Doe anyone else lose hours of their time tweaking, playing with picMonkey, and such for their blog? I can get sucked in rather quickly and the next thing you know three hours have gone by *shrugs* but I made cute new feature buttons. We had our first frost this week. I swear coffee tastes divine when the air is chilly and I am wearing fuzzy socks! I’ve got a lot happening on the blog. I am co-hosting the Black Friday Book Bonanza Hop and sign-ups posted this week. I’ve been working on March’s Take Control of Your TBR Pile (sign-up posts Jan. 6th) and May’s Clean Sweep ARC Challenge. I usually invite a blogger to co-host Clean Sweep each year with me (someone who hasn’t done events on their own and wants to gain experience), if you are interested please use the contact form and let me know. The Ho-Ho-Ho read-a-thon is only a month away..you still have time to sign-up and gather winter or holiday reads. I added book icons to my posts (see around the Blogosphere). Ooo and I am going to BEA in 2016. I have a roomie and we’ve booked our hotel. Squee! Sorry, I was MIA last weekend, a severe headache kept me from participating. Be positive, uplift others and stay Caffeinated!

Around the Blogosphere
- I am addicted to Ashley @ Nose Graze’s UBB plugin and add-ons. Which is why I am an affiliate. I use them and totally recommend them. Wednesday I bought her UBB Icon Tags Add-on and then bought Parajunkie’s Flat Book Blogger Icons . Love them! I like that it also creates a taxonomy for them, click one and you see all the books I labeled with a particular icon.
- Kathy @ Kathy Reads shared, “All Hallows Reading Treats from Kiddie to Adult“
- I started a Facebook group, “Caffeinated Book Club” for folks to get together, kick their shoes off and chat about books. My hope is that we can choose a book each month to read and discuss. Just like a physical book club, but virtual. If this interests you, please ask for an invite. Each month we will choose a different book. All genres will be on the table. The idea is to get each other to try new genres from YA to Adult, from romance to literary fiction.

I made good food choices and chased a very active Princess around all week. With my head cold, I didn’t walk as much as I would have liked and the blog tweaking sessions did nothing except make my backache. I am going to look into some fitness videos. We nixed the treadmill since the little one is here.
