Month In Review January 2015!


Happy Almost February! 

It's nearly the month of love and we're half-crazed with all
of the wonderful stuff that's going on! We can also hardly 
wait for the Newbery Award announcements 
(Go "A Snicker of Magic"!!!!!!) 

We've been quite proud of ourselves this month as we've kept up with our goals to participate more in memes and I have kept up with MY goal to vlog at least once a week... which has NOT been easy due to camera difficulties.

It was an awesome start to 2015 and we're looking forward to the rest of this year! Woo!

Here we go!

Book Gathering #34

Going along with our 2015 Blog goal to participate more in memes, Auggie-Talk is starting back up with the weekly Book Gatherings. We'll be participating in Stacking the Shelves, with Tynga's Reviews  and Sunday Post by Caffeinated Book Reviewer

I only had one book to share... until yesterday, when I happened upon a used bookstore. (Ok, so I didn't "happen upon it". I actively went there, on purpose, with every intention of purchasing something). Anyway, we know how that story goes. I left with quite a few new-to-me friends!

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
If you want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!

The Sunday Post

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 for the week on our blog. This is your news post, so personalize it! Include as much as you want or as little. Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies. Link up once a week or once a month, you decide. Book haul can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books..share them!
