How to Explain Amazon’s Kindle to Charles Dickens

As a student at Cardiff School of Art and Design, illustrator Rachel Walsh was asked to create a project that would explain something modern/internet-based to somebody who lived and died before 1900. 

Walsh’s innovative idea was to take a large book and create 40 miniature books from its pages in order to explain the kindle to Dickens. The covers are recreations from real books and include Dicken’s own novels, his favourite childhood books, and some of the artist’s own.


How cool!


Nails inspired by Amanda Sun’s Ink.

Okay so it’s my first time to do watercolor (sort of) nails. I used nail polish + acetone on a white base and left my index finger white so I could draw on the branches with black acrylic and add cherry blossoms. These were easier than I thought.

Nail polish used:
Essie Bachelorette Bash
Orly White Tips

Review for Ink is on the book blog HERE. If you check out the review you’ll see a picture of the first time I tried nail art. I redid my Ink nails just to see the improvement.

As promised, here is my feels-themed giveaway! The books/series above all have one thing in common - they made me feel something. That doesn’t necessarily mean I cried but they definitely inspired some kind of emotional response in my robot-like self. They’re also some of my favourite books. Hopefully there’s a decent enough selection for you to choose from.

5 people will be sent a book of their choice from the selection above if they’re randomly selected as winners.

Please read the following:

  • To enter, like and/or reblog this post
  • You may reblog the post as many times as you like but don’t annoy your followers too much with it
  • I would prefer if you were following me, since this giveaway is a ‘thank you’ to my followers
  • This giveaway is international, as I am purchasing books via Book Depository and they have free delivery for the majority of the world. Double check that your country is included here
  • Your inbox MUST be open. I won’t be contacting anyone via fan mail
  • Winners may also choose a sequel to the books pictured above if it’s part of a series
  • Winners may choose which edition of the book they want, so long as it is paperback and under $15 (AU). The only exception is The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, which is over $20 and hardback. I’ll only be buying this for one person (if they want it) so I have enough for the other books, sorry! I just love it so much and want to be able to share it with at least one person, even if it’s expensive
  • One of the books, Alexander Altmann A01567 is only available as a prize for Australians, as it is unavailable on Book Depository. If Aussies would like this book, I will order it for you from Bookworld
  • If you’re not sure which book you’d like, I’d be happy to tell you more about them and help you pick one that suits your tastes
  • No giveaway blogs
  • If you’re uncomfortable giving me your address, don’t be. I won’t be saving it or giving it out elsewhere or anything
  • The giveaway ends August 1st 12PM AEST
  • Winners will be selected using a random number generator and have 48 hours to get back to me. I’m quite lenient on that but I would prefer if people replied ASAP so I can be organised
  • If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me

Good luck and happy reading, word shakers!


Okay so here is my giveaway! :D
These are all books that I’ve enjoyed reading or are quite popular at the moment. 

Of course there are a few rules so here they are:

  • I will be using Book Depository so this giveaway is international!
  • There will be one that will be randomly selected. 
  • If you win it would be great if you are comfortable with providing me with an address. Don’t worry I’m not a creeper.
  • Reblogs and likes count so go for it, but please don’t spam your followers.

I’m seeing a bunch of unknown books that I’ve been craving for ages on BWB for grrrrreat prices 

they’re used copies so one purchase and boom they’ll be gone

I got my paycheck yesterday 

there’s a discount on used books

damn it

we all know I’ll give in




if i had a dollar for every book i’ve bought i’d have no money because i’m pretty sure i would’ve already spent it all on books.
