It's crazy that January is already over! Here are some of my highlights:
Awesome new bookcases!!! Check out http://www.smartfurniture.com/ and look at the Smart Shelves
I've gotten hooked up with some excellent publishers and have a stack of ARC books to review/give away in the upcoming weeks.
I met some of my favorite blog/nest friends this month and it was awesome! Best weekend of the year so far and I'm looking forward to February in the ATL!
I also had my first blog giveaway and I'll be mailing books to Anna at http://mrsgreat83.blogspot.com/ tomorrow. Look forward to another giveaway next week...
Start of my second year of grad school - or is that a lowlight?
I've read more books this month (and more pages) than I did in any month last year, so I'm off to a good start on my goal of reading more this year than last year. I'll close with my list of books read this month:
