Welcome to my new feature Chuckles Weekend Roundup where I will be looking at what books I've received, anything interesting I've done or bought or watched and other random stuff. I'll be taking a look back at what happened in my blogging world too, sort of like The Sunday Post that some of you do!
Please note that I'll be visiting your STS/SP as normal, but I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus, or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow DISQUS to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I am the only one who does that on my social media! I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account. Sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress-they try to block me because I deleted my account with them but I will persevere as it only happens the odd time!
Another busy week on the home front. We finally caved in and went to look at a sofa-a two seater. I really hate this kind of shopping but we found something comfy and quite sturdy looking and it'll be delivered in a month or less so I can't complain. It also seems that the long running mouse issue is finally sorted so we can get the kitchen back on it's feet fully. My dad had to block the area around the pipes with heavy wood to stop the furry critters getting in. Now it's the living room to tidy ready to welcome the new sofa. And to cap it all I had to hand wash a few things which was really tiring. How on earth did women manage before the washing machine??? My arms feel like they've been pulled out their sockets!
On the book buying front I bought a few new books in long running series that I've been following, one downloaded novel and downloading a pile of samples to read. I was catching up on a few samples last night so there will be a sample post tomorrow! Reading wise, I read one book and two novellas which is better than nothing. Today I need to get a few posts for next week written out ready to go. I didn't post a lot on the blog this week but I am keeping up with comments and visits so that side of things is going well.
Chuckles Blogging World
Less done than I'd have liked and a bit behind on a few things but it could be worse! As always I've provided a link to each post from this week in case you want to take a look at it.
Matthew Scott Hansen-The Shadowkiller
This week as usual I went around the blogs to see what everyone was posting and share that with you. Cover Love featured Jenn Bennett, Top Ten Tuesday was about who to have on your team in the apocalypse and Can't Wait Wednesday was Dirk Patton.

Currently Reading/Next Up
This week I read two Coronation Street novellas and I read Ripley's Game by Patricia Highsmith. I love the character of Ripley! I'd like to get the last two Ripley books read and dig in to A Feast For Crows but I haven't really made my mind up yet!
Next Week on the blog...
There will be Around The Blogs With Chuckles and Chuckles Goes Sampling returns! I'm hoping to do another book tag along with book and film reviews. Chuckles Cover Love features TD Shields, Top Ten Tuesday has part two of who you want on your side during the apocalypse, Can't Wait Wednesday has Patricia Briggs, Chuckles Chat is about Sexual Harrassment and Game of Thrones Gossip is a review of season two.
