TSS (Nov. 28) & IMM (6)

The Sunday Salon (Nov. 28)

The Sunday Salon.com So I had a really good Thanksgiving break! I read a lot, I relaxed, and I completely threw all my upcoming essays and tests and horribleness out of my mind. And then I forgot to do any review-writing. It was fun! The next three weeks won’t be fun, but once I get to the other side I’ll be free of college FOR-EV-ER! Or at least until I decide to go for my master’s. (Hint: It won’t be any time soon.)

I may be absent for the next few weeks, but then again I might not. Knowing me and my addiction to blogging, I probably won’t be. Although I might be less on Twitter than I normally am. (Or maybe I WON’T.)

Don’t forget! Send your Book Blogger Holidays Cards by FRIDAY, fill out my readership survey by whenever I decide to close it, and ENJOY YOUR LIFE, people who don’t have finals.

In My Mailbox (6)

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?

Only one new addition this week:

I bought it because the translation is supposed to be a really good one (the freebie version has an older translation that also cuts things out?), so hopefully I won’t have any problem reading it!

    1. Yay! I’m glad the translation is good– mostly I don’t think about translations except for middle English stuff, but I’m beginning to understand the importance of a decent translation vs. a mediocre one.

  1. Glad to hear you had such a great break. I’m not looking forward to the upcoming weeks either. I have a huge paper due in less than two weeks and I’m still trying to find relevant research. *sigh* Have a great week.

    1. Actually 2.5 weeks, because I’m done with tests and such halfway through finals week. Graduation is on the last day of finals week, though, so it’s 3 weeks total after all. (More like two weeks, now.)

      And thanks! 😀
