Extra! Extra!

Extra! Extra! is my weekly Sunday post featuring any and all exciting blog news.

This Sunday I'm linking up to Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and also Sundays in Bed With hosted by Kate at Midnight Book Girl.  Hmm.. There may be no Sundays in Bed today as Kate is doing a read-a-thon. We'll see.

  3. Looking forward to your reviews of Crewel and Velveteen! I liked both books and I hope you did too. I am also hoping to have more of a reading lull at the end of this year but I think it will probably be spent catching up on all the books I missed earlier.

  7. I am so behind on reading this month. It started with my reading slump in September and I am still playing catch up. November is still a little busy for me, but December is a nice slow month. Great books this week! Can't wait to see your review of Velveteen next week. I DNF'd it. :(
