I’ve been invited to be an Avon Addict! I’m so excited! It’s a cool program – every month for six months, I’ll receive a box full of forthcoming books and goodies from Avon Books, including extra books for me to share with you! (More giveaways!!!)
On the personal front, I’m dealing with a possible pinched nerve in my neck and something-or-other going on in my wrist (possibly a ganglionic cyst.) I’m not really in pain (other than my shoulder muscles!), but a portion of my right thumb and hand feel a bit numb and my fingers are a bit sore. I’m supposed to do some stretches for my neck, wear a wrist brace and do less computer work, which is going to play havoc with both my freelance work and blogging. Looking on the bright side, I might get more reading done if I’m on the computer less!
Today is the last day to enter the giveaway celebrating my 6-year blogoversary – don’t miss it!
A reminder: If you follow me through Feedburner, you will need to unsubscribe and then resubscribe using the RSS feed link in my sidebar – just copy the link and paste it into Feedburner. Over a week ago, I updated the feed at Feedburner, but they don’t seem to have a way to automatically update the feed that current subscribers use, so you each have to do it manually. If you use a different feed, you may need to check its address as well. It should be a “bookwyrmshoard.com” address, not a blogspot address.

What I’m Reading/Watching
This week, I read Purl Up and Die by Maggie Sefton (library), Wildest Dreams (Robyn Carr; ARC), and Heather Graham’s The Hidden (ARC.) I’m still reading Serafina and the Black Cloak (Robert Beatty) and Silver in the Blood (Jessica Day George – I need to get back to this one.) We went to the theater to see The Avengers: Age of Ultron (good but somewhat bittersweet), watched some of Into the Woods on DVD (Netflix), and I’m still enjoying the first season of Avatar: The Last Airbender (a favorite of Robin’s) and occasional episodes of Doctor Who and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
