Monthly Wrap-up: May 2012

Posted June 1, 2012 | 10 Comments

Ahhh… June is here.  It is my favorite time of year – SUMMER!  Oh how I love the heat.  Summertime can either be a good thing or a bad thing when it comes to my reading and blogging time, because all I want to do is soak up the sun.  I’m going to try and get as much done during the 1st couple weeks of June and schedule stuff so I don’t have to worry about it.

I think May was probably my slowest reading and blogging month, even though I participated in the Bout of Books Read-a-thon.   I believe there will be another BoB in August that I’ll participate in.  There will also be the Wicked Wildfire Read-a-thon June 20-24th.  You can find out and sign-up for them by following the links.  If you’ve never participated in a read-a-long – you should!  They are a blast, especially if you have a couple drinks and try to keep up on the twitter chats.

Okay, so what DID I actually do in May?  Oh yeah, I moved the blog from Blogger to self-hosting on WordPress!  I’m really liking it.  Blogger was starting to really piss me off, so I’m glad I made the move when I did.  I still need to organize some of my pages and stuff, though.  Also…

There are also some great blog tours coming up that I’m excited about, so make sure to watch for them!


So what about you?  Do you get more or less reading done during summer?

  1. I love the monthly wrap-up! I’ve been on the fence about read-a-thons, but maybe I will give one a try. As for reading more or less in the summer, we shall soon find out. You’ve seen part of my list – whew! BTW, your “I’m so looking at you” comment CRACKED me UP! <3 YOU!

    Ooh you had a good month! I love that you moved to WP. Blogger pisses me off on a daily basis but I’m too much of a coward to move to any other site. 😀

    I definitely get less reading done in the summer as I can’t do much in the heat. This is going to sound terrible but I hate the heat. Mildly warm weather with some breeze is what I like, but HOT weather pisses me off more than Blogger. 😉 I complain about the cold in winter and then complain about the heat in summer. I guess I’m more British than I thought. 😛

  3. I’m so glad the move is going better for you than it did for me. I should have known better because I have really bad luck. LOL

    I’m really behind on my reading too. I wish I could afford more audiobooks so I could read while exercising.

    Great monthy, Christy. If you really like the heat, then you need to come visit me in South Texas. 🙂
