Welcome to the 51st Edition of the Sunday Post!
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.
As of Monday, July 21st and 5:26 PM I got caught up on comments!! I answered something like 275 comments in 3 days, as a good many of you are very aware because you got email notifications each time I replied to your comment. I was so behind, so thanks for your patience and not going ballistic on me when I caught up and you got all those emails 😉 It’s been so nice to be caught up and I’m keeping up now. Oh and I’ve manged to get two full weeks ahead on blog posts, so that’s great too.
Also blog worthy news- Reanna @ Phantasmic Reads hosted Quarter Talk yesterday and invited 8 bloggers to talk about books during the second quarter. I was one of them! It was super fun and you have to go check out what everyone had to say – it was Me, Angie from Pinkindle, Ashley from Nose Graze, Jennifer from The Bawdy Book Blog, Jessie from Novel Heartbeat, Kimba from Caffeinated Book Reviewer, Lori from Romancing the Dark Side, and Rachel from Fiktshun. Can’t tell you how honored I was to be included among so many bloggers that I look up to 🙂
As for life – more of the same. Trying to find a job but no luck yet. I’ve applied all over the place and I’m starting to get a bit nervous. I’m hopeful, though, because I know I’ve got the experience and skills – it’s just so hard to find a job when you don’t have one. But I need to find one soon because with the way things have been going with my current grad adviser, my fellowship is probably going to be discontinued very soon. So fingers crossed. That’s it for me, y’all have a great week!

Great post from Kimba – Do we demand more from our books than reality? I know I do 😉
Those of you who do a lot of your own design work may really enjoy this post from Nosegraze, complete with 37 Fonts to download.
Nosegraze also had a post called “How Many Plugins is too many?” and it had me thinking I might need to go through my plugins and delete some. I don’t have very many really, but I don’t know that I’m using all the ones I do have.
And I had a blast reading this very funny – and so honest! – post from Carmel. “Does Reading Romance Make You Question Whether You Are Normal?”
Jennifer @ The Book Nympho & Carmel @ Rabid Reads are hosting STOMP VS ROMP again this year. As a UF & PNR fan, I’m really looking forward to it. Check out Team STOMP and Team ROMP for the line up of events and details.
New Additions to My Shelf
I failed massively on my no new requests/purchases rule this week. I went to NetGalley and hit request. I saw a good deal and 1 clicked. I got that email from Curiosity Quills and said “Oh, I’ll review that and that”… But I’m really looking forward to my new reads, so that’s a plus!
