How To Make Origami Bookmarks

How To Make Origami Bookmarks It is always useful to have a bookmark at hand when you are reading. Bookmarks are so useful because not only do they keep your page, but they do it without damaging the spine of your book.

Online Libraries vs Real Libraries

      Online Libraries vs Real Libraries Here at The Book Corner we love all libraries online or not, and we decided we would put up a list of pros and cons for using either of these library options. We decided that for the point of the list, we would use our favourite online library, the open library, as the company example. Pros to using the open library  1. The open library is online so there doesn’t need to be an opening or closing time. So if you want to borrow a book in the middle of the night, then as long as you have wifi, you can 2.The Open library is completely free, as many real libraries are not. All you have to do is make a free account and you will have hundreds of books at your fingertips. 3.On the open library you can borrow a book for between an hour - fourteen days and you can return it early if you want to.

The Story With Classics

The Story With Classics Classics are books that can often seem like an intimidating read before you begin reading. A classic is a book that has been around for quite some time, but is still a very popular read.  Many people feel pressured to read classic books because they think that they are the kind of books that their parents or teachers want them to read. There are many things about classics that make them such good books, but there are also some things that make classics intimidating and sometimes difficult to read. We decided to make a list that takes you through the high points and low points of classic books today. High points A book has to be very popular to become a classic, so all classics are in genres that many people have been [and still are!] enjoying it.. Classics usually have strong characters who make good choices, and, when they do get into bad situations, they get through them together while each person puts the work in. For these reasons and more, the characters ar

Our Favourite Book Logging Websites

Here is a list of our favourites and the reasons why we like them Goodreads     Image source Goodreads is a website where you can log the books you have read, the books you are currently reading and the books you want to read.

Our Review of Goodreads

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Image source Goodreads is one of our all-time favourite book-related websites. It truly covers all of our bookish needs, from keeping track of our books to connecting with other like-minded readers. Because of this, we decided to put together a list of pros and cons to using the Goodreads website. What is Goodreads? Goodreads is a website (and app) that helps you track the books that you are reading, the books you want to read and the books you have already read.  You can set yearly challenges and see how well you can do on them.  You can write reviews about books you have read and see what other people say about the books you are thinking of reading.  You can also add your friends (if they have Goodreads), and see what they’ve been reading. And much, much more... Pros Image source It’s completely free! For us, this is the biggest pro, as paying for Goodreads would mean fewer reviews from other members and less chance of get
