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!
It has been quite a manic week in my personal Book Cave! Enjoying the cooler temperatures and rain has allowed me to plan the next stage of getting my room sorted out! A new bookcase was bought yesterday which I'm clearing space for and the rest of my room looks like the apocalypse has already hit! I'm in my comfy new computer chair too which is great. I've been doing a bit of work each day on my Goodreads shelves to get them fixed and I think I'm about two thirds done now which is great! Need to get a pandemic shelf sorted and add more to my YA shelf but most of the big jobs are thankfully done. When I'm sure the heatwave is over, we are swapping two bookcases over so the big one id downstairs and the smaller goes into my dad's room. It'll maximise space. And my new bookcase going into my room means nights of work ahead to sort out the books and dvds!
It has been an exciting week for book purchases and book grabbing! If you saw my Chuckles Chuntering post you'll have read that my neighbour's friend was doing a book clearout and I picked up a pile of horror, SF, fantasy and historical books for my collection. That was exciting and there could be more to come! I'm not repeating them all here or my post would be ultra long today! I also got a few for myself and the rest of last week's downloads to share! Reading has been slow as my tv digibox is on it's last legs and I'm trying to get everything off it onto disk before it breaks down!
Chuckles Blogging World
Busy week as usual trying to keep up with things and remembering to go to Twitter, which I think I forgot yesterday. I hope to find more time to look for blogs about horror and apocalypse books and get more ideas for book grabbing!

I did my usual Around The Blogs With Chuckles this week but no samples post as I was too busy. Cover Love was Brandt Legg, Top Ten Tuesday looked at short stories, Can't Wait Wednesday was Breakdown and Books From The Backlog was about Falling Sky.

Not a great reading week. I did finish Matthew Reilly's Contest which was really good but never got to anything else. This week might not be any better for reading but these are the next three on my list anyway.
