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.
I’m having the crappiest weeks in recent history. It started Monday when I couldn’t stay awake during the day. I took 2 hour naps in the middle of the day and then flopped into bed around 10:15pm, just after hubs left for work. Ever fell asleep sitting straight up? I’m a professional at it.
Then Wednesday evening I completely forgot about the Twitter chat I was co-hosting with Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer for her Clean Sweep ARC Challenge this month. I was asleep, on the couch…
Thursday was by far the worst day because I realized I missed the Twitter chat and I had to bury a baby bird that got tossed out of our robin’s bird nest. Friday, the nest fell from it’s perch and the two other babies were wandering around our yard being fed by its mother and father. Of course my hubs had to mow the lawn (grrrrrr).
I have no clue how I survived raising my human child.
I’ll have an update from my week at BEA hopefully this week. I’m still processing everything.
In the meantime, did you see all the drama and flack about BEA book hauls and stupid people selling ARCs?
Why does this person need multiple duplicates of ARCs? I will admit I grabbed duplicate books for friends when they asked but only a title or two. This is just ridiculous!
Don’t even get me started on the trolls selling ARCs.
These are all ARCs that were available at BEA and Bookcon. This person is a greedy little troll….
- If you’re unclear about why you can’t sell ARCs, go see Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog post about Bad ARC Behavior.
- If you’re unclear about the graphics and pictures on your blog, go see Caffeinated Book Reviewer’s post about Searching for Images for Your Blog – Don’t Steal Them.
On the lighter side of the blogosphere:
- Rebel Mommy Book Blog had a fun post about 6 moments she remembers best in books. Brilliant!
No NEW Books!!! 😉
Not related in any sort of way, I saw The Angry Birds Movie yesterday. I would give it a B- for adults and a B for kids. Overall I liked it and it’s message: that it’s okay to be angry sometimes. You just know what to do with that anger and where to “point” it. Definitely a good discussion movie for us and our 10 year old 🙂
I could be less angry, right?! 😉
On repeat on my iPhone… I actually prefer RAC’s remix.
Have a great week!
