The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling

The Tales of Beedle the Bard is a delightful tiny book! To tell you the truth, I had low expectation when I picked up the book (which was accidentally just sitting on the library shelf when I passed by), because there’s nothing could be near as good as Harry Potter coming from J.K. Rowling, am […]

I spent pretty much the entire week finishing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Finally! I finished the series and joined the shrieking fan club. Both reviews of The Tales of Beedle the Bard and HP and the Deathly Hallows coming soon. Not that they need any review. But I should put some of my […]

24 Hour Read-a-thon: Hour 24

Hour 24! And I’m wide awake! (Though that’s just because it’s 9pm here) I’m gonna do the last hour meme, and call it a day. Phew! 1. Which hour was most daunting for you? None. But that’s probably because I didn’t push myself that much. I slept for 6 hours and I actually didn’t do […]

Read-a-thon: Hour 17

I’m enjoying this so far, as long as I don’t look too much at people’s statistic, like how many gazillion pages they have read or how many dozens of books they have finished. I have probably read about 5 hours more or less, while the rest was spent sleeping, eating, and blogging. Isn’t it great […]

The fabulous organizers have set up a page with the participants’ feeds, which is totally awesome! Love it! Now, answering the first […]
