- CrossFit. I started doing this 2 weeks ago. It is like P90x on steroids. I am the fluffiest participant among athletes. But it doesn’t bother me and they are all very supportive of each other and me. I hope this craziness helps give me the push needed to get RIGHT with myself. BUT it really threw me a curveball. This week was my one week off before summer school. I had high hopes of all the catch-up blogging I would accomplish. NOPE. My arms were so fatigued I had no desire to try to hold them up to type. I barely read.
- Book Signing. I trotted myself up to A Real Bookstore in Allen, TX for the Kevin Hearne and Jaye Wells signing. I met Felicia *sun shines down, angels sing* and her band of merry chickas. We had fun, talked books and drank wine. I hope that we can make it a semi-regular thing.
- Finished Hexed and Hammered by Kevin Hearne.
- Finished [Audiobook] Glass House (Morganville Vampires #1) by Rachel Caine. I am glad to finally be checking out this series. The narrator is bueno and is a solid LIKE series.
- Finished Master of the Mountain by Cherise Sinclair. I read this for Why Buy the Cow for Free? Ebook Challenge. I was craving something a bit naughty and trusted Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal that this would be a good first BDSM book. She didn’t let me down.
Around the Book Blogging Community
- Free Technology for Teachers posted a link to a free converter of documents to ePub, so you can put them on your eReader. This may be a big help for students especially.
- Book Briefs discussed Positive v Negative Reviews. That’s always a tough one. I know that if I do a negative-ish review I keep it extra professional and I post a link to someone that liked the book.
- Ruby’s Reads did one of the best BEA Recaps that I read. It being her first time, I really enjoyed the experience through her eyes and great heart.
- At The Guardian Margaret Atwood on Ray Bradbury, the tale-teller that tapped into the Gothic core of America.
- Book Riot shared a graphic they picked up at BEA on Sub-Genres. This topic makes me quite crazy.
- teen’s legs…They have them. They use them to sneak out of the house or run away when the cops bust the party.
- white jack purcell sneakers…My blog is not the blog for shoe or fashion talk. Hope you weren’t too disappointed.
- country psych ward and escapes…I am slightly concerned about your vacation search terms. I wish you much luck, rest and recovery. Do not come to Joshua, TX.
