Two Interesting "On Blogging" Discussions

My Dream Home...

Sorry for my relative absence this week but I am currently in the midst of planning a wedding, buying a home, working twelve hours days at the day job, not to mention reading so I have something to talk about here and all that eating and sleeping nonsense.

So I don't have the time to get into anything at length at the moment but there are a few interesting discussions out there which I hope to address later.

This first is Harry (of Temple Library Reviews) and his response to Mark Charan's original response to Gav's (of Next Read) question "How Many Books are Too Many?"

Gav's Original Post with Mark Charan Newton's thoughts
Harry's Response and Thoughts

I tend to agree with Harry but more on this later. It's an interesting discussion, head over there are check it out. Plus both of these blogs are definitely worth checking out in and of themselves.

The second is from recent new blogger (look at me talking like I've been here for more than 7 months), Niall (The Speculative Scotsman). He's faced his first negative review and come out from the ordeal with a few thoughts to share. I'm still thinking them over but needless to say the first bad review is a baptism for book blogging.

I think that Niall's blog sucks but thats like 101% jealousy. He's got a much better grasp on language than I do. His being an english major and my being a mechanical engineer might have something to do with it but that doesn't make it any less true.

So yeah. I'm working on some stuff (preparing a unique well-informed post takes time) and I'm working on life. And I finished Book #2 of Kay Kenyon's Entire and the Rose so on to Book 3! I may take a brief detour into something else but its definitely a series worth finishing.


  1. Well congratulations. I want you to have that dream home and the movie perfect wedding. I consider the 12 hour shifts as menacing and soul draining, but all the more power to you for managing it and reading as well. When I had the 12 hour shifts I was happy to be able to walk.

    AND yeah, I hate that Magical Scotsman and his degree. *grr* Envious as hell.

    AND Thanks for the link-up. :)

  2. Oh my. I'm really not a magical Scotsman at all, just one with loads of time on my hands since the other half started working long hours at a new job.

    Anyway, thanks for pointing the Yeti Stomper fan club in the general direction of The Speculative Scotsman, Patrick. Really looking forward to hearing what you have to say about the questions I raised when you have the time, mate.

    Also, I'm of the opinion that seven months in the blogosphere makes you properly entrenched, my Yeti friend. Of course, coming from a single monthling...

  3. great post

    nice information you have provided dude thanks....

  4. I think your working hard please take some nice vacation in peaceful place it would be a relax all your worries and congrats happy married life
