Its been quite sometime since I last updated. And it made me miss Oh Three like hell. So, what was I supposed to be talking about again? Oh right. Books. Lots and lots of 'em
You guys might think, What the hell is this Authonomy thing?
. Well i'm here, to tell you guys all about that. (And no, I wasn't/am not paid to do this).
For me, Authonomy
is the best site ever made for aspiring authors, like me. Here, writers can publish their unpublished work and might as well be discovered
! :) It's conceived and built by the editors of HarperCollins
, one of the most known book publisher of all time. Actually, anybody's welcome here. If you're a reader, read endlessly. If you're a writer, publish your work and be known all over the globe. The site is also protected by Copyright, so you won't have to worry about copycats who might steal your work.
I've been bitching about books for days now, yes Twitter was one of my witnesses. You can also ask my dear followers, whom I've been irritating because of my spamming habit. Well, I apologize with all my heart. Its just that, I can't seriously stop from reading. A minute without a book in my hand and I'll die. I kid. :) My point is that I'm a total Bookworm.
And I sometimes hate myself for being such.
Secondly, I was browsing Amazon yesterday and found out about Kindle
. A wireless reading device that carries over a thousand and a half e-books
. I've been wanting this for like, forever; but had the thought of it being 'more than a WANT but a NEED'
. Someone like me needs a wireless reading device badly. I own more than a dozen books and I just can't carry 'em anywhere I go, well I could, If I want to look like a walking library, or worse, a walking librarian
. Although if we see each other in the mere-future, don't mistaken me for one. Anyhoo, I promised myself I'll be spending less on online shopping and more on saving up for that Kindle. I'm trying
to be an
and not bother my parents when I need or want
something. :) But in the meantime, I downloaded Kindle for PC
to be able to read e-books I'll be
(Okay, I'll save up starting next week) on Amazon. To start off, I
Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol
for $0.00. :D
I'm also reading the prequel of the book Diary of a Crush
. And its subtitle? Diary of a Crush 3: Sealed with a Kiss
. Last school year, 3 of my classmates and I had gone book sharing for over a month revolving around The Princess Diaries
and Diary of a Crush
. I read the first 2 books, thanks to my mate, and bought the last one 'cause I just can't resist the Edie-Dylan Tandem
I'm talking too much. I should get back to reading. :D Major updates on my Twitter
