Sunday Post--May 5

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is where I take a look at my last week and look ahead to what I might be doing next week.

Last Week

Around the House

I read more this week since my husband was

Working on the blog
I did read a bit more this week though I had my frustrations. I decided to put a comment system on my blog. I like to tinker with the blog and, so far I'd had good luck with getting things to work, but this time my old comments didn't import for four days...and then still didn't import because I'd made a mistake on my blog. By this time, I had rethought whether I really needed this new comment overlay. I decided I didn't and finally figured out how to delete it!

Around the web
Lark from The Bookwyrm's Hoard blog writes a weekly post each Saturday called News & Notes. The posts are about books and publishing Always very interesting. For example, this week she links to and talks about what Tor UK has found from removing DRM from their books, The Enchanted Blogspot which offers a post about getting past writer's block, a list of "101 Best Chapter Books to Read (or Hear) Before You Grow Up." Lots of interesting info each week.

If you're a fan of science fiction and fantasy and you haven't checked out the Fantasy Cafe blog during the month of April you've missed some great posts. Kristen has hosted the Women in SF&F Month during April where she's had authors and fellow bloggers talking about all the amazing women writing fantasy and science fiction. I've found so many books and authors to add to my list of "want to reads." It's awesome!

    1. Thanks! It should be a good reading week.

  2. Wow, Jan, thank you so much for the great write-up! I'm really glad you enjoy the feature; I have fun putting it together each week.

    I also appreciate you sharing your comment system saga. I've been debating switching to Disqus myself, and haven't decided yet whether to do so or not.

    You picked up a nice batch of books this week. Love that Temeraire! And I must go get myself a copy of the new (reissued) Balogh duo.

    Have a great week!

    1. You're welcome, Lark. I'm glad you put these all in one spot for me to read!

      Enjoy your week.

  3. I am so sorry you had so much trouble with Disqus, my imports took about 48 hrs. Next time give a shout out I would have been happy to help you navigate. Balogh's book looks yummy! The Sunday Post

    1. Thanks! I should have. I kept thinking it was going to work and then I was just

      Have a good week!

  4. Ga! Sorry about the trouble with the comments. I am always afraid to play with those things as I always goof it up. But glad to hear you are back with comments. :)

    Hope you have a good week.

    I too posted a Sunday Post, if you'd like to stop by...

  5. I seem to have to learn my lesson over and over again! But I usually learn something along the way. lol

    I will go check out your post.

  6. Looking forward to your reviews for next week! I agree the Women in SFF month highlighted some great authors - my TBR list grew by leaps and bounds.

    1. Thanks, Li. My TBR list grew, too. I discovered a lot of new authors and books. Now, I just have to find the time to read some of them!
