Sunday Musings #41: One about bookish apps and K-drama

Mar 24, 201922 comments

Last week I found this awesome site called The Pigeonhole that helps members of book clubs read together by emailing parts of books periodically. And there are quite a number of books I have not read in their collection. Don’t you love discovering new bookish apps and sites? Is there any obscure bookish sites that you recommend?

Why am I talking about it? I wouldn’t have read The Turn of the Screw by Henry James if not for this site. Actually, I was planning to read it with a friend like a proper book club who then bailed, making it a party of one. I am not sure if I enjoyed the book but I loved waking to up to a new chapter to be read and I had the push to finish the novella in a week.

Trust me, I would not have complete or even read it if it is not for the app. Now all they have to do is add more books and I would become their die-hard fan!

On other news, I love the weather currently and don’t be surprised if I come back with a lot of beach pictures next week!

What I watched:

We watched US on the cinemas on Friday and I am stoked. I am still thinking about the plots and theories from the movie. And I should confess that I almost left scared. For sure, one of the best horror movies watched so far in 2019. 

I finally understood what the obsession about Korean drama is all about, when I started watching Marriage Contract on Netflix on Monday and the next thing I knew it was Wednesday. I have no idea one can binge so hard on a series, and I watch a lot of series.

Now that I am a convert, send in your #Kdrama fixes for me to binge! Let us talk on my #Sundaypost with #linksILike Click To Tweet

    Ah.. that’s interresting. emailing parts of books periodically?? that leaves me curious onto how this works… I assume one can’t binge-read then? 🤔

    for some reason, though I’ve certainly heard about it- I still have no clue what “us” is about xD … Seems like you had a good week ! xx

    That site sounds cool! I can see how it would help give you a push to finish a book that you’re struggling to get through. Ooh I hope you get to have some fun at the beach in the nice weather!

    Um I thought US wouldn’t be horror but I’m going to nope out from seeing that poster, LOL.

    And YAS WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE OF KDRAMAS. I’ve been sucked by the scholarly and life hole to watch but yessssssss they’re so obsessive to watch when you get started and time runs away from you.

    I got halfway through Eleanor Oliphant and quit, but I was really enjoying it! I need to pick it back up for sure.

    The only boolish app I use is Goodreads, and it’s social media, at least I consider it as that.
    I watched Us today and tbh I think it was solid, but nothing specisl. I will have to see those theories, maybe they’ll make me change my mind.

    Thanks for including my post. XOXO

    That Pigeonhole site sounds really cool. It makes me wish I had a book club to use it with. I think everyone watched Us, but me. I don’t do scary, and that picture is downright creepy. I can only imagine how terrifying the movie is.

    That “The Pigeonhole” thingy looks interesting, especially if you wanted to do a buddy read of a classic or something. Anybody fancy doing that next month?

    The pigeonhole site sounds very interesting. I’ll have to check that one out. 😉
    Isn’t it great that the weather is getting better? It’s been more Sunny here too.. I love it.
    Have a great week and happy reading!
