The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.
Are your stockings hung by your chimney with care? You know who’s coming… yay!!
This weekend I’m finishing up my Christmas cookie baking. On Friday, my son and I had a field trip for his school and it was awesome to meet all his teachers in person. You may know I homeschool Jake but that’s kind of a misnomer. He does online school so he has many teachers. We see them on video cam and we talk to them on the phone. Now we actually know what they look like in real life 🙂 Teachers are my heroes!
Are you still stuck for last minute gift ideas? I have some inspiration for you…
ThinkGeek.com – I love their site for crazy, geeky gifts. You can probably still get your gift in time if you order before noon on Sunday ET or at the VERY latest Monday by noon ET with super express shipping.
uncommongoods.com – I buy gifts for my family all the time from this site. This year I got my husband and mother-in-law Christmas presents from this site. When you buy from them, they donate to a charity you pick.
Hot Topic – Yep, that store in the mall! I’ve actually hit that store twice this season for gifts for my mom, my hubs, and my SON! Hand it to my family for quirky addictions to weird socks, Fallout 4, and retro games like Kirby and Zelda 🙂 I actually picked up myself a Totoro t-shirt – yay! They finally licensed their stuff!!!
I’m kind of bummed.
The website, WeGiveBooks.org is closing down it’s digital library as of December 31st, 2015. I know quite a few teachers used that site to read books to their children in the past. I’ve used it, too. The closing is related to their parent company’s involvement in developing the Common Core curriculum. Bummer…
Bright, Shiny New Books
Christmas came early for me this week! I don’t receive very many physical review books, if any. So when I received my special package from Scholastic Books and Victoria Scott with the Titans ARC in it, I was beyond happy. Not only is the ARC in there, but there was a signed poster. This book, set in Detroit, is one my most highly anticipated books of 2016.
Thank you to Scholastic, Hachette, HarperCollins, and Simon & Schuster – I love you all the best!
I joined the Kickstarter campaign a while back for Rachel Caine’s newest Weather Warden novel, Red Hot Rain. That’s right, another Weather Warden book, after all these years!! And for the measley little amount of money I “donated”, I received this in the mail, in addition to the ebook copy I’ll eventually get and the other short stories…
Ill Wind signed cover art! My favorite book of the series and the one that started my love of urban fantasy about 6 years ago. This is such a sentimental WIN for me 🙂
Again, I hope you have a safe, quiet, warm, happy, wonderful Christmas and all the best into the New Year! I’ll see you next year 😉
