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 and banner borrowed from On a Book Bender]

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

  • It was a short week this week, because I’m still recovering from vacation. I reviewed Shadow and Boneby Leigh Bardugo and Storm Front by Jim Butcher, and that was it.

Behind the Desk
(My life behind the scenes)

  • I got a glimpse at the tentative work schedule for the Christmas season this week. Give you a hint: Christmas at a chocolate store = hell. I felt so overwhelmed that I’ve been reduced to rereading favorites instead of working on my Unbreaking the Shelves goals.
  • This week at community band I was asked to: play a solo on xylophone (which I’ve only been playing for a year, and honestly suck at) and learn the saxophone because they were short one on the jazz band. It was an interesting week!

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

  1. I keep reading books from my own-must-read list only to add more to the list and end up right back where I was. *glares at Unbreaking the Shelves*

    I hope things get less overwhelming for you soon!

  2. I like all your goals! I should revisit my goals for Unbreaking the Shelves … AND I should stop buying books, but I see I’m not the only one who got The Casual Vacancy! But, it’s not holding my interest …

    Yay for so much music! I never knew there was such thing as a xylophone solo … hope you do well! And learning the saxophone? Nice!

    Have a great week, Anne!

      Lol, at the moment all my goals are looking a liiiiiiittle optimistic *eyes them nervously* I’m sure you’re not the only one who got Casual Vacancy – though I didn’t actually buy it. The “added” section for me is just what I’ve added to the list on GoodReads, since I don’t actually *buy* books. Which reminds me… *runs off to write the post I owe you*

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