The Sunday Post AKA What’s On My (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 3-31-13

Sunday PostThis is Easter Sunday for those who celebrate that holiday. It is also still Passover, as my mother reminded me in our regular Sunday phone call.

On the interwebs, it seems to be Peep season. The Seattle Times runs a Peep contest every year. One of the winners this year created an all Peep version of the Seattle Central Library, my place of work. It really does kind of look like this on a sunny day. Not that we get all that many of those. You really should check out the complete gallery of winners. The peep comet, named Peep Impact, is particularly awesome.


But these peeps below are absolutely my favorite Peeps for this year. For a science fiction fan, what’s not to love?

Cthulhu Peeps

There are other favorites this week, if favorites is defined as favored to win. Or winning your favorites. Whatever. Bethanne S. won Nina Croft’s Bittersweet Blood giveaway, and Lisa C. took away a copy of Jeanette Grey’s Take What You Want.

There’s still plenty of time to be tempted by Kathryn Barrett’s giveaway of her new “not-an-Amish-romance” Temptation, and to get in on the tourwide giveaway inspired by Christine Bell’s Down and Dirty. And if that’s not enough there’s the Hero of My Heart Blog Hop, starting today and running through April 10.

This coming week is a big week here at Reading Reality, because April 4-5 is my second annual Blogo-Birthday! Woohoo!

On April 4, Reading Reality will be two years old. I suppose that means it’s a toddler. April 5 is the blogger’s birthday. I’m slightly older than two. A bit.

I want you all to celebrate with me, so I’m giving away some of my favorite books, and a couple of gift cards so that you can pick out your own new favorites.

Come share the fun!
