Bike Dads

I always wanted to be a dad who rode a bike. Every morning I would watch with envy as the fathers in my neighborhood tore down the street on their Trek’s and Schwinn’s. 1,486 more words

Swimmer's Ear

For some weird reason, there is no room 512 in Jon’s building. There is a 501, 502, 503 and so on. There is a 516, 515, 514 and 513, which is his room. 814 more words

Book Review

Lindsay | Bookboodle reblogged this on bookboodle and commented:

imageReally interesting blog here from Ishita on 3 star reviews! I don't see a 3* rating as bad, for me it was an ok enjoyable read but not one I'd necessarily shout from the roof tops about and would donate rather than keep on the shelf. I don't use a rating system other than on Goodreads but I'm aware other bloggers do and sometimes I mention in my review what Goodreads rating I gave, and sometimes I don't. It's not always about the star rating. What are your thoughts on 3* reviews?
