If you love to read and you want to blog about it, DO IT. Don’t worry about how many people are following you, or how many books you’re reading, if you post a review for a book or not, if you buy books this month or not. We’re supposed to do this for fun and to relax. We’re supposed to do it for ourselves.
Lois Lane will be getting the YA novel treatment come January from author Gwenda Bond. The book, titled Fallout, is from Capstone/Switch will focus on young Lois Lane just starting out in Metropolis. The 304 page book will be released in January. Will Superman appear? Check out the blurb below to see.
Hello bookish Tumblr community :)
I was thinking about something lately. I never see guys around here. And I’m wondering why that is… Are they shy? Do they not want people to know they read? Is reading considered strictly a female hobby? Cause, if that is so, it’s wrong! Books are for everyone, that’s the beauty of them.
So, we here at books-and-cookies, magic-in-every-book and readaroundtherosie have decided to start a campaign to find the male readers on tumblr and get them out of their shells and get them involved!
If you’re a guy and you love to read, let us know! Make a text post, post a selfie, send us a message, submit something and let the world know that guys enjoy books and reading too! And, don’t forget to tag it, so everyone can see it: #guyslovebookstoo
And reblog away everyone, so we can find them and make them feel part of the community :)
spread the word :)

Turns out I returned Dirty Daddy to the library before my vacation, so I’ll have to write a review with an online picture, so I’m writing this post to remind myself to do that after work!!
