Yay for weekends! With all of the excitement over last weekend’s football games, Jim and I are definitely enjoying the calm before the storm. That’s right, folks. We are a divided house. Jim is a die-hard Steelers fan, and I bleed green and gold. (I even had a retainer that was green and gold. Disgusting but true.) The smack talk hasn’t been too bad this week, but as we get closer to the big game, I know it is going to get worse.
I bit the bullet and signed up on Tumblr. You can find me under “whatsheread”. Now, someone please help me figure out what to do with it?!?
Did you sign up for my Bloggiversary Giveaway? It is still open until Tuesday.
Thanks to last week’s Bloggiesta, I’ve been able to stay on top of reviews and am even scheduled through the middle of February. Blogging is so much more fun when there is no pressure to write a post the day before it is scheduled to go live! I’ve been able to finish some amazing, and not-so-amazing books this week. These include A Geography of Secrets by Frederick Reuss, The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton, Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann, Y by Bonnie Rozanski, and Beneath the Sands of Egypt by Donald Ryan. Three e-books, one audio and one hard copy in all. Look for those reviews later in February!
This week, I kept busy with reviews of The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa, American Uprising by Daniel Rasmussen, and The Death Instinct by Jed Rubenfeld. I also shared more weight loss celebrations. I tried to get Connor to update his Connor’s Corner, but alas, it turns out that he has a massive math project, for which he was given eight weeks to finish and as of last Monday still had not completed the first part of the seven-part project. He has been buys catching up and avoiding parental wrath since then.
