The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the wonderful Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
The last two weeks have been incredibly busy — in real life, which means I’ve been less busy on the blog. My biggest regret is that I’ve gotten really behind on responding to comments and visiting blogs, so if you’ve left a comment in the last week and a half or so, please accept my apologies for not responding sooner! I’ve been trying to catch up, but until I get this current project out the door this coming week, I don’t have time for much else. I’ve been working about 12 hours a day, even on the weekends — I’ve had to steal reading time from sleep!
I did take a little time off last Saturday to celebrate my birthday. Mr. Bookwyrm spoiled me with a wonderful steak dinner, grilled to perfection, and homemade macaroni and cheese. And chocolate cake, of course!

I’ve signed up for the Clean out your E-reader Challenge hosted by Fantasy is More Fun and Because Reading is more fun. The focus of the challenge is ebook freebies and bargain books, whether downloaded from a retailer like Amazon or received for review through NetGalley or Edelweiss. I’m hoping this will help me get through some of those Netgalley review copies!
