Sunday Post #1

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
~this meme was inspired in part by - In My Mailbox~
It's a chance to share News.
A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
This is your news post, so personalize it. Include as much as you want or as little.
Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies.

There have been a lot of end of the year review post popping up in my RSS Feed.  I am going to openly admit that I have been a bit envious.  When I see all the books that others read, my little puny number is quite depressing.  Then there are those readers/bloggers that make graphs about the books that they have read.  The geek in me gets excited and I think "why didn't I do that?"  So this year, I promise myself that I will keep better records so I can open up my spreadsheet (did I mention that I love spreadsheets) and create cool graphs.

What Happened Last Week:
  • Monday: End Of Year Review - Where I show how I completely failed in 2012
  • Tuesday: Three teaser sentences from  Little Bee by Chris Cleave - Which I am really enjoying right now.
  • Wednesday:  Goals for the New Year - I blast the site with different challenges that I signed up for an my goals. (the link is to the main post)
  • Friday:  I showed off the cookbooks that I had discovered while reading other peoples blogs.
What's Happening This Week:
  • Monday:  Start of Bout of Books Read-A-Thon (I will have only on master post)
  • Tuesday: Teaser Tuesday from The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man by James Weldon Johnson
  • Wednesday: Wondrous Word Wednesday - Words that I had to look up while read Little Bee by Chris Cleave
  • Thursday:  Review of Little Bee
  • Friday:  Weekly Friday Finds Meme
  • Saturday: Weekly Stacking The Shelves Meme (which I completely forgot to do this week).

Happy Reading,


  1. Hope you enjoy all of your awesome new books.

  2. I tend to compare myself to other bloggers and it always saddens me. I'm stopping that right now. No more.

    Instead I resolve to copy (and make my own, of course) all the cool things that others are doing and that I covet. Cool graphs, definitely.

  3. I am a stay at mom, and I don't read half as many books as other people do. At first it bothered me, then I realized that it really matter as long as I read what I enjoy. Enjoy your week.

  4. I haven't been good at keeping tabs on my reading, other than the number. I am not too good at spreadsheets and charts, but I have had a great time seeing what everyone else is doing.
    I have to check out the Read A Thon. Love those.

  5. I'm hopeless at keeping track of my reading but I have to admit I love spreadsheets too - might just have an idea forming there.

    Graphs? Call me a nerd but that sounds cool, definite idea for this year!

    I know it's hard not to, but I always find comparing to other bloggers just depresses me, and I'm determined to try and compare less this year.

    Good luck with bout of books! I'll be taking part too, though I don't know how well I'll do!

  6. Happy Graph making! Good luck with Bout of Books and have an awesome week! The Sunday Post

  7. I love making graphs. To keep track of my books I use and make a 2012 reading challenge. Last yrs was 100 books this yr I'm only doing 50 but it keeps track for me.

  8. New follower! I think most readers are nerds at heart. I have spreadsheets of books I need to read plus spreadsheets of books and series that I've read. You've got to have a way to keep up with it all somehow.
