May Book Haul!

Hello lovely readers! It's that wonderful time of the week again! I'm totally excited to show you guys the awesome books that I got in, so sit back and enjoy my fave vlog of the week! ;)

** Quick note: I start out by talking a bit about the books I'm currently reading, so if you want to skip that, go to around minute 4:08...

ALSO! I will do my best to respond to everyone who comments this week-- I wasn't able to get back to many people last weekend due to a very busy schedule.

    Once Upon a Book Haul

  31. Looks like a great batch of books this week! I'll have to stop by later to watch your vlog, since hubby is currently playing a video game and I can't find my headphones =(

    Oh, and just for the record, I don't think that "book hauls" are plagiarism. She may have started the IMM meme, but that shouldn't give her the rights over any other book haul meme. Maybe if someone was using a variation on the mailbox theme, but one person can't possibly claim ownership of every "here's what I got this week", can they?

    Here's my book haul:

    1. THANK YOU!!! Haha I thought that was absolutely ridiculous-- it's like saying, so-and-so was the first book blogger to make the color red popular, so now any book blogger who uses the color red is copying or "plagiarizing" or whatever. It's not like filming a video of stuff you got is some original idea, and it's been done for a LONG time-- waaaayyy before IMM or probably even book blogging was in existence. The ONLY way it would be copying/plagiarizing is if your meme followed the exact same name or expression as IMM, but it's too general of a thing to have any one person lay claim to it.

      Jeez. People can be so flipping ridiculous.

      SIDE RANT: It's midnight and I had to start up my computer JUST to reply to this because my iPhone is a POS and even WITHOUT autocorrect on it's a total bitch to type ANYTHING.

      Melissa, you're awesome, and I'm so glad you loved Article 5 :)

      Love ya!
