Wearing the books out...

Of course, books aren't just for reading, hiding, cutting up, and taking photos of. You can also adorn yourself with them, in all sorts of formats. So here's a few examples of some snazzy book-based wearables.

Lets start with the rings.

Mini book + ring = cool.

Mini book + secret compartment ring = awesome.

And of course, you can always go for a necklace book. Extra geek points if you choose this one.

Would you prefer your books to be a bit closer to you? Say, on your wrist? Here, you can either have the books in their mini entirety, or as a section of a full size one...

 Or perhaps you'd like them on your ears?

And you can make sure your mobile phone doesn't unloved, with this phone charm.

But you'll be needing to keep your body well clothed too. How about a nice top or two?

Can't leave your feet out though, can we? How about some comic-covered high heels?

But watch out: it's still not quite warm enough to be venturing out without a nice, cosy scarf on, is it?

A ladyfellowing

Well, in January this year, I submitted my Fellowship portfolio, and heard in April that it had been successful, making me now officially a Ladyfellow and able to add FCLIP after my name, yay!

Me registration fees were paid in September 2015, so technically it took less than 18 months from registration to submission. However, that doesn’t include the good few months before that, preparing my thoughts, talking to my mentor, and plotting out just how I would Get This Damn Thing Done, so realistically, it was more like a 2 year process.

So, how big a task was it? In a “dear god, what have I done” moment, I totalled up the word count of all items in the portfolio, and it came to approximately 30,000 words.

This does not make me happy! I am not an old fashioned person who expects a book to be a physical object - I have both a well-stuffed Kindle and a rapidly read-and-returned collection of charity shop purchased books at home. Physical books are merely containers for the exciting contents, and the contents work as well digitally as they do physically. What I don’t have in my home however is any audiobooks. Because I hate the damn things.

So I thought I’d put some audiobooks on in the car so the time was a little bit more productive. Nope: it didn’t work for me. I was focused on the driving/traff…
