Review Overdue Series– Whimsy Moon Bookmarks, Online Book Outlet Giveaways, Paperback Emporium, & Desi Writer Lounge’s Literary Open Mic Night

 

 

 

Whimsy Moon


 
 
 
 
 
 
Who doesn’t like a touch of whimsy in their lives? Click on the link and look at the designs on their page and you will end up ordering something or the other. The designs are quirky and just plain, whimsical. They delivered on time and the product arrived in perfect condition. I found the price a tad high but I abso-loved the bookmark. The quote on the bookmark is from the Malazan series. If you haven’t read any of it, then there’s something wrong with you!

 

 

 

Online Books Outlet Giveaway

I came across this post on the page and was the first one to share it. Five minutes later and the bookstore PM’d me, asking me for my address. I had the book within several days of that message. I had recently gifted my own copy to a friend and I won this one in the giveaway. How awesome is that! Here’s a look at the booty won:

Paperback Emporium

When I need a book delivered that I can’t find anywhere, these are the guys I go to. They are extremely responsive on Facebook and always deliver. If they don’t have the book, then they will have it imported for you, like the one pictured above. I found about them via Instagram when I saw these lovelies featured on their feed:

As you can see, I was already drooling and promptly ordered both books, impatiently waiting for them to arrive. Oh, they arrived!

 

As it stands now, I am slowly buying the remaining books from them in this series so as not to break the bank. Give PE a chance; they won’t disappoint!

 

Desi Writer’s Lounge Literary Open Mic Night

 

DWL is always active and always doing something to promote reading and writing in different areas of Pakistan! Since I’d love it if they had more events in my city (Karachi), when I saw the post for Open Mic, I knew I wasn’t going to miss it.

 

A simple registration process through email later and I had signed up as one of the people who would be sharing their work at the event. I was to pay Rs. 350 at the venue. Besides that, they had only one other rule: the work shared must be original. Mine was.

I read something that I had written for Wringo Ink. You can find it here.

 

 

The recital was well received because I was reading in a supportive environment. Whether it was poetry or prose and in English or Urdu, that was being shared, everybody was appreciative.

 

We were seated comfortably and munched on delicious bun-kebabs provided by Sattar Bakhsh while sipping Pepsi. In short, a good was had by all! DWL has promised to share videos and pictures of the event here, so be on the lookout.

More Adult Coloring

I know many of you enjoy the "adult coloring" books available.  Someone posted these "coloring bookmarks" on facebook recently and they are downloadable and free.  Print some on cardstock and enjoy!

 

Since lending someone (not me - I always return them AND in the same condition I received it) a book is often a brave act, I often like to include a bookmark when I return it, as a thank you.  I think something including a coloring bookmark would be a nice touch.

 

They would also make a nice little project for little ones (the difficulty level not being too high) and when they are done ... laminate them to make them more permanent. Just thought I'd share.

Coloring Fun!

I'm not much for coloring books or coloring anything (in fact, I should probably be getting some reading done), but I'm going to admit, I had fun with this.

 

 

And yes, I made copies of those bookmarks first so I could do a few "practice" runs before working on the actual bookmarks.  Yes, I do strange shit like that.

 

Anyway, my shoulders are a little achy from crouching over my desk, but it was fun.  And because I used permanent marker (of the many colored variety, as you can see in the above photo), they leaked through.  The backside looks pretty neat as well.

 

 

I think I'm going to laminate them and make them into bookmarks, too.  You can never have too many bookmarks, right?  :D
