I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; 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.
I'm meeeelting! It's been 90+ degrees here and my A/C is not keeping up.At least I have A/C. Thursday was the US's Independence Day and I had the day off. Goof and I watched the fireworks on TV. :) Right now he's sprawled on the laminate floor, in front of the oscillating fan. Yes, it's so hot I have fans and A/C going.
Today, I'll be focusing on edits. My author returned her MS but she surprised me. We were just doing proofing, catching errors before it went to formatting but she re-wrote sections so now I have to do copy edits and proofing on the whole thing and get it turned in for Monday. That may affect my planned reviews for the week. How was your week? Staying cool?
