The Sunday Post AKA What’s On My (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand? 12-2-12

I probably should should be writing about where my nightstand is, instead of what’s on it!

My nightstand, and the rest of our worldly goods, are probably pulling into Boise, Idaho tonight. At least, that was the driver’s next stop. Us, we’re in Seattle. Until the furniture arrives–hopefully Wednesday, possibly Thursday, we’re in a hotel.

Effectively being dissed by the cats. My promises of a future mega-cat-tree are falling on pointedly deaf ears. Or deaf pointed ears.

In spite of the kitty dissing, and other moving events, the blog went on. So what happened?

First, we have a winner! The winner of the Fall in Love Blog Hop is Katie Amanda. She’ll have her chance to fall in love with my favorite Chicago wizard, Harry Dresden. The prize was the winner’s choice of any book in the Dresden Files series under $10.

Hot Holiday Hop
Stacking the Shelves (24)

So what about next week? Seriously, there’s a next week? Yes, there’s a next week. And a next post, and a next review.

Because of the holiday season, there are a lot of blog hops this month. Isn’t it marvelous? So many different places to get a chance to win books and gift cards. On Saturday, Reading Reality will be participating in the Holiday Gifts of Love Blog Hop, along with over 200 other bloggers and authors.

But the rest of the week is wide open. And wildly open. I’m looking at putting together my best of the year lists soon, and my most anticipated books for next year list. That made me realize I need to get out my most anticipated list for this year, and whoa, there are some books on there I forgot to read! Whoops!

So many books, so little time.

Speaking of time (don’t you just love segues?) I have a question for all of the bloggers out there who have day-jobs? How do you do it? Do you have any words of wisdom you’d care to impart as I start my new full-time job on Wednesday?

I’m going to have plenty of time to read on the bus on the way to and from work every day. Finding time to write is going to be a challenge. But so worth it!

  1. I work part time and I’m a mother and wife, so not sure if my wisdom will help..but organization is totally what keeps me sane. I prep all of my posts one Saturday a month. This is the first half of the post that has book title, release date, cover, synopsis and buy links, plus labels and schedule date. I write each review immediately after I finish book, and have a sweet little 2-3 week cushion of posts scheduled, so I am always working on things three weeks out. I visit blogs twice a day about 25 in the am and 10-15 at night. I will gladly forgo sleep to read and function on about 5-6 hrs a night..LOL Hope the move goes smoothly and kitty forgives you!

    1. Kimba, you are amazing! And that helps a ton! I’m only going to be two out of your three, and I think the easier two, since I’ll only be working full-time and a wife.
      A 2-3 week cushion, that’s a goal to work toward. Wow! I’ve had the luxury of just being a day or two ahead, and I know that won’t be possible anymore.
      You really rock!
