History for Books

A good dose of teen literature

I’m way behind on my book posts and since today is Support Teen Lit Day, it’s the perfect time for me to share some old reviews of mine. One summer in high school, I read around 100 books and most of those were young adult. A couple years later I got obsessed with the weRead […]

Tell Disney to protect Indonesia’s rainforests

This is my third post about tigers within the past few days, but that’s because I keep finding so much tiger news! Plus, who doesn’t love tigers? An email from Rainforest Action Network (RAN) informed me that Disney’s children’s books are not monitored to make sure the paper is coming from rainforest-safe paper. In my […]

Sleeping naked, among so many other things, is green

I read this book in January of last year and absolutely loved it. After reading it, I specifically sought out books that were about green living. Sleeping Naked Is Green is a compilation of Vanessa Farquharson’s blog posts on her website, Green As A Thistle. Vanessa started her blog to document a challenge she had decided […]

Hungry for more games

I realized that I haven’t written a single book-related feature since my very second post and that, to me, is just unacceptable. I’m a bookworm and feel like I’m missing something if I haven’t got a book to read. I’ve been in the process of reading a book for some time now, but I’ve yet […]

eat, pray, love/read, watch, listen

Elizabeth Gilbert has become quite the celebrity with her book Eat, Pray, Love followed by the film of the same name – and for good reason. I finally got to watch Eat Pray Love after months of  anticipation. I had wanted to watch it ever since I watched the first trailer many months ago and […]
