Sunday Post – 4/26/15

April 26, 2015 Sunday Post 20

The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week, take a look ahead, and showcase our new treasures – I mean books!

My Week

I spent this week working, and sometimes avoiding working by writing up some reviews and spending way too much time on Tumblr. Oops. But at least now I’ve got a few more reviews scheduled ahead – two for next week, and two in the middle of May. I’ve got to crack down on my work habits in the coming week, though; I’ve got a project due Thursday morning and another due a week and a half after that. So if I’m a little slow to answer comments or stop by for a visit this week, please be patient with me! I will get back to you, I promise.

Speaking of replying to comments, is anyone else having problems with the Comments Not Replied To plugin since the most recent upgrade? Mine’s not working anymore. 🙁

      I buy some books in print, some as ebooks. A lot of the Kindle books I buy are on sale (all of this week’s except Linnets and Valerians, which I love and just wanted an e-copy of.) And most of the ebooks I buy are either books or authors I want to try but don’t know if I will like (like Snow Like Ashes) so I’d rather not spend full price on them – I keep an eye on the Kindle Daily Deals and other sales, and only get the “try-it-out” books on deep sale. When I buy full-price (or nearly full-price) ebooks, like Linnets and Valerians, they are either old favorites that I want an easily portable copy of, or they are new-to-me titles by authors I love. I’ve pretty much stopped buying new paperback romances, because I’m running out of shelf space – I just buy my romances in ebook now.

      Have you ever seen the 1980 TV miniseries they made of that book? Francesca Annis and James Warwick (the same actors who played Tommy & Tuppence) as Frankie and Bobby – and the redoubtable Sir John Gielgud played Bobby’s father. Well worth watching, and they stayed surprisingly close to the book.

      I’d appreciate it! I submitted a trouble ticket to the plugin’s author (at least I tried to), so hopefully they can figure out what’s wrong.

    Nice week for you! Sorry you will be busy with work, but hey real life does interrupt our reading sometimes, lol. I responded on your post about S. Kearlsey. Such a wonderful night you had! Now I want to read her newest book. Your gift basket looks so scrumptious. I love throws like that too, but it will be covered with the mandatory cat hair in our house, ha.

    Have a good week and hope to chat with you soon! {I linked you as one of my fave sites to visit for book news in my top tabs bar if you check it out}.

      Oh, the throw is so soft and nice – but it soon be covered with cat hair here, too. (What’s a blanket without cat hair?) Oh, and thanks for the link – much appreciated!

      Yes, I’ve learned a fair bit on Tumblr too. And I appreciate how aware many posters are of social justice issues and mental health issues. Maybe it’s just the people I tend to follow, but I see a lot of open-mindedness and caring there, and it gives me hope.

      Eep, I missed some of the comments on this post due to the comment reply issue! Apologies! I did get my indexes done, at least! 🙂

    • Lark_Bookwyrm

      Aaagh, I am so late answering this post’s comments! Mea culpa, and I’m sorry! I hope you can find a copy of Still Life – though I haven’t managed to find time to read mine, yet, so I can’t tell you if it’s good or not.
