This is where I share some totally pointless things!
Bored? Don’t feel like reading? Here are few bookish things to spend your time on:
1. Grab a blank notebook and test yourself.
This is something I’ve always wanted to try out. I plan to get myself a blank notebook, and when I don’t feel like reading but I still want to something book-related, I can open the notebook and test myself in various ways. I can do some stuff like write down as many book titles I can in one minute, draw a map of a high fantasy world, figure out all the science-y stuff going on in a science fiction world through formulas (which I will probably never understand)… There are lots of bookish things you can do with a blank notebook.
2. Go book shopping.
Who doesn’t love book shopping? It’s something that’s become a great stress reliever for me. The feeling of walking along aisles and aisles of books feels totally awesome. New book purchases make my day–pretty new books to add to my collection!
3. Get creative–redesign a cover!
Here’s an entire jacket I redesigned for Marie Lu’s The Young Elites (it isn’t great, but I loved making it!):
4. Go through your shelves, open your books and sniff them.
5. Write fanfiction.
Because why not? I always spend hours or days rethinking how a book ended, especially if a book ended in a cliffhanger or had an open ending. So yes, I did imagine alternate endings or sort of epilogues in my head. Sometimes I wrote them down and published them on fanfiction.net. (If you do write fanfiction–link me up!)
Do you do any of these or want to try them? What other bookish activities do you do everyday?
Aimee loves being a little bookworm (okay–she doesn’t like being little). She also loves chocolates and sweets but is freaked out by the thought of possibly getting diabetes.
