A Very Late July Bookhaul!

It has been brought to my attention that I’ve neglected to post my July bookhaul! Whoops. So busy with studying it slipped my mind. Now, this is the smallest one I’ve done. For quite some time and that’s because I’m moving in the new year, and now sure how much room I’ll have!!!!

Without further ado…

Feeling incomplete that I have to be on book-buying restrictions lol.

Happy buying and reading


May E-Book Haul

So if you’ve seen my library, you know that I have a small space to work with and because of that I have to sometimes be selective with hardcopy’s… Nah I just buy ebook’s when i want ROFL. I know that there are a lot of people who just can’t ebooks, and trust me I understand I used to be one of those people. But I saw the light and seriously LOVE IT. Means you can have two libraries!!

Anyway, here’s my May e-book haul.

Happy reading and buy


May Book Haul

That time of the new month, where we go back and have a look at all the books I bought. There were many, which isn’t new!

You may wonder where my addiction started? My parents aren’t readers, however as a two year old, while other little girls were carrying around dolls and teddies I was carry a golden book around 🙂  From that moment on, I’ve loved books.

So without further ado, here’s my stash! I’ll do my May e-book haul shortly.

Coming shortly is the e-book May haul. What was your haul like for May?
Happy reading and buying

April Book Haul WrapUp

A little late, due to study commitments at the moment, but better late than never! 😜 So as usual I went book buying mad, a little more so last month as I’m one of those people that buys books when I stressed, so the more stressed, the more books… 

Without further ado…

156 hard copies…🙊 Then there’s the Ebooks… For another day 😉 

Happy buying and reading!


So, how’s that new Kindle Oasis…

So the path that led me to my current Kindle Voyage, was a long an arduous one.  I’d previously tried a kindle three times before and just couldn’t get into in.  I was subconsciously blocking the experience but saying to myself, it’s not a book. Nothing beats the smell and feel of a book. I can’t show off my library. It’s not a book. It ain’t no book. I can’t do this… And then I started think think about the real advantages of them.

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE my library and I’ll never be rid of it, but I started loving the idea of being able to carry a whole library around in my handbag.  I loved the idea of being able to get a book on kindle that is out of print of unavailable in hardcopy… The more I thought about it, the more I realised I really needed to give it a go. So I did.

At the end of 2014, I bought a Paperwhite.  It was hard at first. I couldn’t concentrate


Kindle PaperWhite

when I read off the screen and I stopped after two weeks. Then I reminded myself of the pro’s and got back into it. After about two months, I slowly started coming around. Then at the 6month mark I was almost ready to say that I… Loved. It. Then when the new Voyage came out last year, I jumped at the chance to get it, because if you know me, you’ll know I’m obsessed with technology and feel the constant need to up-date to the most current of everything, LOL.


Kindle Oasis

And now, they’ve announced the release of the fancy new Kindle Oasis.  I have to admit, I’m loving it already and have already pre-ordered! It’s not for everyone, I know that some people have mentioned that it just doesn’t have enough new fandangle bits and pieces to warrant such an expensive price tag. But for me, all those little new bits and pieces add up, I love the thinner design, the charging case, the colors, the new spine-look, the page buttons, the led’s and the rest of it.  I’m definitely sold.

You often come across the memes on instagram and facebook debating which is better, the book or the ebook, and I don’t get why there’s the need for the comparison. Why can’t we love both just as much as each other? They both have their pro’s and con ‘s. Where one can’t do something, the other one allows for it.  There’s most certainly enough love in this bookworms heart and library, for both!!


The Great Book v Ebook Debate

Have you got an ebook reader? Will you be joining me in the Oasis fan group?

Happy Reading and Buying!!
