Welcome to the 56th Edition of my 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.
Thank you to everyone for the well wishes and finger crossing for my job interview. It went really well and, if you could please, keep wishing and crossing fingers – I’m supposed to hear back this week! It was a committee interview – so I sat at the end of a big board room table, filled with 6 people interviewing me. Thankfully this is a position at the university where I got my Bachelors degrees, so I knew three of the people (am Facebook friends with one of them actually). And I did my research, so I knew who two of the other three were – so only one brand new person. Funny story – they asked about my technical skills, including my familiarity with web and social media. I never dreamed my blog would be applicable to the field I want to get into, but I told them about it and my familiarity with CSS/HTML and there was definitely some excitement. Anyway, fingers crossed – they were interviewing two other applicants I believe.
I spent all day yesterday getting caught up with reviews (thanks to the ReviewAthon) and so today I’m planning to catch up on reading blog posts, comments, and hopefully getting some posts scheduled. I’d like to get some reading done today too – I’m falling a bit behind. I just don’t know where the time goes! And can you believe tomorrow is September? I sure can’t!! Hope you all have a great weekend (and holiday here in the US).

Sadly, LitRate did not get the funding it needed 🙁 However, I’m really impressed with how many people supported it and I do hope that NoseGraze and her husband, Coding God, might find another way to make this happen. Doesn’t look good, but a girl can hope, right?

New Additions to My Shelf
Let’s just say that if I was planning on not acquiring new books… this week I failed miserably. Funny how happy failing can make a girl 😉 I actually won the Contemporary Romance package at Nomi’s Paranormal Palace 2 year blogoversary giveaway and 11 of the books in this amazing prize package have come in already (I still have 10 more coming though!!). It’s going to take me months just to read those books. Yay! Thanks so much to Naomi and all the amazing authors for this fantastic prize package! I also won the Book Briefs Tortured Souls giveaway – Thanks Michelle & Kimber Leigh Wheaton! This was just my lucky week!
