Bout of Books: Day 3

So, today is the big day! I fly to the US tomorrow, but I am off to London tonight ready for the early morning get up and flight time. I’m getting super excited now, just trying to stay a bit calm! I’m hoping to get quite a bit of reading done today if I can, but we’ll see how that goes later on!

Bout of Books: Day 2

First day gone already, it’s not long before I moan about how quick this week goes, so prepare yourself. I hope you all had an enjoyable Day 1, I made some OK progress, hope you did too! I wish I had been able to take part in the twitter chat, but Time Zone conversions just didn’t make it possible.

Today is the last day for you to sign up and get involved, so if you’re interested and want to know more:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 8th and runs through Sunday, May 14th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure.

Bout of Books 19/USA Trip TBR

This week is a big week for me. I am leaving on an action packed trip on Wednesday to the USA, and this week is Bout of Books 19 too. I technically signed up last week here, but I wanted to create a Bout of Books 19/USA Trip TBR list. I have a few days of the readathon, then I fly to the USA, so all in all I need around 12 days of books to read for all occasions. Continue reading

T5W: SFF Covers

It seems like this week is all about the pretty book covers and sexy cover art that is out there, doesn’t it. Yesterday, I posted as part of Top Ten Tuesday, and to continue this on, I am also doing the T5W SFF covers to compliment it. Yey for book covers!

Top Ten Tuesday: Book Cover Freebie

When you think about buying a new book, and you aren’t sure about what book you’re actually going to buy, a book cover plays a huge part in actually making that choice. I do love a shiny bright cover as much as the next guy. I also love a clever cover, or a new take on a classic. As you can tell, this is an awesome topic for me, so I have taken it and ran with it.

For all of you who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, or don’t know how to get involved, click here. The lovely folks at Broke and Bookish team together to produce a book related topic each week, and you simply list the top ten of that topic. Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday: Freebie! Desert Island Books

tttIt has been a while, hasn’t it. I have been up to my eyeballs in work lately. Yes, it is all my own fault, I’ve signed up to an excessive amount of overtime, and that will mean lots of money, but it has left me with a very limited amount of time to do things outside of work. Y’know, like remembering to take part in Top Ten Tuesday, oops. Oh well, couldn’t let a freebie week go past now, could I?
