I thought I would let you know that I have started reviewing some books for an American group. The blog is called You Gotta Read It and is situated here.
Each week, you get a choice of books that you can choose to review. It is kind of a grab and go kind of situation, but you can share good books too with other reviewers. I am pretty sure they are still looking for other reviewers, so if you are interested I would suggest leaving a note in the comments.
The books are quite varied and a few have a high sexual content, which does not really appeal to me, but I just can't resist a new book!
They are mainly in PDF format, so you just download them on the PC and read them from there. If I get to really enjoy it, I may need to invest in an IReader, though I have no idea which one I would buy, so any ideas from anyone using them, do let me know.
This won't affect the other books I read, so I will still be working through my challenges and reading similar books to everyone else. It will not affect my blog, as I love that too much too.
I am presently reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, which I am just loving to bits. I have also ordered from the library The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and The Post Office Girl by Stefan Zweig, which after reading such rave reviews I am eager to read.
I am having a funny old week as I really haven't had a lot of time to be on the computer. I have some of my family staying and we have been out everyday, going for long walks and shopping trips, so I have been really busy. At least it will help the weight loss, which is 1lb off of 1 and 1/2 stone - so keep your fingers crossed for me today that it comes off.
The kids and I have all had flu like symptoms this week, which has really dragged, but are now feeling much better. I have to say I have been afraid to tell people that I have been sick as they draw away from so quickly, concerned that really I might just have swine flu and I am keeping it from them in order to silently spread it. Paranoia or what!
I am participating in Alaines 15 Minute Challenge which can be found here. I am not doing very well this week, as all I managed to do was clean my conservatory windows on Monday. I really should have waited to start this challenge on Monday when my house goes back to normal. I promise Alaine to start properly on Monday. Check out the giveaway Alaine has on her blog too.
Talking of blog giveaways, Naida is celebrating her 2nd blogaversary and is giving away three lovely books worldwide. If you want to wish her a happy blogaversary and enter her competition then you will find it here.
Thanks for listening to me natter on - off to prepare dinner! Chicken korma here I come!
