Please note that I always leave a message on your STS/SP if you visit me, but if you use DISQUS or a similar third party I will not be able to leave a comment on your page. I don't allow any company access to my social media accounts and I certainly don't allow them to edit and take over my accounts the way DISQUS does. So if you use DISQUS, I can't leave comments on your page so I can't really follow you back, sorry! I'm noticing that some blogs set with Google Plus are trying to force you to open a Google Plus account before you can leave a comment. Well, I have no interest in rejoining Google Plus so if your blog uses this set up, I won't be following it or commenting! And sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress-they try to block me so there might not be a message from me some weeks or you might get a double message sometimes! Blame them, not me!
I am pleased to report that I've had a good reading week and the slump is officially over. During a slump I lose interest in fiction for some reason-lack of concentration I guess-so I switched to non fiction and I'm going pretty well so far! I reckon I'll get 5 or 6 books read by Sunday so I'm happy with that. My dad has been watching racing and football so that doesn't give a peaceful atmosphere to read, so I've got lots of blogging done during the day. Reading is at night in the peace of my own room. Overall it has been pretty productive so I can't complain. I just need to find a balance so I can also get films and TV series watched! It's June and I've watched 2 new films all year which is very poor and no new series except a few Masterchefs!
Things have been good on the book buying front as well. I have had a post holiday splurge on Amazon to grab a few historical fiction and mountain climbing non fiction books. Not all have arrived yet so I think some will be on next week's STS. Naturally I picked up some ebooks as well-not sure if I'll have space for all of them this week...yes normal service has been resumed at Chez Chuckles! I'm beyong caring about the tbr at the moment-it'll come down at some point but I'm not going to stress about it!
I know, I know, a bit mad buying GOT5 when I've never seen a single episode but even if I don't like it, my dad should love it! I had to buy the German versions of Bitten as Amazon UK only stocks the US versions which don't play in my DVD player. Very useful.
