Yes, I finally finished listening to the new Unabridged version of Battlefield Earth; I also completed all my blogging goals for the week.
The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer, is a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Caution: Her site has sidebar ads that sometimes contain cover images which may be offensive to some.

I am sooo relieved to finally be finished with Battlefield Earth. The original plan had been to listen to it when I had some time off work back in April. But I didn't receive it until the end of the month, and by that time I had other things on my plate. This will free up time for me to read another whole book per week.
I am well-pleased with myself, since I met my blogging goals this week. I am now 1, count them, 1 review & 1 discussion ahead (you have to start somewhere).

So I was in the neighborhood and someone mentioned you guys at some point. I thought to myself, “Why not email them and see if they have SOMETHING that will impress me?” So yeah, give it your best shot. To be honest, I’m not expecting much from you guys. I saw some title you’re offering. Harry Potter? Yeah, okay. Send me them and I’ll tell you what I think. Just don’t expect much. To be honest, I’m really busy right now.

I read/listened to the following for the first time:
I actually got The Raven Boys audiobook for free several years ago through Sync, but hadn't ever gotten around to listening to it. All the hype around the series finale has inspired me to give it a shot.

Talk to Me (pretty please)
- If you blog ahead, how far ahead do you like to get?
- Do you request Review Copies (ARCs or otherwise)? Do you request them directly, or through a site like Edelweiss or Negalley?
- Are you a fan of "The Raven Cycle?" Did you like the final book?
- If you are a first time visitor, how did you discover my blog?
- I recently debuted my redesigned blog. What do you think?
