Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is a Sunday re-cap post started by Amanda at On A Book Bender and Tara at 25 Hour Books. It’s a chance to share our love of other blogs. The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.
Well, I think I have my blog under control. I plan on doing a post analyzing in excruciating detail all that went into my move from Blogger to WordPress. It’ll bore you to tears but because I relied on so many other’s pain in moving from Blogger to WordPress, I thought I’d add my two cents to the blogosphere.
Finally, today is literally the one year anniversary of my blog. Nope, I’m not celebrating. I suck at blogging right now, I’m not consistent, I don’t have the content I envisioned I would have and there’s so much more I want to do. So I decided I would celebrate next year. Or maybe when I’m where I want to be. One year is just a number, right? Besides, there’s so many other much cooler Blogoversaries going on right now to check out. Blogs that I admire and go to for inspiration. Just see below…
Around the Blogosphere
- My best blogger bud, Lisa (aka Silverlight) at Paranormal & Urban Fantasy Reviews just had her blog re-done by Giselle of XpressoDesigns. Yep, you know Giselle. And Giselle does beautiful work, both in her designs and typography. I love it! Lisa is having an awesome giveaway to celebrate her new look by giving away $30 worth of designs at XpressoDesigns and a book from Elizabeth Richards to a second winner. Go HERE for the fun.
- Fiktshun is celebrating her 2 year Blogoversary. Rachel of Fiktshun is one of those bloggers who puts her heart and soul into her blogs and it really shows. I admire her tenacity a ton. And I have to say, after having done her Soul Screamers Reading Challenge earlier this year, she is one of the nicest bloggers out there, bar none! You really should go check out her posts this week (well, really every week).
- Felicia at the Geeky Bloggers Book Blog is doing something really super cool this month. She’s posting everyday what books, authors, or bloggers she’s thankful for. What an awesome idea!!!
In ‘Da House
Every year I go to Kim Harrison’s book signing in Michigan. This coming January will be my fourth signing. I’m such a fan nerd that I bought the tour t-shirt (again – I have the shirt from Black Magic Sanction). Here’s what I got in the mail:
I was surprised by the pin and the swag that said, “Don’t Panic!” – 3 to go! I guess that means there’s three more Hollows books after this.
This is my e-book edition of the book haul portion of my post (yeah, it didn’t make sense to me either the first 3 times I tried to re-write that sentence so just go with me on it). Next week I’ll show all my goodies from the book signing and a very special package I got from a most awesome author. Hint, I’m reading the book right now…
Received for review (why do I keep doing this to myself?!?!)
That’s it for me this week, guys… What books made their new home at your house?
