Clock Rewinders (05/12/13)

Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is the brain child of Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Tara @ 25 Hour Books.  I'm inviting myself to their party (as I sometimes do) because I have so damn much fun reading Amanda's posts that I couldn't help myself.

Reading the Paranormal Week in Review
Bookish Delights
Goodreads Stats - Loosely borrowed from Tara @ 25 Hour Books
Don't forget...
  • ...Bout of Books starts TOMORROW... well, tonight at midnight. I'm going to be reading! Will you?
Check it out!
  • Seriously Series weekly update: Bout of Books prep ended up eating a few days out of my week. BUT... I still managed to make some progress on my series books!
    • Series started in 2013: 14/18 (+2 since last week)
    • Series started before 2013: 8/18 (+1 since last week)
    • Series rereads: 4/12 (static)
News from around the blogosphere:
  • Amanda and Gaby give us the second part of their ongoing series on (re)Discovering the Basics. This time they're looking at the things that can be added to make a blog easy to navigate
  • Kevin Hearne dispenses his wisdom in his trademark witty way - Writing encouragement No. 2.
  • Which reminds me... Kevin Hearne took a look at the economics of touring - this time from the bookstore's perspective. I'm immensely grateful that one of the indie stores in my area is able to invest the time and money into bringing authors in. I have met several of my favorites through them and there are several more in the works (Kevin Hearne being one of them!).
  • Veronica Rossi has an OUTSTANDING post on how she wrote her books. Beside the fact that she's a doll, I love what she has to say about writing in a vacuum, learning to write with distractions, and that the writing process is ever changing for her.
  • The Oatmeal reports the good news that enough money was raised to purchase the land that Nikolai Tesla once had a laboratory on. There might just be a Goddamn Tesla Museum in our future.
  • On a more series note, Allie @ Hyperbole and a Half is back with a candid look at depression and how it's not easy pulling yourself out of it. I seriously applaud her willingness to be honest about what she's gone through and I wish her the best of luck in her battle.
Here's to a crazy week coming up!



    Also. Is that a Jodi Redford book I see? I NEED MORE JODI IN MY LIFE.

    1. Yesssss.... I have the 2nd book in Jodi's series for review and since I LOVE her books, I decided to read the first one first.

  2. I'll be reading at midnight too :D only one more hour for me!

    Happy reading!

  3. I have always meant to do Bout of Books, but just haven't found the time lately. Good luck!

    Have a great week!

    1. Awwww... If you're going to read at all during the week, you can join us!

  4. That is SO cool about Tesla. I just really discovered who he is and what he contributed to humanity when I watched The Men Who Built America on the History Channel. Thanks for sharing!

    1. My son and I discuss Tesla ALL THE TIME. I can't even tell you why, we just do. LOLOLOL!
