I have yet to experience this but I know that one of my friend’s books is published through Amazon so I wonder if her book is going to be taken off….

Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

I logged on to Goodreads today (my favorite book site of all time), and as I was perusing some of the books I’ve recently read in order to begin writing their reviews, I came across a startling notice about one of the books I just finished:

“This edition is in danger of being removed from Goodreads. Will you rescue it? learn more”

So, of course I wanted to learn more because I had no idea what was happening.  This is what I learned, word for word, from Goodreads:

“Dear ABookVacation,

At Goodreads, we make it a priority to use book information from the most reliable and open data sources, because it helps us build the best experience for our members. To that end, we’re making a major change.

On January 30, Goodreads will no longer display book information that comes from Amazon.

This includes data such as titles, author names, page…

Midterms/Finals


So this week and next week is pretty much all tests and midterms for me, and I must say,  so far they’ve been pretty boring and easy. With the exception of the Pre-calc midterm that I did without a calculator. But there is still the AP Chem test that I have to take so that should be interesting.

Other than that all I have is a contest for Figment which ends on the 25th. They are fun contests, you need an account to be able to participate and a few friends to read through your stuff and heart it for you. I find them fun and entertaining, if you go on the contests page you can go vote for some of them once you get an account.

Well back to studying for stuff that I don’t have to study for… Hm… I should probably go write my letter of meta-cognition… But first I’m going to self-lessly promote my roleplaying site that I’m on… go to the side column and click on the little picture with the WM on it… it should say War Mage when you click on it. It’s fun and Tamora Pierce-y

Sherlock


So my friend has been ever so helpful in getting me hooked on yet ANOTHER tv show. This one? Sherlock. It is so amazing, even though I’ve only seen four of the six episodes. Yeah, well this is going to be interesting, now to watch the rest and wait for the new season. Yay sites that let me watch things at all hours of the night.

In other news, we have also been watching Sanctuary which is an amazing show as well, though it gets more hilarious and fanfiction worthy after you get to Nikola Tesla’s role in the show. Yes I said Nikola Tesla, who is played by the magnificent Jonathon Young, and is just awesome. But by all means don’t take my word for it you should go watch it for yourself and fall in love with Teslen like I did. (yes for those of you who know what that means, I do ship Teslen. I also ship Henry/Tesla though I ship Teslen more)

Well for now time to go back to puttering around on the internet. Those of you reading this go watch Sherlock or Sanctuary, and no like always I was not paid for promotion so get that out of your head right now. Hm… perhaps I shall also write fanfiction like my friend is currently doing…. yup sounds good to me….
