The Sunday Post ~ 19th Edition

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

A nice three day weekend here in the states, and after being ill all week, I am enjoying it. I’ve been participating in the Ready, Set Read-a-thon and Labor Day Read-a-thon. I read and reviewed fifteen books for the Review Copy Clean-up Challenge and this month will participate in Heidi’s challenge @ Rainy Day Ramblings next month. Be sure and check it out. Have an awesome book filled week and be sure and visit the blogs participating this week.

Last week on the blog I brought you:

    I’m glad you’re finally getting better! Just in time for the weekend! Remember when I couldn’t find Demon’s Curse? I finally found it and turns it, I didn’t even have to ask for it, it was there!! (I’m whitelisted for S&S) I’ll have to go check out your other reads b/c I haven’t heard of them yet! And soooo awesome book box! You get the best boxes in the mail :)
