebrated special days but gifts were usually reserved for birthdays and Christmas. Most probably because we weren’t well off and there were more important things to spend on. This is also probably why I’m not great at picking presents. I tend to go for things that are useful as opposed to things that are nice to have. Know what I mean?
Anyway, never mind what I was just babbling about. It’s almost Father’s Day and for those who are still clueless about what to get your dad, grandad, husband, brother, boyfriend, friend or whoever, here’s something you should check out!
Gifts Less Ordinary, an online marketplace for unique and unusual gift items, has a Father’s Day selection that’s pretty nifty if you’re looking for something cool and different for the fathers in your life!
I don’t really know what to do with this blog at the moment, so I thought I’d just take a page from LizofWords and do this Rapid Fire Book Tag thing for today. Yay! It’s basically just a bunch of bookish questions that I’m supposed to answer rapidly (explain explain). LOL.
Okay, blog post filler, here we go! Haha.
Last month I posted my list of goals for the year and there were only six things on that list: read 3 books a month, write in my Q&A A Day For Writers journal, practice yoga, play ultimate, eat healthy and learn about chakras, meditation, etc.
These “goals” were more like “things I want to do this year” and I wanted to be pretty chill about them because I didn’t want to pressure myself. Anyway, a month into the new year I realized that some of these goals will really have to take a backseat if I focus on one or two because that’s exactly what happened.
