THE SUNDAY POST is a weekly feature hosted by Kimba at the Caffinated Book Reviewer. It is a chance to recap the previous week, share news, showcase books and/or bookish things we have received, and tell about what is coming up on our blog in the next week. You can view the guidelines, HERE.
THIS LAST WEEK
This was me at work and at home. Ha ha! Scattered and therefore unproductive. The Blogger html problems didn't help either.
There is a new blog font though. Do you like it?
I have been semi bad at returning comments and will be remedying that this next week. I started yesterday as a matter of fact. That is why my monthly Stacking the Shelves didn't get finished.
My Wednesday's WEIRD WORD was...
Which was funny because that was me all week. Everything was irritating me.
Aimee from THE SOCIAL POTATO is doing a series of posts titled The Bookish Community Survival Guide. Part one was Sharing Your Thoughts and she made this fab graphic to go along with it.
I am looking forward to Part two.
Please, please, please read this Tumblr post, tumbled by author Lori M. Lee, HOW I DISCOVERED I'M WHITE. It is about white privilege in the United States, and it says every thing I wanted to say to the "friends" on Facebook who had a problem with me posting Black Lives Matter, and who in passive aggressive answer to my BLM posts started posting memes with illogical analogies, and even articles that called people who support Black Lives Matter terrorists! I guess I am a terrorist. It has motivated me to do a post about my Facebook experience on my personal blog, and stand up for my beliefs on Facebook (I will let you know how that goes). Anyway, you can read this truly wonderful Tumblr post. HERE.
When I realized I had never read A Christmas Carol by Dickens I thought, hmm... I can use that for Kimba's Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon! I went to my Kindle and sure enough, there was a FREE Classics ebook. And guess what? The added narration is only 99 cents!
I SEE IN THE FUTURE
This week will be the same old same old. I am not going to promise a blogversary post because I want it to be perfect (which hasn't been easy with all my Blogger problems) and make sure I thank everyone. It is my birthday on Tuesday and I will be doing a small $10 Amazon giftcard giveaway to tide everyone over until the blogversary contest.
I will be doing a guest post review of ORLEANS on READ. SLEEP. REPEAT. for Diversity Month. It will have a giveaway for the book. I have also been asked to do a guest post on 21st CENTURY ONCE UPON A TIMES. And of course there will be all the witchiness on my Children's book blog.
Have a wickedly wonderful week!
