Welcome to the 66th 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.

Well, this week couldn’t quite live up to the last couple weeks, but it was still pretty good. Sunday and Monday I wasn’t feeling too good, but nothing serious. Beyond that, it was a pretty good week. We put up our Christmas Tree and I started wrapping presents to put under the tree- which is one of my favorite Christmas activities. I’ve also been enjoying re-teaching myself to knit. I’ve just been doing all kinds of practice stitches and I think I’m going to try and make a pot holder this week. I’m just having fun getting back to it. My mom has also been getting back to her sewing – she’s making Buffy a rain coat and it’s going to be so cute! We also had some left over apples from the apple pie and I made this really simple, really yummy apple crisp. I still have some more apples, so I may make it again or try something else. Anyway, an average, but really good week!
COYER is coming up in just two weeks! I’m super excited and for the first time ever I’m not behind as it approaches, so that’s super exciting! If you haven’t yet, sign up here. Hope you can join us!
Michelle and I also announced a 2015 challenge we’ll be doing this wee – 2015 Reading Assignment Challengek! I’m really excited about it and, even though it’s going to be pretty challenging, I think it will be great for my TBR. Sign up here.
Finally, I’m co-planning an event involving Cozy Authors and would love it if you know any Cozy Authors – personally or just love their books – and could direct me towards them. Thanks!

My TBR List | December 2014 Results
We’re starting to see bunches of new (and repeat) challenges for 2015 pop up! I’m so excited and trying to figure out which one’s I’m going to go for. Rather than list all of the ones I’m considering (there’s a lot) – you should check out this site that catalogs the challenges! I’m so excited to have found it – watch out, this could be dangerous! – and be sure to add challenges if they aren’t listed.
Lola had a great Lola’s Ramblings post about Blurbs – what makes them good or bad?
Julie @ Chapter Break had a great post listing the “10 Reasons I will rate a book 2 stars”
Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat is having a Follower Appreciation Giveway! Show her some love & follow 🙂
If you have a self-hosted WP blog you may want to check out Lexxie’s post about “WP Security.” I’m a bit nervous now…. but it’s good to be informed!
*I’m no longer listing book purchases/grabs every week, but saving them for my monthly Pinching Pennies posts, so come back then to see what I added to my shelves*
How was your week?
