At this time I will no longer be taking any new review requests or participating in any memes. There will still be author interviews, blasts, guest posts and occasionally reviews posted (as I climb through by TBR pile!!). Life is kind of hectic and I have to focus on a few other commitments before coming back full-time to my blog. Thank you to everyone that has supported me and I won't be gone forever. I will still be around on my social media sites!

November Wrap-Up + RAK



Wow! What a crazy month!! Really look forward to my vacation...LOL. Anyways as you can see I have a new design thanks to Enna Isilee @ Squeaky Books. She just did a fantastic job!! She took my very vague "things I like" list and created such a wonderful layout and at a very reasonable price! It was my Christmas gift to myself...:D If you are looking for someone easy to work with and who listens to you, I would highly recommend her. She has also designed my friend Marcie's blog @ To Read or Not to Read. If you are interested you can email her @ Squeakybooks AT yahoo DOT com. Let me know what you think about my new design and if you like it please praise Enna..:D

As for reading, things have been slow just because of all the holiday craziness so didn't have to many knocked off my TBR pile. Now I am just gearing up for a new year starting soon and a fresh start! Like I posted above, I will be taking a much deserved vacation around Christmas. I will have posts scheduled but I won't be doing the memes and other smaller posts. I will answer emails but I won't be scheduling anything until January and of course I will keep an eye on my Twitter..:D I am just wanting to spend some quality time with my family and maybe read some books without my "reviewer's cap" on. I did sign up for Adam's @ Roof Beam Reader's 2012 TBR Pile Challenge again for next year (I didn't do so well this year..oops).

Another item I added to my blog is my BOOKSTORE. It is a work in progress (I have a lot of books..LOL) and so far it has been a successful venture. I am willing to deal on all prices so please take a gander and remember that I add books often (check the date at the top).

Also wanted to remind all of you that the GFC gadget will no long work if you are not a Blogger member and may be soon obsolete for all of us. I highly encourage you to sign up via email subscriber. It is usually just one email a day (unless you set it differently it is your choice) and your email address is safe with me (it will never be sold). Next year I plan to hold a monthly drawing exclusively for my email subscribers with a choice of any books from my bookstore HERE.

Well that is about all I have to say for now! If I forget I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
