B.O.B 15

Bout of Books 15

I'm totally getting a late start on signing up and getting organized for the next round of Bout of Books, but I will definitely be participating!  There is still time to sign up, if you're interested.  Here's the link you'll need.

What is Bout of Books, you ask?  Well, here's a little blurb from our esteemed hostesses:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal.  It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 4th and runs through Sunday, January 10th in whatever time zone you are in.  Bout of Books is low-pressure.  There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional.  For all Bout of Books 15 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. --From the Bout of Books team

It's such an exciting event and really low-key, which is something I am definitely in the mood for!

Here is what's on my tentative agenda:
  • Read as much as possible (duh!) without obsessing about it
  • Participate in challenges
  • Actually tweet about it...and participate in Twitter chats
  • Have fun!
Possible Books:
  • Welcome to Temptation by Jennifer Crusie (this will count for B.O.B. and my Bookish Bingo reading challenge...hello, fruit on the cover!)
  • TBD...
Happy reading, fellow Bout of Bookers!

Where'd Ya Go?!

Sorry for the lack of posting these past two months, dear Readers.  I spent the entire month of November, and the majority of December, out of my office doing high school recruitment events for the university I work and, wouldn't you know it, my laptop decided to take a vacation at the same time!  So...no office time and a lack of computer doesn't really help in the consistent posting department.  Also, I worked quite a bit of overtime and didn't want to look at a computer or think very much once I plopped myself down on the couch.  Ha.  Regardless, I received a shiny new HP laptop/tablet thingy (clearly technology is my forte), on which I'm typing away, for Christmas.  This should significantly help my posting habits!  Word. 

Things to look forward to in the future: 
  • Getting back into posting in conjunction with other blogger memes/events
  • More book reviews
  • Visiting bloggers.  WHAT!  That's right :)
  • Some original writing
  • And anything else that strikes my fancy...maybe some recipes...crafts.  The possibilities are endless!
In the meantime, happy reading, fellow bloggers!
