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.

Behind the Desk
(My life behind the scenes)

This week was pretty emotionally taxing. We spent the week visiting my Grandparents for Thanksgiving and Grandpa’s not doing so good. It was difficult to say the least, to think that the next time we go over there will probably be for the funeral.

  1. I’m sorry to hear your grandpa isn’t doing well, Anne! *hugs*

    And I think the timing was off for BOTH of us this year for NaNo. Do you think by next year I can learn time management? :)

    You read Ten! I want to read it! I’ve been waiting for it FOREVER at the library, but it’s still not in. And Diviners! And Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell! I have both of those on my shelf!

    Yay for not adding any books this week! I didn’t either — it feels good!

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