I've finished the two profile badges (which are pretty basic and not all that fantastic)! If anyone else is a better hand at photoshop than me, feel free to make your own, and link back to here so we can see them! Also, feel free to edit the codes for the badges as you wish!

Also, you can hotlink because the images were uploaded to imgur. Unless you want to upload them to your own image hoster. :)

Let's get some more members, yeah? It's no fun having discussion posts if there's no one around to discuss things with!

What it'll look like:



This is a community is for book reviews, fanfic recs, and pretty much anything related to literature. Membership will always be open, so feel free to watch/join, but only post if you've got something worth posting!

On eBooks, eReaders, and normal books:

To be totally honest, I prefer eBooks to real books sometimes. Like, when I’m off to school and I already have to carry around thirty pounds of textbooks, and then I want to bring along a book or two to read during my free time? It’s a heck of a lot easier to just stick my nookColor or tablet in my bag than to try and cram a few more books into my bookbag. Wasn’t Borders going under anyway, before the dawn of eReaders (and the recent popularity of them)? I know the one where I live was losing business long before any sort of eReaders became popular. If you want to blame something for causing family-owned or smaller bookselling chains for going out of business, I suggest you look towards Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, and Half-Price Books. Seriously.

Not that I don’t love normal books. I like how they smell and I love how the pages feel against my fingers. I also like the weight of them (when it’s not in my bookbag!), because I can drop them without worrying about breaking a $300-ish electronic device.

Unpopular opinion is unpopular? Why can’t eBooks and normal books just live in peace and bibliophilic love together?

WE CAN HAVE BOTH AND BE HAPPY.


What's your opinion on eReaders/eBooks, normal books, and the recent closing of Borders (and local booksellers)? Agree with me? Disagree? Do you have an eReader?

I do. I have a nookColor (Barnes & Noble) and an Iconia Tab (Acer) that can double as one (as well as a tablet computer). Would you consider buying one, ever (ex. if the price went down)? Or are you a hardcore real-books-only-bitch kind of person?

This post has both fanfic recs and a book review! I feel so accomplished. This is the first book review posted to thingsoncesaid, and I hope you like it!

These recs are kind of old (there are no new, brilliantly done Supernatural fics that I can find, so if you have any, tell me), but totally worth the read (or re-read!).

Enjoy! ♥

What do you think? Have any book suggestions? Or perhaps tips for reviewing? .___. I know I'm rubbish at it, but it's fun. So.

And not even special recs. Just some basic fics that everyone everywhere who is a fan of Supernatural should read. Like. Everyone. And a warning, ahead of time: most of these are either R or NC-17, so beware!

Also. These are less summaries than me telling you to go read things because I like them; don't expect much information on the actual plot of the stories, or whether or not they're AUs, or if they've got loads of smut. Because I am lazy.
