Let's chat about what's going on this week... on my blog.. on other blogs... on the internet... and just everywhere! I link up my post to Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Reader and Stacking the Shelves.
This week I am a little behind on visiting blogs because I have actually been reading. Yes that's true.. reading. My garden got pummeled by hail this week. Hopefully it bounces back. Not that a lot has been growing, but my pumpkins were doing really well.
On the blog:
-I review the book Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers.
-I talk about the graphic novel you have probably read about on all the blogs Saga.
-I participate in Top Ten Tuesday this week... because it's all about TV Shows
-This weekend is Mini Summer Bloggiesta I haven't been able to get a lot done so far but I plan on working on it tonight
- Comic Adventures Issue #15 is on the blog this week I talk about Fables, Nightwing, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and He-Man.
Around the blogospere:
-Why is blogging worth it? By Asti on Oh the Books. Love this!
-Have you guys been checking out Harry Potter month??? Here is a really great post about all the different houses by Blog of Erised.
-Some great book Self Portraits... I really love the Gulliver's Travel one!
- Did you see that World Book Night got suspended right now for lack of funds?? Sad! I wanted to actually try to participate this year.
-Barnes and Nobles does a Pop-Culture month! Looks like a lot of fun.
-Utah Book Month is coming! If you are from Utah or just love the state of Utah be sure to join up!
Now in the days of the internet and youtube Weird Al Yankovic isn't what he used to be. We see parodies all the time now. He is actually pretty clever though. I thought this video he just did would be appropriate on a book blog. It's all about writing and using proper English. It's quite funny.
Books Books Books:
This week I finished Gone Girl so be on the lookout for that review. I am going to go pick up Rebel Heart by Moria Young which is the last book in her Dust Lands trilogy. Of course I got a bunch of graphic novels.
