Weekly Reading Roundup
June 11, 2012 22 Comments
No It’s Monday meme from me today, I’m not linking up with anyone. I’ve been linking up with lots of people all week last week, because of Armchair BEA so this week, I need a rest! Don’t worry, if you leave a comment I will visit you and I will visit the blogs that I’m subscribed to. Just not anyone else.
So, Armchair BEA – phew! I had great fun and found some great new blogs. I was in the commenting committee which meant every day I visited a certain number of blogs from the daily linky list (as well as the blogs I subscribe to) and it was very busy. But great fun.
- I read a book a day every day last week. Was it fun? Check out this post.
- I started at the gym and had 3 sessions. I bought myself a beautiful tiny MP3 player so I can have some music going while exercising.
Books I finished this week: 8
