The Wonder Forest Ap: BlogGo

So there is this crazy, wonderful, amazing lady on the blogosphere that just happens to be know as The Wonder Forest. She also happens to have created probably the most important app for a blogger.
BlogGo for Blogger
BlogGo (taken form thewonderforest.com)

I haven't downloaded it because I don't have any apple items but I am pretty sure this will change the world of blogging, especially when you are away from a computer.
  Dana was even nice enough to put a little video of what it does and how to use it. 
Although, I haven't played with it yet I have heard great things about this wonderful app. I just wish I had an iphone now, especially after seeing that video. 
Go get yours now!!

Campus Book Rentals

I was just realizing how hard it is to save money while being a full time student. Rent, water, electricty,  not to mention the cost of going to school! Its seems the most expensive past is those textbooks that hardly get used (or at least to me). What can you do to help lower the cost?
Easy. Watch below.

Some perks renting from them:
-Offers Rent Back Service on YOUR old textbooks
-Save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-Free shipping both ways (hey hey!)
- Can highlight in the textbooks (that's what I like best)
-Flexible renting periods
-Donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented

Operation Smile is partner with CampusBookRentals.com. 
They hope to spread the joy of smiling to children. 
Please check them out, spread the word and if you can donate.

Book Ends March 2013

A monthly post about what books I have read.  Read January's HERE.

Summary: Cole receives a one-year banishment to a remote Alaskan island. There, he is mauled by Mysterious white bear of Native American legend. Hideously injured, Cole waits for his death His thoughts shift from from Anger to humility. To survive, he must stop blaming others and take responsibility for his life. Rescuers arrive to save Cole's but it is the attack of the Spirit Bear that may save his soul.

My thoughts: Very Emotional story. I was touched at this whole book and think this be read in schools. I also hope that circle justice is real and in practice because I believe that it would give kids/teens a chance. 

Rate: 5 stars

Summary: Meggie's father Mo has an interesting talent: when he reads aloud, things, and sometimes people, come out of their stories and into the real world! But now the evil Capricorn wants to use Mo's talents to bring himself great wealth and power. Then Meggie discovers that maybe Mo isn't the only one who can read things to life.     

My thoughts: I really enjoyed how this ended but it took awhile to get there. Some chapters seemed to go on and on. It was really interesting though. I love how at the beginning of every chapter Cornella quoted something from another book/poem.  

Rate: 3 stars


Summary: Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of INKHEART, the book whose characters became real. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the tale has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval world of his past. Distraught, Farid goes in search of Meggie, and before long, both are caught inside the book, too. But the story is threatening to evolve in ways neither of them could ever have imagined.

Currently on page: 412

So, as you can see, I failed. I didn't read hardly any books last month.  I had to pay off my library before I could get more could check out any books, so I have been mostly reading what I had at the house already. (My moms kinda like a book hoarder, in a good way.) Once I got my library card paid off, it was on. I grabbed like 5 before I forced myself to hold back. Next month's link up will have TONS more books. Just wait and see. ;]

What have you been reading? What type are your favs? 
Do you post about books? If so, share the post. If not, you should.
