Discussion: What’s Your Winter Weather Survival Kit?

I recently found this image that sums up one bookstore’s idea of the perfect survival kit.


I can agree on about half the things on this list, and change/add a few. Like changing “Hot Chocolate” to “Hot Coffee or Tea,” and adding “crazy comfy comforters,” “good music,” and “lots of wifi.”

What would make your list? I’m really curious to know how you usually weather your winters. 🙂



[WTRO2] The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Handbook for Girl Geeks by Sam Maggs

Pub Date   May 12 2015

NetGalley Link-up


Fanfic, cosplay, cons, books, memes, podcasts, vlogs, OTPs and RPGs and MMOs and more—it’s never been a better time to be a girl geek. The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy is the ultimate handbook for ladies living the nerdy life, a fun and feminist take on the often male-dominated world of geekdom. With delightful illustrations and an unabashed love for all the in(ternet)s and outs of geek culture, this book is packed with tips, playthroughs, and cheat codes for everything from starting an online fan community to planning a convention visit to supporting fellow female geeks in the wild.

I just got my hands on this fantastic book and – granted, I’ve only started a few minutes ago, but… I think I love everything about it. XD I may not identify as a girl or “female,” but gender really doesn’t have anything to do with how much you love, hate, or REALLY want to read or own a book.

Expect many excited ramblings when I’m done reading this little gem.
