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)

Lots going on recently! This past weekend my family and I went to Washington D.C. to visit family, and we had a fantastic time. Look for a full recap on Obsessed with Creativity in the near future! Oh and not to rub it in or anything, but I challenged Kristilyn to a reading contest while I was on vacation (no TV, and whoever reads most wins) and I won! To be fair, I only won by 100 pages, so I’ve offered a rematch someday 😉

I feel like there’s something else… OH YEAH! IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! As of 3:59AM today (2/24) I am 24! I’ve been told this means it’s my “golden year” and it will be the best year of my life. I kinda doubt that, but still, it’s pretty cool to turn 24 on the 24th, right?

 

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

SO MANY GOOD POSTS! You guys definitely didn’t forget to be awesome while I was gone! There are a few on the same topics, so I’ve grouped them together to make it easier to read.

  1. lol. Everyone has a golden birthday. Mine was my 25th. Good thing you were born later in the month–my boyfriend had his golden birthday when he was three. o.O

    Happy Birthday, Anne!

  2. I see some Seriously Series movement! YAY!
