This is a tad late today because yesterday while spring cleaning I accidentally poked myself in the eye with a scrub brush (thank goodness I was using baking and water and not bleach). I must have scratched my eye, so blogging and social media have been slow for me today. I might not get to everyone's posts today, but I will by tomorrow! I have been listening to ARCs via text-to-speech.
The quick version...
Remember when I said not to read my Wattpad serialization, HIDDEN MAGIC, on the app because the edits that were made had not been showing up in the text? Well, I went to check to see if the app had updated the story and I saw that there were now entire paragraphs missing! I contacted WP, but there is no one in their tech department on weekends, so I have unpublished the story until they fix the problems. I don't understand what could be going on because the desktop version is fine.
A bunch of us were high-fiving on Twitter when we got this in an email from Goodreads. That is... until I did the math and with there being more than 20 million users on GR, this meant we were about one in 200,000 reviewers. Heh heh. But still being in the top one percent is nice.
AMAZON EBOOK DEALS
My first Cozy Mystery purchase. A thank-you to Laura, from FUONLYKNEW, for the heads up in her Sunday Post freebie section. I have been curious about them because Katherine from I WISH I LIVED IN A LIBRARY is always talking about cozy mysteries But, shhhhh... don't tell my sister; she will never let me live it down because I don't read mysteries.
I have wanted this cookbook/memoir since I first saw it in Barnes and Noble! But physical cookbooks are soooooo expensive! I checked and it is still a $1.99 deal today.
I have had this ebook for a while from when it was on sale for $3.99. I love this restaurant!
Unsolicited from Harlequin
It was a very nice thick paged coloring book by a street artist. I gave it to my son's girlfriend, Mandy, whom I keep calling, Molly! I am so bad. I need to give her a nickname.
I adored this children's counting book!
I saw this on twitter...
Redhair with BLACK EYEBROWS! I had to get the opinion of some fellow redheads on Twitter, so I tagged Heather from RANDOM REDHEADED RAMBLINGS and Ginger from GINGER READER. I also wanted to know if this was a new "thing". They both liked it, but I say nay! I would be staring at her eyebrows the entire time. Heather put it up for a vote on her The Sunday Post, too.
Litha Nelle is celebrating her 2nd blogversary with a GIVEAWAY!
Beverly Cleary turned 100 years old today (and she is still alive). Sebastian adored her mouse books.
I don't quite get why her promo picture is in her bedroom though.
I love this, but am I the only person who remembers percolated (perked) coffee? I cannot find a link to this exact style, which just happens to be the one I want. Ugh. *big frowny face* If anyone comes across this one will you let me know? Here is the link to one that is close.
