The Sunday Post

Posted on 10/21/2012 in Sunday Post / 16 Comments


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.


Last week on The Bawdy Book Blog

Coming up this week?

Well, currently I’m in Michigan visiting my mother, but I’m going to try to get a really awesome co-review up of The Perks of Being A Wallflower with April and Bex of My Shelf Confessions! It’ll be fun!  Kristina also has a couple more scary movie reviews as we get closer to Halloween (muahahahah) – and a cover reveal coming!  Don’t forget about Indie Author Excerpts – this week will feature Jon Fore’s Remnant Few.  Look for it on Friday!

Book Haulin’!

Stephanie at Cuddlebuggery is a bad, bad influence.  We met up at the Fierce Reads Tour stop at the Bethesda Library to hang out with authors Gennifer Albin, Caragh O’Brien, Leigh Bardugo, and Marie Rutkoski.  Since I got there early, I perused the used book sale racks and came away with 4 books.  Since I’m in Michigan, and I forgot to photograph them, I can only remember that one is a big Stephen King tome, another was by Jennifer Weiner and…well I’m lost on the other two.  I am proud to say I picked them up for a total of $4 though.  Pics next week, I promise. Since I was there for the Fierce Reads Tour, my main objective was books by those authors.  Who’s on a book buying ban now?  This girl.  I bought every book available by those authors.  $99 later, there I was, getting them all signed and peeing my pants a little bit.  It was an expensive day.

Hey, I could have worst spending habits than books.

Important Update if you subscribe to The Bawdy Book Blog via RSS or Email!

Google is a business and as such, businesses like to make money. There have been rumors circulating on the web here, here and here (okay, so the last one is less rumor and more fact) that Feedburner, the free Google service that feeds your content to people’s RSS readers, is going away next month.   Or, at least the API is, which means third parties can’t use the client (ie – widgets).  This means that anyone already subscribed to the old feed needs to re-subscribe to the new feed here at The Bawdy Book Blog.  Why?  Because I was proactive and decided to boot Feedburner before they could boot me.  

Resubscribe by clicking the button – unless you’ve already clicked the button, then don’t click the button, I don’t know what’ll happen, black-hole like spontaneous implosion?

  If you subscribed via email, even as recently as a few weeks ago, please resubscribe (only if you want to!) because I installed a new awesome widget (Jetpack – thank you Heather @ Book Savvy Babe & April @ My Shelf Confessions) and this allows a lot of customization for subscription options on your end and mine.  Oh, and it’s free.  Winner winner chicken dinner.  

Thanks to my job for my epic mailbox this week!  Without you, I would be too poor to buy books!

    Used bookstores are my kryptonite! There is a place that sells books by the pound…let’s just say I often forget that books can be heavy. >.>\n\n\n\nHave a great time in Michigan (go drink some apple cider! And have an apple donut! And don’t forget about the apple bread!), can’t wait to see your review for Perks!\n\n\nAmber Elise @ Du Livre

  5. ah, I really need to get my feedblitz account set up. I tried a few other feed things, but they didn’t work at all… annoying… Anyhow, love your book haul this week, sometimes it’s just necessary to go on a buying ban. Happy reading, catch you later! Book Savvy Babe
