Outside the Book 08.18.2013

Yeah, it's been a quiet week around here.  If you don't follow me on Facebook, here is what happened.  I'm been having some wrist issues which I figured out had to do with my not exactly ergonomically correct setup of having my laptop on the kitchen table.  So, I decided to take a bit of a rest by limiting my typing time.  I was able to keep up with blog reading thanks to my iPad and I did take time to answer some emails and such, but other than that, I stayed away from posting anything for a few days.

Luckily, my wrist is feeling better now.  I know I need to be a bit careful about it from now on--but I'll be cautious about my mindless web surging and not my posting!

I can't say that I made much progress on my TBR list this week....I spent most of this week reading Blood and Beauty (link is listed below).  I'm working on what will probably a pretty quick read and then I'm diving back into some solicited reviews.  I also have a number of books I received through giveaways (I apologize for all my GoodReads friends--I'm a bit addicted to their First Reads giveaways!) that I hope to get in as well.  All that being said is that there probably won't be as many reviews for a while.  I don't have a backlog to go on, so I'm just putting out books as I read them (or as the review date I agreed to comes up).

I will be back with my Raising Readers posts next week.  The only reason a post didn't go up this week was my wrist issue.  However, if anyone is interested in doing a guest post for Raising Readers, please let me know!  I have some upcoming posts in mind, but there is always room if someone wants to help out with it.

Okay, and that is it for this, back to reading!


  1. Uh oh :( You might want to get a wrist brace. It will force you to hold it correctly while typing, etc.

    1. Yeah, I think I might. Just what I need...a wrist brace to go with my ankle brace (nagging injury that won't go away...)
