Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves.

Books Books Books:
I didn't get any books this week... a few graphic novels from the library. I am excited to read two of them. One is Age of Ultron which is what the next Avengers movie is based off of. The other comic I'm excited to read is the He-Man vol 1 ! I love He-Man and so I am soooo ready to read this one.
Sign up for my and Kimba's reading challenge if you have a lot of ARCs sitting around! I still need another host for the 3rd and 17th of May, so please email me if you are interested.
I'm so jealous you are going to Comic Con! that's awesome. It's totally on my bucket list. lolReplyDelete
This is my second time going. It is pretty fun. I can't wait for when they put out the schedule!ReplyDelete
Comic Con, congrats! Would love to get out there someday...I haven't seen much of the new Cosmos, but I've seen repeats of the old series and it was pretty cool. I've heard the new one is good too...ReplyDelete
Great video of the screaming goats LOL. Gotta love it!
Screaming goats are funny no matter what. Cosmos is really a neat show and I love Neil Degrasse Tyson!ReplyDelete
Have fun at Comic Con, and I saw that Game of Goats yesterday and couldn't stop watching it! Haha. So funny. I am also glad you liked Capt. America!!ReplyDelete
Oh, Cosmos by Carl Sagan, I remember watching it (and reading it) with my father years ago, a good memory. Game of goats, that's so funny lol ! I'll read the article about the book blogging slump later, I have to read some Locke and Key to give them back to the library ;) Have a great week !ReplyDelete
You always share the funniest videos! I hear lots of great feedback about Captain America: Winter Soldier... I'm considering watching it even though I'm not a huge Marvel fan :DReplyDelete

Enjoy San Diego, sound like a lot of fun there. I do love a good convention. Your feet will hurt ….ReplyDelete
Comics is the one genre I don't actually read, but hope you enjoy them :)
Have a great week and Happy Reading.
My Sunday Post is here
Nice! It's always nice to have week where you don't add much of anything to the TBR pile. Gives you the chance to play catch up!ReplyDelete
Here's my STS
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
I hope you have fun at the Comic Con! Awesome that you managed to get everything sorted for it :)ReplyDelete
Enjoy your week! It is good to have an empty mailbox occasionally. I need to read more of my TBR books.ReplyDelete
MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES
Congrats on being able to go to Comic Con. :) Enjoy the week ahead.ReplyDelete
Jenea @ Books Live Forever's Sunday Post
That goat video is hilarious!ReplyDelete
Missie @ A Flurry of Ponderings
I have yet to make it to a comic con but they have one in NY I want to try and get to this year, I think my son would love it.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to the challenge you are hosting with Kimba, I am going to start writing out the starter post this week, I need to make a list of what I want to read.
Hope you have a great week :)
We're going to see Winter Solidier this coming weekend. And I totally need to go to a Comic Con before I die. lol Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Comic Con...woot! How exciting. I want to see Captain America. Glad it rocked. I am going to check blogger burnoutReplyDelete
Hi Angela, thanks for visiting my blog. I am looking forward to the challenge; I certainly need the kick in the butt! :DReplyDelete
Congrats on your ticket and hotel room for Comic Con. I'm also jealous. I bet you will have a lot of fun. In the meantime, happy reading!
I just watched the Captain America movie last night with my sister. Great movie! Loved the humor and all the action. My sister and I were wondering what on Earth Tony Stark must be thinking in New York when this was all going on lol. Probably something like "eh, not my movie. I'm not worried about it." haha ;)ReplyDelete
Oh I really hope you'll enjoy the Comic Con! I was never a huge fan of comics but it seems much more than just bunch of cosplays! I cannot wait to hear your impressions. :) Great post :)ReplyDelete
Tanja @ Ja čitam, a ti?
Game of Goats is so funny! I was like who had the time to sit around and put this video together! They are my hero!ReplyDelete
Locke and Key!! I love Locke and Key so much. More people should read them. I am going to check and see if my library has the Carl Sagan Cosmos show. I would love to watch it again.ReplyDelete
Thanks.... I love to find funny videos on the internet. I usually find some good ones by the time Sunday rolls around. I would totally recommend seeing Captain America. It is a great start to the summer movie season.ReplyDelete
I am not only playing catch up on books but tv too!!ReplyDelete
I like conventions too. I went to the one in Denver once and it wasn't anything compared to the San Diego one!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
I'm anxiously waiting for the free audio books! I got my eye on a fewReplyDelete
Can't wait to get to the con!ReplyDelete
How fun!! I love what they have available this year.ReplyDelete
Glad it put a smile on your face!! Love it!ReplyDelete
I can't believe May is almost here and the challenge will begin. I am excited to help motivate everyone to get their books read. Thanks so much for joining us!ReplyDelete
LOL! Comic Cons should be on everyone's lists to go to before they die. I look forward to seeing what you think of the movie!ReplyDelete
I will have plenty of time at the Con for reading... you just sit in line sometimes for a really long time. I just make sure I read in that line!ReplyDelete
I was thinking that too... I mean it was so serious to me what was going on that you would think the Avengers might pop on over and help out. I mean really???? But I guess Captain ended up handling it.. lol!ReplyDelete
OH yea... the cosplay is a lot of fun too. But at the San Diego comic con there is WAY more then just that. I went to the Denver Comic Con and that one was more just coplay panels and what not.ReplyDelete
Please give me a moment while I wipe the tears out of my eyes from watching that goat video.ReplyDelete
So jealous! That's like one of my dream trips.
Thanks for linking up to my post about traveling with an e-Reader. :)
Comic Con - Sweet! Hope you have a blast.ReplyDelete
Congrats on getting the hotel and tickets for Comic Con! I hope you have so much fun and I better see some pictures from it ;) Thanks for sharing the Summer schedule for Sync, those books look awesome. Can't wait to get my hands on them :)ReplyDelete
I can't wait to start listening to Sync's book. I have downloaded them for a few years now and it's great!ReplyDelete
Lots of posts for me to check out, now! Including your top ten unique book packaging, because that sounds AWESOME!ReplyDelete
Oh, hey Angela, the link for the blog notes project leads to a Stephen King graphic novel post on a different website... I'm thinking that's not right, so thought you should know!ReplyDelete
Congrats on getting tickets and a room for SDCC! I've lived here for awhile and still haven't made it yet. It sounds like crazy fun, so I hope you have an amazing time. :)ReplyDelete
Wendy @ The Midnight Garden
I signed up for the clean sweep arc event. I can't wait! :)ReplyDelete
I also loved captain america. I thought it was even better than the first one.

Michelle @ Book Briefs
OH man!! Thanks for letting me know! OOPS!! I'll update that now!ReplyDelete
Audiobook Sync! So many great picks - and luckily ones that I've been really wanting to read! Kinda forgot about them, so I'm glad you reminded me! :)ReplyDelete
Ah Comic Con, I don't know if I will ever make it there, so please detail your trip minutely when you go! And the Blog Notes Project is a great idea - I've just signed up for it!
Yea... another person joining in the challenge!! So fun!! I thought the second Captain America was better then the first also!! Loved it.ReplyDelete
That's one of the reason's I love Sunday Posts. All the links to other blogs that people share. I find out about so many different things going on in the book blogging world.ReplyDelete
no books this week! for shame! LOLReplyDelete
I'm so jealous that you get to go to comic con! I'm going to try to go when it comes to Toronto but I'm not holding out much hope since I'll be broke lol. I hope you have a good time.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my Sunday Post
-Kimberly @ Turning the Pages
I know right!!! I did just finish Cinder that I won from you!! WOOT!ReplyDelete
I hope you get to go. The San Diego Comic Con isn't that expensive actually. It's like $40 a day which isn't bad for all that you get to do and see.ReplyDelete
