In My Mailbox is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. :)
Hi. :) Yeah, so, I'm way ahead for NaNoWriMo, but then I caught the burnout (which wasn't surprising). On Tuesday I stopped writing early because I was tired and didn't want to spend the whole night writing, so instead I rearranged my bookcase and forgot that some of my books are signed. Oops. ;) Then I took Friday off to read. And my ankle is fine. I saw our family doctor and he said I probably stepped wrong and aggravated the scar tissue. I'm not surprised, considering it stopped hurting after 18 hours.
I also brought up something that other people agreed with, that when you make that first e-mail to a publisher about requesting review copies you're always super nervous. I sent off e-mails twice this week and was on pins and needles every time I got a new e-mail. It's weird, because they want bloggers and they want the publicity, and you want the books, but if you sound grabby then there's no way they'll enjoy sending you books. I love it when they send me books. They're awesome for sending me books, because I'm a shy, over-excitable book nerd. ;)
I've started my list for the 2012 Debut Author Challenge, which will probably be the only challenge I do next year. So many books to read.
Let me know if you'd be interested in me putting up a post that would essentially be me live-blogging while reading a book. I'd probably totally spoil it, telling you what parts I liked and what parts were weird and so on, so if you have any book suggestions, feel free to put them in the comments. :) Considering it's been out for two years, I'm thinking of live-blogging as I read Paper Towns.
