The happy dance is scientifically proven to be beneficial to your health. Or at least your fangirl tendencies.

Lifting weights at the gym just became superfluous.

Top 3 Reasons to Choose an E-reader Over Physical Books
Unexpected delays, they happen. The solution? A nearly unending supply of books.

Covert ninja ability to read That Book I Love That I'd Never Ever Read in Public in public and still keep face.

Your back will thank you.



  1. Um. This is truly adorable and I love it. You are oh so right about everything. I do like the muscles books can give you, but also the fact that you are not breaking your back when going on a trip. Both is best!

  2. Oh my goodness!  This idea was incredibly funny!  I literally laughed out loud on the plane scenario!!  Love it!  I appreciate your artistic skills....they mimic mine and so they are AWESOME!

  3. OH MY GOSH! LOVE THESE! Girl, you got some drawin' skills. :)

  4. I love this!!!!  And you are entirely correct on all accounts!

  5. Your drawings are amazing! :)  I love this post.  

  6. Great post! Love your cute drawings! And I totally agree! "Real" books are GREAT. I didn't want an e-reader at first, now I love my Kindle. :) And now I can read steamy books at public. Yay~

  7. Haha, thanks!  I will always and forever prefer physical books, but there are perks to both.

  8. Thanks so much! I'm glad it made you laugh. :) My artistic skills are totally minimal, but I'm happy you enjoyed them!  I'll definitely check out your TTT, too.

  9. I feel the same way! I finally broke down and bought my Nook this past summer. I will always prefer "real" books, but I love my Nook.  And hooray for steamy books!

  10. Ohh, this is awesome! I totally agree. I still love paperbacks, because I can put them on my shelves, but e-readers are so much easier to bring on vacation and you always have enough to read when you finish a book :)


  11. New follower! I loved this post! Totally original. Loved your drawings!

  12. This was the cutest post! I don't have an eReader yet - but the portability is the number one reason I might get one. The other is the free & very reasonably priced books available.

  13. This may just be the best thing I've seen all week. It's made of pure win, and I LOVE the illustrations. All these reasons, are of course, SO TRUE.

  14. Thanks!  Funnily enough, the muscles one actually came up in my Shakespeare class today! My professor was getting on to one of my male friends who never brings his book (The Complete Works of Shakespeare) to class because it's too heavy, and he basically said lugging around this book will give you awesome muscles.  I wanted to be like HEY, SEE, I SPOKE THE TRUTH.

  15. Haha, thanks!  My first thought was Pride and Prejudice, but "universally" and "acknowledged" did not fit on the e-reader screen without making them infinitesimally tiny.  So I went with HP!  I figured it was a good choice. :)

  16. Thank you so much. :)  I will definitely stop by yours!

  17. Agreed! I will always prefer physical books, but I love my Nook.  It's definitely handy.

  18. This is really cute!! Haha, and super true :)
