Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge (1)

Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is where Tara @ 25 Hour Books and Amanda @ On a Book Bender recap and share blog events from the week, and talk about what they’re reading. Now they’re letting the rest of us join in the fun! Head over to Amanda’s blog if you’d like to participate and link up.

WEEKLY RECAP
ANNOUNCEMENTS AND UPDATES
  • I got assigned a spot on the Ruby’s Reads debate team!
  • I’m starting the process of migrating this blog to WordPress, with help from Cialina at Paper Wings Design Studio.
  • I bullied my way into a mini-NaNoWriMo for this week with fellow writer/bloggers Amanda, Kelly, and Hannah. We each set our own writing goals for the week, and now we’re going to try to meet them.
AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE
  • By far the biggest news this week was the plagiarism scandal involving The Story Siren. I watched the embarrassing horror show all week and have decided to no longer follow Kristi via blog or Twitter. I will continue to participate in the Debut Author Challenge because I care deeply about supporting new authors, but I will not be linking back to Kristi’s DAC page. I’ll also no longer be participating in IMM, but you can find bookish updates on this meme in the future.
  • Alexis at Reflections of a Bookaholic discussed a Favorite Childhood Character – Laura Ingalls. It brought back lots of fond memories for me.
  • Midnyte Reader gave an amazing day-by-day recap of the World Horror Convention!
  • In continuing efforts to torture me, Aylee at Recovering Potter Addict posted another Waiting on Wednesday from a Big Six publisher’s catalog.
  • The hilarious team at Forever Young Adult started a new series highlighting Dolly Parton’s greatest hits, and OF COURSE opened with one of their signature recaps – of Steel Magnolias!
ODD SEARCH TERMS
  • steampunk boston terrier – I’m sure this person was incredibly disappointed, but now I feel the need to turn my Boston into a steampunk mascot for the blog!
  • skottie young comic book brave – How this person wound up here, I have no idea.
  • talk bubble – Good luck with that.

  1. Oh my goodness, thank you for the shout out! I didn’t even google myself and I found this. Hmmm, fate? So you’re switching to WordPress. I feel like I should just take the plunge. Congrats on your writing. I need to get back to mine soon.

  2. Muahahaha! I so enjoy adding to people’s TBRs… don’t worry, mine is insane too!

    I was conflicted this week about which of the countless new memes I would be supporting in the place on IMM. Maybe I’ll switch it up from week to week though, try out a few new things.
