The Sunday Post #89 (11.8.15)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. I'm also going to link this up with Kathryn's It's Monday post over at Book Date.  
        

I've been a bit MIA lately, but I'm back and hopefully there shouldn't be any more crazy absences for a while!!! So, here's what's been going on...As of Oct 31, I have left my day job. I had started a business back in April and was doing both for a while and fortunately my business has taken off enough that I can do that without having to have another job. So, no more 2 jobs for me!!! It also means that I should have more time for reading, blogging and getting stuff done around my house! First up on that last item - de-cluttering and organizing everything!!! I know this will take a while, but I'm actually excited to get started - plus, I figure a good audio book should make the task a little more palatable ;)

Have a great week everyone!!!

  4. How exciting about your new business! And definitely great to not have 2 jobs anymore. I need to get back to Pretending to Dance. I was reading it and enjoying it several weeks ago but had to put it down to finish something else and just haven't picked it back up. Have a great week!

  6. How nice not to have two jobs to juggle now and a business where you call the shots and no doubt will be passionate about. Not to even mention all the reading you'll get done!

  7. Ah, what wonderful news. Congratulations! I bet it feels great that your business has taken off and that you can plough your 'professional' energy in to your own thing. If that makes sense!

    Happy Reading... Or should I say listening with the audio book?!

  9. Congratulations on leaving the day job. I've been working on decluttering too with mixed success. Come see what I am reading here. Happy reading!

  10. I hope you are liking Pretending To Dance - it was an ok read for me. I normally love Diane Chamberlain's books, but this one wasn't a favorite. I think the bad teenager choices put me off. :)

    I LOVED Along the Infinite Sea.

    The Last September was pretty good too.

    ENJOY this week.
