WooHoo!!! And Pimpin'

I am a survivor!! I still have sniffles and such but I am so much better!

Bob now has it but he is ten times the trouper I am. He plans on going to work today. Course he has been doping himself up with Contact C. That alone lets me know just how bad it is as Bob won't take ONE tylenol for a headache.

So a few things are going on.

1. Nath, Ames and Chantal have opened up a group review site!



Looks like one of their goals is to do joint reviews. I have always enjoyed Nath's, Ame's and Chantal's blogs and their separate reviews. I actually think they read many different books so it will be interesting to find out what three different people think of a book I just might want to buy!

I added the link to the sidebar but I need to have the colour change or make it so you can find it easier. I'm on it!

2. AAR's Annual Reader's Poll is winding down. It's the 15th of February and you have until midnight of the 17th!!! That gives you the weekend to nail down those favs. Just do it for fun! That's what it's all about. To find out what others read and how you matched or didn't.

Click here to get to the ballot and VOTE!!

3. Keishon's back!! I wouldn't have the first clue how to back up my blog so I'm antsy BUT, if you want to read about the TBR Challenge than click here. Like Keishon says, it's totally for fun and for those wanting to play, encouragement is always the way! Also - Keishon will put up a 100 dollar Amazon Gift Certificate that she will draw for for those who do the challenge every month. I don't know about you but that there is some incentive!

With Keishon's permission I might do a monthly reminder the week before TBR Challenge Wednesdays. That way those who are forgetful (ME) will have a week to get a book read. I wonder if I can get my computer to remind me? AND it starts in March so we have a month to organize ourselves.

4. And Karen's blog is also back up!! She watched North and South and Kristie(J) is going to swoon with delight cause she liked it, she really liked it!

All great news! I tell ya, blogs start disappearing and I get antsy so I'm glad they are back and that there are new blogs coming along all the time!

Finally:

This weekend will probably be a laze about kind of weekend if I know what's in store for Bob. The good news is there is plenty of painting that can happen and I'm very pleased with the colour I picked for the hallways and loft of the house - it's called Hiking Trail by CIL but if you look at it on the computer it just looks black. It's a beautiful dark grey with a purple undertone. Gorgeous!

Okay, sickie Bob is up. I must go and be sympathetic.

Poor Bobby.

I'm glad you're feeling better. Poor Bob. So glad you posted this otherwise I would have been left out and I hate that. I already submitted my ballot. I didn't know about Keishon's TBR challenge. I love those. Now you have no excuse, you will get one book read a month at least and maybe you'll want to read more.

Ditto what Nath said, thanks for getting the word out there about TBR day! One book a month isn't bad. Yes, Cindy, you can do reminders for us all as I know I would appreciate it. This is a community thing so I appreciate your wanting to take a role in this and thanks again!
