Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. This meme gives bloggers a chance to share with readers what we bought, borrowed, swapped, won or received for review each week. I also decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
I’ve picked up some very good books this past week, and have been up into the wee hours of the morning flipping the pages. Again. I’ve been better about fitting my fitness in this week. Two days at the gym pounding it n the treadmill and elliptical. I’ve also been practicing to participate in National Dance Day, which is Saturday, July 25th. So far I’ve learned both routines, so we’ll see how it goes! I promise not to chicken out this year.
Reading Challenge Update
I reached my original goal in the 2015 Goodreads Reading Challenge, which was to read 80 books this year. I have now increased my goal to 100 books. Last year I fell short of this goal by 2 books 🙁 I’ve also decided to join Wishful Ending’s Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon challenge which runs from September 14th to the 27th. This will help me tackle all of the books I have stocked on my kindle and ipad. That, and the fact I have sworn to stop buying books after this month until I can read all the books I’ve already purchased. I’m hoping this will help me purge, but also save money for my trip to Japan next year. Pray for me to have the sill to abstain.
Side note: I’ve moved my reading challenge progress from the blog’s sidebar to the reading challenge menu. I did this so I can accommodate blog tour, giveaway banners, and advertisements on the sidebar without it running super long past the posts. I hate that! Sorry for any confusion 😉
