Beyond the Shelf

Why not get all playful this week? Just remember - it's not about winning (unless you make first place, of course).

Played
Gone Reading ... why not shop for some brilliant products for the reading lifestyle while at the same time spreading the magic of reading through funding of libraries and reading-related charities? Sounds like an awesome plan to me. Now if only they delivered to mainland Europe too, especially seeing how It Was A Dark & Stormy Night: A Game About Books! just made it on my wishlist!

Toyed
Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.
Winston Churchill

Gambled
Gambler's Book Club ... been bit by the gambling fever as much as by the reading bug? Welcome to the world's largest store which caters to both afflictions. Now, I'm not encouraging anyone to spend their lives's savings on a particular horse, but hey, if you have a thing for Poker but are short on cash, they also offer a fiction section. Why play when one can read, right?

    1. Ohhh ... thanks for telling me this! I checked their country list again and saw that they already deliver to several European countries, so I'm sure they'd be willing to add Austria too, yay!
