Our Week in Books #36

Another week, another set of excuses why I’ve not done much blogging again. Lack of time despite children being back at school. Well, it was only a three day week, and I did tidy the cupboard under the stairs even if little else was achieved.

I really need to get a #300PBs linky up and running again, and sort out books for a giveaway, and post the new previews from Bonnier, Hachette and Little Tiger that look wonderful (so many gorgeous books coming out in the next few months…), and work on coding the new blog, and write about all the gorgeous books we have, and find all the gorgeous books we have in the first place to make sure I have them to hand (many are beside and under beds, they are being read lots!), and update Goodreads, and declutter the house, and…

So. Um. I’ve started sorting hama beads into individual colours instead of one big box of mess, and the loom bands are really well sorted, and I bought some more books from The Book People. Oh well…

  2. Skrillex is? like a baby carriage. It carries you through your first “dubstep” tunes. Then leads you to the amazing things. Not hating against Skrillex, guys.
