The Sunday Post #74: Becoming a Dot Com



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ Its a chance to share news ~ A Post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

The beginning of this week felt like it went by super slow. Seriously.. time took way longer then normally. LOL!! Well.. I always feel like that when I have a vacation coming up. But now it even felt worse than the previous time. So I probably was a complete nag at work. But after working from last Friday till this Wednesday, and not a lot of sleep, I’m glad to say my husband and I have vacation. And boy was I looking forward to this. We definitely needed this time off, to spend time together and just do nothing.

So we’re staying home, reading, relaxing, some cleaning and just be together. I have this Nursing event on Wednesday, but other than that we’re doing nothing. At least nothing we ‘have’ to do. And it feels really good.

Books & Blogging:

Since I’ve been off work since Thursday I spend a lot more time blogging and reading than in the previous weeks. And maybe you’ve already seen it, but I got myself a .com for Maureen’s Books and Maureen’s Books Promotions. And I’m super excited about that. Obviously, nothing changed really but I just love the look and sound of maureensbooks.com rather than maureensbooks.blogspot.com. Yes.. I’m a happy blogger!


Slowly on I catching up on my reading. I’m still behind but I feel like I will be able to catch up this week.  

I’m still looking for bloggers who would like to Sign-Up for my two upcoming Book Promo’s. So I’m shamelessly promoting them here and will give you a little more info. ;)

On December 14th there is a Book Promo for ‘Grigori: A Royal Dragon Romance’ by Lauren Smith. This a Paranormal Romance novel that was published on October 17th. There will be an awesome Excerpt to share.

In January there will be a ten day long Book Promo for ‘Aphrodite’s Tears’ by Hannah Fielding. This is a Romantic novel that will be published on January 25th. Each day of the promo will bring a Unique teaser. And not to mention there will be an awesome Giveaway to share with a Signed Copy of the book and a gorgeous Greek Mythology Scarf (worth £180) as a price!!


Have a great week and happy reading!
