Sunday Post – 2/02/14

February 2, 2014 Sunday Post 19

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.

There’s very little to report this week.  I’ve been touched by all the remembrances of Pete Seeger, whose music was (as a friend of mine put it) the soundtrack of my childhood.  Or at least a big part of the soundtrack.  I had several of his albums as a child, and had the delight of attending a concert he gave while I was a student at Oberlin College.  He was an amazing man, passionate about music, about involving others in his music, and about making the earth a better place.  The world is a poorer place without him, but his songs will live on for generations to come.

Last week on the blog: 

The coming week:

  • Mon. 2/03: Shadows, by Robin McKinley (review)
  • Tues. 2/04: Top Ten Books That Will Make Me Cry (Top Ten Tuesday)
  • Wed. 2/05: Evolution of Romance Infographic
  • Thur. 2/06 and Fri. 2/07: TBD
  • Sat. 2/08: News & Notes – 1/25/14 

New additions to the hoard:

Kindle books, purchased and free:
In the Bleak Midwinter is for a new book group at one of my local libraries.  We’ll be meeting on Feb. 25, so I need to squeeze it in this month.  The other two were freebies that appealed to me enough to break my “don’t get too many new books” resolution.  I like Emily March’s small-town romance series set in Eternity Springs; The Bad Luck Wedding Dress is from a series she originally wrote under another name.

 Purchased in print:
So I can finally start switching my blog over, and get my business website set up, too.

    I really like the Julia Spencer-Fleming series. I hope you enjoy it, too. I’ll look forward to your Shadows review. I haven’t read it, but am interested. And good luck with your WordPress reading and learning. Are you planning to make a WordPress website for you business? I hope you have a good week.

    You are so lucky you got to attend a Pete Seeger concert. He is a treasure who will be remembered.

      I’ve heard great things about her series, so I’m definitely looking forward to it. Yes, I want to create a WordPress website for my business as well as move my blog. But the whole self-hosting thing for my business has me baffled. The blog I could probably move to and then move it to self-hosting later, but I don’t know about the website. Well, I am trying to learn!

    I am actually taking a wordpress class for my last course. I went back to school for web design since I am a graphic designer and when I went to school the first time they didn’t offer web design not now I am back. Ashley at has a great step by step insturctions on how to switch. I followed hers when I did my switch over last week, It was pretty easy but WordPress is a lot fo getting use to. I could totally iuse that book 🙂

    Great haul!

    Have a fantastic sunday

    Good luck with the move, and shout if you have questions. I am curious about In the Bleak Midwinter..the book just looks suspenseful. I hope your week is fantastic!

    • Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      Thank you, Kimba! I’ve been wanting to read In the Bleak Midwinter for a while, so I’m glad the library book group picked it — gives me the excuse to bump it up my reading list!

    I was looking at WordPress books at B&N this weekend! I feel like all of these books are out of date two minutes before they are published, but I like the idea of being able to look through a physical book why I make the transition.

    • Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      I have the same worry, but hopefully it will be up-to-date enough to be useful. It does help me to have a book or some kind of reference to look at when I’m trying to learn something new.

    yay for the wordpress book!! I love learning this stuff myself, why pay someone to do it when you can learn it yourself! 🙂 good luck!

    • Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      I like learning new stuff, too! I figured out Blogger on my own, but the self-hosting aspects of WordPress (which I need to do for my business website) are confusing, to say the least!

    Oooh. You’re reading Shadows this week. I love Robin McKinley and that book is high on my tbr. I have to get through a bunch of other books that I’m committed to read before I read it though. I hope you really enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by my STS!!

    I was sorry to hear about Pete Seeger as well.

    Good luck with the WordPress research, I’ve been thinking about that too lately… I know I will probably switch at some point too, although who knows when!

    Have a great Sunday.

    Oh, will you write up a review of the WP book? I keep thinking I should move over my blog but I’m too nervous. If the book is helpful and not too hard to understand, I might buy it.

  9. Berls

    I’ll be curious to know how helpful the wordpress book is. I made my switch pretty much on my own, using google, a few tutorials on fellow bloggers pages and a bit of pulling my hair out. In the end though, ti wasn’t that bad really and I love WP. Good luck making the move!

  10. A Voracious Reader

    I need to get that WP book and give it to my husband to read, so when I do decide to switch he can help me. 🙂

    You went to Oberlin College? I grew up in Medina, not too far away from there. 🙂
