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)

Last weekend my grandfather passed away. While we expected it for a while since he was 91 and his health has been failing steadily, it’s always difficult. We were happy to celebrate a life well lived, and to have a majority of the family together to celebrate.

 

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

I completely ignored my reader for the past week. I’ll probably go through it this afternoon or Monday so you’ll be inundated with links next week, I promise!

  1. I’m sorry about your grandpa, Anne. Death of a grandparent–whether you are expecting it or not–is always difficult. *hugs*
