Slacker!

Yes, I am a slacker. I haven't finished any of the reviews I'm needing to do. But I have an excuse! Two excuses at least, actually three... #1: I've been reading a lot more than I used to, and it's so distracting. Not to mention easier to take along with me to work on slow Saturdays than a notebook to write down a review. #2: I started to write one of my book ideas. Well, I've been jotting down things more since the beginning of spring, but I've actually started to write out scenes, not just summaries of scenes. So, I've been sitting in front of my laptop for an hour or two per day with a few books surrounding me for advice on writing. #3: My iPod almost deleted half my songs Saturday night! I was frantically searching online for what to do, but thankfully, it was just a glitch. Kinda made me panic though. I don't have enough space on the laptop for backup music files. Now I'm planning on putting money aside to replace both my laptop and iPod before I get myself a Nook. Oh well.

Three more things... First, I started a Facebook page on my blog, but, if you're already following on here, it may seem redundant to follow on FB too... But it would still be cool! I just thought it would be nice for people without Blogger accounts to keep up to date on my book blog. There's a quick like link on the side of this page if you want to "like" my blog on Facebook. ^_^ Secondly, I'm thinking about how much I want to do a book giveaway. I've decided that once I hit a certain number of followers, then I'll host one. So... maybe the beginning of this summer? What do you guys think? As far as what books I'll give away... that's classified. ;) Trust me, they'll be good ones! And third, I'm thinking about starting a weekly meme here... I'll have to see if the idea in my mind has been done before though.

Until next time my fellow book lovers!

  1. Hi! I just found your blog, and I'm your newest follower!

    I totally get what you mean about getting caught up in reading, and neglecting writing reviews. Haha, it happens to me all the time :) Congrats on starting to write more of your book! That's so cool! Yikes! I would freak out to if my music ever got deleted. Thank goodness it was just a glitch!

  2. Haha You sound just like me! I get lost in the books and now that I have been writing feverishly I have barely had time to keep up with my blogs! I have spent the last two days just trying to get caught up on the blogs I follow let alone my own! <3
