The Sunday Salon (April 10)
So! The readathon was pretty awesome, right? I only read one book, myself, but I had a FANTASTIC time cohosting and being in charge and HAVING THE POWER to, like, do stuff. It was fun! Thanks so much to everyone who came and visited the readathon blog and left such nice comments! And especially thanks to my fellow readathon volunteers, cohosts and cheerleaders, who put so much work into making the ‘thon awesome!
I suppose I didn’t realize it before, but the hours I was cohosting (and the hours before and after when I was helping out) were really exhausting as well as fun. It all went so quick but I’ve been left tired and out of sorts. I think this happens to everyone who participates in the readathon, so I’m not overly worried about it. It’s just a little annoying, I guess.
How are you feeling in this post-readathon time? Are you really, really tired as well? All booked out?

In My Mailbox (22)
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren (who was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie‘s This Week in Books). Basically you just post about new books that came into your house over the past week, whether in the mail or by getting them at the library or by buying them in a store. Capiche?
I’m technically not accepting books for review from now until, er, whenever, but sometimes a surprise book comes in the mail. This showed up on Thursday, and doesn’t it look really interesting? It’s got stories from some of my favorite authors, so I’m really excited to read it!
See that ad in the top left corner? Yup, it’s still of sponsor Kevin Gerard, author of the Conor and the Crossworlds books, a YA fantasy adventure series! It’ll be up there until the end of April, but don’t forget to check out the website now if you’re interested.
Also, I’ve got books for sale at Half.com! Yay!
