Talking Between Reads (TBR): The End is Near

Posted November 20, 2017 by Jennifer in Talking Between Reads | | 18 Comments

 

December 31, 2017 The Book Nympho will be closing up shop. I have thought about this for over a year (almost closed down in December 2016). While I have loved blogging over the years, it’s time to move on. I miss being just a reader. By ‘just a reader’ I mean someone who reads for enjoyment without the pressure to review and promo books. I will still be around on social media (Twitter & Instagram). I will also still share my thoughts on the books I read on Goodreads but on a smaller scale.

I know Jonetta will still be around on Goodreads as well. Anne will still be blogging over at her brand new blog, Books of My Heart. The blog is already up so head over and follow her!

We have enjoyed blogging and would like to say thanks to all our followers. Without you guys we would be “talking” to ourselves. Also a big thanks to all the authors, narrators and publishers we have worked with over the years. You guys make the books happen so we can read (or listen) and enjoy them.

Last but not least I want to thank Jonetta, Anne and Amanda. I started the blog in March of 2011 and you guys have been great additions and I’ve loved getting to know you guys over the years.

 


Talking Between Reads (TBR): Top 5 Beach Listens

Talking Between Reads (TBR): Top 5 Beach Listens

Posted June 5, 2017 by Jennifer in Giveaway, Talking Between Reads | 7 Comments

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics.   June signals two things to me. Summer and audiobook month. So why not put the two together?! You may have heard of the term “beach read” and like me you might have wondered what makes a book a “beach read”. When I looked the term up I found things like “easily digestible”, “happy endings”, “fun and fast to read”, etc. Some people might say a beach read is a fluffy read. I think of them as fun and entertaining. I’m not a huge fan of the beach (sand, hot, birds, other people’s kids) […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR): How I Rate a Book

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics.   Ratings are always talked about in the book community between readers, bloggers, publishers and authors. There’s been a long debut about 3 star ratings; are they good, or are they negative. We’ve decide to break down how and why we rate a book. Our views may be the same or different but they are what they are. We can agree to disagree. This post is not meant as negative, just for information and conversion purposes.   Jennifer If you know me, know I do not give out many 5 stars. Why? I […]

  Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics.   Rantings of a Reading Addict posted recently The TBR Book Tag and it looks fun and we all need to work on our TBR piles so let’s see how the ladies here at The Book Nympho answered the tag.   1. How do you keep track of your TBR Pile? Anne:    I use Goodreads shelves.  I have a few types of shelves. One is a list of genres, so I can find a book in a particular genre. Another type of shelf tells me where / how I got the book […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR): Kink on a Walmart Budget

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics. Kink on a Walmart Budget I love a fine BDSM romance. Reading the genre is a fun and safe way for someone to “experience” the “lifestyle” in a fictional way. But often the guy/Dom is a billionaire or at least has a huge . . . bank account. He often lives in a big city like New York where clubs seems to be around every corner. What about the average Joe who has a kink or two. How does he explore his kinks and need for a submissive living on a Walmart budget? What if […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics. Marketing a Book as FREE via Kindle Unlimited is my biggest pet peeve at the moment. What exactly is Kindle Unlimited? It is a new service that allows you to read as much as you want, choosing from over 600,000 titles and thousands of audiobooks. You can read on any device. It’s available for $9.99 a month and you can cancel anytime. Why is my pet peeve? Look at the description of KU. IT COSTS $9.99 A MONTH. What the hell about that screams FREE? Not a damn thing.   I wondered about the […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics.   Here’s another book tag. With cooler weather and Ho Ho Ho Read-a-thon just around the corner I thought the Coffee Book Tag would be a great fit for this month.     BLACK: NAME A SERIES THAT’S TOUGH TO GET INTO BUT HAS HARDCORE FANS. Jennifer – In Death by J.D. Robb. I’ve not started because of the number of books in the series. Jonetta – The Hollows by Kim Harrison. I’ve read 5 books and am struggling.  (Jennifer – WHAT?!) Anne   – Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward.  I can’t get […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics.   I keep running into these fun Book Tags so expect to see more of these for TBR in the following months. (Hey they are fun and take almost no time to write. Schoolwork is keeping me busy. LOL) I ran across this a WHILE back, like over a year ago at The Book Vixen and it looked like fun, so I invited the ladies to do it with me.   Do you get sick while reading in the car? Jennifer: I get sick in the car unless I’m driving so no […]
