Search Terms

is crivens a character in a book
Och, nay! “Crivens” do be an exclamation used by the Pictsies in the Tiffany Aching books by Terry Pratchett.

why does the letter k show up in charlaine
Because a series of mysteries starring the telepathic waitress Soopie Staphouse just wouldn’t be the same.

wrap up book
I go for used padded envelopes, or failing that, bubble wrap and brown paper and lots of tape.

why do authors subtitle their books “a novel”
Oh, god, do not get me started. Although, the general consensus is that it’s much more often the decision of the publishers than of the authors themselves.

when its age appropriate to say crap
I swear like a sailor, as does my entire family, so I am entirely the wrong person to ask. (Helldamnfart!)

guy cake
All I can do with this is link to this hilariously disturbing CakeWrecks post.

how to keep a bookshelf from sagging
Store your books on the floor instead?

the secret book blogs
Well, I can’t just *tell* you about them, can I?

    No problem. It was a pleasure to visit your blog. Your reviews are great! :)

  2. October 2, 2009 3:49 am

    lol. Soopie Staphouse doesn’t have the same ring to it, no :P

  3. October 2, 2009 4:47 am

    That must have taken you a lot of work to link to all of your commenters!

    And I actually laughed out loud at ‘Soopie Staphouse’

  4. October 2, 2009 7:47 am

    Huh, good question! Never thought to wonder why “a novel” is put on the covers of books. It does seem a bit redundant…

    Great search terms! Hope October is great for you!

  5. October 2, 2009 7:49 am

    Wow, I can’t imagine trying to put together a list of commenters…

    I’m off to see your post about “a novel” because that irritates me, too. I imagine that’s nearly always, if not always, the publisher’s decision (author has little say about the title and look of a book), and I don’t understand why they do it.

    I love the name Soopie Staphouse! I just got my first one (with a k, darn) and when I read it, I know I’ll be having an extra laugh the whole time calling her Soopie!

    (And the guy cakes? eueueueueueu)

    Your search terms and responses always bring a smile to my face. You always get the fun ones. ^-^

    I can’t see books that get ‘a novel’ as subtitle without thinking of you either nowadays… Bemuses me quite a bit.

    You made me giggle with Soopie Staphouse!

  9. October 2, 2009 6:08 pm

    Poor Soopie!!! I love your search terms. I never get good ones.

  10. October 2, 2009 10:36 pm

    So funny! You’re right – Soopie Stackhouse just doesn’t quite cut it, does it?

  11. October 3, 2009 4:23 pm

    So fun!

  12. October 3, 2009 11:44 pm

    Heehee I always look forward to these wrap-up posts. I wanna read Terry Prachett now! And, crap is about the mildest word you could use as a substitute for something more profane…

    And, hey, I’m starting to get some pretty funny search terms too, like “doing homework in my bath”, lots of “yikes” for some reason, “she knew her nature”, “Welcome to my blog witches” :) so vastly entertaining…

    Love the funny search terms. I’m kind of scared to click on the guy cake link, though.
