I’m going to designate either Fridays or Sundays as days for semi-random thoughts that may or may not be book related. Sunday Funday sounds better, I suppose. We’ll see.
Just a couple of random things today.
I’m thinking about doing some kind of giveaway when I hit 100 followers – I’m at 96 right now. Maybe an Amazon Giftcard?
I’m also thinking about quitting linking to Amazon – they’ve had questionable business practices for a while now. I see a lot of people linking to the Goodreads profile for a book, and I know there’s another online seller that people are using but I can’t remember the name of it.
If I do random thoughts on Sundays instead of Fridays, I could join the Friday 56 – which is basically turn to page 56 of the book you’re currently reading and post a non-spoilery excerpt. Could be fun. Which would make my blog schedule the following:
Sunday Funday (random shit)
Monday Book Review
Top Ten Tuesday
Wednesday Library Loot
Thursday Book Review
Saturday Book Review
And then I’d be publishing every day. I’m not 100% sure I can keep that up long term. I will have to consider that.
Dominaria Pre-Release is tonight! I don’t play Magic outside casual games with my housemates, but my husband is playing tonight, and will be bringing home the box we pre-ordered. I do love opening packs and scanning them into our database. I have a collecting personality. Between books, Magic cards, and pets/mounts/achievement points in World of Warcraft…yeah. I like to collect things. XD
Tomorrow we’re playing D&D, and sometime this weekend we’ll be seeing Infinity War. I’m gonna cry if Cap or any of the Wakandans die. They won’t kill T’Challa, though – he’s too profitable!
A very good point was made on Twitter the other day about using “inclusive” instead of “diverse” so I will be making an effort to change my language going forward!
Edit: Realized today was another school walkout day for the anniversary of the Columbine shooting. There was a shooting the year before that at Thurston, a high school 10 miles from my own. I was a junior at the time. I remember being herded into classrooms and watching the news. Kip Kinkel shot his parents, then went to the school and proceeds to shoot almost everyone in the cafeteria. He killed two students and wounded 25 more before two of the wounded students tackled him and held him until authorities arrived. We had no idea at the time that this would become common. (Kinkel is currently serving a life sentence with no possibility of parole.) This is why I support the walkouts.
