I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, and Library Loot co-hosted by The Captive Reader and The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. All of these memes give book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received, and posts and events at their blogs.
Oy, I'm glad last week is over. It was stressful on several counts. I'm closer to being ready for Christmas though and I, once again, have a new cell phone. So far, it works. :D Over the next few weeks, the majority of reviews will be catch-up reviews, books that have been sitting in my review pile for an embarrassingly long time. I have an ambitious plan to post a review a day from the 21st through the 30th. Will I succeed? Check back and find out. :)
