bookgoonie Recap

bookgoonie’s World

  • Made my first shirt by screen printing and then had to make 18 more.
  • My soul was happy with the whole family reading in the pool on Sunday.Which is code for: No one was bothering me while I was trying to read. Notice my Johnson County way of water-proofing my eReader.

bookgoonie Reads

  • Finished City of Lost Souls (Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare.
  • Finished [Audiobook] Faefever (Fever #3) by Karen Marie Moning.
  • Finished Ten Thing We Did by Sarah Mlyownski
  • Reading & hope to finish before I go to bed tonight Bitterblue (Seven Realms #3) by Kristin Cashore.
  • Reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Put it down for the week, but ready to pick it up again on Sunday for the next leg.

Around the Book Blogging Community

  • Audiobook Week generated a few worthy discussions: A Book and a Latte & my fave Lucy @ The Reading Date shared Narration preferences. I agree Cynthia Holloway is great. She does the Morganville Vampire series.
  • Jess @ Gone With the Words had a great Guest Post from Susan Mallery talking about why Romance Appeals to Us.
  • Smash @ Smash Attacks Reads had Rhiannon Frater over for her World Building Segment to talk about The Last Bastion of the Living, her new futuristic zombie novel.
  • Book Riot talked about The Gender of Reading Shame.
  • Radiant Shadows does something kind of similar to the Clock Rewinders community called Required Reading.

  1. Got a lot of books this week, Amy! Ha.

    Reading by the pool with a margarita sounds lovely right about now. ;)

    • Ya. Half-Price Books!!! I’ve got all the Elder Races physical books now. I just need to read them & see what all the hub-bub is about.

      Poolside is the only way to read in TX. Too HOT!

  2. Um, your BOUGHT pile this week is awesomesauce! :D I still haven’t read Benny Imura. I think I just want to collect them all first at this point. LOL…
    Thanks for the shout out, and your brilliant waterproof eReader idea… ;)

  3. YES! *pumps fist* You’re going to start the Psy-Changeling books? I’m so glad. You’ll love them. I promise! Maybe I need to revive my Slave to Sensation read-along idea.

    Also, aren’t you brave! I couldn’t trust my Kindle to a ziploc bag. No matter how strong they may be, I’d find a way to rip a hole in it.

  4. Thanks for the link love :) You’ve been doing a ton of reading – way to go! Reading by the pool sounds just perfect and I may have to follow your lead with the e-reader water proofing. Cute shirt too!

  5. LOL! You’ve got mad skills when it comes to water proofing your stuff. And you should open a t-shirt making business.
