Accessites and Revish

Posted by: JackP on February 7th, 2007

Two of the sites I have an interest in, Accessites and Revish have undergone some changes recently. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m one of the site graders for Accessites. At times, this has meant quite a significant investment of time from all of the graders, and because we do have other lives to lead — […]

A Bookish Meme

Posted by: JackP on January 27th, 2007

This has apparently been doing the rounds somewhat, although I’ve picked it up from Stephen Lang.
So here we are then. My thoughts on a lot of book related topics…

Having A Baby

Posted by: JackP on December 17th, 2006

I was viciously, much against my better judgement forced to go out on the beer last night, as one of my friends (actually two of my friends) had had a baby on Friday night. I’d not seen him for a while as he’d been caught by the impending-fatherhood “better-not-have-a-drink-in-case-baby-comes” theory for quite some time now, […]

Sci-Fi Meme

Posted by: JackP on November 21st, 2006

Okay, I’ve taken this from a Very True Place but am going to bend the rules slightly. Well, not so much bend them as break them, to be honest. The meme lists what are considered to be the 50 most significant SF & F books (by either Time Magazine or the Science Fiction Book Club […]

Early Reading Meme (Doing The Rounds)

Posted by: JackP on November 16th, 2006

This I got this from Stephen Lang, who got it from Kate’s Book Blog. It’s, well, it’s about early reading…
If you’re not into the book memes, you might as well stop here…

From The Stacks: A Reading Challenge

Posted by: JackP on November 12th, 2006

I came across this meme on Stephen Lang’s site (yes, it does appear I only get memes from people called Steve) who had found the From the Stacks Reading Challenge on the Overdue Books bookblog.

Another Literary Meme

Posted by: JackP on November 1st, 2006

Yes, another one. Pinched from Steve, who pinched it from … ah, bugger it. Go look on Steve’s site if you really want to chase it back.
Anyway, the rules are:

Grab the nearest book.
Open the book to page 123.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
Don’t […]

Follow that link to… the Da Vinci Truth

Posted by: JackP on October 20th, 2006

I’m presuming you all know what I mean by “follow that link”. That’s where you start on a site you definitely intended to be on, and follow a link (in this case, a commenter on someone’s blog) to read about their site. Then, when you’re on their site, you notice that they are linking to […]

Book Reviews

Posted by: JackP on October 16th, 2006

Do you read books? Do you have opinions on the books you read? Do you want to share those opinions with the rest of the world? Can you actually write a legible and coherent book review that is a bit more useful than “it’s mint!”?
If so, you might want to take a look at me […]

Books Meme

Posted by: JackP on October 7th, 2006

Okay, after me starting off the favourite songs meme and partaking in Steve’s favourite films meme and recently reading about Dan’s glass book dream review eaters site I thought maybe it was time to talk about my favourite books.
However, in order to make this a little more difificult, I’m setting up the meme in as […]
