Personal

This week was a lot better than last week. Only one mosquito bite on the upper arm, and though annoying, not as bad as last week with them on my hands. I worked this weekend,and though I’m really tired, it was good to work again like this. Unfortunately the nail of my thumb went double and started bleeding. So it hurts when I use it. From these weekly things you will notice I am an unlucky klutz and always hurt myself.

Two weeks ago I bought 2 ebooks. One downloaded easily, but the other one doesn’t work. I’ve had contact with customer service about it, and followed all their instructions, but nothing made it work. I haven’t heard back from them in over a week, and I’m a bit annoyed. All my other ebooks work so at this point I am doubtful the problem lies at my end. I’ll try and contact them again this week, but I fear I have lost money on an ebooks I can’t read. 😦

I added a page in the drop down menu of reviews. A-Z of authors. I also finally used my NetGalley account. I got two galleys from there for now. I’d like to use NetGalley moderately.

OHMYBOOKATHON

This week the Dutch Oh My Book are hosting a read-a-thon from July 16th to July 21st. Initially I wasn’t going to participate as my husband is still home from work, and I passed up another read-a-thon I always participate in. But I’d been having a hard time picking up The Iron Queen and I needed a bit of motivation. So far it has worked.

  1. When I first started using NetGalley, I went a little crazy, and before I knew it, had eleven books! Then I realized that we were “graded” in percentages by how many we review, so after quickly reading and reviewing those, I’ve tried to keep to about two books at a time on my shelf.

    Enjoy your books! I’m off to check out some of your links…btw…love your blog header, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. I’ve seen that happen a lot with other people over on Tumblr. There is also a time restraint as the books get archived and such so I figured I’d keep the pressure low. Takes the fun away when you have to rush.

      Thank you. πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve yet to use NetGalley, though I created an account. I told myself that I first have to read a lot of books I own but are still on my TBR before I start reading any kind of ebook again.
