The Sunday Post # 71: Bugs & Reading



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ Its a chance to share news ~ A Post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

This week was pretty good reading wise. After months of feeling like I didn’t have enough time for my books I now feel like I’ve definitely did have time to read. I worked Monday till Wednesday, but in my 45 minute lunch break I did some reading. And this is not something that is done all that much here. But I’m feeling good about it and will try to keep doing it. And since on Wednesday, the #HoHoHoRAT started, I stayed in bed a long time to read on Thursday. It was the best morning, and I tried not to feel too bad about staying in bed so long. LOL!

On Thursday evening I had a goodbye- dinner for one of my colleagues. And on Friday I spent the day at my mom’s place, cooking and watching movies. In the evening my husband joined us, and we had a fun evening. 

This weekend, till Thursday I have to work again. But today, Saturday,  my grandma is having her birthday party in the evening. It should definitely be a fun night saying the family.

Books & Reading:

Like I said, I had a good reading week. I tried to read as much as possible, slept less to read longer and took my book with me to work (something I already did for years, but I never had the time to read it). I finished two books so far this book. Whoohoo!! :D 

This week was Maureen’s Books Promotions first event, the Release Event of ‘After Lucas’ by Tudor Robins. Everything went pretty well, but on Monday our computer crashed because of a bug/virus thingy. Out of nowhere a computerized voice started saying ‘Warning, warning’. It was damn freaky and as a result it took some while to get everything working again. So I managed to do the promotions for all my posts, thank god for my iPhone, but working on my posts for next week and visiting all of you guys didn’t work out as planned. Thankfully we now have a brand new anti-virus program and I don’t seem to have lost to much stuff. So.. I hope to be able to catch up with all of you this week.

This week I also received my two Harry Potter books I won. Two weeks ago I received an email from Every Free Chance Books letting me know I won there $50 Book Depository Giveaway. I picked out these two beauties!! I loooove them!!

Don’t forget to enter the #Giveaway on the Release Event (see the banner on the right side) and see ‘My Favorite.. Gift’. It’s damn pretty  if you ask me! :D

Since it’s still #HoHoHoRAT I’m of to read some more. I hope you all had a great week!!

  2. Typical for a computer virus to strike at the very worst time. Glad all went ok for you though. I think I need to sleep less to read more too, I definitely need to do something as my reading time is way to limited right now. Enjoy your new books, I keep eying up A Winters Tale on NG, but haven't hit request yet.

    1. Ow I know.. it was so frustrating! From all the weeks to get a virus.. this week was the worst timing ever! Blegh.. But in the end it worked out thankfully.
      You should definitely hit that request button. I already read 'A Winters Tale' and it was amazing. I love that series! And you can read it as a standalone! ;)
      Have a great week and happy reading!

  3. Bugs? I'm reading your headline and I'm like "how and where could there possibly be bugs??" :D I guess I'll find out as I finish reading.
    Oh, you got the awesome Harry Potters :) congrats!
    Oh dang, that's what the bugs are about. That sucks! Yes, the phone sometimes saves your life :) don't give up, it's the evil demons of bad luck trying to discourage you from your first promo :)
    Oh wow, congrats on winning the giveaway! That is absolutely awesome. That's at least 3 books!! Looks like you've had a great week :)

    1. Whaha... I think I would prefer mosquitos or ants etc. This virus made me feel so helpless.. For bugs we have sprays and I know how to deal with them! LOL!
      I'm loving my new Harry Potter books. They are so pretty!
      Have a great week and happy reading!

    1. It's terrible isn't it?! So frustrating. And so out of the blew. But maybe I'm a little clueless when it comes to viruses etc.
      Have a great week and happy reading.

  5. I'm glad your computer is back up. I've had so many laptops die on me in the last few years. It is so frustrating.

    I'm so glad you like the Harry Potter books!!! I need to get myself the History of Magic one. ;-)

    Your new arrivals look like fun reads. I'm going to have to check those out!

    Have a great week!

    1. It's definitely super frustrating. I could cry so frustrated did I feel. Horrible! Thankfully we got this virus scanner that cleared it all up.
      I loooove the new Harry Potter books. This definitely made my week. ;)Have a great week and happy reading!

  6. There is nothing better than staying on bed till late reading. I miss doing that. Sorry about the virus - things like that always seem to happen when a person needs a computer the most.

    Congratulations on winning those two Harry Potter books. I want to buy them, but they are very expensive (maybe I'll wait for Christmas).

    Happy readings & have a happy week.

    1. Thanks Tánia. Those books are definitely expensive. That's the reason I thought I'd buy them from the Giveaway money. They are really pretty though! Totally worth it! ;)
      Have a great week and happy reading!

  8. Sounds like a lovely week! I could have come back home on Tuesday and read, read, read if I had known I didn't need to go to my 3:00 appointment. I have finished two books this week since starting HOHOHO, so I still feel OK. Your Harry Potter books are SO pretty!!

    1. Thanks AJ. The virus definitely sucked. It would suck no matter what, but this week was just extra horrible. Thankfully it's better now.
