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.

(This week on Creativity’s Corner)

Behind the Desk
(My life behind the scenes)

It was a good week! (Well, except for that day when my servers went down and I lost everything since JUNE. But let’s not dwell on that.) I spent a lot of time catching up on things I couldn’t do while I was busy making sure all my apps got in on time. I got to see my best friend from college and we got to watch The Hobbit together. (I need the soundtrack. Like now. KTHXBAI!) AND I am 100% ready for Christmas, shopping and wrapping-wise. Now it’s just bake cookies this weekend and then BRING IT ON! 😀

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

There’s lots this week, just like I promised. You guys did lots of awesome stuff while I was busy!

  1. Yay! The Hobbit! I got to see it yesterday. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. :)

  2. Ooh! I have Valkyrie Rising. I think I’m going to save it for Seriously Series but I’m looking forward to it like whoa!

  3. I plan to read The Hobbit before I see it, but who knows … hubs may want to see it Christmas week, so I guess I should get on it!

    I read some reviews, but usually only of books that I’ve read … I hate ruining a book for myself!
