BBAW: Future Treasures

What a fantastic Book Blogger Appreciation week this has been!  I've added some blogs to my reader and books to my TBR lists, spent some quality time chatting with book blogging friends on Twitter and even won a couple of books!  I hope that you all have had a great week as well and have found some new treasures.  We're supposed to talk today about our goals for the coming year but I'm not good with those so let me just give you a quick rundown of what to expect over the next few months.

The rest of September and October are going to be mostly occupied with RIP Challenge reads.  I still have plenty left on my shelves and am always willing to help you out with recommendations if you need them.

I'm almost sure I will be participating in Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon in October (my first time)!  The timing just seems right for me to jump in this year.

I'm also going to be continuing through my "book behind the classic movie" reads.  I've loved the experience so far.

I feel like I need to shake things up a bit so I'm working on some ideas.  You can expect some guest posts and other fun features soon!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by this week.  It's been fun!  I'll be ending my giveaway later today and choosing some winners so go enter if you haven't yet.

Ending with a smile and a sigh,


  1. It seems like lots of bloggers want to try out some new features these days! :)

    Enjoy that delicious RIP pile of yours: I've got quite a few out from the library now, so I can revel too!

  2. I'm also considering trying joining Dewey's Read-a-ton this year for the first time. Like you, it's good timing: boyfriend out for the weekend, no major plans so far, cold weather almost guaranteed...

  3. Thank you for coming to visit me on my Dickens post; it's nice to meet you! I love the icon picture of the little boy reading with the cat on the couch, so endearing! I'm planning on reading a lot of RIP books, too, or at least getting one done, because I have a pile of reviews I've promised. I tend to overcommit... ;)

  4. It was a fun week, wasn't it? I'm not good with goals either. I wish I could do the read-a-thon, but we're going to be out of town and they'll expect me to actually do fun stuff with them.

  5. Eva - I saw some of your library books last night ... so exciting! I'm having a great time already.

    Alexandra - Yep. The kid has Friday off of school so we can get things done then and so I think I can take Saturday for myself!

    Bellezza - I have an incentive because I'm mostly reading from my own shelves and I really want to get through books I've had for a year or more!

    Carol - It's always been bad timing for me before but I'm hoping it works out this year. I just have to find some motivation to get up early as it starts at 5am for me!

  6. I think you'll have such fun with the Read-A-Thon ... just remember to take breaks. I found it hard to read for that many hours in a row than I thought it would be (and I only lasted 12 hours!)
