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 blog! 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 week gone and I'm happy enough with how things are going. I got stuck into the Nicholas Sansbury Smith zombie series and got the first five books read-just one more and a short novella to get that up to date. Things went pretty well at the blog too and I've actually got ahead in my blog posts, enough to take a few days off to read and chill out up to the General Election on Thursday. I feel some GRRM coming on and intend to read A Clash of Kings next! On the book buying side of things a pile of pre-orders from Amazon arrived so that was fun! I also discovered that you can buy Twinkies on Amazon which could be fatal to the waistline!
This totally gorgeous Philosopher's Stone 20th anniversary edition all have coloured pages to match the covers! They are a great set and the pre-order price was low so why wouldn't I rush to buy them all? Wicked!
Chuckles Blogging World:
I'm kind of pleased with how each day has gone this week. I decided to post twice each day for the most part to give me time to get the posts for next week prepared. I'm have a few days off Monday-Wednesday just to have some chill out and reading time. Please post your comments as normal and I'll start getting back to you probably on Thursday. I just need a few days to chill with my dad. I'm amazed I got ahead in scheduled posts enough to do this, frankly! I'll be back visiting all your blogs on Thursday and Friday so everything will be caught up by the weekend. Click on the link provided to go to each blog post if you missed it during the week and feel free to stop by and leave a comment!
Happy to say that I've now got all my book reviews from March posted to the blog. I will be continuing the book reviews for those I read in April now, other than my Retro Reads posts of course. Now that the backlog is under control, I'll be looking to spend more time on blog lurking and some more discussion posts, maybe even put up a few self made book tags. I might work on that while I'm on my blog break!

Book Challenge Updates:
It's the end of another month so I took a look back at my book challenges and how I got on. Bit of a mixed bag really...
Get 'Em 'Orf The Shelves Month!
Reading With Chuckles-June Plan
My Goodreads Challenge total currently stands at 117/250. Happy!
TBR total of books I own but haven't read yet stands at 805. Not bad. Ahem...
Mixing it up a little! I'm about to start the sixth Extinction Horizon book by Nicholas Sansbury Smith and I'm also well into Project Fear, a look behind the scenes of the No campaign in the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum.
George RR Martin-A Clash of Kings
That's all for this week! Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to visit my blog and leave comments. You guys are great!
