My Weekly Wrap Up is my version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kim at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This weekly meme is a chance to share news about your blog, books and life. It is also a perfect opportunity to meet bloggers and add more books to your collection.
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week.
This is has been a normal week but I’ve been really tired from working long hours. Ever since I was promoted to manager I’ve been working 9 to 10 hour days. That is a long time staring at a computer so I’ve been getting headaches and my eyes feel tired. This week I took a break from reading on my Nook and blogging. Instead of reading I’ve been exercising and listening to audiobooks. It’s helped with the headaches plus I’m finally getting some exercise. One of my supervisors is on vacation this week so when she returns I’ll insist on working only 8 hour days. So depending on how I feel I might take a break again this week.
My oldest daughter has an interesting class called Silence Sustained Reading (SSR). In this class the students bring a book to read every day and by the end of the term they need to have read at least 750 pages and write a book report. I wish I had this class when I was in school! For the class my daughter grabbed from my bookshelf Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Page and Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre. She loved both books and begged me to buy the next books in the series. I haven’t read these but after hearing her being so excited about the story I now have to read this. She’s really picky about what she reads and spends most of her time playing Sims so I’m really happy that she found enjoyment in these books. I ordered the next books on Amazon and so far she’s enjoying the sequels.

Around the blogosphere
I came across this giveaway sponsored by Source Books for the release of The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald. Vote for your favorite bookstore and you could win a $50 gift card. They will award the winning bookstore with a $3,000 prize. This is a great way to recognize local bookstores. I wish my city had a bookstore but I did vote for my favorite store that is 40 miles away.
I got mail!
I won a signed copy of Hearts in Darkness by Laura Kaye from Grace @ My Book Snack. This is my first book from this author and I love this story.
How was your week?
