How do you manage your digital shelves?

How do you manage your digital shelves?

October 26, 2015 Challenge, Discussion 42

Just like organising bookshelves, there are one hundred and one ways you can organise your eReader. Some people have it very set, with categories and subcategories in alphabetical order. Others don’t bother organising it at all! People who can live with that type of chaos in their life terrify me. Organising an eReader is a lot more limited than bookshelf. […]

Do You Keep Your Reviews Vague?

Do You Keep Your Reviews Vague?

August 28, 2015 Discussion 90

I’ve been noticing recently that my reviews are fairly vague.

This approach leads to some pretty unclear, and sometimes short, sentences. Originally I thought this […]
