The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
Things continue to be pretty hectic for me right now, as anticipated. On the blog things will continue to be pretty light moving forward, but January’s going to be great 🙂
As far as my day to day life – we got snow here in St. Louis and as a Texan, I hate it. I hate the cold and snow, because (1) I hate being cold and (2) I’m clumsy and need little help falling on my ass. Snow is too much help. On the plus side though, for once, things are actually better here weather-wise than they are in DFW. So many of my friends and family have been without power and pretty much confined to their homes for days because of the weather. So I’m glad that I’m here and hope it gets better before I have to travel home on the 20th. I can’t believe we’re moving back to Texas so soon – just 12 days away now!! I’m so excited, but there’s still so much to do. I have a paper due tomorrow (which I need to get off and work on, so sorry for not responding to comments right away) and a paleography project due on Wednesday. I have a review session to “teach” on Wednesday as well. And then next week are finals – mine and my students – so studying and grading. Thankfully my BF is doing most the packing, so I won’t have to worry about that while doing all the school work. Just a couple weeks we hit the road and invade my brother’s home until we can find our apartment in DFW. So excited!!

I’m mystified by Edelweiss and have actually only requested from it twice – both times for books I really wanted but had little chance of getting (and was declined both times). I’ve always seen it as a more complicated version of Netgalley. But this post, How to get the most from the catalogs on Edelweiss, from River City Reading made me see Edelweiss in a whole new light – as a great tool! Check it out!
I continue to find awesome reading challenges for 2104 and I need to figure out exactly which ones I’ll be signing up for (maybe all of them), but here’s a few more I found worth checking out:
New Additions to My Shelf
I continue to amaze myself with the number of books I seem to think I need to read. Hopefully I’ll actually find time for most of them next year…
