Welcome to the 72nd 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.

What a week! I had my last – and final – week of teacher certification classes last week and it was so intense! I actually went through and cancelled my posts because I just knew I wouldn’t be around. So I’m going to pretty much have last week’s schedule this week on the blog. The class was great though and I’m feeling both excited and hopeful about teaching. The instructor was a retired teacher who taught for 40 years, still subs and works closely with the districts, and won teacher of the year several times. Let me tell you, it was a real treat to learn from her! I still have to take my exam, do my observation hours and get a job, but at least this bit is done. I’ll be working on getting a lot of the other stuff setup next week. But I also plan to do some resting – my typical 5 hours of sleep cut back to an average of 3 hours a night last week and I need to unwind. I actually fell asleep when I was supposed to be working on my Sunday Post last night, so I’m already feeling much better 🙂
Stop by my post for Best Audiobooks of 2014 Blog Hop and be sure to visit the others – lots of good stuff to see and even an awesome giveaway 🙂
Blah! This week was horrible. It’s going to be rough for me to try and get back on track tomorrow, but I’ll do my best. Let’s just skip the averaging and say, roughly 5000 steps daily (half of my goal) and no tracking what-so-ever…

Somehow I managed to read so many amazing posts last week! I’m not really sure how I managed to go visiting – I think it’s just a testimony to how well the RSS reader works for me! Anyway, here’s bunches of goodies I found to share:
Laura @ trips down imagination roads shares her thoughts on Reading by Recommendation
Jessie @ Novel Heartbeat asks “Do I Enjoy Books Less These Days?”
Lola shared her recipe for Risotto with lots of cool variations and I’m super excited to try them out. Once I figure out where to buy risotto rice, which Michelle tells me is called arborio rice here. I’m so not a cook so that should be an adventure!
Herding Cats & Burning Soup’s latest Word from the Herd – “Are YOUR comments important to a blogger?”
Ramona @ My Bookish Life shares comments from the reading community about racial diversity in YA Fiction
Carmel @ Rabid Reads asks “How Do You Read A Series?”
Reanna’s 4th Quarter Talk is out with some fun insights and thoughts from 9 bloggers!
Jonetta @ The Book Nympho’s latest Talking Between Reads asks “The Story’s The thing… or is it?”
Felicia tells us all that we need to give ourselves a break – and she’s right!
Added to my Shelf
Just one book this week – it was a preorder that I hope to start this week, even if the reviews are really mixed. It was an audible credit, so still haven’t broken my rules for buying books this year 🙂
