Chuckles Sunday Post #3


The Sunday Post
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @
Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~
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. 


This week was insanely busy and with workmen visiting and shopping to be done, I got a bit behind in my reading which was a bummer. I am LOVING my first week with my Kobo! Funny how I never really wanted one until I started doing lots of read and reviews for authors, yet now I can't imagine NOT having one! If a technophobe like me loves it, you might too! Only down side is that Kobo don't seem to accept debit cards so I can't buy anything! I need to rely on free things which sucks when I have a huge wishlist staring at me!

I'm also enjoying Twitter and getting the chance to tweet about books and authors is great for my promotion activities. And of course it helps me to find new authors and books I wasn't aware of. Lovely! It would be nice to have some more blog followers so I can get free books at Netgalley to review! So please consider following this blog! If you are interested in contacting me or following me, you can also find me here:


BLOG VISITING POLICY:
I try to visit as many blogs as I can to leave a message to say hi or chat about your books. But I don't join third party app things that some of your blogs insist on before I can leave a message, and wordpress seems to refuse me access at all. If you are on blogger or don't require me to sign in or join stuff, I'll leave a message when I visit.

  1. Looks like you've had a really busy week. I'm not familiar with most of these books, but I like learning about new ones. Happy reading!

  3. I love the cover of Sunshine, that looks really intriguing! I can't believe Kobo doesn't accept debit cards - that's insane! You should check out your library, a lot of them are connected to Overdrive now which means you can download and borrow books with a program called Adobe Digital Editions. I did that all the time with my nook and now I'm doing it with my iPad (they have an Apple App so now I don't even have to make my laptop the go between I can do the whole process on the iPad!) :D

    You should look into it, it's a really cool feature if your library participates! Adobe Digital Editions is a free program to download too. :)

    I hope you love all your books!

  4. You have a wonderful collection of books added to your shelves this week. Hope you enjoy them all. I'd be curious to hear about a few of them. :)

  5. You got quite a haul this week! And I envy you that Kindle! I like my old Sony Reader, but it is S-L-O-W.

    I'm sorry you've run into difficulties commenting on some blogs. I'm glad you were able to comment on mine. It's something I'll have to consider when thinking about switching to WordPress for my blog. I think a lot of bloggers are switching because they're worried about Blogger disappearing like Google Reader did. It should be possible to create a Wordpress account for commenting, without making a whole blog; I did that a few years ago, because of the same problem.


    Best of luck with your blog, and thank you for stopping by mine today!
