Bunbury My name is Heidi, and I am an aspiring librarian and bookseller.  One of my primary passions in life is literacy and finding the right book for every reader.  You are welcome to equate me to your favorite book-pushing hero, be it Lucien, Giles, Batgirl, or the wonderful bibliovangelist who placed just the right book in your hands and fostered your love of reading.  Bunbury in the Stacks is my platform to talk about all things book related in whatever manner I deem fit.

What is Bunburying?

Bunburying noun (uncountable)

1. (humorous) Avoiding one’s duties and responsibilities by claiming to have appointments to see a fictitious person

For me, when I have “an appointment”, what I am really doing is reading, knitting, and drinking tea.  Playing with my cat, gaming, watching T.V. or movies, and blogging.

Salute Your Shorts

Salute Your Shorts at Bunbury in the Stacks

Salute Your Shorts is a weekly (ish) feature here at Bunbury in the Stacks highlighting and reviewing short stories and novellas.  I love shorts, and feel as if they don’t get much attention around the blogosphere.  While this is a local feature, I realize that others out there enjoy shorts as well, as such, anyone is welcome to join in at any time!  If you’re interested in making your own Salute Your Shorts post, just shoot me a link via comments or Twitter, and I’ll include you in a roundup!

With Bated Breath

With Bated Breath is a regular feature here at Bunbury in the Stacks where I feature books I’ve recently added to my TBR, whether they be up-and-coming, or books from the past that have recently been brought to my attention.  Inspired by Breaking the Spine’s Waiting on Wednesday and The Book Smuggler’s On the Smuggler’s Radar, I use With Bated Breath as an opportunity to talk about books I’m excited for, and also to feature the outlets that led me to them.

I also vlog!  More recent book hauls, book chats, #FridayReads posts, or any other bookish topic that deserves some vloggy goodness.

Retro Friday

Retro Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Angie at Angieville and focuses on reviewing books from the past. This can be an old favorite, an under-the-radar book you think deserves more attention, something woefully out of print, etc. Everyone is welcome to join in at any time!
