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.

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

Behind the Desk
(My life behind the scenes)

  • This week was all about the GRE for me! Study, study, study – and hardly any reading at all. I feel slightly guilty about that, but I’m still just not in the mood, I guess.
  • I found out about something that may mean REALLY BIG AWESOME NEWS next week. We’re waiting for approval from one more person, and then I can tell you, but in the meantime, I could use any luck you want to send my way!

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

  • Alissa (The Grammarian’s Reviews) wrote a post on blogging versus personal life. It got me thinking about my personal reasons for blogging in a way I haven’t before.
  • Kristilyn (Reading in Winter) talked about things she’s learned since she started blogging. Oh, and it’s her blogiversary month, so you’ll probably want to stalk her for all the great posts she’ll be doing!
  • YALSA’s “The Hub” had an interesting discussion of the next big thing in fantasy. Since I’m a pretty much only a fantasy/sci-fi reader, and I like YA, I found it fascinating.

      Thank you! :) I don’t feel like I’m doing great – I didn’t read ANYTHING this week! But I haven’t been adding TOO many, so that helps lol.

    The GRE! eeeeep! I cannot be more thankful I didn’t have to take that sucker for social work. Although now, I have to take my licensing exam. lol

    Good luck to you!
