The Sunday Salon/The Sunday Post - November 3rd

If you'd like to participate with The Sunday Salon, just click the button above.

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.

Happy Sunday!

I went ahead and set up the 2014 reading challenges that I'm hosting next year. It was just easier for me to do it now. If you're interested in signing up, here are the links:

2014 What An Animal Reading Challenge VII
2014 Cruisin' thru the Cozies Reading Challenge
2014 Finishing the Series Reading Challenge

I also have Goodreads groups for all three challenges. At least that's out of the way :)

It's been another busy week on the blog. I can't believe Halloween is already over but it is and it's almost 2014.  Who could believe time would fly this fast? 

I know I won't be meeting my 100 books read for 2013, but that's okay.  I think I will get close.

I hope you all have a great week and read many great books!

  9. I already signed up for the cozies challenge and I'm considering the animal one. I was surprised when I saw your sign up posts, as it seemed early, but it's really not that early. Still, I admire your organization.

  10. I pretty much gave up on yearlong challenges. I suck at at keeping up with them. lol. Hope you get close to 100 books, at least!
