WIR vectorstock_43821-1-1Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading.

A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

What else is going on?

ย I am so excited that I purchased my Laptop this week and should be getting it next week. That means I am back to being ahead on blogging and able to comment again on all my favorite blogs. I just can’t do it as good on my iPad. Some blogs work fine but some I type this big message and when I hit send it disappears. So I am so excited to finally have a computer to myself and when I type this post I don’t have to wait till later to set it up and soon I will be able to help with logos and such for anyone that needs them. YAY!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today is my daughters dance recital so I might not be able to comment on all of your Sunday Post until later in the day. I watched her rehearse and she is just so cute, she looks so lost and confused but it’s adorable. I will post pictures next week and if I get a good video, we’re not suppose to take video but I do anyway but sometimes it comes out really dark.

ย One kid is out and the other is almost out of school which means we will soon be hitting the Jersey Shore on the weekends to enjoy some nice RR&R (rest, relaxation and reading) ๐Ÿ˜‰

So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?

Let’s Chat…

Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!

Happy Reading

    • Drove me crazy how many times I had to rewrite something. Can’t wait to get it ๐Ÿ™‚ coyer should be fun this time around ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Great books but I’ve got to know…. what laptop did you get? We’re in the market so I’m curious what you settled on. I have an HP right now that’s been good to us but the video card is going and it’s just plain old. Memory isn’t the problem, just the RAM. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I AGREE – I hate commenting on the iPad!!! I gave up after so many times writing out the long comments and having them go poof! Do you have a keyboard for yours? I know, I’m full of questions today!!!

    I hope you enjoyed your girl’s recital ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great week ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I don’t mind your questions Lol.
      I was going to get a PC but I am to much of a MAC girl to do that. I know it’s more expensive but I really didn’t think I would be happy with a PC and what if I didn’t like it I would be stuck. So I got a Macbook Pro that will help me blog and do my graphic/Web stuff, My computer and tablets are all Mac also so everything will sync together which is great ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes I originally got the iPad so I can at least write reviews and do some blog visits and it was cheaper at the time then getting a laptop so I got the kids iPad too but I made sure mine came with a keyboard. It works great and I love it for writing review and blog posts but I started to realized it was getting more difficult to set up blog posts on. Now with the laptop I will be able to use both. I am hoping to be a lot more productive now.

      Have a great week Kristin ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I was DYING to ask you what you thought of it but I didn’t want to know anything yet lol. I heard you had to read Assassin’s Blade first but since you didn’t maybe you don’t I figured I would read it anyway maybe one novella at a time instead of it all in one sitting. I will see when I get started.

      Thanks for stopping by Naomi ๐Ÿ™‚

    • COYER is a lot of fun ๐Ÿ™‚ I am almost done with my first read and my review will be up Saturday for it. It’s part of COYER and MY TBR list post.
      I love my iPad it does a lot for me but not enough ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking forward to having my own computer again Lol

  4. I am so excited that Coyer has started, I’ll be starting my first book for Coyer this evening and it will be one of the books from my list. I hope I’ll be able to read quite some books from my sign-up post list.

    And yay for getting your own computer! I wouldn’t know what I would do without a own computer. Although i always hate those first few days with a new computer when you have to move your files and figure out how the new computer works.

    I hope you have a nice day and have fun at your daughters dance recital!

    • I have one book to finish before I start my sign up post plan. It’s so funny that the challenge is mine/kims but I still get so excited for it. This time around it has a lot more involved ๐Ÿ™‚

      The kids now think the desktop is offically theirs but no it’s still mine lol
      The best part of the laptop is I plan on starting from scratch with it and not transfer any files over just a few blogging pictures if I have to, I feel like I want a clean machine that is only mine for my new files ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. OOh nice! Those are all new to me! Hope you enjoy them all!

    Come see my STS post if you can! (for some reason the comment box doesn’t like my url)
