On The Blog Last Week







On The Blog This Week

In My Reading Life


Last week, I finished Some Possible Solutions: Stories by Helen Phillips and Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton. Then I read Rabbit Hill by Robert Lawson. Right now, I’m reading The Long Shadow of Small Ghosts by Laura Tillman.


 






In The Rest Of My Life


Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. Today is my birthday. If you want to celebrate with me, you could enter my giveaway. Please let me give you free stuff!
  2. Hamburgers!
  3. I participated in my first Twitter chat. It was intense. I can’t type that fast, people!
  4. I got new books. Not that I needed more books, but I got some, and I’m happy.
  5. The weather has been nice for running outside. It’s not snowing on me anymore.





Take care of yourselves and be kind to each other! See you around the blogosphere!

  10. Happy birthday!!
    It's been a while since I've done a Twitter chat. If you do one again, I highly recommend using http://tchat.io/ as your chatting platform. It goes off of the hashtag and acts as a chatroom. It also automatically includes the hashtag at the end of your tweet so you don't have to worry about it. ;)

  13. Happy birthday!!! Hope it's a great one! Filled with hamburgers maybe? :)

    Twitter chats kill me. Like my blood pressure probably spikes as I'm trying to reply to this tweet, but oh crap wait... that one too. Gah stop people lol.

    Good Morning, Midnight looks good, and I'm intrigued by the premise... plus that cover.

  17. First and foremost, I must wish you the happiest of happy birthdays! And now I want a hamburger. It's been a while, but I want a really good one. Congratulations on surviving the Twitter chat. That's just too much for this old woman.

  22. Happy birthday! I've never participated in a Twitter chat because they seem so intimidating and overwhelming like how do you even keep up or see everything that's going on???

    ReplyDelete
  23. Happy Birthday! :D I hope you had a fantastic day! I have never participated in a Twitter chat for exactly that reason--I get overwhelmed and just chicken out and watch instead. Also, we may not need new books, but they are always welcome. I loved Avi so much growing up, I look forward to seeing your review!

  30. Happy Birthday!! Hamburgers make me happy, too. I have one every year at a place down here in FL called Ford's Garage... they are the best!

    ReplyDelete
  31. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I have a love/hate relationship with twitter chats. They're so fun and intense, but at the same time they're intense. Haha. Which one did you do?

    And I'm interested in seeing your Spring TBR!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Happy Birthday. I'll check out your Spring TBR next week. Here's what I'm reading

  37. Argh, I missed your birthday while in self-imposed exile. I hope you had a great one, and that getting Thunderhead happened close enough to the day that you could pretend it was a birthday gift.
