Thanks to J Kaye’s Book Blog for hosting this weekly meme.
So here we are, the unofficial last day of summer. I hope you all had a good reading week, and hopefully long weekend. I did!
I am happy to report that I at least finished two books up last week, I hope this keeps up (and increases) through the rest of the year, as my shelves are really piling up. I am trying to set some new personal goals for myself and my reading, this includes some new challenges – I am still trying to come up with my four books for the Five Borough Book Review Back to School Challenge. I am hopeful that I will have it finished up today. I also have been lucky enough to receive many ARCs and books from the publishers over the past few weeks, and I want to read and write those up as well.
Another thing I want to focus on over the rest of the year is keeping up with my online book catalog sites like LibraryThing and Good Reads. I also have not put my reviews up on Amazon, but in reading Twitter tweets about the Vine program, I am thinking that maybe I should be doing that too to try and get in the program. How about you? Do you use online book catalog sites? If so, which ones and why?
And finally, be sure to check back in this week for my very first giveaway contest, it will be associated with my review of The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory. I was lucky enough to win a copy, and already had one since I couldn’t wait to read it – so I will be giving away a lovely, unread hard copy version.
OK, now here’s a look at my last week and my week ahead. Happy Reading All!!
