I Prepare for a Very Busy Month | Sunday Summary #22

With Blog Ahead, the CYBILS, and Virtual Fantasy Con in October I have been very busy getting ready. Thankfully I have some extra time off this month.

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.

The Good: 


Cybils nominations have opened. If you have a favorite Children's, MG, or YA book that was published in the last 12 months, please consider nominating it. (The audiobooks category is MG only for this, the first, year.) For more information, see the shiny new "2016 Cybils Awards" option on the far right of my Menu above.


The Bad: I wasn't able to draft as many posts as I had hoped yesterday, since Booklikes was really slow. / I have a huge stack of dirty dishes, and another of clean laundry, that I really have to quit ignoring.


Still Seeking: Non-erotic Shifter books/series recommendations (see the Mon post below for the link with more information).

Exploring Cyberspace

"The same way we all have potholes, we all have positive triggers that can point us + our day in the right direction. If you can figure out what your positive triggers are – a super quick workout, a screen-free meal, time outside – you can lovingly force yourself to do them FOR JUST 10 EVER-LOVING MINUTES and change the rest of your day."
