Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is where Tara @ 25 Hour Books and Amanda @ On a Book Bender shamelessly plug each other, share the fantastic posts, giveaways, or whatever else we’ve found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books we plan on reading in the coming week. [Description borrowed from On a Book Bender]

The Corner Newsstand
(This week on Creativity’s Corner)

Behind the Desk
(My life behind the scenes)

  • I’m back to blogging regularly (I hope!) and I’m taking the blog off hiatus. Unfortunately I’ll still have the problems of things like taking the GRE and applying to grad school and blah blah blah. But I’m trying!
  • I’m around 20 reviews behind, and it sucks. Despite this, I spent the day laying around in bed and reading, because I have a cold, and this is what you do. I try to ignore that logical part of me that tells me it would be just as restful to be writing reviews.
  • I’ve been listening to The Night Circus as narrated by Jim Dale… and I love it! This is the first time I’ve paid attention to an audiobook (even though technically this is a “reread”). Dare I even say that the audiobook is better? Maybe not quite yet, but this is definitely improvement!

Around the Corner
(Blog posts I found awesome since the last post)

  • Amanda and Kelly are being awesome again (as usual) and they’re kicking off Unbreaking the Shelves, a challenge that runs to the end of the year and encourages you to get on top of that TBR pile! I joined in and you should too!
  • Misty, the Book Rat, complained about THE WORST review request ever! I got the exact same email, and since I’m not accepting requests right now, it went straight in the trash. I didn’t even read it close enough to see if it got all the info right (they didn’t on hers). Be that as it may, I loved her response!
  • Lori at Pure Imagination talks about her book breakup process. Mine is fairly similar, only it doesn’t happen nearly so often, and mostly only with books that I promised to review (though that shouldn’t happen anymore, right?)
  • Jamie, The Perpetual Page-Turner, got over her carsickness! WOOOHOOO! This has never been a problem for me, but if you need tips, her posts gives plenty of ideas and tips for those who do suffer.

  1. Again? You mean STILL. We are still being awesome. 😉

    Also, yay for coming off hiatus!

  2. I hear Jim Dale is a great narrator. Still, I’m listening to the Stephen Fry versions of Harry Potter, instead. The Night Circus would be a great listen!

    Yay for you being off hiatus!

    • Anne says:

      I actually only picked up The Night Circus BECAUSE Jim Dale was narrating – I had listened to the Harry Potter ones before, and I was looking to use up Audible credits before shutting down my membership, so I searched him. Of what came up, I knew the Night Circus was good, since I’d read it already, so yeah. You should definitely give it a listen!

Many older posts are currently under reconstruction. Please excuse the inconvenience.
