Authors for the Philippines: An online auction to raise money for the Red Cross’s Typhoon Haiyan Appeal)

If you’re a book lover and have book lovers for friends, you may want to link them to Authors for the Philippines. You can bid on signed books from authors around the world to help raise funds for victims of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.

Here are my picks:

There’s so much more good stuff in there so go browse the whole page if you can. :)

So, you’ve just read a book and you want to find one just like it. I suggest using Bookish’s search bar. It brings up books in the same genre, and the links to buy them through the site and other places online. The site is also set so you can add books to your virtual shelves, kind of like Goodreads. It’s in no means a perfect place to go, but it’s pretty neat. All around, it’s a great place to find new books!

Summer/beach read recs anyone? ⇢

Sure we’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover but I can’t help that I’m a sucker for nice and clean covers. I’m currently reading Attachments and it’s good so far. I’ll read eleanor & park next and based on the reviews, I’m going to end up liking it as well. Fangirl won’t be out until September but it’s the book I’m most excited about out of Rainbow Rowell’s releases. I mean a book about a fangirl? That’s my story.

I love thrift shopping for clothes and shoes, animated films, cats, libraries and bookstores, french fries, burger steak, this guy, and men in suits. Why hey-insom(n)ia?
