Applying for jobs sucks. Cover letters suck the most. Yes, just let me ramble on trying to convince you that my almost exclusively plant biology based work experience is relevant to your immunology lab.

Hello! I have this kinda cool project going on right now called The Tumblr BookCon Journal and I've been trying to find bloggers who love books who might be interested! It would mean a lot to me if you checked it out, I tagged the post with all the information on it as "The Tumblr BookCon Journal" so if you get the chance, it would be super cool of you to look at it maybe? Thank you :)

Lindsay and Nella discuss Cinder by Marissa Meyer as they look for inspiration in YA.


In Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Cornelius Fudge tells the Prime Minister that the previous one “tried to throw him out the window.” HBP is set in 1996, the PM was John Major. Before him it was Margaret Thatcher.

Word of the Day: Palimpsest

I’m reading Hild by Nicola Griffith and for once an English word I wasn’t familiar with came up:

"However, as a palimpsest…”

"…Well, as a palimpsest it could be worth as much… the skins of two lambs or one particularly small calf.”

pg. 105 

pa-limp-sest

noun

  1. :writing material (as a parchment or tablet) used one or more times after earlier writing has been erased.
  2. : something having usually diverse layers or aspects apparent beneath the surface.

The first definition is appropriate here.

Q
What's your favorite genre?

If I really had to narrow it down the winner would probably be Urban Fantasy. Some of my favorite books are American Gods by Neil Gaiman, Tithe by Holly Black, and things like Sixty-One Nails by Mike Shevdon and they all fall under Urban/Low Fantasy.
