THE RULE OF THE COFFEE SHOP By: gooduklady
28 Comments    Open  
Important Post

Since Bookrix has been revamped, we have lost some "Important Posts" - formerly known as "Stickies" here in the Coffee Shop.

For those new members who have recently arrived, we have only one rule that everyone must adhere to which is:

NO PROMOTING YOUR BOOKS.
NO LINKS TO YOUR BOOKS.
NO REQUESTING FEEDBACK ON YOUR BOOKS.

There are many other groups on Bookrix where the above criteria are welcomed. The Coffee Shop is a place where... Show more

I am so glad to review these rules again, sometimes I forget where to post things!

Paper Planes should be able to change the group pic and insert a 'cuppa joe'. I can change the pic on my group.

ᗪค౮૯ᗷᑕ८คՈคძค

I have a suitable pic for you if you want it. I'll slip it into the back of the book "Just Covers' on my profile (Looks like a cat's face). If you want it I'll put it up so you can capture it.

What it means to be investigated By: Bobby
0 Comments    Open  
Important Post

I believe if an investigation has to be there, its basis should be brought out upfront. Such messages as there may be a robbery or there may be a murder or on a smaller scale there may be a slight is not healthy and if proven wrong later it destroys everything the poor victim may have built all those years.

In Hillary's case, they opened and closed the case with little more than a little reprimand or was it that; or was it she... Show more

Why does Evil outlast good By: Bobby

Can anyone explain in layman's terms? Evil folks don't even admit they are evil though good folks note evil right away when they divert from their regular course or path. It is like when we are on a highway if we miss our exit, we know we have come out too far but evil folks keep going and rarely feel alarmed. They even go in for a Beer to make up for their mistake and feel they must be rewarded for their mistake.

Anyone want me to design website for free? By: Alan Jacob Mathew

Important Post

I was wondering if anyone of you needs a website to display your published books or write articles to engage with your followers, I can design it for free. I designed the homepage for this site https://penpencilreview.com as per the admins requirements.

I prefer authors who have at least published one book in the wide market(Amazon, Kobo.....)

All prices mentioned may vary slightly due to current exchange rate of USD with... Show more

That's really interesting! I have a number of books published on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Books-A-Million, and one or two here. I had a website with Weebly but had to let it expire (lots of medical expenses took precedence over site renewal). It was called... Show more

I want to make a Bookrix website. Best way to do?

Rookie Burwick

Do you mean a website LIKE bookrix or what?

Alan Jacob Mathew

Try using Wordpress and PeepSo Plugin with which you can create a community like BookRix with better features. It is a bit confusing but still, you can do it on your own.

Adlin T.

Hi Alan thanks.

Bobby

I would like someone to do it for me.

Alan Jacob Mathew

There are many who are good in designing these type of website. But you will have to spend like 100-200$ just for the design and extra for the hosting and design.

Different word meaning...same pronunciation. By: lazarus67

I just found out through sheer curiosity that 'paid' and 'payed' have two different meanings.

Just came across another interesting English ...what would I call it?, anomaly, grammar phenomenon? Probably both those words don't apply.
They are...Uninterested, and disinterested. Just found out they have different meanings.
Oh, the English language can be so complicated!

ᗪค౮૯ᗷᑕ८คՈคძค

Those are homophones. Homophones are words that are pronounced the same but differ in meaning, derivation, or spelling. I always found homonyms worse than them. Homonyms are words that are spelled and pronounced the same but have different meanings (like match and match etc)

ᗪค౮૯ᗷᑕ८คՈคძค

For some reason, I tried to spell them different if the meaning was different. LOL

Same name has different Spellings By: Bobby

I see same name but spelled differently in different Countries. Why is that? Alec Xander I believe is for Alexander, Josef Stalin, Joseph is Josef there. Is it that different countries as they speak they write or they want to be different. I believe there should be an International Standard decreeing that Michael shall be Michael everywhere.
In France, you cannot give a funny name to a child; in Germany too they have some such... Show more

You mean Attila the Hun; Tibor is a masculine given name found throughout Europe. There are several explanations for the origin of the name: from Latin name Tiberius, which means "from Tiber ... a River in Rome. I forget the Attila story.

When I started here eons ago,
I had given myself the nom de plume Lazarus Tiberius K.

Wrote a little bit more about my upbringing for Lenny Letter. Have any of you written an essay either on this site or another about your upbringing?

I knowwwwww... He was also like " I don't know their family! What if they're crazy! What if they don't know how to plan for a fire in the house...." Where do they come up with all these scenarios.

Why different preachers interpret Bible their own way. One says you can sprinkle water and you are Baptized, one says you must go under to be baptized, other says just take a dip yourself and you are there.

That is OK they can talk whichever it helps them. But when they don Hebrew Prayer Shawl on their shoulders, ask us to celebrate Jewish festivals, they are going too far.

Why? Jesus did it.

Rookie Burwick

I personally believe water baptism isn't required today. But, that's just my opinion. You don;t have to agree :)

Rookie Burwick

Good point, Bobby.
