Bought, Bagged and Wrapping it Up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookviews and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews, Talk Supe and Caffeinated Reviewer.
STS #152 – Bought Borrowed & Bagged #102
Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is all about the latest additions to your library – virtual or actual, with books that are bought, borrowed, won or ARCs you will be reading soon. Bought Borrowed and Bagged is a homage to to Barron’s Books and Baubles from KMM’ Fever series, and is hosted by Braine over at Talk Supe. Without further ado, here’s what I bought, borrowed or bagged this past week:
Thank you HarperCollins, Howard Books and Edelweiss!
Thank you Tantor Media!
The Sunday Post # – Wrapping it Up
Kim @ The Caffeinated Reviewer, is our hostess with the mostest for the weekly Sunday Post where I’m wrapping things up. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.
My week ended up being more busy than anticipated, as instead of just a couple of hours of substitute teaching, I ended up with 12… Yesterday, I had one class that was quite difficult, especially one student who talked back and showed a complete lack of respect. It was exhausting! And it reminded me why I prefer long-term stints. Hopefully, an English teacher will have a happy announcement to make soon (a high school teacher, if possible!) and I’ll be the one they call in for the rest of the year 😉
I didn’t really read much this week, as I spent my free time working on my MA thesis. I haven’t exactly written very much (I kind of feel like Cal Lightman in ‘Lie to Me’) but I have sharpened my focus.
This Week’s Freddy in Action:
This guy has had a hard week! On Monday morning, he was castrated… One of the reasons we decided to do this is that we don’t want him running off! We have an enclosed back yard, but if he really wanted to, he might be able to leave. And as there are a lot of dogs around, he could be tempted when a female dog is in heat. The only thing he’d find just outside of our garden is a quite heavily trafficked road. And dachs hunds aren’t all that easy to spot from a car, you know. He’s been a real trooper, though! Already on Monday afternoon, he was in great shape, and I’m really impressed with his energy. Go Freddy, go!
