Thursday’s Things – Free Books Edition

“Thursday’s Things” is a roundup of book-related links I’ve come across while wandering down the rabbit hole that is the internet.

I’m on a book buying ban for the next month or so.  The Boyfriend and I might be moving to San Fransisco, and if we do, the square footage of where we end up living is bound to be tiny in comparison to our current apartment.  So, not only do I need to save money for moving expenses, but I need to save as much precious physical space as possible.  However, no one said I can’t “shop” for ebooks without spending any money!  Here is a list of 10 places we can all get our fix for free:

Thursday’s Things: Winter Edition

“Thursday’s Things” is a roundup of book related links I’ve come across while wandering down the rabbit hole that is the internet.

  • 10 Charles Dickens Novels Everyone Should Read – Whenever I think of Dickens or the bleak settings of most of his books, I think of winter.  Also, I read A Christmas Carol every year.
  • A Literary Advent Calendar – So, I know this is extremely late, it being the 21st, but I just rediscovered this post buried in my Pocket.  I’m making my way through it to get caught up as quickly as possible.  So far, my favorite story is from Dec. 8th.
  • Winter Tales – Here’s a whole list of stories that are a bit on the darker side.  Many of them are ghost stories, and the idea of curling up with a blanket and a giant mug of hot chocolate while reading them is so Hygge that I’m wishing I had come across this page the night it snowed here in Austin.
  • 45 Bookish Ornaments Of 2017 – I’m saving this list so that I can hopefully find several of these ornaments for when I have room enough for a life-size Christmas tree, instead of the tiny one that is currently on top of my coffee table.
  • 25 Stories to Put You In the Festive Spirit – I’ve read several on this list, and I’ll be looking to see if I can find a few of the others at the library to take with me on my trip to Arizona on Saturday.
  • A Pictorial History of Santa Claus
  • A Reading List for the Christmas Books Obsessed – This is an amazing list that I’m considering turning into an Advent calendar for next year.
  • Which Game Of Thrones House Would You Fight For?  Winter isn’t coming.  It’s here.  Today is the Winter Solstice after all.
  • 3 Cozy Fantasy Reads for Winter – I’ve already added the 1st and 3rd books to my wish list.

Thursday’s Things: It’s All About the Hobbits

“Thursday’s Things” is a roundup of book related links I’ve come across while wandering down the rabbit hole that is the internet.

Every September, Tolkien fans return to the Shire.  Even though September is also the start of #RIPXII, I am no exception.  So, this month will be a strange mix of Middle Earth and Gothic content.  However, this “Thursday’s Things” is all about the Hobbits!

Students are headed back to school for another year of learning, and I’m just a wee bit jealous!  The #SciFiSummer reading challenge is still going strong with roughly a month left, so I mixed in a few Science Fiction related links with the more “scholarly” ones.

I enjoyed putting together the Fantasy edition of “Thursday’s Things” so much that I decided to do another one.  Yes, much of it is related to the “Harry Potter” series, but that’s what I tend to find the most of on the interwebs.

During my Sci-Fi Summer reading challenge last year, I did a Thursday’s Things edition that was nothing but links related to Science Fiction.  I realized that I had never done one that was entirely made up of Fantasy.  So, in the spirit of feeling balanced, here are ten bookish Fantasy things I’ve come across:

Thursday’s Things: Women’s History Month

“Thursday’s Things” is a collection of interesting stuff I’ve found during my meanderings on the net.  Sometimes it’s monthly, other times it’s whenever I happen to find at least 10 topically related links I think are worth reading, but it’s always on a Thursday.

March is Women’s History Month, and yesterday was International Women’s Day.  That makes today the perfect Thursday to give you tons of stuff about Women, Women’s History, Feminism, etc.  Most of these links are reading suggestions, but when do we not need more books to add to our TBR piles?

Thursday’s Things: The October Country Edition

I named this month’s Thursday’s Things after Ray Bradbury’s short story collection “The October Country” because it sums up all the weird and spooky bookish links I discovered during my wanderings around the internet.
