I Made A Manga(Fox) Downloader!

You must be thinking I’ve forgotten all about this blog ๐Ÿ˜€ Well that’s hardly the case! I’ve been dying to read some good books, and review them. But duty calls! I’m in my final year of Undergraduate studies, and even though I’m not really working hard on anything, somehow I find myself harried and devoid of free time. That doesn’t help with stress, nuh-uh.

One thing that does keep me calm, however, is theย other kind of geek side to me. And so I ended up making a MangaFox Downloader which – you guessed it! – downloads manga chapters for free from the manga-hosting sire, MangaFox.me. And you guessed it right – I’m a Computer Science and Engineering undergrad ๐Ÿ˜€

You can find the tiny file (only about 20kB) for free here:ย http://www.4shared.com/file/vlF4bcCK/MangaFox_Downloader.html

The how-to instructions (with screenshots) and more information about this version of the downloader here!

Why did I go to lengths creating this program?? You can find about those reasons here:

Since it’s obvious the program might have some bugs, I’d appreciate your feedback… and welcome your support!! So do drop a line! ^_^

Here’s a peek into how it looks like… And yes, I’m aย huge Chihayafuru fan ๐Ÿ˜€

1000 page views before the month ends?

I randomly checked The Book Hog’s stats and saw that I had 696 page views till now . And I’d hit the 700 mark today (probably). So even though it doesn’t mean that 700 people reached my site, it does mean people all over the world cared to come over ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s such a happy thought! So I had an idle and ridiculous thought: would the blog hit the thousands page-view mark before it turned a month old?

Maybe it is a ridiculous thought (most probably it is). I have no idea what a respectable traffic for a book blog is. And moreover I haven’t reviewed many books in the first place – so ย ย my posts won’t turn up so frequently in Google searches. So what is a good threshold? Even then, I don’t care. It’s just a fancy, that I’d like to know The Book Hog was accessed a thousand times in its first month of existence ๐Ÿ™‚

Can it happen? Well to make sure of that, I sure have to write more reviews ๐Ÿ™‚ Yay!

This one seems pretty inspiring ๐Ÿ™‚

Ever After is out!!

Thank you folks for keeping visiting and liking my posts even though they became irregular because of exams. (Or truthfully, mangas ๐Ÿ˜€ )

I get this warm and fuzzy feeling of satisfaction every time I get those notifications… *happy sigh*

However, this post isn’t about me… This is to scream (about 1-2 days late depending upon time zones) that Kim Harrison‘s Ever After is out! The awesome-est Hollows book yet is out there for everyone else to enjoy! YAY!! It’s doubly special for me this time since the book is the first ARC I ever received… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the link to the review I wrote for the ARC:ย https://thebookhog.wordpress.com/2013/01/01/book-review-ever-after-hollows-11/

This book is just so adorable!! *does a happy dance*

My e-ARC expired ๐Ÿ˜ฆ However it just means that I’ll go and get the real deal ๐Ÿ™‚ Or since I already know the story should I wait for the mass-market edition?? o.O Any suggestions? Help me out!!

 

Book Review: Point of Retreat

Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Point of Retreat -Colleen Hoover

I loved it I loved it
I butterflying loved it
Not just because I hoped to
Not just because I wanted to
BUTย because it was life
And in the end it is all there is.

I loved it because it had will
I loved it because it had Will
And Lake
And Gavin and Eddie
Because sometimes friends make up family
Because friends make up life
And in the end it is all there is.

I loved it because it had will
I loved it because it had Will
And his POV
I got to know him even more
I got to love him ever more.
You know when you meet someone like him
You know it’s forever

Not twenty five and parents of two
Tell me if you won’t break down
Tell me if YOUR life wouldn’t intrude
Their’s did, yet didn’t
They faced life
They accepted it
They got accepted.

You ask what was the point of this book.
Well I loved it more thanย Slammed
And I don’t give a flying Butterflyย if you think I’m mad
Sometimes a Butterflying kiss in the end isn’t enough
Ask Sherry about it
Ask Julia about it.
Go ask them and see if they give you
A flying butterfly.

I loved it I loved it
I butterflying loved it
Look, Colleen Hoover
You had me slamming
Yeah this is me slamming
For the very first time
For the first butterflying time
I haven’t cursed so much in my whole life
But now I know when life goes wrong
I’ll be able to look it straight in its eye
And say BUTTERFLY you

Thank you, Colleen Hoover
For giving us
Slammed

And Point of Retreat
For giving us Lake
And Will
And Eddie
And Gavin
And Kel
And Caulder
And Julia
And Sherry
And Kiersten
For giving us a wonderful story to root for
A few more beautiful hours in my life
Because in the end it is all there is.
