As some of you may know, I am back in school for a Graduate Certificate in Interactive Media Studies! I have been having a wonderful experience exploring different tools and strategies when it comes to social media, user experience, and design. The course I am in currently allows me to do an independent project on anything that is considered visual rhetoric. As the title of this post may allude, I have decided to design a book cover for a book in existence. The trouble is, I have no idea which one I would like to ‘redesign’. That’s where I need YOUR help!
It is a rare site these days. Occupying a local coffeeshop or bookstore with a current read in tow, but…. this time, you are not alone. You are with your whole family! Shocking! Unheard of! How can reading together constitute ‘family time’? Do they read the same book?
As an introvert, I think A LOT! Sometimes (more often than not) OVERTHINK! Back in the fall, I stumbled upon an Audiobook on my way back from a wedding entitled: The Secret Lives of Introverts. I found myself nodding along and verbally saying “Yes” to a lot of what was shared about introverts. The findings are themed in major areas in life: relationships, work, family, friends, etc. For someone who has been assessed in addition to self-identified as a strong introvert, I was immediately bought in. Besides this book, the book references a website known as Introvert, Dear – a place where articles are written from a whole host of introverts around the world about anything you can think of when it comes to introversion.
Alas we have come to end of this series on playlists paired with specific genres of books! There have been a number of book pairing posts and content that have been shared with the bookish community – such as tea, coffee, food, wine, etc. I see a consumption theme here! Although I agree that the reading community enjoys the combination of these items with reading a good book (hello coffee shops, bars, and cafes!), I feel music adds another element to the reading experience, potentially enhancing it!
Welcome back! We are continuing the series on playlists paired with specific genres of books! There have been a number of book pairing posts and content that have been shared with the bookish community – such as tea, coffee, food, wine, etc. I see a consumption theme here! Although I agree that the reading community enjoys the combination of these items with reading a good book (hello coffee shops, bars, and cafes!), I feel music adds another element to the reading experience, potentially enhancing it! I’m starting a series to delve into what those pairings look like.
One of my goals this year is to write and receive guest posts to strengthen my writing and to think more creatively about bookish content. I am thankful to have come across Austine’s blog, the NovelKnight, on Twitter one day early this year. Such perfect timing! Here is the blurb I stumbled across that lays out what she has in mind for guest blogs on NovelKnight:
Behind the Bookwyrm is a guest post blog series where members of the book community come to NovelKnight to share their thoughts, opinions, interests, and anything in between! This series is intended for book bloggers, booktubers, bookstagrammers, booklrs, etc. If you’re using a platform to talk about books, then this is for you!
Right now, this is an open topic feature, meaning that there aren’t really any restrictions on what you can talk about in your post. Granted, this is a book blog so something related to books/reading, book merch/swag, blogging (or your platform of choice), etc. would be preferred over, say, a post on your favorite dog breeds. Let’s keep it bookish!
Originally, I was thinking of a different topic, but felt that was not going to fit into one post. So after some exploration of my bookish and reviewing habits, I landed on one that can be have varying opinions… Head on over to the guest blog on NovelKnight and let me know what you think about The Dreaded DNF!
