Welcome to my 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!
This has been a more productive week on the whole. I managed to grab myself more free and cheap books in my favourite genre so I have a lovely backlog of things to add to my Goodreads shelves! Of course it means more books to entice you guys with too! *evil snigger* I've been doing some computer housekeeping-wading through vall the files on my computer and deleting what I no longer want and need but it's going to take another few weeks to complete that by the look of it! Ugh! I still have to do a good sort of my Goodreads shelves-cut them down, rearrange and relabel everything...and that will take ages too. The good news is that I've been working hard to get ahead on all my regular blog posts...5 weeks ahead on all my usual posts except the chat ones which I'll be working on today. Pleased with progress!
The down side is that I read nothing this week except a couple of short stories. It's a bit frustrating as I really was enjoying The Extinction Files but I seem to be too tired to read at any time of the day right now. I'm watching plenty TV, catching up with my favourite soap and things like Masterchef. I'm having fun but I do need to find a way back into my reading. I'll give it a try this weekend and hopefully there will be good news to report soon. I'm a bit behind on answering comments but I'll catch up once this is posted.
Chuckles Blogging World
I've been working on a lot of those time consuming computer jobs-deleting files and writing poststo get my regular posts 5 weeks ahead. I had to use up a lot of pre-written posts during that flu so it's nice to get back ahead again. Still got a lot of file deleting and work on my Goodreads shelves to do but that'll take weeks!
Sadly I just didn't get time to get to any book reviews but being ahead on blog posts again should give me time to get a few reviews done next week. I hope!
No samples or prepping this week as I ran out of time again. I feel like a broken record when I keep saying the same thing...Cover Love looked at CW Snyder, Top Ten Tuesday was all about Sea Monsters, Can't Wait Wednesday featured Kelly Meding and Books From The Backlog was Gameland. I did my usual Around The Blogs post too.
