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.
I have been quite busy lately. With the holidays here.. shopping... mailing... calling... and normal chores it has been busy. I have spent time each evening reading, playing video games and catching up on shows. I did go to a new thrift store in town and was able to find some books for cheap!! I can't believe in a week it will already be time to take down the Christmas decorations. It feels like just yesterday I put them up. Went to see the Hobbit this weekend... review will be up tomorrow. We just bought a new set of bookcases and pictures will be up next Sunday Post. I can't wait to get all my books into them.
Have you ever gone to a thrift store to shop for books???? Really you should. I ended up with a great haul from my local store. Well it is a newly opened store so I was able to get in there and look around before everyone went in a bought the books. These are books that I never owned but have read them all:
On the Blog:
-Bookish Gifts for the Holidays Bookish gifts are so fun... I love to find unique ones. Be sure to check this out and see if there is anything on the list you have to have.
-Walking Dead Season 2 Video Game Review Love these video games. So fun and for everyone!
-Eldest by Christopher Paolini finished the second book in the series! Only two more books to go.
Around the Blogospere:
-Bout of Books is coming! I am so excited I really have been wanting one to come for a while now. In case you have no idea what this is: 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 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.
-I don't really do reading challenges but I really enjoyed the Graphic Novels Challenge. So I am going to join up again with the Graphic Novels Reading Challenge 2015. I totally surpassed my goal this year so I am going to go big again this year and go for the highest level. Here are the levels:
Modern Age: read and review 12 books during the year (that's only 1 book a month)
Bronze Age: read and review 24 books during the year (Can you handle 2 books a month.)
Silver Age: read and review 52 books during the year (Are you up to a book a week!)
I am sure by now you all have seen the Insurgent trailer. Looks like it is going to be a good movie. I enjoyed Divergent. Of course... once the last movie comes out we'll see what I think:
