What I Do When I’m Not Reading (21 Hobby List Ideas)

I love to read. I love building my book collection more. But, I do a lot more than just thumbing through pages endlessly. I thought it would be fun to share with you what I do when I’m not reading and also provide you some hobby list ideas I came up with. It’s nothing original but it will be a mix of what I like to do and some things I would like to do.
When I’m not reading, I like to be outside. I love to go on walks, get in the car and go somewhere, swim, hang out with my boyfriend, draw/paint, and listen to music. My boyfriend and I joke that I’m like a dog because of how much I like to go on walks and get in the car to go places. I think it’s hilarious, but really who doesn’t like to get outside at least some of the time?

The Best Dad Jokes That Actually Made Me Laugh

The best dad jokes ever are the ones that are super corny or the ones that are so dumb and obvious you can’t help but laugh. The worst that can happen when listening to one of these jokes is that you roll your eyes or shake your head a little. I love corny jokes and I personally think you can’t be a dad unless you have mastered the art of dad jokes. But why not give your dad some pointers, or save them for yourself when you become a dad? In light of Father’s Day, I wanted to step away from books for a moment and share with you what I consider to be the best Dad jokes for fathers day

Unforgettable Book Quotes That You Need To Know

Hello, fellow bookworms! I don’t know about you but when I read a book, some things just stick. I love book quotes; especially unforgettable book quotes.

SMS Novels:-Have You Heard Of Them-Featured Image

SMS Novels: Have You Heard Of Them?

Put simply, they are interactive books. Stories are restructured into text messages. You can connect with authors and actors and engage in conversation where you are the main character. It is an entirely new way of story telling and I can’t believe i am only hearing about it now. What is really cool is there are actually two ways to do this. The first is storytelling through text messages as I have just described. The second way you can engage in an SMS novel is through live-roleplay. Think of it like an audio-book but far more interactive.
