BA’s 2013 End of Year Countdown

I mentioned in my last update I was still trying to see if I could include an end-of-year question post for BA as an extended part of the Posting Challenge.

At first I thought it might be too much with everything that’s been going on, but then I had an idea. Why not have it as a countdown to 2014? You can do all these in one post, or you can do what I’m going to do. I’m going to do one for each day leading up to the New Year.

I’ve included a little explanation for all of them. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I need a little nudge before my brain decides to wake up. Take them as they are or leave them and interpret the topics in your own way. This goes too for how you set the post up. Make it yours. Continue reading

BA News: Coming up, My Life with BA, Reading Challenges, & Posting Challenge

Hello book lovers! November is not kind to my blogging habit and I mostly abandoned blogging for four-five weeks. Time, and my obsession with my novel’s word count, got the better of me. My plans to blog regularly disappeared and I ended up with a few scattered scheduled posts.

I have mentioned in the past I am behind on everything, but guess what? I’m still behind and now even more so. With NaNo, and life, I haven’t been reading much. My life is far more involved and busy than it has been in a very long time. My issue now with being able to read is not about if I’m well enough to read, but if I have the time to read.

Time to read and time to blog. Continue reading

2012 Challenges Summary: BA’s Get Steampunk’d & Go Indie Reading Challenges

Just Interrupting: It’s my birthday today! I’m 30 now… I’m getting old, oh jeez! So I wanted to wish everyone else with a birthday today a happy one, a happy birthday to all the February babies, and a happy unbirthday to everyone else. Basically, have a great day everyone.

Now, carry on…

To hail to the new year, albeit belatedly, I’m sharing all the links you’ve shared during BA’s 2012 reading challenges.The Get Steampunk’d and Go Indie challenges are on the smaller side compared to the other ones and have less links as a result so I’m combining them.

Today it is all about the Get Steampunk’d reading challenge aimed at surrounding yourself with the imagination of a steam-powered world. The Go Indie challenge aimed at broadening your horizons by not sticking to traditionally published books or books sold via the big publishing houses. Small printing presses, independant presses, and self-pubbed is the go. See who signed up, discover what everyone was reading, and learn about their reading year.

I’ve broken up the links into three sections – Participants, Your Reviews, and Your Experiences – in order to make it more user friendly. Continue reading
