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.
This past week has been a week of playing catch up and I’m pleased to report I’m almost there! I still need to catch up on COYER posts, but I hope to spend much of today doing just that. I spent most of last week writing posts that I’d gotten behind on and my calendar is looking beautifully blue again (blue is my color for scheduled posts). And I realized that now that I’m not behind all the time I can actually do 3 book reviews a week again instead of just two – especially at the rate I’m devouring audio books. So I’ll be saying goodbye to my While I’m Reading Posts (a concept I really liked but found very labor intensive and hard to keep up with) and replacing them with a review every Monday starting in April. I spent Thursday cross posting reviews that I’ve written pretty much since the new year – that took most the day, but I’m current! Yay! And I have an item on my calendar to cross list the week’s reviews every Saturday, so I shouldn’t get behind with that again. I also caught up on comments! Friday evening and Saturday morning I spent roughly 8-9 hours replying to over 150 comments that I had gotten behind on! I’m really hoping I won’t fall behind again, but comments do seem to be a weak spot for me. All in all, I’m feeling very blog productive this week!
Personally things went really well this week too – I finally had a “this is the way it is” talk with my adviser for Grad School and I think my finally saying what I can and cannot tolerate made him respect me a little more – even if I know it wasn’t what he wanted to hear. Who knows, maybe I’ll actually survive grad school and get my PhD after all! So all in all, I’m feeling very positive going into this week and looking forward to a great week – I plan to do some serious reading today (inbetween commenting on COYER posts) and getting my 5k training back on track Monday. Hope everyone has had a great week too!

I didn’t manage to get around the blogosphere quite as much as I would have liked this week. However, I did mention a few weeks ago that Ashley @ Nose Graze was going to be launching her own web server. We’ll it’s officially open for business! She’s also got some other great promotions and wedding news, go check out her post.
New Additions to My Shelf
Last week I didn’t add any books to my shelf and it seems I was determined to make up for it by adding way too many this week. *sigh* I didn’t spend much money though… these are almost all freebies! Thanks to Tabitha Short, Random House Audio, Shannon A. Thompson, IFB Tours, and Cheyanne Young!
