About Julia

Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.

I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.

Feel free to follow and reblog!

Reading Rainbow Kickstarter in Final Hours

I feel like people have probably already heard about The Reading Rainbow Kickstarter but I wanted to bring it up again seeing as they are so close to their $5mil stretch goal and have 18hrs left. 


Seth MacFarlane is actually going to match the last million if we get there, which is kind of cool. 


In general I think bringing reading rainbow to tablets and web based is a great idea. I've never seen the existing app but if this the collateral they need than I'm glad they asked. 


In more selfish reasons, I added money to the Kickstarter today so that in addition to my mug and t-shirt I get this sweet picnic blanket. 



So help if you can. I know that when I was little I liked books more than getting read via a TV, but some people aren't as lucky to get parents that will read to them or take them to the library. That's all.


Well there also is a Book Depository 25hr sale going until 5AM EST tonight. Every half hour a new book is discounted. Free worldwide shipping.
