Book Nerd Problems #10: E-Books and E-Readers, YAY or NAY?

Book Nerd Problems #10: E-Books and E-Readers, YAY or NAY?

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#10. E-Books and E-Readers, YAY or NAY?I’m not sure this topic has been fully exhausted yet in the book blogging world, but I do always like giving my own view on things. So today I want to talk about e-books. In fact, this is inspired by one of my lectures at university, where we talked about how e-books are quite a radical innovation with a lot of potential (still).Anyway. I own an e-reader, more specifically: the Sony Reader, and I love it to bits. […]

Book Nerd Problems #9: Relatable Characters (or, ‘Creating My Bookish DNA’)

Book Nerd Problems #9: Relatable Characters (or, ‘Creating My Bookish DNA’)

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#9. Relatable Characters (or, ‘Creating My Bookish DNA’) One of the most exciting things, as a book nerd, and possibly one of the first determinants of whether or not I’ll like the book, is when the book I’m reading contains a character that I relate to so much, it’s almost like looking in a mirror. Sometimes you almost wonder if the author just picked you up and wrote you into his/her world.A relatable character has such an impact on the reading experience, I think, […]

Book Nerd Problems #8: Creative Shelving

Book Nerd Problems #8: Creative Shelving

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#8. Creative ShelvingOne thing that makes me really sad actually to be a book nerd right NOW is that I live in one room, and that totally limits the space I have for books. I keep buying them regardless, and now all my shelves are filled, and aside from that there‘s random piles of books on the floor, in storage cupboards, on top of bookcases, etc. Obviously, living in one room tires really fast, and I constantly dream about the day that I’ll have […]

Book Nerd Problems #7: The Mid-Series Novella

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#7. The Mid-Series NovellaI’m sorry for my recent absence with Book Nerd Problems, but I’m back, and hopefully I can keep up this time. I think everybody and their mother has covered this topic in any kind of book blogger discussion, but maybe you’d still like to see my view on things with a couple of lovely gifs thrown in there.It’s not just the publishing industry, but business in general. Perhaps particularly in the entertainment industry, with all forms of media, once something is […]

Book Nerd Problems #6: Public Displays of Nerdiness

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#6. Public Displays of Nerdiness (or, ‘How Debby Went to Hogwarts’)Every so often, as a true book nerd, I just can’t contain myself. Something awesome happens or I see something in public, and that gives me some feelings, and true to my socially awkward self, I make that rather visible. Depending on how nerdy/intense the stimulus/feelings, the following reactions are all game:GaspingSquealingMad gigglingJumpingRamblingShoutingFainting Now, obviously, most of these reactions occur behind closed doors, because I spend way more time on my computer than I’d care […]

Book Nerd Problems #5: The Series Plague

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#5. The Series PlagueI don’t know about you guys, but lately I’m quite overwhelmed by all the series in YA. The more I browse through Goodreads, the more I think, “Do stand alones even exist anymore?” Well, I know they do, and 2013 is packed with stand alones I’m excited for, like Poison, Transparent, September Girls, This Is What Happy Looks Like, Invisibility… *cough*It’s obvious why series exist. Fans always want more. Enough is never enough, especially when you get emotionally attached to the […]

This is a periodic discussion feature here at Snuggly Oranges about the many problems one can run into as a book nerd.#4. Social AwkwardnessThis week’s Book Nerd Problems is a bit more personal than the last ones. I’m not expecting everyone to relate to this one – man, I’m glad for you if you can’t. But I at least have the support of Judith in this, and that’s about all it takes for me to go on a gif hunt to tell you guys a story.See, since I’ve not been a book nerd for too long, and this blog is still relatively new, I’ve witnessed […]
