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.
I’m finding it harder to balance working from home and blogging than I thought it would be. I did pretty well two weeks ago, thanks in part to several pre-scheduled posts. This week? Not so much. I did manage one review and a few other posts, but I’d really like to get further ahead in terms of scheduling posts.

New additions to the hoard:
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! I’ve read 4 or 5 this month so far.
