Sunday Post – 3/29/15

March 29, 2015 Sunday Post, Uncategorized 16

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’ve been utterly miserable with a cold all week: stuffed up nose, scratchy throat, and absolutely no energy. On the one hand, I’ve been reading a lot – or rather, re-reading, because I don’t seem to have the energy for something new. On the other hand, I’ve gotten very little done for Bloggiesta, and hardly any reviews written. [sigh]

And I pretty much failed the Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge. I think I do best with longer challenges.

But… I have a new blog design! The artwork is by Christin Jaynes, inspired by a photo of my little bookwyrm shelf-sitter, and I just love what she did with him! The overall header design is by Michelle of Because Reading – many thanks, Michelle! I spent Monday (before the worst of the cold hit) working on getting the various elements of the blog to match or work with the header, and I’m really happy with the result. So even though I didn’t finish all my Bloggiesta goals, I’m very proud of what I did do.

    Oh, boo for being sick. 🙁 Hopefully it doesn’t last too much longer. At least you’re able to read and you got your lovely new design. I haven’t done as well with the TBR challenge as I wanted but I’m happy with what I’ve read. 🙂 Rest up and feel better!

      I pretty much gave up on the TBR challenge. Maybe I’ll do better with May’s ARC challenge, but I’m beginning to think I should stay away from month-long challenges. I’m too much of a mood reader!

  2. Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library

    So sorry about your cold! Hopefully you’re on the mend? I love your blog header! It’s just the right amount of whimsical! I’m catching up on blog reading so I’m looking forward to getting to your Top Ten list. Wild Irish Eyes looks intriguing and E. Nesbit is an author I’ve been wanting to read. Have a great week and stay healthy!

      Thanks, Katherine, I’m starting to feel better! I just hope I get my voice back in time to sing the Holy Week services this week. 🙂 I’m catching up on comments and thus also on blog reading today. Ditto E. Nesbit for me – I haven’t read her, but I’ve been meaning to for years.

    I LOVE The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes! I hope you do review it. That’s interesting that Open Road is doing E. Nesbit. You can get her books on Project Gutenberg but they have lots of mistakes as usual with PG. I wonder if they will do a full series.

      In that case, I’ll make every effort to get to it! I love that book too, and have since I was a little girl. Sadly, my copy went missing in a move or something, but when they did a reprint I was able to grab a hardcover copy. It’s my one must-read Easter book! Yes, I agree that Project Gutenberg books have a lot of mistakes, so when I can find something for a really low price that I trust to be reasonably error-free, I like to grab it. I’ve never read Nesbit, which is a little embarrassing given how much I love both fantasy and British children’s books!

      Thanks, Laurel-Rain! I’m glad you like the new design – I am just tickled by how cute that dragon (or bookwyrm) is! Enjoy your Robyn Carr – which book is it?

      Thanks, Anna! I’m starting to feel better. It’s the energy that’s the worst problem; I usually don’t feel this wiped out by a virus unless I had a fever, which I didn’t.
