The Sunday Post #55: Harry Potter



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.

Life

Another week has flown by and it’s already July. Damn, time goes by fast. This week I had to work the nightshift till Tuesday morning. I had three nightshifts and they were really super busy. My job is busy a lot, but this was just crazy and I was exhausted when they were done. But I planned some stuff to do this week and didn’t let my tiredness get me down.

Monday it was the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone, and as a real Harry Potter fan I got super excited about everything Harry Potter on tv, on the web and even on the radio. It was definitely a great week for us Harry Potter fans! To celebrate I did a fun blog post on Tuesday, and on Wednesday I cleaned my book room and I finally created my Harry Potter shelve. I had been wanting to do this shelve for months but I just didn’t get to it. Now I finally did, and I alphabetized all the new books I received over the last couple of months. I’m super happy with the result. I even made a nice and cozy reading couch/nook. :D:D 




Unfortunately I had some back pains after my nightshift, and reorganizing books and standing on a ladder wasn’t really the best thing to do. So Thursday and Friday when I had to work, I couldn’t really do a lot because of the pain in my back. Blegh.. Thankfully it’s slowly getting better.

This weekend I’m free from work, and on Friday night and Saturday morning I went with my husband to my mom’s house to help with breaking down their kitchen. They are getting a new one next week, so the old one had to go away. I couldn’t do a lot with my back, but I did manage to help with some moral support. LOL!!

Books & Blogging

This week was another productive blogging week. I finally did my ‘The Mid-Year Freakout Book Tag’ post! It was really fun to do. I also managed to read a book I really wanted to finish this week. So I’m happy. And with my new reading area I’m planning to do a lot more reading this weekend!

Yesterday I also participated in the Blog Tour of 'Home Field' by Laurie Winter. Laurie wrote a Guest Post for me about True Love. So if you have the time, go check it out! ;)

How is everyone else doing? Did you get to reading what you wanted this week?

  1. I hope your back is back to being good now, Maureen, it's so hard to do anything at all when it hurts, and even more so, I'm sure when you're a nurse.
    Your new book looks really good, and I love your book room!
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    1. Thanks Lexxie. It slowly feels better. But I hope it will still feel better when I have to work again tomorrow.
      I'm really curious to start 'The Rainbow Player'. And it's a gorgeous cover right?!
      Have a great week and happy reading!

  2. I drove out to the closest Barnes & Noble for the HP anniversary and they didn't have anything going on! They didn't have the anniversary editions and their HP table was smaller and emptier than usual! It was sad. :(

    1. Wow.. That is sad. They could have really had a great selling day if they did something with the 20 year anniversary I think. Too bad for them.
      Have a great week and happy reading!

  4. Love what you've done with the book room! What fun to curl up there. Sorry about the back issues, though. That happens to me, too, when I move things around in my house.

    I wish I were a Harry Potter fan....everyone who loves the books has a lot of fun. But I do love J. K. Rowling...her interviews, how she has achieved so much...and her satirical tweets to the Beast "running" the US right now...LOL.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Thanks Laurel. I'm really loving my book room. It has an amazing feel to it.. I can't wait to be able to curl up there with my book again..
      J.K. Rowling is definitely a fun author to follow on Twitter. She never gets boring! LOL!!
      Have a great week and happy reading!

  5. Back pain is the worst. I am glad you are starting to feel better. I love your Harry Potter shelf and new reading area! I liked what Facebook did in honor of the 20th anniversary. I can't believe it's been that long! I didn't catch the fever until the fourth book came out--I was in graduate school at the time, so definitely a late comer.

    I hope you have a great week, Maureen!

    1. Thanks Greg. My back is getting better everyday. I hope it stays away for a long long time now, but with my job it's kind of hard to be good for your back all the time.

  9. Coincidentally, I started watching the HP movies last Sunday, and I watched the third and fourth on the anniversary. And then the next disc froze. I am pissed with that boxed set purchase. :( Your shelves and the nook look FANTASTIC! I love it!!
