My great intentions of reading while in hospital for a few days at the start of the month never eventuated. My heavy brain just couldn’t cope with reading, and it’s taken me a few weeks to get back into it. But here’s what my reading tells about me.
Storybundle offers themed packages of Indie books for a reader-defined payment of as little as $4 (an average of $10). The current package is for Dr Who fans. Go get it before they are gone in three days.
This post is participating in the 10 Day Writing Blogger Challenge, Day Eight.
The alternative prompt for this challenge asks us to Pay it Forward, and profile another writer’s blog post with our response. Today I’m profiling Gabriela Pereira’s excellent site, DIYMFA, but ranting against the whole Reading Like a Writing message found on a must-bookmark post.
Another reading log post from me, covering the previous week. Surreptitiously, this post is falling on Day Seven of the 10 Day Writing Blogger Challenge, which asks us to profile 2 books we’ve read and loved lately. And I never planned it.
The next reading log won’t be for a couple of weeks at least – I am going into hospital for a week or so – lots of reading and not much else, I suspect. Afterwards, look out for a large reading log.
My reading log and quick reviews for my reading week are listed below.
Due to my current bout with Fijian flu, I’m a couple of days late on the monthly Indie Life post, but wanted to incorporate this visual book review, relevant to Indie Authors.
Joanna Penn is well-known to writers with her www.thecreativepenn.com top writing website, and she’s just come out with a new book for writers – How to Market a Book. Although she says (quite rightly) that marketing is relevant to both traditionally published and self-published authors nowadays, the book concentrates very much on aspects of marketing and publishing up to Amazon for Indie writers. The book is an excellent reference tool, and I’m including my 5 star review from Goodreads below the graphic review.
I’m back from ten days in the Fijian sun, but arrived home with the worst bout of flu I’ve had in years, so am incapable of doing much more than sleeping a lot, and doing a quick roundup of my holiday reading. Cricket sounds…in my head. See you soon, once I extract myself from the duvet.
Oh, and you were right – apart from tapping into a reading log, I did no writing whilst on holiday.
