Get Windswept into Love

Believe in love again

I’ve been reading Owain Glyn’s work for over two years on the read-free website Wattpad and he is amazing. This collection of his romantic sonnets will make your heart sing and revive your belief in love in all its phases. There is no artifice in this poetry. There is elegance without effort, lyrical perfection without egotism, and soul-bearing without self-pity. It is truly accessible to those who say they don’t like poetry. They will change their minds! I hope some of his other collections will soon be in print. –  Jan on October 28, 2015

I will always treasure this book

Who ever said that poetry is not for the ordinary man or woman? This beautiful collection would both lift and melt the heart of anyone fortunate enough to open it. From the first poem on I was hooked. I found it entrancing, enthralling and filled with simple yet profound emotions. I will always treasure this book. Wonderful. – Colm Herron on October 14, 2015

Sit back and enjoy 

Not normally a poetry reader I fell in love with Owain Glyn’s poems when I came across this book on wattpad. His poetry really strikes a chord. This beautiful collection is timeless and well worth your time and your pennies. – Angie on Oct. 15, 2015

Women want to read everything

21 Books From The Last 5 Years That Every Woman Should Read

The Huffington Post | By Nina Bahadur

The one struggle of being a woman who reads is that you want to read everything.  It’s easy to get overwhelmed by bestseller lists, because there just isn’t enough time in the day to read every hot new book. Between near-constant recommendations of amazing memoirs, new sequels and a terrifyingly long list of bookmarked Internet longreads, it can be stressful to choose what you should pick up next. Knowing which classics you’re missing from your reading repertoire is easy — it’s a little harder to remember what you’ve missed from three years ago.

We’ve done a little bit of the hard work for you (or maybe just increased your book stress… sorry) by pulling together a list of incredible titles from the past few years that you should add to the pile on your bedside table. These books by women are just a few of the incredible titles published recently — an exhaustive list would be hundreds of books longer. Those listed here are some of the most-discussed, thought-provoking and life-changing books from a diverse group of women writers. They make you rethink what being a feminist means, offer life advice to women of all ages, and reinforce your long-held belief that Tina and Amy should be your best friends and life coaches forever. The novels are some of the finest writing from woman authors. From lighthearted memoirs to harrowing thrillers, there’s a genre here for everyone.

Here are 21 books published in the past 5 years that all women should read>

Here’s Another Reason Not to Fear Short Attention Spans: The Slow Reading Movement

 from Ink, bits & Pixels

Earlier today I posted an argument against authors writing for shorter attention spans. I argued that attention spans weren’t actually getting shorter; instead, readers will stick with a book which interests them no matter the interruption. I still think that is a good argument, but it’s not the only one I could make.  An article… Read More »
