Sunday Post #12

The Sunday Post
Sunday Post is a weekly feature hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Reviewer. It's main purpose is similar to that of a Sunday newspaper; recap of the week gone by, additions to your library and what is going on in the book blogging community.

Personal News

We went to Madame Tussaud for TWO birthdays, Mr's as I mentioned in last week's Sunday post, and again for his Daughter's 13th birthday. 
Madame Tussaud 

They always get a combined cake as they're two days apart so yearly we do a family celebration and Father & Daughter get to share a cake.

This week was kinda slow at Paperback Princess as I recuperated from a very emotionally draining week. I also had two birthdays, hubby and step-daughter and we also had the kids for the week as it's the school holidays.

Around The Blogosphere 


I'm participating in COYER and this is the first Read-a-thon that they are hosting. Check out all the official stuff here and this is my post about COYER and the Read-a-thon. Join in! The more the merrier, it's a week-long Read-a-thon and you don't need to be participating on COYER to participate. 



This is a fantastic concept, pick a few books out of your TBR pile and others will vote on which you should read for the week, I love the accountability of Read-a-thons so check this out, if like me, you love read-a-thons. 



For those like myself that wasn't lucky enough to be able to attend the ALA San Francisco, here are a few recap posts. 



Book Nerd Reviews have a weekly "opinion" piece called Feral Friday, this week's topic happened to be interesting to me, and I'd love to all know what your thoughts are on it. Should people be able to put a rating on Goodreads if they haven't read the book yet? 

I personally do not think they should be able to as this throws off the whole averaging, so when people check out a book to see how good it is, it's not fair to show an average of 4 stars, when majority of those "4 star" ratings haven't even read the damn book, but click on the link to see what Kristy from The Book Nerd Reviews think. 

About to Read talks about Feedburner, to stay or to go? What are your thoughts?
