I'm participating in Feed My Reader Friday hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. These memes allow book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received, and different posts and events at their blogs.
Another busy week last week, both here and offline. The next few weeks are crazy busy for me at work so other than blog tours, posting may be erratic. This month I have a couple promised reviews but otherwise my reviews will be of books that I read for the Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge March 2013, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated.
Last week I had a huge picture of my cat in my header and mentioned my frustration at not being able to size it properly. Kimba offered to play around with it and while she was at it, she cleaned up my text and fancied up the font. I like it, and smile every time I look at it.
ETA: After I wrote this up and logged into Twitter, I discovered that Kara at Nocturnal Reviews had gifted me with a header that she made. It's gorgeous and now I'm torn. I want them both. Kimba's has Goof, Kara's has another cat, but they both look good. :D I may have to alternate and swap them around periodically. I'm overwhelmed by the generosity of both ladies. <3 Right now, Kara's is up. So, here is Kimba's:
